The New York Times Magazine asked Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte to design outfits for 13 Olympic athletes, then got Ryan McGinley to shoot them. The story, out this weekend, includes figure skaters, snowboarders, and one ski jumper, but we're most excited about the participation of Johnny Weir, who is featured "in mid-axel sporting a full crochet knit jumpsuit." That's him at right. Click through for a bigger shot, but be warned: Crochet leaves very little to the imagination. [WWD]
