Karina Smirnoff Hosts TAO Party In Las Vegas

“Dancing with the Stars” star Karina Smirnoff, spent her weekend in Vegas, hosting a day and night at TAO Beach and TAO Nightclub in the Venetian Hotel and Casino.

The Playboy cover model passed along belated birthday wishes to Tony Parker who was also in attendance. Tony celebrated his 29th birthday last week solo – an event he spent last year with ex-wife Eva Longoria.

Karina Smirnoff & Petra Nemcova Host A ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Afterparty

I wonder where all of the other stars are?

Karina Smirnoff, Dmitry Chaplin and Petra Nemcova hosted their very own ‘Dancing with the Stars’ after party at The Abbey in Los Angeles las night. Although many celebs attended such as Melissa Molinaro, Chelsea Kane, Stephen Colletti and Chelsea Hightower, noticeably missing were the current DWTS contestants.

Either that or the others came in later and the photographers didn’t get a chance to snap their photo. Strange.

Regardless, looks like all those in attendance had a pretty great time!

Why Did DWTS Karina Smirnoff Do Playboy?

‘Dancing with the Stars’ pro Karina Smirnoff isn’t grimacing here because of her ‘Playboy’ spread: she’s trying to back out of a tight parking space. Having the paparazzi photograph her probably didn’t help.

But did you hear about Karina posing for ‘Playboy’? She said she likes to “push things to the limit.” And Hugh Hefner called her pictorial “unforgettable.” I’m guessing her fiance didn’t mind, either.

The 2010 American Music Awards Afterparty Hosted By Rolling Stones

Some of our favorite celebrities came out to The 2010 American Music Awards after-party hosted by Rolling Stones last night. Kelly Osbourne, Tila Tequila, Christina Milian, Katy Perry, Russell Brand, Mena Suvari, Karina Smirnoff, Ke$ha (KESHA), and Avril Lavigne – just to name a few.

What do you think about Kelly Osbourne’s hair? I love the layered look, but did her stylist give her too much volume?

Ke$ha was being Ke$ha – the singer got rid of her VHS tape dress and made a quick change into a purple feathered coat and an awkward wig. I’m sure it was exactly what she was looking for.

Click on the thumbnails to see the rest of the pictures – Tila Tequilla certainly made a statement with her LOW cut dress… and that statement was ‘LOOK AT ME’!!!!

DWTS’ Karina Smirnoff Is Engaged

‘Dancing with the Stars’ pro Karina Smirnoff had a big announcement this weekend: she’s engaged! Here she is showing off her ring at Tao Las Vegas. Check out that rock. Karina is engaged to baseball player Brad Penny.

“He got down on one knee and he opened the box and I said, ‘Thank you’, said Smirnoff of Penny’s Oct. 4 proposal.

Brad couldn’t make it to Vegas this past weekend, but it sounds like he knows how to make it up to her:

The strapping pitcher… sent her a hand-written note in a fortune cookie apologizing for his absence—complete with a stunning Everlon diamond necklace! “I’m marrying a Southern Gentleman,” said Smirnoff, who accepted her fiancé’s proposal following a year-long courtship.

Jewelry has a way of making things better, doesn’t it? 😉

Congratulations to the couple!

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian On The Red Carpet

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, along with Karina Smirnoff, Brittny Gastineau and LaLa Vasquez celebrated Los Angeles Confidential’s Fall Fashion Issue at the London West Hollywood Hotel. I wonder if one of the Kardashian girls was on the cover.

Kim and Kourtney both look UNBELIEVABLE. All the Kardashian ladies are stunning. Kim’s wearing some crazy shoes but I love them! I love the whole outfit. Her makeup is a bit softer than usual too. What do you think about it? And Kourtney’s shoes don’t look as out there on first glance, but if you check out the thumbnail, they actually have neon yellow soles. I wonder who makes them — will yellow be the next thing like Louboutin red?

Alessandra Ambrosio, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Lowndes and Karina Smirnoff were photographed at WILDFOX’s Fall 2010 Collection “It’s Witchcraft” celebration party at 1OAK in NYC.

They enjoyed the evening’s festivities which featured magicians, a Zoltar machine, candy stations and a kissing wall.

Lindsay’s been a fan of WILDFOX for some time now. Remember the vampire bag?

What do you think of the outfits? I think they all look incredible. I love Karina’s blouse!
