Yes, Alfonso Ribeiro brought the house down with “The Carlton” on the Monday, Oct. 6, episode of Dancing With the Stars, earning himself a perfect score from the judges. But there was one little lady whose performance, sartorial as it may be, had us raising our perfect 10 paddles: Julianne Hough!

The former pro and current judge, 26, waltzed to her seat at the judge’s table wearing a chartreuse Jenny Packham halter gown, nipped at the neck with a floral broach. Dainty pearl earrings and a statement red lip finished the glamour girl ensemble.

And the gorgeousness didn’t stop there! Hairstylist Riawna Capri created a romantic updo for the Rock of Ages actress: a braid that traced the nape of her neck and finished in a low, tousled bun. The pro and co-owner of celeb-loved Nine Zero One salon in Los Angeles posted this image to her Instagram page, so we could appreciate the style from every angle.

While we were melting over Hough’s ensemble, the blonde beauty was all wrapped up in contestant Bethany Mota’s moving performance, a rumba to Colbie Caillat’s “Try” dedicated to fans who have been bullied. “I love what this beautiful girl stands for! @bethanymota,” Hough wrote via Instagram on Tuesday, Oct. 7, shouting-out Lauren Paul’s Kind Campaign to support Mota’s message.

“I promise when you worry less about what people say and focus on being kind to someone else, it's more internally fulfilling than any external compliment you could ever receive!” Hough signed off, and added, “Love you guys xoxo.”
