    Thanks to Johnny Weir, we'll all have something to look forward to the day after the royal wedding: On April 30th, the fashion-forward Olympic figure skateris planning to debut his first fashion project -- a line of little black dresses for spring that will be available exclusively on eDressMe.com, WWD reports.

    According to WWD, Weir's update on the classic will be unveiled during the "Ice Dreams" skating show in Illinois and, no surprise, it involves some embellishments. Said Weir:

    “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.”

    Those "fanciful embellishments" include such whimsies as ostrich feathers, netting, sequins, tulle and taffeta, on dresses priced between $198-$298. The dresses will reportedly be available as soon as they're unveiled on the ice.
