Erin’s blog is up over at People. She says that the pleated, flowy skirt on the dress reminded her of Baby’s dress at the end of the movie, where she’s waiting for Johnny. I’m not completely sure about the comparison, but I did love how the dress flowed. I loved the simplicity of her whole look.
And her hair…. GORGEOUS!
Erin’s style team hit this week out of the park, I think! What do you think?
Vogue: I agree, Lori! I tend to like lighter colors on her the most (especially white), but, this dress is stunning!
To be clear, by “ever changing” I (Lori) mean that Erin Andrews seems to be allowing her style team to develop a completely new look every week. More often than not, her look had a strong “Julianne” vibe to me, except this week. I love the red dress, it’s a great color for her!
Her blog is up at People, she and her team talks about the whole process to get her camera ready. I wish they’d talked more about the puppies they were playing with backstage, but I do understand. This is about Erin and her fashion.
I loved Erin Andrew’s look and dress this week, did you? She writes how she and the Dancing With The Stars crew put it all together at People Style.
For Erin, last night’s outfit was all about channeling the ice princess. “Today we were on auto pilot,” she tells PeopleStyle exclusively, “Ryan came in and knew what he was going to do with my hair, Lisa knew what she was going to do with my makeup, and I just sat back and trusted them. But everything changed as soon as I put on this gown.” As we all know a great dress can be an instant game changer, and as Erin put it, “It was a total ‘The cold doesn’t bother me anyway’ moment…FROZEN!!! I was twirling, spinning, and throwing my cape around. The gown was so gorgeous!!” And while it’s clearly stunning from the front, it only gets better as she turns around to reveal an elaborate sheer cape and open back, undeniably making this, “One of my favorite looks ever!!”
Her stylist Alyssa Greene agrees, adding that the dress by Steven Khalil was “magical.” “We were almost going to save it for the finale but we couldn’t wait,” she continued, “The light pink was so pretty on Erin’s skin and it fit her like a glove.” Greene finished off the look with shoes from Manolo Blahnik and jewelry by Sylvie Collection.
I was really hoping TMZ got it wrong – but now that some of the major news outlets are picking up the story, I guess I have to confront the fact that one of my idols is gone. One of only two artists in this world whose music has brought me to tears – several years ago, I remember standing at a stadium in Louisville, watching in awe as the “Purple One” himself belted out a heart-rending live version of “Purple Rain”…and I bawled my eyes out.
Prince was infamous for being very protective of his music copyrights, which meant that we were seldom treated to one of his songs being used on DWTS. But the 3 occasions that we were, boy – did it thrill me. To this day, Nicole’s season 10 cha-cha to “Kiss” is still my favorite cha-cha we’ve ever seen, and probably one of my top 10 favorite dances of all-time on DWTS. Let us relive it…
Prince had given special permission for Nicole (and only Nicole!) to use that song, and in the same week, he also gave approval for Erin to dance a paso to “You’ve Got the Look”:
And we were treated to a cha-cha to “Trust” from the Batman soundtrack in season 19:
Rest in peace, Prince. Enjoy driving that Little Red Corvette in the sky… 🙁
Didn’t Erin Andrews look incredible again last night on Dancing With The Stars? You can read how she and the crew put her look together at People Style Watch. They posted photos too.
“For [last night’s] look, we wanted to go very princess-y and whimsical in the spirit of Disney,” Greene tells PeopleStyle. “Erin looked like she was part of Tinker Bell’s fairy princess squad. I loved that she could twirl and feel like a princess in this gorgeous Paolo Sebastian gown. The whole look was very soft and pretty.”
But Andrews admits, the feminine number was far from her usual “edgy” ensembles. “This dress was very different for me,” she tells PeopleStyle. “I’ve never done a floral look. I usually try something with an edge, but as soon as I put on the dress, I wanted to figure out how we could make it work!”
And the host’s whimsical ensemble wouldn’t be complete without a soft, feminine beauty look. Enter Andrews’ glam squad — makeup artist Lisa Ashley and hairstylist Ryan Randall — who played up the princess theme with a pretty pink lip and an equally romantic flower-adorned updo.
“I’m more of a tomboy than a girly girl, but with a dress like this, a princess updo and glowing makeup it was fun to change it up,” Andrews admits to PeopleStyle. “My team kept saying, ‘You look so pretty!’ Such a fun change and a great excuse to get into character.”
Didn’t Erin Andrews look cute last night on Dancing With The Stars? And to think….at first she wasn’t sure about the dress she wore. More below from People.
Even though she was game to participate in the theme, Andrews had reservations about her Jonathan Simkhai dress. “I thought it would be a great dress for the ballroom but I was really worried it wasn’t ‘fancy’ enough,” she shares with PeopleStyle in her weekly blog. “But once Alyssa [Green, her stylist] paired it with the jewelry, shoes, hair and makeup, this look was fantastic. Perfect for Latin night. It was beautiful yet spicy.”
What made it so ideal was all in the sultry details: “The small cutout right above [the waist] gave it a sexy feel and I loved the slit; it was high enough to feel edgy, but I didn’t feel uncomfortable walking around in.”
Stylist Alyssa Greene “edged up” the look with an architectural Dior pump and swirling diamond Sylvie Collection jewels. “Erin looked like she could have been out there twirling alongside the best of them,” Greene says.

Below is Erin Andrews co-hosting Kelly & Michael today and she was great too. I thought she was so good on Dancing With The Stars Monday night too…fun and sensitive.

Thank goodness for Erin Andrews. A jury today awarded her with $55 million in a civil lawsuit over a secret recording and release of a video showing her naked during a hotel stay. You can read more from ABC below. Also below is a statement by Erin thanking the court, friends, family, and victims around the world for their help and support.
The jury has awarded Erin Andrews $55 million in her civil lawsuit over the secret recording and release of a video showing her naked during a hotel stay.
The sportscaster’s original suit asked for $75 million from the owner and operator of the Nashville, Tennessee, hotel where she was staying, and Michael David Barrett, the stalker who used a hacksaw to tamper with her room’s peephole and record the video in 2008.
The jurors took photos with Andrews after the amount was announced, and she signed autographs, according to reports from inside the courtroom.
The jury found Barrett to be 51 percent at fault and required him to pay out more than $28 million. West End Hotel Partners, which owns and operates that Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University, was found to be 49 percent at fault and asked to pay out more than $26 million.
Dancing With The Stars Erin Andrews picked who she thinks will win the Super Bowl tomorrow. Below is more from People.
If anyone can do it, it might be the Denver Broncos, says Andrews, who in a partnership with Levi’s, recently announced the brand will be expanding its NFL Collection this fall to include gear for all 32 teams.
“Their defense is unbelievable, obviously, and everything they were able to do over the season,” she says. “And you know Peyton (Manning, quarterback for the Broncos) is Peyton for a reason. So I’m just excited to watch the game. I hope it’s a close one and I hope it lives up to all the expectations.”
So who does Andrews expect to win?
“For my long-winded answer,” she tells PEOPLE, “I may say Carolina.”
