Dancing with the Stars’ Karina Smirnoff on Last Night’s Costume: “I Wanted to Make it Simple and Bright!”


March 25, 2014 @ 3:28 pm

When it came time to design this week’s costume, Dancing with the Stars‘ Karina Smirnoff took a straightforward approach. “I wanted to make it simple and bright!” the dancer exclusively tells InStyle.com. Smirnoff and partner Sean Avery performed a Salsa routine; the genre inspired Smirnoff. “I added short yellow ruffles and rhinestones to my dress to support the Cuban theme,” she says, which also accentuated the hip movements.

Karina Smirnoff and Sean Avery earned a 21/30 from the judges, which unfortunately did not earn them a spot on next week’s lineup. They, along with Henry Byalikov and Diana Nyad, were eliminated last night.

Tune in next Monday night at 8/7c on ABC for the live results show. And for exclusive details on Karina Smirnoff’s premiere costume, click here.

Kristen Wiig On Her New Auburn Tresses: “I’ve Always Wanted to Go Red!”

Last week, we did a double take when Kristen Wiig stepped out with pretty new auburn locks, and at a screening of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty last night at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, hosted by The Cinema Society & Brooks Brothers, she shared the inspiration behind her sassy new hue. “I’ve always wanted to go red and I’ve never done it before,” she told InStyle.com. “It was just sort of [one of those things] where I’m not working right now and it was sort of like, ‘Okay yeah, I’ll just go for it.’” So does being a redhead make her feel like a new person? “Yeah!” she said with a straight face, then in the typical comedic Wiig style that we love, started laughing. “Well, no. Not really.”

In the Ben Stiller-directed 21st Century comic epic, about a man named Walter Mitty (Stiller) who escapes his everyday life by stepping inside his own over-active imagination, Wiig plays the co-worker and love interest of Mitty.

Catch a glimpse of Wiig in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty when it hits theaters on Christmas Day. As for her amazing coif, we can’t wait to see what kind of styles she will rock during the upcoming awards season.
