    Johnny Weir Rocks Attention-Grabbing Kentucky Derby Hat on "Today"
    Today
    Johnny Weir's pre-Derby hat turned heads.

    Johnny Weir grabbed attention Friday with his massive Kentucky Derby hat that Al Roker said resembled a “direct TV dish.”

    The former Olympian was discussing derby hat trends with his partner in crime, Tara Lipinski, and anchor Dylan Dreyer in a segment on “Today.” Lipinski sported a small, stylish fascinator headpiece, while Weir wore a large cap, a so-called “hatinator.”

    “I had to build up a lot of weave in this to actually keep this hatinator on,” Weir said. “It’s stunning and it’s that statement piece you look for when you are having that derby moment.”

    Weir and Lipinski will host NBC’s coverage of the derby this Saturday.

    You can see more photos of their hats below.
