A Glitteringly Hair-rific Gala

Johnny and his hair on the red carpet 
at Figure Skating in Harlem's annual 
Skating With the Stars charity gala. 

So Johnny was among the stars at Figure Skating in Harlem's Skating With the Stars Gala last night, although clearly there is a case to be made that his hair was the real star in the selected picspam that follows...

But first, a congratulatory round of applause for Johnny's fanbase, who wielded their terrifying and legendary power once again to pounce on the Chopped All-Stars fan voting announced last Friday and catapult Johnny to first place by Monday morning even though his episode doesn't actually air for another three weeks. Cuz we're just that awesome.

Yes! We rock! And likely these numbers will be 
outdated by the time you read this. 
Please continue voting 
up to 10x/day from every available 
device / browser here. Go Johnny!!
And please be sure to tune in Sunday, April 28, 
at 9 pm EDT to see Johnny in Chopped All-Stars 
on Food Network!

And now, onto our story of Weaves On Ice....

...which begins with this tweet early yesterday....

...prompting this response from the 
Zen Hair Master himself, Beauty Bear Eric Alt. 
Although sadly this did not turn out to be 
the weave o' the day, which would have made for 
a priceless pic of Johnny with, say, 
Scott Hamilton and Evan Lysacek...

...but it's OK because this look is fabulous.

notes that he is the "All-Time Leading Scorer

Which is pretty awesome.

(Huuuuuge full-size here.)

Love this pose, which really shows off his ensemble. 
Johnny tweeted that the tail shirt he's wearing is 
a fave by Australia's @Limedrop_label.

With the boots and the hair, 
he's like seven feet tall.

With fellow Olympian Sarah Hughes.

With Rebecca Budig, winner of ABC's 
Skating With the Stars in 2010, 
in which Johnny starred as head judge.

With NBC's Harry Smith and Andrea Joyce, 
and Olympic fencer Tim Morehouse
Andrea was honored by FSH for her work 
as an NBC Sports broadcaster.

With FSH students.

And one more from the carpet.

Johnny looks very "Breakfast at Tiffany's" for the Figure Skating in Harlem event. Hats off to Eric Alt who has set his altimeter on high! Three-story Bump-It?

Hope everyone had the greatest fun that night.
