Johnny Weir, figure skater, reality TV star and clothing designer, can now add “model” to his list of professions.
Weir, who’s taking a year off from skating to focus on building his brand, has just become the new face of MAC’s winter “Glitter and Ice” collection. The NY Post reports that Weir shot the campaign in Miami this month. MAC’s previous male brand ambassadors include gay icons like Elton John and RuPaul.
In an interview with Howard Stern, the openly gay figure skater noted that all the money he makes goes back into figure skating. Weir said, “Everything I make goes back into my art…into helping me achieve things that I want to achieve.”
