What did you think of Julianne Hough’s look last night on Dancing With The Stars? I thought it was her best dress yet. You can read how she put her look together at People in her new Style Blog. The link has a stunning shot of her too.
We went back and forth with what direction to take this black dress,” Hough shares. “On one hand, it’s very classic and Audrey Hepburn-feeling, but on the other hand it’s edgy, daring and strong. So we did the logical thing: We did a little of both and came up with the ‘Naughty Audrey!’”
To achieve the look, says stylist Anita Patrickson, they had to incorporate Hough’s desire to go classic with her own more “grungy” vision for the dress, but the DSquared2 dress itself (which she wore with House of Lavande jewels and Casadei heels) was never in question: “Julianne loved it and so did I. We loved the double straps and structured corset of the top part of the dress and then the juxtaposition of the floaty sheer skirt.”
Once they agreed on the vision, Patrickson said, it was all about bringing in a few fun twists: “It’s as simple as the choices we made. Opting for a simple conservative pearl earring that is covered in gold spikes and backed with a studded ear cuff. The simple classic black dress with the daring sheer skirt and keyhole cut in the bodice. Sometimes the fun comes in the subtle details!”
