"Dancing with the Stars" pro ballroom dancer Karina Smirnoff made sure to wear nipple pasties underneath the side-boob-flaunting silver and black lace dress that she wore to the premiere of "Machete Kills". At least that's what photographers snapped at the red carpet of the October 2 screening in Hollywood.
Nip pasty slip aside, the 35-year-old Ukranian professional ballroom dancer rocked her mini-dress, which she paired with black heels and simply jewelry and make-up, with her hair held up. Enabling her to pull off her sexy look of course is her fit body, thanks to dancing, which she does a lot of on "DWTS".
"Prepping for 'Dancing with the Stars' each week is a lot like training for a marathon - you have to work on your stamina and stay focused," said the partner of the show's season 13 winner J.R. Martinez. "However, you also have to be moved by the story you're telling and the music you're dancing to," which maybe the reason why she has won multiple times on the reality dancing competition.
The multi-awarded dancing champion said that if you "dance with your heart, and you give it 100 percent every time without holding anything back, good things are going to come to you and good things are going to happen." This proved true for Smirnoff who initially thought "only a few dancers who really make a career out of it."
