How about this dress? Last night, Dancing With The Stars peta Murgatroyd attended “TrevorLIVE LA” honoring Jane Lynch and Toyota for the Trevor Project in Hollywood, California. The event was held at the Hollywood Palladium. You can view more fabulous takes of her and other celbs who attended the event at Zimbio Pictures. I love her black lacey dress. Gorgeous!
What do you think of these two looks? Last night, Dancing With The Stars pros Cheryl Burke and Peta Murgatroyd attended KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA. I think they look incredible and I love their killer boots! You can view more fun photos of them at Zimbio Pictures.
And speaking of Cheryl and Peta, if you’d like to see them perform in “Ballroom With The A Twist 2″ in January along with Tony Dovolani and Derek Hough, see this link.

The Powder Room at the NY Daily interviewed Karina Smirnoff about her makeup tips and she gave some great ones too to those interested. Karina also discusses how the makeup philosophy has changed on Dancing With The Stars….
PR: Any beauty blunders you wish you could forget?
KARINA: I think I must have been 8 or 9 years old, watching one of the girls two classes ahead of me do her bangs – and back in the day, they used to do bangs with lots of hairspray and you would take the curling iron and make this curve. I thought, ‘”That looks awesome!” So I put a cheap, really hot curling iron to my bangs … and they burnt off! It was old-school hairspray. Just burned them right off. It was very traumatic. I had a little halo around my forehead.
PR: What’s the makeup philosophy at the show?
KARINA: We used to be the queens of makeup, but now I think we’re trying to go for a more natural look. Which I totally support. I agree it’s show business, so we need a show look. But I would much prefer seeing us all in just everyday makeup. I think natural is prettier than excessive amounts of makeup.
PR: What are your go-to beauty products?
KARINA: Personally, I try to use less when I’m not on camera or dancing. The skin gets tired of makeup. I do like YSL foundation, and I love Stila – they have great foundation, I love their eye shadows and the lip glosses are awesome. I love Clé de Peau Beauté’s compact powder because it’s really pretty, and I love the way it feels and the coverage. And I always have mascara on me. I prefer Giorgio Armani’s Eyes to Kill in Steel Black. It’s a rich black, and creates the longest lashes. People ask me if they’re real – I try not to give that secret away.
More at The Powder Room.

DWTS Mark Ballas Discusses His Guiltiest Pleasure, What He Dreams Of, And More With The Huffington Post
First, the chat with Extra and Stuart Brazell, and now Mark Ballas answers a few questions from the Huffington Post in a new “#nofilter quick-fire question-and-answer series”. Below are a few questions on the last the time Mark cried, his guiltiest pleasure, and the silliest thing he’s lied about. Lots more at the link and thanks to Lori for the heads up!
When’s the last time you cried?
Two times actually. Once during “Les Mis” the movie. Like, sobbing! Sobbing, during “Les Mis.” And then when I went to see Celine Dion. [Laughs] I went to see Celine Dion in Vegas and it was ah-mazing. She started singing the “Beauty and the Beast” song and it was a wrap. Yeah, it was really incredible.
What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
I’m a horrible TV junkie. I finished “Breaking Bad,” I’m caught up on “Walking Dead,” I finished “Game of Thrones” and I started “Homeland” like two weeks ago and I just finished Season 1. I’m behind, I’m catching up.
What’s the silliest thing you’ve ever lied about?
When we were living in London, Derek [Hough] and I stole my mom’s car when he was 15 and I was 14. And in England you have to be 17 to drive, and we stole the car. And my mom wasn’t in town so we thought, “We are not getting busted.” But when she got back, she went to the local dance store to buy shoes and the guy who sells the shoes — they’re friends — and he was like, “I didn’t know your boys passed their driving test?” So that night she came home and she was like, “Did you steal the car?” And we were like, “No.” And then Julianne [Hough] did us in, she totally told her what we did. [Laughs]
Awwww, it’s so fun to see Stuart Brazell again. In the spreecast for Extra below, she interviews Mark Ballas. Fans asked some cool questions too. They ask him about his career, Dancing With The Stars Season 17, the new format, who he wished he could have danced with besides Christina and more. Check it out if interested. Also, if the chat doesn’t work below, see this link.
