Charli D’Amelio Does ‘Dirty Dancing’ Tribute in Flared Pink Skirt and Silver Heels for ‘Step Into the Movies’

Nobody puts Charli D’Amelio in a corner — which the influencer proves in the upcoming ABC special “Step Into…The Movies with Derek and Julianne Hough.”

During the dance special, the TikTok star partnered with Derek Hough to re-create a scene from the 1987 film “Dirty Dancing.” Mimicking Frances “Baby” Houseman’s (Jennifer Grey) iconic dance number with Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), D’Amelio donned a pale pink dress. The sleeveless number featured a flared layered skirt, adding to its subtle but elegant drama.

When it came to footwear, D’Amelio opted for a pair of metallic heeled dance shoes. Featuring heels totaling at least 2 inches in height, the style include shiny silver leather uppers with a strappy silhouette, closed toes and ankle straps. The pair gave D’Amelio’s look a hint of glamour, while remaining versatile so her dance moves with Hough took center stage.
