Johnny Weir Dons Kentucky Derby “Mohawk” Hat

Johnny Weir's choice of flashy hats usually grabs as much attention as the Kentucky Derby favorite.

He calls this year's choice his "mohawk" hat: a garland of red roses with an ice-cold mint julep on top.


He also wore a shiny gold suit resembling pajamas, along with black and gold loafers, a gold Rolex and even a gilded microphone, for his NBC broadcasting job with sidekick and former fellow ice skater Tara Lipinski.

Weir grabbed attention Friday on "Today" with a massive pre-Kentucky Derby hat that Al Roker said resembled a DirecTV dish.

Last year, Weir made a splash with a tall white feathery hat with a white Pegasus horse bursting from the plume.
