Figure skater-turned-commentator Johnny Weir is garnering his own Olympic spotlight with a bright pink blazer.

Trail blazer: Weir struck a bright pink pose on Tuesday. 

Figure skater-turned-commentator Johnny Weir is making a resounding Olympic statement during his time in Russia.

A fashion statement. 

The openly gay Weir is attracting his own Sochi spotlight with not just his sharp figure skating NBC commentary with fellow ice skater Tara Lipinski, but also his fashion choices.

Particularly fierce was the outfit above, worn during the pairs' short program competition.

According to Weir, it's a vintage Chanel blazer with jewels by Joomi Lim, leathers courtesy of Gareth Pugh Studios, and Rick Owens wedges.

Today's outfit is just as sharp (if not as bright):

Wednesday's OOTD. 

It's a stylish statement from Weir's part in Sochi.
