Julianne Hough was snapped by the paps as she dropped her new boyfriend, Brooks Laich, off at the airport in Los Angeles on February 18, opting for a cute and casual ensemble for her errands. Starting with a relaxed and neutral button up (for two similar options, take a look at Vince's Raglan Top in Sage and Zoa's Rose Skin Zippered Pocket Button Up in Olive), Julianne then slipped into a pair of distressed jeans (like Black Orchid's Black Jewel Mid Rise Jegging in Wave Light) and tan suede booties. Get the look with Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent's Charley Etched Suede Bootie in Cognac. From there, JH added on a pair of colored mirrored sunglasses and a rust colored chapeau, and completed her outfit with a complementary leather tote. Are you feeling Julianne's outfit on this occasion? When asked in the press about her new relationship recently, Julianne (to no surprise) stayed mostly mum... however she did dish just a bit about her new honey! According to JH: "He’s a wonderful guy… I’m very lucky that my friend I shot 'Curve' with, the movie I just did, introduced us." Brooks seems to be just as smitten as she is, as he was recently quoted as saying: "She’s a cool, cool gal and a sweetheart. She's very loving, very giving. She puts a lot of great in the world." Very cute!
Julianne Hough seen on Oct 02 2013 in West Hollywood, CA. Julianne Hough was spotted running errands in West Hollywood on October 2, and looked pretty in her casual autumnal ensemble. Starting with a pair of light wash distressed boyfriend jeans (similar to Wildfox Couture's Marissa Boyfriend Jean in Secret), Julianne then added on a button up in an earthy shade (check out Zoa's edgy Rose Skin Zippered Pocket Button Up in Olive) and a tan cross body bag. From there, she slipped into a pair of suede booties (Sam Edelman's Petty Solid in Putty are super similar) and tied a cream colored sweater (try Acrobat's Hi Low Sweater in Ivory) around her waist. On the accessory front, JH added on a pair of mirrored aviator sunglasses and a rust colored hat, and finished her look off with a simple gold ring on her right hand. What are your thoughts on Julianne's casual street style on this occasion, everyone - are you sold? In other Julianne news, the "Dancing with the Stars" cutie is speaking out about her latest film role in Diablo Cody's Paradise. In the film, Julianne portrays a deeply religious woman named Lamb who suffers severe burns and a subsequent spiritual crisis that sends her to hedonistic Las Vegas. When asked about a scene where she sees her scarred body in the shower, JH says: "That's the scene that's most shocking. Lamb's idea of what the future is supposed to be changes and she steps outside of the box she has been in for 21 years." Sounds very intense, are any of you interested in checking it out?
Julianne Hough seen on Aug 12 2013 in Hollywood, CA. Julianne Hough brought a pop of color with her as she walked the red carpet at the premiere of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, which was held at the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood on August 12. For her outfit, Julianne went with Jenny Packham all the way, and wore a top, pants and clutch from the designer. From there, she finished off her look with a pair of Stuart Weitzman sandals. To get a look inspired by hers here, start with a punchy pair of bottoms - Current/Elliot's Ankle Skinny in Poppy are a denim option in a shade similar to Julianne's. From there, add on an embroidered or patterned top, such as Joie's similar Marelia Blouse in Mushroom/Rose Gold. Gypsy 05's Bahia Double Pocket in D. Peach is a more relaxed, flowy option. From there, add on Abaco's Sparkle Clutch in Bronze, which is neutral enough to go with a variety of looks yet still glam due to the sparkle. What are your thoughts of JH's outfit here... one of her best? In other Julianne news, the beautiful blonde recently supported her pal Nina Dobrev at the party for Nina's "Cosmopolitan" cover of the September issue that was held in LA, and Julianne dished on how the two buds first met. Said Julianne: "We've known the same person, Riawna Capri, who cuts and colors and does our hair. She's like, 'You guys have to meet.' We've just been like joined - connected - at the hip." Ah, gotta love it when your hairstylist uses their social circle to make new friendships!

In other Julianne news, she has kept her dating life pretty mum ever since splitting with Ryan Seacrest back in March, but now she's proclaiming she's in love! It's not what you think, however, as Julianne posted a photo to her Instagram account of her kissing a dolphin at Sea World! According to Wet Paint, "The DWTS fan favorite Instagrammed a pic, looking adorable with a side braid tucked into a bun as she puckered up to Purina. The dolphin even looks like he (or maybe she!) is smiling in the photo. She captioned the pic, “I’m in love!” and so are we. Even though Julianne tricked us by telling everyone she caught the love bug, we’re just glad to see her happy. She doesn’t need a man to do that — apparently just some family time and adorable animals." Cute!
Julianne Hough seen on Apr 09 2013 in Beverly Hills, CA. Julianne Hough was photographed on the red carpet of the British Fashion Council’s International Showcasing Initiative: London Show Rooms event, which was held at the Thompson Hotel in Beverly Hills on April 9. At the event, Julianne learned more about London Show Rooms, which provides a unique opportunity for emerging British designers to promote themselves outside London. Very cool! At the event, JH wore a vibrantly printed Peter Pilotto that she paired with white pointed toe Preen for Aldo heels. To get a similarly printed look, try one of four similar dresses right here on CoutureCandy: Soul Revival's Long Sleeve Marley Dress in Floral Tapestry, Hale Bob's Neutral Dress, Voom by Joy Han's Ruby Shift Dress in Red, or Alexia Admor's Print Short Sleeve Dress in Jungle Floral. What are your thoughts on Julianne's look on this occasion, everyone? At the event, Julianne rocked her shorter blonde locks, which I think definitely flatter her. I think that this shorter, sleek style looks super stylish on Julianne - what do you think, everyone? In other news, the newly-single starlet has reportedly already moved on after her recent split from Ryan Seacrest. Allegedly, she has set her sights on none other than Tom Cruise! A source revealed: "Julianne has been combing through scripts for movie projects that would reunite her with Tom because there was major chemistry between the two on ‘Rock of Ages.' After separating from Ryan, she started planning a way of getting back with Tom for another musical. She believes that she and Tom are destined to be the ultimate Hollywood power couple. Don’t be surprised if they are spotted out together in the very near future." Thoughts?

But what's next for Miss Hough? The Hollywood Reporter reports that she's definitely going to be busy in the coming months! In addition to roles in the upcoming films Rock of Ages and Not Born to Be Gladiators, Julianne is acting in Diablo Cody's directorial debut called Lamb of God. Julianne said of the opportunity: "If it’s something scary, I should probably do it, and it is scary. Sometimes it might not work, but you’ve gotta just go full-force ahead and do it, and take those risks and challenges." I wonder if she has the chops to pull of such a "scary" role?
