NYFWe ♥ These Pics

living legend that he is.

All righty then. 

In contrast to our previous forlorn, Dickensian state, shivering cold and destitute with nary a twitpic to keep us warm, today we have such an embarrassment of NYFW riches that it's taken me hours to sift through it all, and just as I'm sure I've finally decided on what my favorites are, another avalanche of photos hits from Getty and Billy Farrell and Newscom and everywhere and then I have to start all over and so since I really, really have to DECIDE NOW AND WALK AWAY, here you go: My best photo picks as of right this second. Which will change if I don't just make my self STOP LOOKING AND POST THIS THING ALREADY...

Our photopalooza began innocuously enough 
with this pic tweeted by Spencer Cain, 
writer for StyleCaster: 
"@JohnnyGWeir and @vitya_zvesda 
getting ready for a day of shows!" 
Love the Cheb peeking around at the far left, 
although I didn't even notice it until 
@dapperderp pointed it out to me like 10 hours later...

First stop: Chris Benz! 
Johnny told the Fug Girls, who love him to pieces 
and described his look as a "beacon of kooky color," 
the story behind his ensemble: 
" 'Chris picked it all out. I just went to the studio 
and grabbed everything except for the shoes—
I can’t walk in the heels,' Weir said. 
What? Scandale
'No, don’t worry, I can totally walk in heels. 
I just can’t walk in Chris’s heels. 
They’re crazy high,' he explained."

More Johnny and Chris, 

So pretty.
Love his hair.

Side note: As always, Chris' show was a favorite of many attendees--although apparently no one could agree on exactly what yesteryear vibe he was channeling. Tweeters announced authoritatively that his presentation evoked the '20s ... the '40s ... the '50s ... the '60s ... Um. Those are four very distinct style eras, fashion people. Even I know that, couture-challenged though I am. One reviewer decided to sidestep specificity completely and just call it "vaguely retro." Personally, looking at the models' crazy-thick bouffant hair and the column dresses--all of which I love, BTW! And the colors! So much amazing color!--Imma go with '60s. And not just because I'm currently obsessed with Mad Men. These models definitely echo the prom looks from those years of my older cousins, whom I worshiped...

And then he was off to WALTER and to Alice + Olivia, 
in an entirely different ensemble.
Which out-fierced everyone everywhere.

(Thanks @dapperderp for "out-fierced"!)

Johnny with one of the Magnum ice cream bars 
given out at the Alice + Olivia presentation. 
He is definitely looking near 
quad-quad-quad-quad-quad weight 
in these photos, so this may be as close 
to actually eating an ice cream bar as he came....

Happy Valentine's Day 
to Johnny and Victor!

OK, we all remember the Shakespearean tragedy that was last Valentine's Day, yes? The dark room? The brandy? The (*shudder*) Care Bears trilogy? What a difference a year makes--and the love of a good man. And how happy are we for him this Valentine's Day? So, so happy.

Johnny shows off his ring to the 
red carpet photographers at Alice + Olivia...

...and to Spencer Cain, who tweeted this photo...

...and tops it off with a kiss for Victor.  
Happy Valentine's Day!

Nominate Johnny Weir for a social media award in the Shorty Awards!

Hey, Johnny's been nominated for a Shorty Award!! You can join in on the nominating process by clicking here and tweeting your vote for Johnny. Most fans are voting for him in the "Athlete" category. 

Note: The Shorty Awards have very specific rules, which essentially boil down to this:

(1) You can only nominate him ONCE from each Twitter account that you have. Additional votes from the same account will NOT be counted. So it's one of those deals where we need a LOT of different people to vote, rather than a few people voting a lot.

(2) Your nominating tweet MUST include a reason (for example: "I nominate @JohnnyGWeir for a Shorty Award in #athlete because he inspires his fans to believe in themselves"--thanks @PatinaGlace!).

(3) You must NOT copy someone else's reason in your vote. 

All righty then.

The nominating period ends February 17--please vote vote vote!! For more info, click here.

Thank you, Binks for assembling this panorama of loveliness! I just ADORE Johnny's ensembles profiled here....the colors, prints, glitz (a nice, red lip of course) and those curls light him up like a champagne bubble! And just when you think he can't shine brighter, Victor's smile sends him into the stratosphere...They are beautiful.

Happy Valentine's Day, Binky!
I ♥ you!

...ADM!(ay dios mio!)...stunning at both events - love that there are bold colors and prints involved and a sparkle and fur combo...but the real star here is THE HAIR...SCRUMP-tious...can't get enough of those luscious locks! (this has always been my fave on him)...the streak suits him well too - reminds me of Tongolele (a famous icon from Mexico's "golden age of cinema")...Johnny, if you are reading this, PLEASE, more of the curly-do!...wishing Johnny & Victor a lovely Valentine's Day...
