"It's ballerina meets film noir," says figure skater-slash-designer Johnny Weir of his collection of six black dresses, available exclusively on eDressMe.com this Saturday, April 30. He chose a limited color palette, he says, "because I wanted to show people that I’m not always outrageous and garish like they tend to think of me." Sticking to a ballet-inspired silhouette, Weir's favorite dress has a fitted, corset-style top and a layered, voluminous tulle skirt. "I love the look of a skirt that’s short in the front and longer and poofed out in the back," he says. "I love a bustle. It's great for the waistline."
