Julianne Hough Dances in Sharp Heels With John Stamos as Elvis in ‘Viva Las Vegas’ Tribute for ‘Step Into the Movies’

Julianne Hough brought her dance skills to the small screen with John Stamos for her upcoming ABC special “Step Into…The Movies with Derek and Julianne Hough.”

During the dance special, the “Footloose” star partnered with Stamos to re-create a dance scene from 1964’s “Viva Las Vegas,” with Hough channeling Ann-Margret’s role and Stamos as Elvis Presley. The star wore a classic black leotard over sheer black leggings for the occasion, creating a streamlined silhouette. Giving her look a hint of ’60s groove was a bold red sweater. Stamos also dressed the part, wearing a full black leather outfit.

For footwear, Hough opted for a pair of pointed-toe pumps. The style featured triangular toes, as well as black leather uppers. Hough’s footwear was complete with thick heels that totaled 2-3 inches in height, ideal for dancing while remaining balanced.

Pumps like Hough’s are a closet staple, able to bring instant sharpness to ensembles ranging from casual to formal. The most popular styles often feature neutral leather or suede uppers with stiletto heels, as seen in new pairs by L’Agence, Brother Vellies and Sam Edelman. In addition to the actress, stars like Kristen Stewart, Bella Hadid and Kate Middleton have also worn sleek pumps by Christian Louboutin, Burberry and Emmy London in recent weeks.
