On last night's Dancing With The Stars, Karina Smirnoff and Jacoby Jones performed two distinctly different dances. So when searching for inspiration for their costumes, two elements came to Smirnoff's mind: fire and ice. After waltzing to James Brown's "It's A Man's World," in icy cool blues, they upped the fire for their paso doble (literally, flames shot up from the stage!). "I wanted the dress to be reminiscent of the power and fire of the dance," Smirnoff told InStyle.com. "The floor length canary yellow gown had a bodice trimmed in bold black lace, evoking the ebb and flow of the emotion running throughout the dance." The judges were equally revved up. "This wasn't a dance floor, this was a bull ring," Len Goodman declared.
