There’s just something about Julianne Hough that is so breathtaking. That icy blonde hair and cool blue eyes; she is easily one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. She first came on the scene as a dancer showing off her exceptional moves on Dancing with the Stars. From there she continued her career as a dancer but also made time to make some movies as well. She’s had a long career as a dancer starting from the tender age of 10 when she went off to study dance at London’s Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts. She always wanted to be a dancer and chasing her dreams eventually paid off when she became the first dancer from the United States to be crowned International Latin Youth Champion as well as Junior Blackpool World Latin Champion. That is no easy task for an American girl. When she eventually joined the team on DWTS, she already had a lot of experience behind her. She started off on the show as a company dancer, not one of the leads but when one of the lead dancers injured herself Hough was able to replace her.
From Dancing with the Stars to movies and then to a music career, Hough has proven that she is a force to be reckoned with. She’s got talent and beauty that has the potential to take her to the top. She may look innocent, but this icy blonde is anything but. Here are a few photos that prove just that.
15. An American Dream
We love how patriotic Julianne Hough is in this photograph. Donning a bikini and wrapped completely in a flag, we can’t help but feel like there is more that we want to see in this photo. Her hair is long and blonde in this photo, and it’s stunning, giving her that beach bum look. Both she and her brother Derek are dancers and were both on DWTS together. They make a great team, and they often go on tour together. Recently they wrapped up a tour called Move Live on Tour which not only featured dancing but singing as well. We already know that Julianne has a set of pipes on her. Derek had this to say about his sister and her talents, “I’m so excited that Julianne is a judge this season. You’d think I’d be sick of her by now, but I’m not! We became closer than ever over the tour, and it was a great bonding experience for us, so I’m really happy I get to see her even more now. She’s in the best place of her life that I’ve ever seen her. She’s really happy, and I’m incredibly proud of her.”
14. A Saucy Style
Just one of many sexy outfits that Julianne Hough now wears as a professional dancer. The dancers just love to show off their sexy and toned midriff. I love this black dress because not only does it show off her great curves but it’s the kind of dress that is going to look great while on stage. You would think with all of Julianne’s experience not only on the show but off it as well that her opinion on dancing would go a long way. But there are other dancers that believe that her judging is not fair. There’s a good chance that they are just jealous, but you can be the judge of that. Karina Smirnoff doesn’t like the fact that she is a judge because her brother is still on the show as well, “I think she is a great girl, I’ve known her for many years. I think that she is wonderful, gorgeous, and talented, but I don’t know if it’s ethical that she is judging while her brother is competing. I may be the most fair person in the world, but if my mom is dancing and she trips, I would be like, ‘Well, I didn’t see that …”
13. Vacation Time
Who wouldn’t want to go on vacation with Julianne Hough when she looks as fantastic as she does in this photo. There are many pictures of Julianne Hough donning a bikini on a family vacation; some she goes solo on while others she is with her long-time boyfriend, Brook. Not only does this bikini look amazing on her but you can see just how happy she is due to the fact that her whole face is lighting up when she smiles. Many people were surprised when Julianne came out with her own album, but they probably shouldn’t have been since singing has always been a part of her life. Her family had a country band called White Lightning, and she often sang and played the bongos. “We were kind of known as the blond Osmonds,” she said in an Associated Press interview. “We were known as ‘White Lightning’ because of our hair. It’s kind of embarrassing now.”
12. White Perfection
Julianne Hough is heart-crushingly beautiful in this photo and wow what an amazing body. It’s pictures like this that prove that Julianne can claim any man’s heart and keep him weak in the knees. She is laying back stretching out that hot dancer’s body wearing a shirt that’s unbuttoned just a bit. Talk about sexy! Surprisingly enough this is one actress/dancer that likes to indulge when it comes to food. She has said that on more than one occasion that her favorite foods revolve around pizza and pasta. Hard to believe with a body like that but Julianne doesn’t believe in being good all the time. A dancer has to be very careful with her body more so than an actress; a dancer has to stay lean at all times because not only is dancing hard work but it’s important for a dancer always to be at the top of her game, and that requires a lean physique.
11. Dance Moves
There is nothing sexier on a dancer than a toned midriff; that’s why they always have such scintillating outfits that show them off. Julianne has been a dancer since she was a young child and she has been working hard ever since. I love how she is posed in this outfit because it shows off her curves in all the right ways. Although Julianne started off on DWTS as a dancer, she has guest-starred on the show as a judge on two occasions. “I know in the past with my guest judging; there’s been controversy or whatever. But it’s only because I really want to see them improve. Sometimes the truth sucks, and you don’t want to hear that, but hopefully the person receiving the truth and the honesty knows that it’s coming from a place of love and a place of where I want to see people improve. Honesty’s a b*tch, but it really is the only way to be.”
10. Hello Hough!
This picture is so far from innocent and much closer to red hot than we could ever imagine. The best part is the girl is fully clothed, and she’s still smoking hot. There is no need to walk around in next to nothing; she has the task of being gorgeous completely covered. Wearing a sweater and a pair of shorts this girl shows off her sexy stomach and makes us all want to hit the gym and do extra core exercises. Since her breakup with Ryan Seacrest, Julianne has been dating Washington Capitals hockey player Brooks Laich. The couple looks fantastic together and if they ever decide to procreate they are going to have one hell of a beautiful baby. The two have now been dating for a few years now, and they seem to be going strong. Many people thought her coupling with Ryan was a tad weird, but no one seems to mind the fact that Brooks is by her side.
