On last night’s episode of Dancing with the Stars, Karina Smirnoff channeled some of her favorite fashionable women for her quickstep with partner Apolo Anton Ohno. “When I watched the 2009 Oscars and saw Sarah Jessica Parker in an amazing, fairy-tale-like mint Dior Haute Couture dress, she looked so stunning and glamorous,” she told InStyle.com of her inspiration for her pale yellow layered dress with jewels on top. As for her retro hair and makeup, she turned to TV’s finest: “I’m also a huge fan of Mad Men, which takes place in the '60s in New York City, and the ladies are stylish and sophisticated,” she said. “I love the bold lipstick and the pinned up hair with tight curls because it makes every girl feel sexy!” Tell us: Did you like Karina’s design this week?
