I am planning to go with a friend to a show taping of Dancing With the Stars... and I had been asking her about the dress code. Now I always get confused about dress codes because one person's 'elegant and tasteful' may not look at all like another person's 'elegant and tasteful' if you get what I mean. I am not really a dresser, I was never so happy as to stop having to wear suits and dresses when my former employer relaxed the dress code and allowed jeans and tshirts every day. This isn't to say I don't OWN skirts and dresses and they look lovely, I just am very uncomfortable dressed up. I am not a formal person and I don't purposely like attracting attention that being dressed up attracts. I also spend a lot of time with children. Children and dressy clothes don't uh.. mix well. The exception would be black tie, such as what you wear to a wedding, a charity ball, a new year's eve party, or... a hot date . So anyway, some of you know that I bought a little black dress some weeks ago. I wore it out on a hot date recently. My friend suggested I wear it tomorrow. Do you think you'd wear something that formal to a show taping? I looked on youtube to try and gauge what people in the front row were wearing... it was hard to see. I do know that I'll feel good in the dress, but we'll also be two young looking women out in hollywood alone. LOL! What would you wear? Share your perfect outfit with me!

I am an avid veiwer of the show, and from what i have been able to tell, from watching the show, the shots they show of the audience, the little bits where they interveiw random (non-famous) audience members at the show and ask them what they thing, it certainly seems like they are all dressing pretty formally. like something you would wear to a "black tie" event....i would say your best bet would be something along the lines of a cocktail dress or something. Maybe you can even use it as an excuse to go out and buy yourself something new?!? That is so cool that you get to go see the show live. I would LOVE to be able to do that!!

Its on the website were you get the tickets you should read it before you go because they are strict about it if you have the wrong kind of clothes or the worng colors (some shows want dark some ask for light almost all wont let you wear large logos on shirts) they will seat you in the very back they seat you according to how you look and how they think you will be on camera.

Hey mommyboo! Well! Well! Well! How did you score such hot tickets? And you're going to Hollywood! I have no idea what people where in that audience! I guess mostly because I very rarely watch the show and if I do it's for a hot second! And I am only checking out the dancers!lol I don't know about this lil' black dress you bought (how did I miss that discussion pray tell?) and your hot date, but I do think that you might be just a tad overdressed for the audience, that is unless you are hoping that one of the adorable male dancers loses his partners from some serious injury (which I've seen happen) and swopes into the audience and sweeps you off your feet for a quick dance number!And if by chance this does happen will you lets us all know when this particular show is going to air? Would love to see it!

I think a little black dress would be perfect for a taping of dancing with the stars. if i was going to a taping of this show i would put on my best little black dress. or I would wear a really sweet top with a nice black pencil skirt.

Listen, you feel good in that dress and therefore it gives you confidence. A black dress is so appropriate so wear it and have a great time.

That black dress will fit the occasion perfectly. You can wear it for almost any occasion. It's not too formal nor too plain. Just add a little more accessories and you'll be fine. Elegant and tasteful are subjective matters. What seem right to others, don't necessary mean right for you.
