Johnny Weir’s Kentucky Derby hat wins everything
Johnny Weir’s Pegasus-themed hat he wore to the Kentucky Derby practically shut down the Internet on Saturday.
Weir, who was there as a fashion correspondent for NBC along with skater Tara Lipinksi, described his hat as “clean, pure, fun, feathers, and that’s what the Derby’s about, fashion-wise.”Lipinski’s favorite aspect of the Kerin Rose Gold-designed hat? “The golden hoof,” she noted. “It is sparkling.”
Weir is currently going through a bitter divorce with his husband of two years, Victor Voronov, a Georgetown Law grad. The divorce drama has apparently caused the Olympian to drop out of the upcoming season of “Celebrity Apprentice.” In the ongoing divorce hearings, Voronov has claimed that Weir is worth $10 million (Weir has refuted that). Nonetheless, the judge recently awarded Voronov a $1,000-a-month allowance.
