Dancing with the Stars: The All-Star Season Premieres Tonight!Sep 24, 2012 @ 5:53 pm
Dancing with the Stars is back tonight with its 15th season—and it’s an all-star reunion! Past seasons’ favorites like winner Shawn Johnson and pro Karina Smirnoff have returned to work their twinkle toes for the stars’ charities of choice, and we sat down with them both to get the scoop on their fashion for the first episode. “We’ve been going through a couple fittings to make sure the entire outfit is ready to go,” Johnson, who’s dancing with professional Derek Hough, told InStyle.com. ”It’s an awesome cha-cha dress—a lot of fun fringe, and I’m doing the cha-cha so you want to make sure there’s room for moving your hips.” Smirnoff and her partner, Apollo Ohno, are also doing the cha-cha, and she said her look is ”a little crazy, but I think our song’s a little crazy, so they go well together.” Sounds like a lot of great music and costumes will be in tonight’s opener! Tune into ABC at 8/7c tonight to see them all in action.
Plus, see everyone in the all-star cast!
