Judge Julianne Hough’s DWTS Season 20 Week 2 Style Post, New Blog, And Cyber Bullying

This was originally meant to be simply a weekly post for Julianne’s style for week 2 of Dancing With The Stars, along with some info on her new blog, then things happened. So, we’ll start with the easy stuff, and go from there.

I thought Julianne looked GORGEOUS this week! I think everything came together perfectly– the right dress, the right hair, the right make up, the right shoes, the right accessories! But it’s more than that, she looks happy, and more and more for the last year or so, she glows! Even when I don’t agree with some of her fashion choices, she’s had this happy glow. She’s in a great relationship with a good man, and it definitely agrees with her. ANYWAY! Here’s People’s Style post.

And don’t forget, Julianne is the April 2015 cover girl for Allure Magazine, and they’ve got some stuff online. Some of this you may have seen from one of Vogue’s earlier posts, but you can go through her style evolution here, some gorgeous photos from her cover shoot here, video from her cover shoot here, and some of her beauty secrets here.

Don’t forget to go check out Julianne’s new website, she’s working on it herself, she’s not hired people to create it for her. And she’s doing a great job! Check it out, it’s simply called Jules. As all of you should know, Julianne has been working with Kind Campaign for some time now, because they’re a cause that’s very important to her.  And, she’s got posts dealing with the importance of kindness on her blog.

On Tuesday, she posted this, that deals with the cyber bullying that Charlotte endured. I’m glad that Julianne, and Tom, and Erin said something, because it is a rampant issue. Not just on DWTS, but everywhere. Julianne’s been a victim of it, but she’s never spoken up about cyber bullying, until it happened to Charlotte. And it was wrong, and I’m glad she said something on the show. I definitely DO NOT agree with the person on twitter that I saw who told Julianne that she was all wrong with her comment, because Charlotte “acts like a bimbo.  Reap what you sow.” No, Charlotte did NOT deserve to be treated the way. No one deserves to be treated like that, and making excuses just makes it even more wrong. You don’t tell a woman who’s been physically abused that she deserved it because of her clothing, and you don’t tell a woman who’s been mentally abused that she deserved it because of how you think she acts. Period.

Our friend Krystin Burtt has a discussion about DWTS and cyber bullying over on her new website for AfterBuzz, go check it out, read the comments, and then come back and share your thoughts.

I don’t think this is going to be an easy fix, and I don’t think this is something that DWTS will be able to solve on it’s own. But I’d love to hear your thoughts, and what you feel could be the beginning of a solution?

Dancing with the Stars Season 20, Week TWO – Let’s Discuss Tonight’s Show!! (Spoilers)

So, who will go home? Who will be in jeopardy? Will there be a real bottom two?? These questions and more, answered tonight on DWTS. :-)

More importantly, who will get the judges’ scorn and who will get pimped to high heaven?? Do we even need to ask these questions or is it a foregone conclusion? ;-)

Not a great dance from Chris, but not horrendous – thing I like about Chris is that he GOES for it. He really, really tries and he wants to do it.

At least I can handle the Tony and Suzanne wardrobe this week…vastly improved routine too, although I doubt any other celebs or pros will get away with that amount of fluff in the beginning and in the end.

I love Robert and Kym, that is all. :-)

LOL to Patti and Artem walking with Michael and Chris in Shades acting as body guards.

Aw, Charlotte, I love ya girl. And much better than last week. Amen to Julianne!

I liked Michael, but I liked his dance better last week.

“People are scared of us??” Well, Rumer, maybe you should be a bit scared. And humble. So, Len wants nmore recognizable Cha Cha but gives then an 8. This sounds familiar.

Vast improvement from Redfoo, but I don’t think I care for him at all. One point below Rumer?? Maybe he’s going home….

LOL…Mark is the perfect partner for Willow. And the 14 year old just did a pretty damn good AT.

Sharna is so beautiful. The hair/eye combo is amazing….and refreshing on this show.

I think Noah’s dance was also an improvement from last week!! But let’s not get carried away, Julianne.

Okay I’m crying. Wanna bet Nastia is next. They would put her after that.

Beautiful Rumba…beautiful. LOL Tom trying to skip CAI’s drama.

Who’s scared now, Rumer?? Watch your back for Willow and Nastia, hon.

Damn, Riker – well done. I’m impressed. Another contender.

OMG….I love Patti Labelle. The woman is COOL….

WhoooHOoooo Charlotte is safe!!

Chris and Witney are safe.

Redfoo is eliminated…it was NOT a real bottom two. Tryin’ to boost Suzanne’s votes a bit maybe….

