Dancing With The Stars 2019: The Most Bonkers Costumes We've Seen So Far
This season of 'Dancing With The Stars' has brought us a gorgeous selection of wigs, a tribute to The Wiggles and a sparkly dress that came from a very unlikely source.
The creativity we've seen on the dancefloor has been consistently matched by our dancers' wardrobes -- and as we gear up for the grand finale this Monday night at 7.30pm, we decided to take stock of the most out-there costumes to hit Dancing With The Stars.
Jett And Lily Serve Up These French Nobility Inspired Looks
It was sadly the night that we ended up saying goodbye to Jett and Lily as they gracefully bowed out of the semi-finals following a dance-off with Samuel Johnson and Jorja.
But they left us with a lasting impression with costumes that seem to have been inspired by imagining what Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVI would wear on a trip to Bondi -- matching powdered wigs and beauty spots with white jeans and heels, oui!
Courtney Act's Bargain Basement Mermaid Dress
Although it looks like Courtney's semi-final samba dress cost many thousands of dollars -- she revealed a little secret about how the costume department put it together.
"The cool thing about drag is... you see something that may not be for its intended purpose but you re-purpose it and you turn it into glamour!" she told Amanda Keller, explaining that the dress was actually made from three Kmart shopping bags.
"They were $2.99 each and you cut them into strips, and they're hung on with swing tags like a pricing gun," she added.
Craig Revel Horwood Channels Miss Hannigan From Annie
It was a drag transformation that caught us by surprise when our notoriously particular judge Craig Revel Horwood stepped out on stage as the cranky orphanage owner, Miss Hannigan from the musical Annie.
Craig nailed the look for his group's performance of "Easy Street" (performed by Carol Burnett, Tim Curry and Bernadette Peters in the 1982 film) with an auburn wig, heavy eye makeup, silky jammies and a hip flask of bathtub gin.
A Tribute To Australia's Favourite Children's Group
Sure, these costumes were for an elegant rendition of "City Of Stars" from La La Land -- but lined up in just the right order, it was more of a tribute to The Wiggles with Courtney Act, Michelle Bridges, Jimmy Rees and Jett Kenny rounding out the new lineup.
These Magnificent Black And White Jumpsuits And Chest-Baring Shirts
Everyone looked incredible in these black and white numbers for a group performance to Queen's "We Will Rock You" with their billowy sleeves, psychedelic patterns and plunging necklines.
So it was really quite rude that Olympia Valance was knocked out of the comp when she was looking like the glamourous love-child of Beetlejuice and Gene Simmons.
"I just can't believe I'm getting voted out in this outfit," Olympia laughed after the judges explained that they were simply stunned the talented dancer was heading home.
Miguel Maestre And Megan Pay Tribute To Hugh Jackman And Zendaya
There seems to be a pattern here that the greatest costumes end up spelling elimination time for our contestants.
Miguel became our first celeb to leave Dancing after finding himself in the bottom two with Cassandra Thorburn -- but not before he gave it all he had with this performance as The Greatest Showman's PT Barnum.
