What takes 150 hours to make, has 10,000 crystals, weighs two lbs. and will be worn by one of Hollywood’s bubbliest blondes? No, it’s not a riddle –- it’s the custom Swarovski red dress and heart-themed necklace that Julianne Hough will be modeling in Wednesday’s Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection Fashion Show. While Hough told PEOPLE at her recent fitting at the N.Y.C. Swarovski showroom that her necklace “feels light on”, she does admit to just the slightest bit of jitters at walking in the star-studded show (fellow models include Audrina Patridge and Giuliana Rancic). “This is my first time walking a catwalk in a runway show. I’m a little nervous but I think I can do it.” Hough jokes that it’s different than her years on Dancing with the Stars because “you have to walk. As long as I’m jumping around, moving my hips, I’m good, but walking in a straight line might be a little difficult.” At least she loves what she’s wearing on the catwalk, calling the shimmering Swarovski crystal necklace and matching satin gown designed by Swarovski Creative Director Nathalie Colin “pretty unbelievable.” But it was the cause behind Red Dress Heart Truth (hearth health for women) and the partnership with Swarovski that drew the Footloose star in. Besides, Hough laughs, “It makes sense. They’re really glitzy and glam-y, and so am I.” Shop for pieces from Swarovski’s Heart Truth collection, inspired by Julianne’s couture piece, on swarovski.com! –Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

I like The PHOTOS, very nice! Julianne Moore looks great on The March issue of InStyle Magazine, and it’s nice that she feels her most Sexy when she’s not around her Children! I’m so thrilled to hear that Simon Cowell will be a Judge on The X-Factor, good luck!

Swarovski could have done so much better with such a beautiful model! Disappointing show.

Julianne is a WOMEN and very BEAUTIFUL…Some people just don’t know BEAUTIFUL…The dress looks BEAUTIFUL and is PERFECT on her…some people must be jealous…If someone don’t have something nice to say should keep it to their self..Go Julianne!!!!you know what looks good..what ever you wear looks BEAUTIFUL on you..Ryan is a LUCKY and HAPPY man I know..

Oh you people are just jealous that you don’t have the body to wear this. Julianne is beautiful in anything and there is absolutely nothing wrong with her body. The dress is okay and the necklace not so much but maybe it looks better in person when the sparkle is added. I just can’t imagine Nicole Kidman in this dress. She’s washed out enough as it is and this would make her look like a ghost for sure. I love Julianne and she would look good in a potato sack. Why do you feel the need to bash everyone on these comment pages? Why don’t you all aim for a kinder, gentler world? It would be a much nicer place.

The dress is pretty, but I would be embarrassed to lug that thing around my neck!
