Dancing with the Stars Premiere: Karina Smirnoff and Jacoby Jones’s Costumes Were All Ravens, All OverMar 19, 2013 @ 11:30 am
The new season of Dancing with the Stars premiered last night, and we caught up with pro Karina Smirnoff to get the inside scoop on the inspiration behind her fringe costume for her big debut dance with football player (and Super Bowl winner!) Jacoby Jones. “For this week’s look, we really wanted to show love and support to the Baltimore Ravens, so I designed my dress and his outfit to have their colors,” Smirnoff told InStyle.com of the purple and black designs she coordinated to wear for her cha cha to Flo Rida’s “Good Feeling.” “I wanted to bring a little of his world to the dance floor! My dress is what I like to call couture-meets-Baltimore-Ravens, with a little edge.” The duo scored a 20 out of 30, four points behind top-ranked Disney star Zendaya Coleman. Will they make it back on the dance floor next week? Tune in tonight at 9/8c on ABC to find out on the live results show.
Plus, look back at Dancing With the Stars in seasons past!
