    Baby got back

    On Nov. 8, Disney star Kyle Massey danced a graceful Viennese waltz with pro partner Lacey Schwimmer. The judges praised the elegant performance, but unfortunately, the same couldn't be said of Schwimmer's gown. Whoever designed this mess would've received a drubbing from the "Project Runway" judges. No woman on this planet wants to look bigger than she is, especially if she's got a fantastic body like Schwimmer does!

    Seeing spots

    On the Nov. 1 episode, Brandy and pro Maks Chmerkovskiy performed Gilles Marini's season 8 foxtrot. Bruno said their dance was "sizzling with sex," but unfortunately, her outfit was nothing but a hot mess. There's the right way to do leopard print, and then there's this. (At least Maks looks dashing.)

    Jolly Green Giant

    The judges loved Rick Fox's quickstep on Nov. 1, but it's amazing how they could pay attention to the dance when the former NBA star looked like the Jolly Green Giant rather than his usual dashing self. And really, the dalmatian polka dots inside his zoot suit and the cow-inspired tie don't help.

    Ready for a sugar fix?

    Bristol Palin and pro partner Mark Ballas performed the tango on Oct. 25 that had the judges praising her improvement. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba was so surprised by the transformation she said, "That was ... who are you?!" We have the answer to that question: Violet Beauregarde from "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"! All the purple and curves ... who else would it be?

    Inside out

    "Dancing" has always been a fan of the revealing costumes -- especially for its ladies -- and that was no exception on Oct. 18 when Audrina Patridge danced the rumba with pro partner Tony Dovolani. But this time, it looked like the costume designers ran out of time and just threw her in a bra and panties, then stapled a sheer pink sheet to her. At least she's got the body to pull it off.

    Going bananas

    There have been some pretty interesting costumes on "Dancing" before, but an ape costume? To go with Bristol Palin jiving to "The Monkees" theme song on Oct. 18? Ugh.

    Grandma Brady

    Yes, "The Brady Bunch" went off the air quite a while ago and the stars have aged a bit, but was it really necessary to cover up Florence Henderson this much, and in Christmas jammies? The lady is in great shape!

    Casper ... again?

    Are the "DWTS" costumers running out of ideas? Brandy wore a bedsheet during her rumba on Oct. 11. Know who else has worn a sheet on the dance floor? Pamela Anderson, when she rumba'd on April 12.

    Getting twisted

    Poor Brandy. The singer seems to be getting stuck with quite a few questionable outfits this season. When she samba'd on Oct. 4, she had to wear this orange mess. The color wasn't terrible, but curly streamers for a skirt? Yuck.

    Dancing with pride

    While dancing the samba to encourage the message of acceptance on Oct. 4, Margaret Cho wore what Bruno rightly called the rainbow flag (he praised her for it). The dress moved nicely during her dance, even if the colors were a bit distracting. But the headpiece was just too much. Thank goodness she took it off early.

    Just FYI ...

    Rick Fox and pro partner Cheryl Burke danced a jive that was packed with fun and energy on Sept. 27. But really, was the labeling on the back of her outfit necessary? We know exactly what that is, thank you.

    Stay puffed!

    Disney star Kyle Massey danced the quickstep on Sept. 27 with pro partner Lacey Schwimmer, who was drowning in a sea of fabric. Even head judge Len Goodman pointed out, "It was as though you were engulfed in a featherduster."

    Ready for a little GTL

    Why dance in a ballroom gown when you can dance in a swimsuit with a giant orange ruffle thrown across the front! It's perfect for the tanning part of Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's daily routine of gym, tan, laundry. Pro dancer Karina Smirnoff made the best of a tough situation when she performed the cha-cha with Sorrentino on Sept. 20.
