She's a Dancing With the Stars favorite, of course best known for her sexy and sultry moves on the dance
floor, but also known for her sense of style... and we've got the inside scoop on Karina
Smirnoff's beauty and style secrets.
Sonia: When you're not decked out in all the dance costumes, you're not onstage performing what's
your favorite thing to wear?
Karina: I do like comfortable clothes. I do like slacks, you know especially we're
entering Summer and I have a whole
new set of wardrobe that I'm ready to wear, like the linen pants, the
loose shirts, the Summer dresses, the chiffon, silks, so
I'm excited, but I think this Summer more than ever, we're channeling
the feminine look more than ever and I like comfortable stuff too
but I think that heels with a Summer dress, belted,
big hats, so I'm excited for the Summer because it's different.
Sonia: And lace too.
Karina: And lace too, yes. I mean, obviously it's in because we're both wearing it. Sonia: What about any beauty or
style secrets? Karina: I'm convinced a lot of boutiques have these special mirrors that make
you look extra thin and extra pretty
and then you take the dress or outfit home and put it on and you're like, 'that didn't look that good', you know?
I started online shopping
because I'm doing something with them where I sell some of the stuff on hipswap where
it benefits the charity I'm working with
even like Gilt
It's funny, it's spelled different, it's Gilt. I love Gilt. I get
little you know updates on my phone where the new Prada outfit is
available in a week, so it's kinda cool. I shop in different places when I
go in I try
to find something unique and different everytime.
Sonia: And beauty, makeup secrets anything like that? Karina: Well, I have my own line and
the only reason why I'm gonna say Girlactik is the best because I've actually put
in a lot of time and effort into developing makeup that's good for your
skin because usually you put it on and
you look great and then two hours later you see it all being caked up and then it's
like getting into your pores
so I wanted to makeup that is not going damage your skin, but that gives you some sort
of benefit. It always looks as if you just put it on, so I'm excited about that.
So, we have a few products out but we're always adding more stuff to the line.
Sonia: See now we have her beauty and makeup secrets, we know why Karina Smirnoff looks
the way she does. Karina: thank you.
