All About Carrie Ann Inaba's Tina Turner-Inspired 'Dancing' Look

Posted on

Monday night’s Dancing with the Stars offered emotional highs, low scores and, of course, a whole lotta glitter. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba brought her own brand of sparkle to the dance floor, too — and tells us all about it exclusively today.

For Monday’s show, “I chose an electric-blue Alberto Makali halter gown,” Inaba tells PEOPLE. “The color was so vibrant I couldn’t resist!”

Stylist Kit Scarbo added a bit of bling to the look with diamond earrings and a pearl ring from Erica Courtney, and the serious “vertabracelet” (actually the $850 pave “Dinosaur Bones” cuff) from Noir. “Kit found that beautiful piece and we built around it,” Inaba explains. “It might be my favorite piece of jewelry of all time. It’s so unique … and sensual.”

Makeup artist Joanne McCarthy gave Inaba some lengthy lashes and a neutral lip, so to counter that, hair stylist Anna Maria Orzano majorly pumped up the volume on the judge’s mane. “We did big hair in honor of Tina Turner,” Inaba shares. “Every once in a while you have to have a little fun!” Our fashion philosophy exactly! Tell us: What do you think of Inaba’s week two Dancing look? What else do you want to see her wear this season?
