    OK, watched a bit of the video. Does he design for men, or where the men just supposed to be eye candy to go along with the designs for women?

    Sigh. Hate to see him tarted up so. He is so adorable in his natural state! Well, glad he is having fun AND making money. He's probably having the time of his life, with all the attention, money and projects rolling in. Not too shabby!

    "Must" have come? For a product like Johnny's book, there is almost no chance at all that even if the phrase was suggested by someone else, it wouldn't have been put there without his or her camp's approval.

    Yes, nylynnr, those aspects of what motivates Johnny (and most people) are quite true and have been pointed out before to those who seem overly concerned for and/ or disgusted with Johnny.

    Thanks for the links, HisWeirness. Johnny "tarted up" and having fun making a living.

    As opposed to your own analysis of his psyche and motivations, which is obviously far more rigorous and reliable than anyone else's

But there are those exceptional exceptions ... such as Kate Moss, and apparently Johnny too, where height is trumped by other physical qualities ... and perhaps something ethereal that they seem to project.
    Yes, but Kate Moss is 5'7". Short for a model but not short for a woman. Johnny is short for a man, full-stop. He gets hired for modeling gigs not because of his modeling ability, but because he's Johnny Weir. He'll only be able to keep that up if he's famous.

    Yes, that's is what seems to be happening. Which is totally fine, but it's easy to confuse different facets of individuality.

    I hope that Johnny is happy doing this. That clip of him walking in the show is...WOW!

    USFS must invite Johnny to appear on the Red Carpet event preceding the premiere of RISE, next week. We want Johnny! We want Johnny!

    Yep. The fact that he responds shows that it does matter.

    Did you read the excerpts in the book thread? It's like that, only more of it. I read it because it's a skater book, but it's one of those books where I said, "Well, at least I didn't pay full price for it."

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    I would wear it if I was stranded on a Caribbean Island, although I would be more tan and probably leave the accessories in the treasure chest.

    I've read the excerpts on amazon, didn't sound too bad. How did you get a deal on it? Although I was about to pay full price to support the book industry as your post in the book thread inspired me.

    I guess it's about the show, the drama, the look and not at all intended for wear. Perhaps someone will like the material and design something that can be translated into actual clothes. But yeah, it's weird and I don't see the point of this particular "outfit". But then it's taken outside of the context of the show.

    There are several excerpts in the book thread, I think.

    But anyway, I got a Nookbook version that was on sale that week and I used a Christmas gift card.

    It's not a bad book and parts of it are quite entertaining, but....Johnny does not come across particularly well . Again, the book thread is pretty much right on.

    But Johnny's a skater, and I like to support skaters when I can. I don't have any hangups about helping him buy his condo . More power to him.

    True; could be part of some theme.

    But Johnny looks much better in the face of fashion photo.

    It's like edible undies, except it's a loin cloth and it's not made out of fruit roll-ups.

    Next you'll tell us that you'd NEVER wear edible undies.

    I'd wear that for costume parties. But more pressing issue is, why does Weir look like starved Dita Von Teese?

    What happened to Johnny's body? Legs still look athletic, but the rest not so much, even beginning to show a small paunch.
