All who glittered at the Sochi Olympics were not gold medalists. There was also Johnny Weir.

The former U.S. figure skater emerged as an unlikely breakout star of the 2014 Winter Games thanks to his insightful commentary and his inspired fashion choices. The 29-year-old two-time Olympian provided analysis alongside Tara Lipinksi and Terry Gannon during live broadcasts of the figure skating events on NBC Sports Network. While his ability to make plain the intricacies of the skaters' performances and his easy rapport with his colleagues would have earned him high marks from the audience had his work only been heard on the radio, Weir's eye-catching outfits became a highlight of each television broadcast from the Bolshoy Ice Dome.

Against the backdrop of Vladimir Putin's intolerant Russia, the kaleidoscopic wardrobe choices and dazzling accessories of the openly gay Weir felt even bolder in the broadcast booth then they ever did when he was an active competitor. To help his fans keep up with all the pieces in his collection, Weir shared daily photographs of his looks on Instagram. Here are the photographs of every outfit shared by Weir from the opening ceremony through the end of competition.
