What did you think of Julianne Hough’s dress last night on Dancing With The Stars? I loved it. You can read how Julianne and her glam squad put her look all together at People. Here is just a little take. You know where to go for more.
“We loved this Alberta Ferreti dress and have been waiting for the perfect moment to wear it; the Halloween theme meant that we needed something a little richer and I didn’t want to go down the obvious black route,” Hough tells PEOPLE. “[Stylist] Anita [Patrickson] and I were inspired the fabulous Poison Ivy character but we had to rein it in a little so as not to get too literal. The leaves Riawna [Capri, her hairstylist] added to my hair were minimal enough to feel clean, chic and fashion-y, but outside the box enough to add a little character to my look.”
Says Patrickson of pulling together Hough’s Halloween look, “The biggest challenge was keeping her look fashion forward and not too costume-y. It all came together last minute, actually, with Julianne’s genius suggestion of adding something cool into her hair. Within 5 minutes we had dragged out my secret box of tricks full of flowers and leaves and ‘Poison Ivy ` la Hough’ was born. The result was a super sexy, very elegant and glamorous ensemble.”

If you head to People, you can read about how Julianne Hough and her style team put her look together for Dancing With The Stars last night. You can also see some back stage photos. I thought she looked amazing as always last night. What did you think?
“We wanted something strong and clean with a little edge,” Hough tells PEOPLE. “Kaufman Franco is one of my favorite designers — the sexy simplicity that surrounds each dress is so dramatic and I’ve had so many amazing red carpet moments with them. We loved the cutouts that were subtle but a little rock ‘n’roll. I felt bold, sexy and elegant.”
The coolest part, though? The out-there beetle-bedecked handpiece she sported [below]. “[I loved] the amazing hand piece by the ridiculously talented jewelry designer Daniella Villegas,” she says. “Quite simply, she’s an artist. Sitting on the judges; panel I use my hands a lot and so it’s a really fun, incredibly unique piece of jewelry that’s eye catching and perfect for TV!”
Stylist Anita Patrickson says of the memorable jewelry choice: “We knew we we wanted something simple yet striking for the accessories and we were undecided until I sent Dani a picture of Julianne’s dress the morning of the show. Within 5 minutes she came back with this idea. The hand cuff was a surprise and she only saw it an hour before she had to be on set. I hadn’t wanted to get her hopes up in case were couldn’t get it in time. When she saw it and her face lit up, it made all the stress completely worth it!”
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 was on Good Morning America today. She talked about judging Dancing With The Stars. She talks of how Alfonso Ribeiro and the girls are the most consistent this season. She also gives props to Antonio Sabato Jr, for being the “most improved”, but, they’ve all progressed. Julianne also talked about Derek Hough and his GLSEN Inspiration Award which he’s receiving Friday night. Lots more below and thanks to @idolxfactor1 for being so speedy.

“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!”

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.”
