Reality Replica: Lacey Schwimmer

Pro dancer Lacey Schwimmer may not be appearing full time on this season of Dancing with the Stars, but she still makes some appearances with the cast, as she recently performed in the Dancing with the Stars Live in Las Vegas show at The Tropicana.  The pro dancer walked the red carpet of the event in this chic belted dress paired with uber-trendy ombre hair. Find out how you can replicate her edgy and chic red carpet style.

Lacey Schwimmer has showed off her dance moves with celebrities including Kyle Massey and Chaz Bono and she carries that confident spirit off the dance floor, as well. She knows how to dress her curvy figure to make the most of her assets.

“I have curves, boobs and a big butt,” she told People, about living up to the pressure to be skinny as a dancer. “But I’m living my life to the fullest, no regrets.”

This belted mini dress with a flared skirt flatters Lacey’s curvy figure. The cinched, belted waist draws attention to her tiny waist, while the flared skirt conceals her hips. The high neckline draws attention to her face, while minimizing her bustling.
Copy her look in the Dorothy Perkins Color Block Circle Dress ($69), which would fit and flatter curvy figures like Lacey’s.  This dress is in the same peachy—pink shade as Lacey’s, and features a flared skirt and black belt to highlight your waist.

For a striped version of Lacey’s dress, check out the River Island Stripe Skater Dress with Heart Belt ($50.90) from ASOS. This chic mini dress features a wide round neckline and a high belted waist.

Lacey pairs her short skin with black heels with a sexy ankle strap, similar to the Badgley Mischka Wynter heels ($126) from Zappo.

She is also wearing the trendiest hair color of the season –ombre highlights. With this color, the hair is darker at the roots and gets lighter at the ends. For a more wearable look for every day (and not just the red carpet) you may want to go with a more subtle ombre look. If you have darker hair, you could just skip the highlights for a few months!

If you want instant ombre hair, you may want to consider leaving this color job for the professionals. Ask your hair stylist for sun-kissed highlights that are focused from your chin level down.  You can also get a few strands of hair highlighted around your face for a less severe look.

Even though Lacey looks fab dressed up on the red carpet, she says she mostly lives in activewear. “My favorite item is the Actra Fitness capri pants — I have one in every color,” said Lacey, who recently partnered up with Lady Foot Locker. “I can hit a movie then the gym in the same outfit, just change it up a little.”
