All the Show-Stopping Outfits Ariana Madix Has Treated Us to on "DWTS"
Ariana Madix's outfits are so good, it's scary. On Oct. 31, the reality star hit the stage for a Halloween-themed Monster Night on "Dancing With the Stars" season 32. To no one's surprise, Madix had a very glamorous take on the assignment, dressing up as a hauntingly beautiful harpy with a sparkly black sequin bodice, asymmetrical feather skirt, and matching feather shoulder pieces. She wore her hair up in makeshift horns, adding a leather corset and black fishnets to complete the part-bird, part-woman look. The same episode, she also wore an ethereal white dress, which, upon closer inspection, appeared to be splattered with drops of fake blood.
These past few weeks, the "Vanderpump Rules" personality has built a strong resumé of "DWTS" outfits. On Oct. 24, she paid tribute to one of the most significant times in her life for Most Memorable Year Night, wearing an airy dress with a completely sheer skirt and silver sequin embroidery. She also stepped out in a lacy Elsa-inspired gown for Disney100 Night on Oct. 17, and caught our eye in a light pink gown with a fluffy hemline for Motown Night on Oct. 10. That's not to mention her Latin Night two-piece set on Oct. 3, which included silky green opera gloves and tons of glittery fringe, perfect for her samba to Bad Bunny's "Me Porto Bonito."
Madix originally set the bar high at the Sept. 26 "DWTS" premiere, where she took the stage in a fiery red costume reminiscent of the revenge dress she wore to the "Vanderpump Rules" season 10 reunion. The sultry outfit featured similar cutouts, long sleeves, and a strip of red fabric across her stomach, with the addition of double thigh-high leg slits and sparkling crystal details.
Madix first wore the ab-baring design in the midst of #Scandoval, where she found out her boyfriend of nine years was having an affair with one of her closest friends. Her original look wasn't technically a dress, but rather a crop top and matching maxi skirt — both from Mônot — but it definitely made a statement. She debuted the re-created ensemble for a fitting tango performance set to "Love Myself" by Hailee Steinfeld, dancing alongside a much more loyal partner, Pasha Pashkov.
Madix explained that "Dancing With the Stars" was originally something she decided to do in order to move on from the chaos of her very public breakup. "As a woman, cheaters suck, but you just showed anybody who is watching how you handle a cheater," judge Carrie Ann Inaba said to Madix in praise of her high-energy performance in the premiere.
Moving forward, Madix told the judges she's excited to show off a side of herself people might not have seen before. "This is going to be a more confident, fun, and vibrant version of myself," she said, per People. "Because I don't need anybody else. I love me."
