Erin Andrews: Maksim Is “Designing” My DWTS Costumes


What will ESPN's Erin Andrews wear on Dancing With the Stars?

"Maks is designing all my costumes!" she told of her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, at the grand opening of Drai's Hollywood Wednesday.

Hilarious pics! Before they were on Dancing With the Stars

"Expect a lot of sexy stuff!" chimed in Chmerkovskiy.

Not that Andrews, 31, minds.

"I have no problem with the costumes because this is a professional dancer so they know what they are doing and I trust them. I don't look at it as wearing a short skirt or that you are wearing something skimpy," Andrews told Us. "It's what they do for a living. It's their profession so I think it's cool to be a part of it."

Look back at DWTS rehearsal mishap pics!

Chmerkovskiy says Andrews is "doing amazing" in rehearsals for the show, which premieres next Monday on ABC.

She doesn't exactly agree. "I need a couple more days," she told Us of her 4-to-5-hour-a-day practice sessions. "My body feels OK, but today I was bleeding from my feet. Toes were bleeding and I thought it was awesome. I elbowed him in the face today!"

Andrews is in it to win it.

"I didn't come here to just leave next week, I hope," she said. "I am a competitive person just by working in sports and I would love to be in the finals."
