Fashion & Figure Skating

When I was a little girl I loved with Tara Lipinski, I thought she was the coolest thing ever.  Those sparkly costumes, those twirls, that gold medal, to 6 year old me she was perfection.  When she was on "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch" in '99, I died.  I had a poster of her on my wall, the whole shebang, she was my idol.  

Well fast forward 16 years & I still love watching the ice skating in the Winter Olympics just as much as I did when I was 6.  (This year I've been big on the ice dancing & really loved the gold medal performance by Meryl Davis & Charlie White, I mean it was flawless!)  Lucky for me one of my favorite former Olympians has been popping up in Sochi as a commentator, yup you guessed it: Tara Lipinski!  She has been all over with the ever fabulous Johnny Weir, & they have been making quite the fashion splash in Sochi, & I'm kind of obsessed with it!

They are hands down the best hosts at the Olympics & no one can contest that they are the best dressed ones as well.  Today quoted Johnny saying, "'that we’re trying to match and be cohesive on television,' Weir said. 'I think it’s TV 101 that you should look like your partners.'"  I couldn't agree more Johnny.  He also told Today that they packed:
  • 8 suitcases: "Three of mine are the size of Ford Focuses," Weir said. “And three of Tara’s are the size of Audi S4s.”
  • 22 pairs of shoes
  • 10 pounds of jewelry
  • 25 blazers
  • 4 fur coats (all Johnny’s)
  • 6 pairs of leather pants
  • 9 high-end purses
I mean they're are there for an entire month, I definitely would probably have packed the same amount.

They have been capturing all of their fabulousness on their personal Instagram accounts @taralipinski & @johnnygweir, & their joint account @taraandjohnny, which you have to check out.  They've been chronicling all of their chic fashion choices & their fun shenanigans, which are laugh out loud hysterical.  You have to check out their videos about picking out what to wear for the day!

Tara & Johnny are the perfect duo, that are making both my 6 & 22 year old selves very happy.  They are bringing a new, fabulous, freshness to figure skating commentary, one that I am loving.  Good move on putting these two together NBC, good move.

Have you been loving the Olympics?  What is your favorite event?
