Others commented that they liked Carrie Ann’s look but felt that her natural color is prettier.
“Be yourself.. not Tyra!” one critic wrote, in reference to new host Tyra Banks.
“Don’t mind the blonde but the rest of this smacks of an absolutely, naturally gorgeous woman trying too hard for something she just doesn’t need,” another person wrote.
Others defended Carrie Ann by saying she is being herself and has “many iterations.”
For the live show, Carrie Ann’s finished look also included a sequined, silver and burgundy one-sleeved dress and an array of jewelry that included long, sweeping earrings and several rings.
Carrie Ann has been wearing wigs all season on Dancing with the Stars. The first two weeks saw her in long blond wigs, one of them with bangs. For Disney theme night, Carrie Ann rocked a shorter pink style as she channeled her inner princess. Carrie Ann’s whimsical looks have been one of the most enjoyable parts of the revamped Dancing with the Stars.
The former Fly Girl recently explained why she has been wearing hairpieces this season. Carrie Ann revealed that she had been prescribed medication for her autoimmune disease that had the potential to cause hair loss, so she stocked up on a variety of wig styles to have fun with it. Although she ultimately decided to not take the medicine, the DWTS veteran kept to the plan to wear the wigs since she already had them and thought it would be fun to change things up this season.
