Johnny Weir had a mint julep in his Kentucky Derby hat

Saturday May 2nd, 2015

NBC's Johnny Weir is known for his flamboyant fashion sense. For Saturday's Kentucky Derby coverage, Weir wore a rose-covered hat with a mint julep stuck in it. 

The Derby, also known as the Run for the Roses, is as synonymous with outlandish hats as with mint-garnished bourbon cocktails, so it's only fitting that Weir's Mohawk of roses has a mint julep stuck right in the middle. 

Weir's gold suit and floral hat were actually pretty understated, compared to what he's worn in the past. Who could forget his Super Bowl ensemble? We've come to expect nothing less from the broadcast duo who brought 10 pounds of jewelry to the Olympics. 

Here's a few more looks at his outfit:
