With Season 16 of Dancing With The Stars coming to an end, Karina Smirnoff and partner Jacoby Jones transformed the ballroom into one giant party for their final dance of the season. And they had tap-dancing kids, drummers, and step-dancers join them! The duo freestyled to Macklemore’s “Can’t Hold Us” in fringe outfits decked out in Jones’s Baltimore Ravens colors. ”I wanted to represent Jacoby’s hometown for our freestyle and I wanted the audience to smile when they saw us dance,” Smirnoff told InStyle.com. “We wanted to make it a celebration on the dance floor!” With Mardi Gras, Bourbon Street, confetti, and beads on her mind, Smirnoff focused on embellishments. “The shoulder piece was made out of jewels and beading. It was connected to a glittery, purple bralet.” The performance embodied what the couple brought to the competition each week: energy and fun. Find out if they are able to win the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy on tonight’s live results show at 9/8c on ABC.

If you’ve ever wanted glasses with change-the-world superpowers, Warby Parker just created them. The one-for-one eyewear company, which donates a pair of glasses for each pair sold, teamed up with Warner Bros. Pictures to create a limited-edition capsule collection inspired by Superman’s alter-ego Clark Kent, who will hit the big screen on June 14 in Man of Steel. The collection includes two frames each for men and women—“one bold and one bookish,” Warby Parker co-founder Neil Blumenthal describes—and each “perfect for all of your civilian responsibilities.” In addition to donating a pair of frames to someone in need with every $95 pair sold, $15 of each purchase will be donated to 826NYC, a non-profit dedicated to helping students’ writing skills. Now that’s a powerful purchase! Visit warbyparker.com/man-of-steel to shop the collection now.
