Chaz Bono & Lacey Schwimmer: Sizzle
Lacey shows her free spirit and sparkles next to Chaz on the dance floor. Her accessories include 1980’s Madonna style gloves and a funky, chunky layered heart that befits her personality. Chaz sported slicked back hair and an Elvis style blue, shiny jacket. Their adoration for each other looks just as cute as Lacey’s outfits. Hopefully, Chaz will benefit from the dance rehearsals and shed a few pounds if he has to endure all that knee pain.
Elisabetta Canalis & Val Chmerkovskiy: Sizzle
Elisabetta looked beautiful in her aqua gown, even more stunning was her smile. Her dress flowed like a billowy cloud as she danced and truly added to the grace of the dance. It’s really a shame that we didn’t see more of her smile because it might have brought a few fans her way. Val and Elizabetta worked great together on the dance floor Monday night, but it was their rehearsal time arguments that looked ugly on them.
Ricki Lake & Derek Hough: Sizzle
Dance does the body good and Ricki Lake’s missing 12 inches really showed this week. Ricki wore a pink, sexy number not meant to cover up flaws but to show off her new body. Derek wore a hot black shirt that he left open and every once in awhile you could see the hot pink lining of the shirt flash when he danced. The female population of North America wishes to thank Derek for not buttoning that shirt. Their costumes fit the dance and added to it’s appeal. Great Job!
Nancy Grace & Tristan MacManus: Fizzle
Is it possible for DWTS to put Nancy Grace in a dress that isn’t cutting off her blood circulation because it is too tight? This is the second week in a row with dark drab colors for the duo, if they are trying to hide her size it’s not working. Nancy don’t hide your light under a bushel wear bright colors and own it. During next weeks Tango Nancy should be wearing a smoking hot red dress that doesn’t shove the twins up to her chin. Tristan needs a little personality in his costumes, bronze on black isn’t really cutting it.
Chynna Phillips & Tony Dovolani: Sizzle
There isn’t much that can look bad on Chynna Phillips because her body is thin yet curvy. She looked great in this beaded flapper girl creation. Tony wore a finely fitted zoot suit minus the knee length jacket and clothes really do make the man. They looked and moved great together no matter what Carrie Ann Inaba thinks.
Carson Kressley & Anna Trebunskaya: Fizzle
Carson is going to be the next guest on “What Not To Wear” when his fellow fashion guru’s get a look at this outfit. Okay, we get it Carson, you don’t take yourself too seriously, but this is going over the top. This technicolor, Pee-wee Herman style costumes only enhance the “we’re here for fun, not to compete” vibe this duo is putting out. We love that Carson is entertaining and fun but look forward to the time when he tackles a dance with a more serious approach. Maybe next weeks tango will be the opportunity for Carson to show us his serious side. Anna’s dress was adorable, complete with Wilma Flinstone hair and necklace.
Kristin Cavallari & Mark Ballas: Sizzle
This costume was a paint by the numbers version of the classic Marilyn Monroe look complete with red lipstick, hair and white dress. Mark had just as much fun flipping Kristin’s dress up as he did actually doing the Quickstep. It’s a good thing they looked so good because Len was in a bad mood Monday night and when Mark broke the rules again, it might have been enough to garner a bad score. The outfits scored a perfect 30 but the dance scored a 22 and with that break in hold they are lucky to get that.
Robert Kardashian & Cheryl Burke: Fizzle
Seriously, Rob has enough of a lazy bum reputation you don’t have to go dressing him like one. This attempt at a beach theme would have been much better if he was wearing surfer board shorts with a tight tank. Rob came off looking like a 40 yr old on his way to the corner store in Honolulu to pick up a six pack before he plopped down on the couch. Rob really improved his dance, now somebody please make the wardrobe match the man. Rob will be dancing the Rumba next Monday night and will have to get over that shy factor in order to make the dance of love believable.
J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff: Sizzle
Extra Extra Read all about it, J. R. Martinez and Karina Smrnoff have it going on. Dressed as old newboys these two Jived, yes I said Jived, their way into the hearts of DWTS fans. These costumes sealed the deal on a partnership that works. They were like matching book ends with a story to tell via a jump jive and wail. Apparently the judges don’t know the bearer of good news when they see it because they nit picked J.R. And Karina’s dance to pieces. These costumes were perfect for the dance routine that J. R. and Karina did.
Hope Solo & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Fizzle
These costumes were wrong all over the place. Hope’s pants were so low we were dangerously close to the netherlands but those purple Converse style heels and half top were fantastic. Each day you learn something new and we learned that it possible to make Maks look like a nerd. When did Maks start competing with Carson for dorkiest look? Note to wardrobe, no more headbands on men and let’s skip the white shorts and tennis shirt as well. Max finally get’s a hot partner and dresses like a dud….so disappointing.
David Arquette & Kym Johnson: Fizzle
Let’s start with the bright, white shoes on David. Simple hint, you don’t highlight the feet of a dancer who doesn’t know the steps. It would have been better if David was wearing gold shoes to match his hideous pants. At least then, the glaring error’s of his footwork would blend in a little. Kym Johnson looked amazing and did her best to calm down the crazy that is David, she has her hands full. Kym looked much better in gold than a lanky David Arquette who is better suited for dark colors.