9. Party Boat
In this photo, Julianne Hough is seen on vacation with a few of her friends. She is also showcasing the Enviable Bikini Body while staying in Mexico. It’s a stunning suit, and she has the perfect body to show it off. Many people don’t know that the stunning dancer was once abused while she was in London studying dance. It’s not easy being away from family and having to fend for yourself. During an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, she stated, “I was ten years old looking like I was 28, being a very sensual dancer. I was a tormented little kid who had to put on this sexy façade because that was my job and my life. While I was in London, I was abused, mentally, physically, everything,” she said, adding “I’m a very forgiving person, and I don’t want to hurt anybody. What’s past is past.”
8. Smoky Eyes
There are just too many great things to say about this picture. Those eyes light up with some black smoky eye effects and those lips…wow. The girl is beyond gorgeous, and then we look at the outfit, and it’s the kind of two-piece that makes you think that she might be able to make you do whatever she wanted. Julianne Hough is a huge country music fan, and one of her favorites is Shania Twain. We can’t blame her, of course, Shania is not only gorgeous but has some pretty great vocals as well. While Julianne was studying in London, she would often get homesick. In order to ease the pain of it, she would often listen to Shania Twain CDs while she was away. It was how she was able to survive staying away from home for so long.
7. Dancer’s Legs
We could just stare at those legs all day long – they are that mesmerizing…and long! This outfit is a typical number for the dancers, but in this case, it’s for a photo shoot. The coloring of the outfit against her tanned skin really makes the whole style pop. Julianne Hough loves dogs, in fact, she is obsessed with two of her own. She has two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, named Harley and Lexi. She is often seen with Lexi at multiple airports as she loves to travel with her dogs. She said in an interview once, “I’m obsessed. Literally people who follow me on Twitter are like, ‘Can you please stop tweeting about your dogs? Because we get it. They’re cute.’” Many of us can attest to the love we have for our pets, but maybe Julianne does go a bit overboard.
She might just outdo the original Sandy played by Olivia Newton-John. Can we say stunning? Julianne played the lead in Grease Live leading the play to produce 5-star ratings all around. People loved her portrayal of the character and this iconic outfit hugs her body like a glove. When she was on DWTS, she won both season four and five, the one a showing the world that she knew what she was doing when it came to bringing a protégé to the finale in just a matter of weeks. Many people have stated that being part of the show is grueling and if performing in the season doesn’t force you to lose weight then nothing else will. I guess that explains the “slammin” body Julianne has.
5. Just Another Day at the Office
When it comes to dancing Julianne Hough is at the top of her game, and wearing salacious clothing is just part of her job. It’s really hard to appear sweet and innocent in an outfit like this one. It’s just another typical outfit that dancers wear to bring about some flare and spice to their act. This outfit is part dress part bikini, and Julianne wears it with style. This is one time where her dance act took her to the top of the judge’s table on DWTS. Julianne is serious about her singing career and in 2009 she blew people’s minds when she won two awards at the Academy of Country Music Awards. The awards she won were for Top New Artist and Top New Female Vocalist. She released her first album in 2008, and it sold 67,000 copies in the first week.
4. Sizzling in Black
The black dress she is wearing has serious bling and is backless. It’s the kind of dress that makes it impossible to keep your eyes off the girl. This is one outfit that she wore during one of her performances on DWTS. Her pose and body language is all about seducing her partner in every way possible. She is not shy when it comes to her outfits during performances, in fact, she loves them. The shorter and sexier the better as far as she is concerned. “I’m the first to admit it: I like being sexy! I love the shorter shorts and my dad’s like, ‘Cover up!’ Modesty that’s my biggest downfall,” she said in a People magazine interview. With a body like that, we really can’t blame the dancer for wanting to flaunt it as much as possible. Her career calls for such outfits, and we aren’t about to complain.
3. Shorter Styles
She doesn’t just like shorter shorts; sometimes she likes to cut her hair really short as well. Sometimes it doesn’t work out while other times it suits a girl just fine. In this case, it doesn’t matter if Julianne has short hair or long hair – she manages to be breathtaking in every picture. This is a great picture of her where she looks wet, her hair tousled. This look is very reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe in her iconic white dress. It’s not hard to believe that Julianne was ranked number 30 out of 100 on Maxim magazine’s list of “Hot 100 of 2008.” In fact, the girl is probably much higher on most people’s “hot” lists. She has proven in her career that she is not only easy on the eyes but a very talented dancer as well.
2. Lady in Red
Not only is she one of the hottest women in Hollywood, but she knows how to be classy as well. This beautiful babe found a hero in Tom Cruise in 2012. She told E! that during the filming of Rock of Ages she suffered a dance-related injury and Tom came to the rescue. “He hooked me up with a massage therapist and stuff like that. I was like, Tom Cruise cares about me! It was pretty cool.” Tom Cruise played the part of Stacee Jaxx. Julianne played one of the dancers in the hilarious movie and was actually Tom’s love interest at one point in the movie. It was the third movie that she acted in after Burlesque and Footloose.
1. Stunning Smile
This great picture shows Julianne Hough at an event wearing a dress that is all about the cleavage. Her hair is short in this picture, and she has an Oscar-winning smile. In 2010, she starred in Burlesque alongside Cher and Christina Aguilera. She played a burlesque dancer and found that the choreography that was involved in the movie was a lot worse than what she experienced while on the set of Dancing with The Stars. When she played in the movie Footloose, it was the first role that she had where she was the lead. It was a remake of the 1984 classic that starred Kevin Bacon. Julianne, of course, played the love interest in the remake as they rebel against the rules the locals have set in place for their children. Julianne has made quite the career in Hollywood as a triple threat; it will be exciting to see what she has in store for us next.
