Weir will perform an exhibition number to Lady GaGa's "Poker Face" in front of an impressive celebrity crowd. Invited guests include Christina Aguilera, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Vera Wang and Richie Rich of Heatherette, as well as numerous fashion journalists, publicists and stylists. Weir, a veteran of New York Fashion Week, previously walked the runway for designer Heatherette.
"I am thrilled and honored to be asked to take part in New York's premier Fashion Week event," Weir said. "It is especially exciting for me as I am very interested in fashion, as many people know. It's always a treat when skating and fashion are combined in one setting."
