Tara Lipinski & Johnny Weir Show Us What Olympians Wear To Work

Fashion Week might be in February, but for anyone who considers sequins and tulle to be the key to happiness, the figure-skating events happening during next month’s Winter Olympics probably trump all. The Donatella and Karl of Sochi are, of course, Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir, two former Olympians who really made the ice rink their personal runways. As official commentators and analysts for NBC this year, the BFF duo needed to swap their spandex and rhinestones for something that paired a little bit better with headsets and news desks — and that’s where we came in. Refinery29 editors Connie Wang and Kelly Bourdet walked Lipinski and Weir through a few workwear style tips that’d make ‘em shine on camera and then got a few lessons on what to wear from the other side of the mic as well. Yes, folks, a sparkle crotch was involved. Press play to see us all going for the gold.

Catching Up With Tara Lipinski: The Olympian Tells Us If She Still Wears A Lot of Sequins, Where Her Gold Medal is Now and the Song She Couldn’t Wait to Skate To! (@Tara_Lipinski)

It’s not every day you get to see an Olympic gold metal winner lace up their skates and hit the ice right in front of your eyes, but that’s exactly what we got to experience. We caught up with Tara Lipinski who took the gold in the 1998 Winter Olympic Games in Nagano, Japan for women’s ice skating and trust us, you’ll want to be BFFs with her just as much now as you did when watching her on TV back then.

We hit the Chelsea Piers Sky Rink in New York City to chat with Tara about what she’s been up to, including her involvement in next month’s Sochi Olympics! Check out the video above to hear Tara talk about some of her old ice skating getups (including those hair accessories and all those sequins), if she’s been back to Japan since her big win and the fellow Olympians she keeps in touch with.

Tara also revealed how much she gets back on the ice and the song last year that she couldn’t lace up her skates quick enough to skate to. She also told us where her gold medal currently is and how you might be able to see it!
