Johnny Weir is a former U.S. figure skater, a bronze medalist and a three-time national champion.

And now, as a commentator for figure skating at the Sochi Olympics, he can add fierce fashionista to that list.

Weir's commentating outfits have caught the attention of viewers, who can't help but notice the flashy necklaces and pops of glamour the former skater sports on the daily.

Here Weir is in all-leather everything, from the jacket to the pants and the Rick Owens wedges.

This look is more about the hair, curled into perfect coifs on top of his head.

Let's not forget the instant hit, a hot pink vintage Chanel blazer, leather leggings and those Rick Owens wedges again.

Then this number, a fur coat, leather leggings and a gold statement necklace from Erickson Beamon.

And another fur coat (it is the Winter Games, after all), more leather leggings and Christian Louboutin shoes. Also, don't sleep on the braid.

"I decided to go more of Stanley Tucci's character from 'The Hunger Games,' " Weir told Philadelphia Magazine. "I'm trying to stay between the lines of Johnny on Skating With the Stars and the rest of the NBC men's family in Brooks Brothers."

Keep doing your thing, Johnny.

Your outfits put the Olympic curlers' pants to shame.
