Tara Lipinski, Braids

Sure, everyone may be paying attention to the athletes at the Winter Olympics, but Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir's fashion-forward looks were also the talk of the town.

And while the ice skaters dazzled in bright colors, lavish jewels and designer brands, there were a few recurring looks that caught our eye.

Case in point: Tara's fabulously messy fishtail braid. Not only did she rock the adorable hairdo once, she took the ultimate fashion risk and sported the style three times!

But it's not all about her hair, of course.

The two shared with Today that they brought several massive suitcases ("Three of mine are the size of Ford Focuses and three of Tara's are the size of Audi S4s," said Weir) which include 22 pairs of shoes, 10 pounds of jewelry, 25 blazers, four of Weir's fur coats, six pairs of leather pants and nine designer purses.

Tara added, "We're (in Russia) for almost a month and we're on air almost every day, so we had to put together outfits ahead of time so we weren't just bringing our whole closet."

Now that's some serious fashion foresight.
