    Hough, 27, sparkled in two Kaufmanfranco designs: a halter gown on the red carpet and a column dress onstage.

She didn’t stop at silver, though. The Jules by Julianne Hough MPG Sport Collection designer also rocked the colors of the grand ole flag with a strapless high split dress and a sexy jumpsuit, respectively.
