Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff Covers Rockstar Magazine Issue #1 2012

Karina Smirnoff would be just as successful at modeling as she is at dancing! Above is the Dancing With The Stars Season 13 Champ on the cover of Canada’s first issue of “Rockstar Magazine”. Rockstar Weekly is reporting that there is a “dual-cover with both front and back images.” Karina in pictured on the front (seen above) while the back features Canadian singer/songwriter Sam Roberts. The 44-page debut issue hits digital devices via MagCloud today, as well as on a collectible Mini-CD. Below is more about the shots of Karina and what she says about it and Dancing With The Stars….

Smirnoff’s stunning shots were photographed by renown fashion and celebrity photographer Volker Fleck, with hair by Etienne Ortega, makeup from Rokael Lizama and wardrobe supplied by Steven Galindo. In the story she reveals that Dancing With The Stars was so stressful on her body this year that she sometimes found it necessary to get cortisone shots to keep going on with the show.

“I tried to be careful with my muscles and joints, but this season was really strenuous on the body,” she told RockStar. “In the end, though, the pros most definitely outweigh the cons, and participating in Dancing with the Stars was all worth it”.