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. :-)

Julianne Hough’s Style Blog For DWTS20 Week 1, Judging With Carrie Ann Inaba, Lip Sync Battle News, And More

What did you think of Julianne’s yellow dress last night on Dancing With The Stars? People has posted a new style blog for how she put her look all together including pictures.

This time Patrickson picked the “fun, feminine and bold” gown because “Julianne loved it the minute she put it on! the color is so tough to pull off but Jules just shone.” After figuring out how to keep the look from being “too princess-y,” she collaborated with Barnes and Capri for the beauty look. “We all kinda came together for this one,” she says. “The bright chartreuse of the dress brought in the fun pop of color on the lip and the gorgeous Henri Sillam drop earrings gave us some hair inspiration.”

Capri said the moment the dress was on, the hair was decided. “We originally were going to have her hair down, but as soon as she put the dress on to make sure it fit, we all agreed it looked best up!” she says. “We’ve been doing DWTS for a while now, and we always want to do something new and different. This time I curled her hair in a different texture that I never curled it before, and Julianne and I loved it. It might be our new favorite wave!”

Barnes also had a blast reuniting with Team Hough. “Starting a new season with Julianne is like celebrating the first day of spring after a cold winter. Our sunshine girl is back!” he says. Once he saw the “Cinderella fabulous” dress Patrickson picked out, he reached for Kevin Aucoin’s The Matte lip color in “Forever” for a bright, spring-y finish, and dusted her skin with three bronzers by the brand (The Celestial Bronzing Veil in “Tropical Nights,” The Sculpting Powder and Starlight The Celestial Powder) to sculpt her face. “when you wear a bright lip color paired with bronzed skin, don’t feel like you have to wear blush as if it’s a hard and fast rule,” he advises. “Look for balance and the finished look will feel more clean and effortless.”

Be watching Julianne’s official site if interested. She announced “something big is happening” on the opening page. I wonder what it is?

A TV Heads up: Don’t miss Julianne and Derek Hough On The Lip Sync Battle on April 2nd at 10 p.m. on Spike TV.

Also, Julianne and Carrie Ann were on The Meredith Show today. Below are a couple of clips thanks to Lori. Julianne says she’s got no idea where her Dancing With The Stars trophies are because she’s moved seven times since then. In the second video, Carrie Ann says that she would always get so nervous before every show, but, having Julianne on the judges panel relieves her nerves and she hasn’t thrown up since.

ETA: Thanks to Abby, here is more of their appearance…

Carrie Ann Inaba Blogs About The Premiere of Dancing With The Stars Season 20 And The “Most-Remembered”

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba has written her first blog for Dancing With The Stars Season 20 at Parade. Below are the couples who stood out the most to her and who she thinks will be the “most-remembered” for opening this season.

1. Rumer and Val Chmerkovskiy — Their foxtrot was uniquely passionate and intense. I loved the drama and her competitive drive. She didn’t just perform the steps beautifully, she performed them with a vengeance. As the other competitors came out on stage to get ready for their final marks, you could feel that they were all suddenly, re-thinking their approach.

2. Riker Lynch and Allison Hoker — Their jive was edgy and exciting. His musicality is incredible and he moves really well. It must be in the genes. (He is a cousin of Derek and Julianne Hough). But he’s got a cool skater style going on. It’s a different type of athleticism and way of moving. We haven’t had many on the show with his vibe. He’s precise but cool, appealing to the young girls, and his energy is contagious and effective. I’m looking forward to seeing him do a ballroom dance.

3. Patti LaBelle and Artem Chignintsev — There was something very special about her performance. Sometimes less is indeed more, and I think this dance was a perfect-pitched approach for the queen of soul. She really dazzled me with her presence and her poise. She was graceful and danced as if she was floating on air. I worry about the faster dances that will be coming up for her but she’s got the right attitude—“70 years young.” She is naturally gifted with beautiful musicality and an inherent grace.

4. Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess — Everyone remembers Amy Purdy, the inspirational double-leg amputee from season 18. Her amputations due to meningitis were so different than Noah, an Iraq war veteran who lost his left arm and leg serving our country. Without the ability to lead with the left hand or the ability to bend his left leg, Sharna faces big challenges in creating choreography that will excite us as judges while showcasing Noah’s strengths. Last night was an excellent example of just that. What stood out to me was his incredible balance and strength. His focus was mesmerizing. And you could feel his passion and determination. He has a special ability to be focused with power, not force. His power is quiet and grounded which draws you in. It will be fascinating to see what’s to come during his journey in the ballroom.

Everyone else showed a lot of promise but these four stood out to me. They are going to be the most-remembered dances of our season 20 opening night.

More at Parade.

My thoughts: To each his own, but, how could Derek and Nastia not be on her list? They were show stopping in my opinion. Oh well….
