Johnny Weir's eccentric outfit makes a splash on FiFi's red carpet

Weir has it all: shorts and a train. And that's just one of today's fashion stories

Olympic skater and television personality Johnny Weir is known for his fey sense of fashion. His whimsical outfits are never boring. For instance, here's what he wore to the Fragrance Foundation's 43rd annual FiFi Awards gala on Wednesday: a generously cut rubber top by Malaysian designer Moto Guo and shorts by Mikio Sakabe — complete with an overskirt and train, as would befit a formal occasion. It kind of reminded me of a mullet haircut, with two different vibes going on. He carried a large tote and finished off the otherwise summer-white outfit with black wedge booties by Chanel. "I like to do things a little bit differently,” he told the Fashion Spot.

Among the big winners at the FiFis were Tom Ford, which won Fragrance of the Year in both men's and women's luxury categories for its scents Mandarino di Amalfi and Velvet Orchid. L'Oreal won in the Women's Prestige division for Giorgio Armani Si Eau de Parfum, and Dior won the Men's Prestige award for Dior Homme Eau for Men. In the Women’s Popular division, it was Taylor Swift Incredible Things by Elizabeth Arden, and in Men's Popular, the winner was Modern Banana Republic Man by Inter Parfums USA LLC. See the Fragrance Foundation's website for a complete list of winners.

Model and TV personality Tyra Banks posted a makeup-free selfie on Wednesday that received mostly positive feedback. On Thursday, she followed with a glam shot, and proclaimed, "This is me, too." She's just keeping it real, she said, because "we ALL know I don't walk around looking like the bare-faced photo I posted yesterday. Almost every day, I rock mascara, blush up my cheeks and throw concealer on those damn dark circles under my eyes." [Los Angeles Times]
