New Interview With Julianne Hough On Judging Dancing With The Stars And More

Thanks to a heads up from Lori, below is Julianne Hough with The Morning Mashup. Julianne talks bout being a judge on Dancing With The Stars and how hard it can be sometimes. For instance, what the viewers sees at home, isn’t necessarily what the judges are seeing LIVE (Very true). She also talks about her dogs, singing, and more. So cute. Great interview.

Julianne Hough Style Watch for DWTS19 Week 5, Sister Marabeth Pictured Behind The Scenes

If you head to People, you can read how Julianne put her look together for Dancing With The Stars last night. I loved her dress, did you? Also, her sister Marabeth is seen with her backstage. Both so cute.

“We’ve been having fun, creating looks each week that are completely different from the last and so we were definitely in need of a more dramatic cut,” stylist Anita Patrickson tells PEOPLE of the “clean, sleek and fresh” style she chose. “Julianne’s bright blue eyes just lit up when she tried on the dress. We are both massive Pucci fans and so of course this dress was a slam dunk! The back is also fabulous. Business in the front, party in the back!”

Echoes Hough, “I love the sporty essence of this look. The strong lines and bright cobalt blue are all really dramatic elements that we felt would translate well on the show. Its also super sexy and fun from the back! I’ve worn Pucci a number of times to award shows and the cuts are always really beautiful, this dress is no exception!”

Julianne Hough’s Photo Diary Dancing With The Stars Season 19 Week 4

People posted Julianne Hough’s new Dancing With The Stars photo diary. I thought she looked stunning again last night. What did you think? Below are some details for how they put her look together.

“I’ve actually been in love with this Jenny Packham gown for a while now,” stylist Anita Patrickson tells PEOPLE. “I saw it on the runway in New York and have been dying to get my hands on it for Julianne. Chartreuse is one of those colors that really only a handful of people can carry off — Julianne, of course, is one of them!”

She and Hough both were in agreement on the bold green gown for the show. “Jules and I are usually on the same page when it comes to picking our favorite dresses at a fitting,” Patrickson says. “As soon as she put this on we were both swooning. It just flows so beautifully and so Julianne immediately started twirling around the fitting room — which in my mind is the sign of a great dress!”

“I am such a huge Jenny Packham fan. Her dresses always make me feel so beautiful!” Hough adds. “This dress is no exception. The bold color didn’t feel overwhelming at all; if anything I felt empowered and confident. The neckline is so elegant and the flow of the dress so graceful. I feel very spoiled that I get to wear such amazing pieces. We accessorized with one of my favorite jewelers, Neil Lane.”

DWTS Julianne Hough Photo Diary: “I love the vibe of the ’70s! There is a such a sexiness and ease to it all”

Did you like Julianne Hough’s look last night on Dancing With The Stars? I thought she looked so pretty again. She talked with People about it. Below she talks of how she loves the 70’s era (I do too). More at the link including pictures of Julianne getting ready for the show.

“I love the vibe of the ’70s! There is a such a sexiness and ease to it all,” Hough tells PEOPLE. “The music, the clothing and the hair and makeup of that decade has always really resonated with me. We found the beaded bodysuit portion of this outfit first and the minute we paired it with the high-waisted pants it suddenly became this retro, ’70s, fabulous thing and we just built the rest of the look around that core story. It really felt like the perfect look for week three!”

Hough’s stylist Anita Patrickson added that she picked up on the week’s “Movies” theme to pay homage to “Charlie’s Angels, Starsky and Hutch and the style icons of the ’70s like Ali MacGraw, Mia Farrow and Farah Fawcett. The ’70s is already a huge trend this fall and it was the perfect moment to introduce it (subtly!) into Julianne’s look.”

PureDWTS Season 19, Week 3 – Power Rankings

Well, I guess the euphoria of having my dream contestant on DWTS would finally wear off – and this was the week that it happened.  What a three-ring circus of nitpicking, wonky scoring, and overall chaos.  From what I saw from the judges – crack is whack, and so is meth, heroin, and bath salts, apparently.  Julianne wins the “twatwaffle of the night” award, for generally just being a bit of a cranky b*tch – so in other words, she was filling in for Len.  Hooray.

Sorry, but the wrong person went home – Randy may not have been the best dancer, but he was not nearly as bad as the score he got last week OR this week…but hey, the judges need their scores & critiques justified, so they had to screw him somehow.  Absolutely no reason that he should have been forced to go first TWO weeks in a row, basically making a mad dash from the opening  number to the quickchange; and to add insult to injury, this week he had to do it after being told he was in jeopardy.  Classy, Wade. I just might have to spoil a bunch of sh*t early to get back at you…

…as for Kevin, I actually think he turned out being a pretty decent judge.  I liked that he didn’t seem like he was out to really critique anyone, and tried to see the positive in everyone’s routines.  Also enjoyed his humor, and thought it was kinda cool how he seemed genuinely moved by Bethany & Derek’s dance.  He can come back anytime and enthusiastically yell out scores ;-)

1.) TIE: Bethany & Derek and Janel & Val – So the first two perfect 40’s of the season.  I feel one was deserved; the other? Meh. Felt like an awful lot of emphasis was placed on Janel & Val’s struggles with switching the routine, there was a lot of futzing around at the beginning of the routine, and then the score was almost given as a consolation prize for putting up with the crap.  Sure, Janel handled what she was given decently well – she should, given her background – but a 40? For wiping Val’s abs with a towel? Sorry, not buying it.  But hey, they seem bound & determined to make Vajanel happen, so I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised.  As for Bethany – I had been worried, after hearing that her ankle injury was still very much an issue; but thank the lord Derek was able to choreograph something that was true to Singin’ in the Rain while being feasible for her to execute.  God bless umbrella work that doesn’t go awry :-) And Bethany kept up, and for the first time, she really seemed 100% invested in the routine, which is what I’ve been wanting from her since the first week. I don’t see either going anywhere for awhile, but it should be interesting to see who fares better next week… Read more..
