Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski are getting good at stealing the spotlight.

After their animated showing during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics with their coordinated outfits and colorful commentary, it's only fitting that the two took their act to the 140th Kentucky Derby.

Lipinski's outfit was classic and not too out of the ordinary, but Weir really came through with his hat—you know, the one with the Pegasus seemingly flying out from a gathering of white feathers.

Take another look:
