Those sequins and feathers on “Dancing With the Stars” don’t just happen. Before a dancer
can shimmy, Randall Christensen, designs what they’ll shimmy in.
Christensen, a former ballroom dancer and self-taught designer, tells Zap2it which have been his favorite five costumes over the years.
“Edyta Sliwinska is my muse,” he says. “She is one of the few dancers who kept her curves. Anything she has almost worn has been great. She wears about a 1/4 of a yard each week.”
Mulling over his favorites, Christensen picks:
1. “Mel Brown, her paso doble costume was very dominatrix really, really hot.”
2. “I loved Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson in a retro Adam Ant look and she was in a Madonna meets dominatrix. The costume was off the wall. It really worked.”
3. “Julianne Hough‘s white rhinestone encrusted gown. It was rolled in 15,000 rhinestones. She did the quickstep with Helio Castronevas, the racecar driver.”
4. “Kim Kardashian, with Mark Ballas, had a pink and black ball gown.”
