The latest is that the two are headed for the Kentucky Derby. They are to talk and engage in banter about the style and fashion sense on the occasion. The Kentucky Derby is basically all about the culture of the South. It is not just a sports extravaganza.

Weir and Lipinski will work as fashion experts for the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 3 and the Kentucky Oaks on Friday, May 2," reported Deadline.

Three-time U.S. figure skating champion Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinsky will take part in their usual acid wit and badinage. Lipinski has gone on to say that she and her male cohort liked to talk about fashion a lot. And that she loved fashion as a young person and so did he.

Lipinski said that she and her partner sort of surprised themselves with their lines which were made up on the spot. Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski have knowledge of the world of horses and horse racing, but they are to comment on the clothes and hats instead of the winning numbers in the Kentucky Derby. 

“We’ve always loved loud fashion and sort of bonded over it,” Lipinski told Yahoo! Sports. “The whole Olympics experience was a bit of a surprise. We came in and were focused on doing a good job as rookies. But we’re young and we like to have fun. The fashion was specifically for us every day and it was like,’Oh, people are watching. This is fun.’”

Besides, in actuality they are happy in that particular role. Weir has in fact said that he is more of a colorful guy who goes for the aesthetic instead of being a pure sports personality. It is NBC which has taken the two on board for the coverage of the 2014 Kentucky Derby. It wants them to do a good job. They were the “It” pair of the Sochi Olympics after all. 

“Johnny and Tara have an infectious energy that will bring a fun and fresh perspective to our Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks telecasts,” said Rob Hyland, Coordinating Producer for NBC Sports Group.

As top figure skaters in their own right, the two have experience of art and the aesthetic spirit. three-time U.S. figure skating championThey will portray the sense of stylish sartorial choices on the NBC show when it airs soon. Furthermore, their frank and youthful not to mention caustic commentary will make waves and bring in more audience members to view the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks.
