Erin Andrews' DWTS Blog, Week Four: How She Stepped Outside the Box
Wearing bold colors and daring styles, the host shares her thoughts on this week's looks
For Monday’s fun Cirque du Soleil-themed dance night, Andrews wore a bold Theia Couture gown in a color she’s never worn before — magenta! — paired with a deconstructed ballerina bun (below left). “When I saw the dress and the neckline detail, I immediately knew this was a ‘hair up’ night,” her hair stylist Ryan Randall said.
“We had to find a happy medium when it came to my bun,” Andrews added. “I get scared I look way too tall with it on top of my head, so we agreed on the the mid-level height.”
The star’s makeup artist Lisa Ashley doesn’t tend to go for “match matchy” makeup, but with this dress, she couldn’t resist. “[I added] a pop of this beautiful fuchsia color all over the eyes to create this this soft, sheer look,” she told us. To get the look, Ashley took an eggplant and bright pink shadow onto the lower lid, while blending a softer eggplant shade above into the crease. She completed the eye look by smudging gray shadow along with upper lash line with Bobbi Brown’s Black Amethyst Smokey Eye Kajal Liner.
Andrews stepped outside of the box for Tuesday’s results show, wearing a fitted, pale pink Mason by Michelle Mason jumpsuit. “Anytime I can get away with wearing pants in the ballroom, I am down to party!” she said.
Stylist Anita Patrickson says Andrews has some tomboy vibes, which made the vision for this look a perfect fit for her. “She loves pants. It’s the perfect compromise between comfort and femininity,” Patrickson said.
It took some convincing for Andrews to get on board with the slicked back ponytail Randall proposed to go with this jumpsuit. “At first we did a center-part pony, but then I looked up some of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s slicked ponies, and we made the change to a side part,” she said.
To prep her hair for the sleek style, Randall used the Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer and a spritz of Evian’s Mineral Water Spray. After flat ironing the low pony, he finished with the Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil “for shine and to tame fly aways.”
Ashley pulled the entire ensemble together with all-over bronzy beauty — she used products in different shades of gold, from Sisely’s Phyto-Ombre Glow shadow in Amber on the eyes and cheeks to Algenist’s REVEAL Concentrated Luminizing Drops as a cheekbone highlight.
“I couldn’t stop smiling,” Andrews said of Tuesday night’s completed look. “I was obsessed!”
