If you don’t watch the Kentucky Derby for the horse racing, then you should definitely tune in for the fashion. Specifically this man’s fashion. Because trust me, when someone shows up wearing a brooch powered by Twitter and a hat to match — it’s worth tuning in for. See the best Twitter reactions to Johnny Weir’s Kentucky Derby outfit because, of course, people have something to say about this over-the-top ensemble.
If they’re not commenting on his outfit, they’re definitely using #WatchMeNeighNeigh to make his horse brooch light up because I mean, why not? Something this fun and interactive has got to be taken advantage of, and all of Twitter seems to agree.
Weir kept his outfit simple, going with an all-white suit. But, boy, oh boy, did he have fun with the accessories. Both his hat and his brooch are completely outrageous, in keeping with his typical derby day style. Whether he’s rocking roses, feathers or redefining the idea of a “ponytail,” you can always count on Weir to bring the fun to the Kentucky Derby. See this year’s Kentucky Derby outfit along with the best reactions to it, and get ready to be watching him “neigh neigh” all day. It’s just too good to look away.
