Ryan Lochte Is The Mad Hatter For Halloween!

Ryan Lochte and his fiance Kayla Rae Reid go all out for Halloween with their Alice in Wonderland costumes at the 2016 Casamigos Halloween Party on Friday night (October 28) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The newly engaged couple met up inside the bash with Derek Hough, his girlfriend Hayley Erbert and lifestyle guru Lauren Conrad.

In his latest blog, Derek opened up about Halloween week on DWTS: “I don’t know what my Halloween costume is going to be in real life, but we’re doing a spider theme for the dance.”

He added, “She’s [Marilu Henner] a black widow and I get trapped in her web. It’s kind of cool the way it starts. We’re going to kind of make the web. I went to a fabric store on Tuesday and bought some white elastics and we’re going to do this choreography with them.”

FYI: Ryan and Kayla are wearing costumes from Yandy.com.

Derek Hough Will Dance Viennese Waltz With Marilu Henner on DWTS Next Week

Derek Hough takes a casual walk on his way to Pressed Juicery in Los Angeles on Friday (October 7).

The 31-year-old pro dancer and actor took a little break from Dancing With The Stars practice with partner Marilu Henner for next week’s show. They’ll be dancing a Viennese Waltz to “Surprise Yourself” by Jack Garratt for Most Memorable Year Week.

“I’m going to take a different approach this week with Marilu. I want to have the movement come from her and have it be authentic and organic from her body. I’ll just be there to guide it,” Derek wrote in his TVGuide blog.

He continued, “I want her to feel nonrestrictive and to feel like she can dance. We had two intense dances back-to-back, the tango and the paso, and I think the intensity was misinterpreted as stiffness in her mind. So with the Viennese waltz, we’re going to crank up the fluidity and the softness.”
