In not so surprising news, Olympic fashion plates Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski told Today that they brought a combined 10 pounds of jewelry and 22 pairs of shoes to Sochi.

Weir also told Today that he brought four different furs to the Olympics, and had planned on bringing more had the forecast not been so mild.

The pair conceded they may have overpacked, with Weir explaining "we’re in this position where we’re the new kids on the block and we have to prove ourselves. You can’t wear the same black suit every day so we have to mix it up."

The announcing duo have become a hit with audiences for their commentary, as well as their style, and even have a shared Instagram account throughout the games:  @taraandjohnny.
