Johnny Weir’s Super Bowl Outfit: Wears Glitter Football On Top Of His Head
Johnny is clearly stealing the show! The fashion enthusiast has outdone himself by wearing a glitter football on top of his head with what appears to be a matching blue glitter football pad sweater. He completed his look by wearing black lines — with rhinestones — under his eyes.
Tara also got in on the action by wearing a miniature football in her hair — but kept her outfit relatively simple by wearing a silver shimmery dress while hosting the Super Bowl pre-game coverage.
Johnny’s outfit definitely got people talking. Twitter seemed to be completely split between some people loving Johnny’s outfit and calling it the best part of game day coverage, while others were definitely not fans. See the best twitter reactions below:

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, the star dished about his fashion sense saying, “I decided to go more of Stanley Tucci’s character from The Hunger Games,” Johnny revealed to 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.”
