Over at Glamour, Slaves to Fashion blogger Tracey Lomrantz caught up with Dancing With the Star's costume designer, Randall Christensen. We love what he said about dressing the stars on the show: "The thing is, big-name actors and actresses aren't necessarily the most fun to dress. They're the most visible, but they're used to working in glamorous clothing and getting all dressed up. It's the athletes, the older women, the people who I have to get in the dressing room and strip down and earn their trust that really make me think creatively. They may be celebrities, but when we're in that dressing room, they're all just scared little girls that want to look their best." Celebrities, just like us! [Glamour.com]
