The veteran TV judge stole the show as she turned up on the panel in a glitzy gold Alex Perry gown and sleek, blond hair with bangs. In a post-show post to her Instagram page, Carrie Ann showed off the jaw-dropping sequin dress as she leaned over and blew a kiss to her fans.
In the caption to the photo shared to her social media page, the former Fly Girl noted she was happy she found a push-up bra that fit her. She also credited ABC’s resident jeweler, Neil Lane, for her gorgeous jewelry, which included a chunky bracelet and shiny drop earrings.
In reference to her surprising new hairstyle, the 52-year-old joked that blondes have more fun and bangs are fun, too. She also tagged her stylist and makeup artist for helping her to achieve the picture-perfect Dancing with the Stars look.
Fans reacted to Carrie Ann’s sizzling golden goddess look in the comments section to the post, writing sweet compliments and adding heart and fire emoji to their remarks.
“I love the blonde on you,” one fan wrote.
“Sista your new look is smokin…that hair, those eyes. Outshined the host!” another chimed in.
Others noted Carrie Ann was almost unrecognizable with her new look.
“Who was the new judge? ha ha…” one fan wrote.
“Thought this was JLo!” another added.

This was the second week in a row that Carrie Ann brought major glam to the DWTS stage. For her premiere night look, she stunned with a blond wig and plunging silver gown.
The only female star to appear on every season of DWTS recently credited new host Tyra Banks for upping the fashion on the long-running ABC celebrity ballroom show.
“The fashion game just went way up,” Carrie Ann previously said of Tyra’s influence. She also said she was ready for more “fashion” and “fierceness” with the supermodel on board.
For Week 2, she wasn’t the only golden girl on DWTS. Tyra also wore a dazzling gold-and-black metallic ensemble to kick off the show as she entered the stage with a catwalk-style strut.
On Twitter, the America’s Next Top Model alum called herself a “golden lady.” She later wrote of her shiny outfit, “The dancers want to hold that mirror ball but I want to WEAR it!”
