The Sochi Olympics have undoubtedly been an explosive force for news, athletically and, more so, politically. But as they come to a close this Sunday, it will be of the utmost importance to remember one of the true standout stories: Johnny Weir's fashion choices.

A brilliant plan, designed so that he'd emerge the winner, no matter what. 

To commemorate the close of this blazer and skinny-pants extravaganza, we've compiled the Instagram shots our figure-skating fave so graciously posted throughout the games via his personal account.
