GLAMMING IT UP: National figure skating champion and U.S. Olympian Johnny Weir is gliding into the fashion fray. He’s launching a Little Black Dress collection for spring exclusively on eDressMe.com. The dresses, which will be available April 30, are being unveiled in conjunction with the second annual “Ice Dreams” skating show in Bensenville, Ill., which offers young skaters a chance to perform alongside their Olympic heroes. Each dress from the capsule collection will be modeled during the skating extravaganza. Prices of the dresses range from $198 to $298, and in true Weir style, boast ostrich feathers, netting and sequin accents. Materials include antique matte satin, silk, crepe stretch jersey, tulle and silk taffeta.

“The level of design is complemented by my understanding of a woman’s body, and my knack to refine the classic Little Black Dress with fanciful embellishments like feathers and sparkles,” said Weir.
