Dancing With The Stars Carrie Ann Inaba Interviews Hamilton’s Leslie Odom Jr. – Video, Photo

Yesterday, Carrie Ann Inaba was a guest co-host on Access Hollywood. If you go to this link, you can hear her and Kit Hoover interviewing Leslie Odom Jr. On ‘Hamilton’ and his new Christmas album (which sounds beautiful). Hmmmm….he’d be a great contestant for Dancing With The Stars.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.

PureDWTS Season 23 Fashion: How great did Erin Andrews, Julianne Hough and Carrie Ann Inaba look on Week 1?

WOW! What a week! Definitely eventful. Memorable. And very scary! Miss Vogue has written about what Carrie Ann says about it here on our site, and a great follow up, where ABC talks to the protesters when they were released from jail here on our site. We’ll focus on the fashions here today.

Carrie Ann’s blog is no longer at Parade magazine, she’s moved to SheKnows. Besides the protest incident, she talks about her dress on Monday, as well as her Creative Arts Emmy dress, and gives us a preview of the dress she’ll wear to the Emmy’s on Sunday. Her stylist is Jen Rade, and I think she did a great job in finding these dresses! I loved the pink in her dress on the show, the cut of the dress suited her, and the dress made the turquois in the jewelry pop!

Erin’s got her blog still on People, and I’ve not been able to find something from Julianne this season. If she’s got one and I missed, please mention where in comments, so we can add it in here. Erin’s changed stylists this season, she and Julianne both have Anita Patrickson’s team styling them, so she’s pretty busy on Show days! I loved Erin’s sparkle, and the dress! Wow! and how about Julianne’s hair with the laurel crown and roses in her hair? And that dress!

I wish we at home could see the judges as they’re coming in, because both Julianne and Carrie Ann had gorgeous dresses, but we can only see the top, since they’re sitting down behind a desk!

I can’t pick a favorite this week, all three of these women I think started the season with a BANG!

Let’s hear your thoughts about this week’s fashion. Which was your favorite?

Dancing With The Stars Carrie Ann Inaba And Pet Rescue Story Featured In People Magazine

Be sure to pick up this week’s issue of People Magazine. Dancing With The Stars Carrie Ann Inaba is featured in it with a story on her and her pet rescues. Cute teaser below.

ETA: People now has part of the special feature published online. You can view it in full and see a really sweet photo here. Carrie Ann’s smile says it all!

Carrie Ann Inaba had already rescued her 10-year-old chow chow/Chihuahua/pug mix, Peanut, when she was introduced to Lola and Buddy, now both 2 and half years old.

“One of the organizations I work with sent me a picture of these two dogs that needed to be adopted out, but they were going to separate them,” the Dancing With the Stars judge, 48, tells PEOPLE. “I looked at them and I was like, ‘They only have each other in this world.’ “

Inaba (who is wearing a T-shirt from Dirtee Hollywood’s The Animal Project collection) was planning on fostering them until she could find a home that would take both pups.

“But as soon as I fostered them, I failed at the foster, and I now have three dogs!” she says.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)
