Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough and Erin Andrews Fashion post for DWTS 21 Week 8

I’m tired of themes. When can we have a week of no themes? And we’re having 11 weeks this season, am I correct? So we’re back to a 4 person finale? Still hoping for a #RetroDWTS season. Or maybe not, they’ll figure out a way to mess with it and ruin it.

Moving on….

I liked Erin’s look this week, it was a little different for her, and she looked great in it. With her schedule over the weekend up to showtime, I can understand why her style team went the way they did. Her dress reminded me of that dress that was all over the internet a while ago, when some people saw it as white and gold, and others saw it as blue and black. Erin’s dress was definitely blue and black, but at times, it seemed to look completely black, and once I asked myself when she changed, before realizing that it was the lighting! Her fashion blog can be found over on People.

I also really liked Julianne’s look this week! They’ve been picking such great colors for her, I wish it would be something that she would take away from the ballroom. I’d LOVE to see Julianne in these vivid colors on red carpets or events outside of DWTS. Instead, it seems she has such great styles and colors on the show, but chooses blacks, whites and other neutrals and more daring styles… with an occasional color snuck in by her stylist. But THIS color was perfect! I’m just not sure about the shoes, but they did look comfortable! I’ll ask Vogue, would Erins’s shoes, in silver, have been a better match with Julianne’s dress? Julianne’s blog can be found over on InStyle.

And Carrie Ann’s blog is over at Parade, and she seems to have LIKED the Dance Off, and thought it successful and exciting. My thoughts on the Dance Off can be summed up as, “WHAAAAAAAA???????????” You will need to go the link and read the whole thing, I thought it was a good one. Now that we’re down to 6 couples, she spends time talking about each of them. And she says this, which I LOVED: Read more..

The Carrie Ann Inaba and Julianne Hough DWTS Season 20 Week 3 Blog Wrap Up

Below is Lori with Carrie Ann Inaba and Julianne Hough’s new blogs!! She is life saver and helping me with Blogs on Media Tuesday and I’m liking the way she’s combining them! What do you think? And Lori, I loved Julianne’s lip stick too! THANKS for all of your help!! ~ Vogue

I’m trying something new, and putting both of our female judges in one place. Let me know if you like it this way, or would prefer to have them separate.

Carrie Ann’s weekly blog post is up at Parade, and it was obvious to me that she reads the comments that people have about her judging.

On a personal note, last night was challenging for me personally. It is never easy to give constructive criticism to people you look up to and respect. However, that is what we are there to do, it is our job to judge and I believe it is my job to help each contestant to be their personal best. I offer advice that I hope will help them have a better chance at winning in the long run. After being a judge on the show for every single episode for 20 seasons, I know what the audience likes to see, and I know what we as judges like to see. I may have upset a few people, which I never want to do, but it comes with the territory of being a judge.

Last night, I enjoyed Suzanne Somers and Tony Dovolani’s samba. It was a delight to watch and was sheer entertainment. They could have gone straight to Vegas and sold out! But after three weeks of very colorful, light and almost campy (in a good way) routines, I would like to see more depth to her performance. Suzanne is an icon. She is a very strong woman. She’s in great shape and she looks terrific, but I feel there’s more to her. I’d like to see her do something that expresses her passion, her grace and elegance and shows us a new dimension. I didn’t deduct points because she hasn’t shown us that yet, but I was offering advice for the future. I upset Tony — which if you have read any of my blog posts or know me at all, you would know is NOT my intention. I have nothing but respect for these incredible professionals on our show. No one works harder on television than our pros, working as choreographers, therapists, friends, trainers and guides throughout this journey for their celebrity partners, and I have nothing but respect for their passion, dedication and excellence. But I worry that if Suzanne keeps doing light performances, she will get lost in the crowd. I’d like to see a bit of drama in her performance, a bit of passion, and a bit more depth. So, I’m looking forward to next week to see what they put together for us. And remember, I’m rooting for everyone out there to do his or her best!


I like parts of this, and do agree, but other parts was Carrie Ann definitely doing some CYA Fluff. Check out the link above to read the whole blog!

And Julianne has her weekly blog is up on People, I LOVE the color of her lipstick!

Here's Carrie Ann, Julianne and Bruno. Where's Len?

Julianne Hough Will Return to Dancing with the Stars in Early 2010

Maxims 10th Annual Hot 100 Celebration - Red Carpet

I just found this short little story on People that talks about Julianne Hough not leaving Dancing with the Stars for good. Here’s the quote from the article where Julianne Hough talks:

In an exclusive statement to PEOPLE, Hough said: “I am appreciative to be taking this coming season of Dancing with the Stars off to focus on my other career paths like touring in support of my album and recording my next one. I look forward to returning to DWTS in early 2010.”

Dancing with the Stars executive producer, Conrad Green, is also quoted in the article talking about how they encourage the dancers to take a break. Check out Julianne Hough’s list of Tour dates and you can see she’s going to be busy without Dancing with the Stars.

Glad to know Julianne Hough will be back on Dancing with the Stars.
