Angels and Demons and Oscars

Beautiful Johnny 
on the Oscars red carpet. 
Theme: Angel. 

Johnny explained the idea behind their 
Oscar night fashion choices to Vanity Fair in this 
excellent interview conducted as he and Tara 
literally were getting ready.

40+ more pics below!!

Set those DVRs: Johnny is scheduled 
to be a guest on Seth Meyers this Friday night!

UPDATE!! Must-read new interview in the NY Times: 
It begins: “Last Friday, at a soundstage in Los Angeles, 
the only article of clothing Johnny Weir didn’t change 
five times was a pair of Versace underwear...”

Johnny and Tara 
Take Over the Oscars.

Part 1: Angels.

Johnny noted the details of his look on Instagram
“Custom vintage ‘pot luck’ leather suit.  Brooch 
by Le Vian, Ring by DeMarco, Shoes Louis Leeman.” 
E! Online named him one of their 
best-dressed men at the Oscars.

Detailing of the suit, shirt cuffs, and ring. 

The shoes! 
These garnered innumerable mentions 
in the media, including:

Best Oscar accessory by E! Online.

(typed this before even looking at their outfits, stand by it). 
Weir’s shoes are magnificent,” from The Gloss.

“BEST. EVER,” all the way from Australia via the Sydney Morning Herald
which declared them the best shoes of the night 
the minute he stepped on the carpet.

And, from my favorite article, USA Today / For the Win’s hilarious homage, 
Grading Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski’s Outfits 
on the Oscars Red Carpet“Weir’s shoes. Grade: A++.”

With the lovely Tara.

Johnny Instagrammed this shot 
with the caption: “I am so lucky to have a partner 
to share this beautiful journey with. 
I love you @taralipinski.”

And they’ve arrived in the Access Hollywood 
Oscars fashion platform, where they’ll be working 
with resident AH fashion guru, Louise Roe
(in green, her back to the camera).

A very srs bsns Johnny....

...an attitude which quickly flies out the window when 
he is confronted with baffling technology, as seen here 
 and in this video from Access Hollywood that is 
filled with gales of Johnny laughter at the very end
(though unfortunately they cut part of it off.)

UPDATE!! The full Access Hollywood segment, 
with all the Johnny technical difficulties and giggles 
beginning at about 3:46!
Must. Watch.
