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?

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.

Derek And Julianne Hough Make Cover Of People Magazine, New Interview

Be sure to pick up the new issue of People Magazine. Derek and Julianne Hough are featured in it and they also grace the front cover (has a pro from Dancing With The Stars ever made it to the cover before? So awesome!). In the new interview, the two share their story of their unusual upbringing from learning to dance, winning Dancing With The Stars, and more.

They battled homesickness, and young Julianne especially struggled with the pressure of trying to fit into the mature world of ballroom dance. Thanks to her spray tans and competition makeup, “When I look back, I think it’s so sad I have no pictures of me with a cute, bare, 10-year-old face,” she says.

But today, the two agree that their success is due to the sacrifices they made as kids and their years of hard work.

“People will say, ‘How could your parents let you go off to do that?’ ” Derek says. “I think it’s great that they saw an amazing opportunity. That is the reason we are here today.”
