Photo Gallery: It’s Azure Pool time for DWTS couple Maks & Karina
The engagement ring sparkled and glistened as brightly as the holiday fireworks! Dancing With the Stars beauty Karina Smirnoff flashed the ring and her smiles when her fiance and co-star Maksim Chmerkovskiy and she celebrated the Fourth of July at the luxury and chic Azure Pool at the Palazzo.
No confirmation about a Las Vegas or Hollywood wedding this year, but the couple will marry this fall. Maks, who was the choreographer for the newest routines of Steve Wynn’s Le Reve spectacular at the Wynn, has said he’d secretly been Karina’s admirer for many years but never had enough courage to invite her out until this year, and since then it’s been a whirlwind romance. Karina previously dated DWTS contestant Mario Lopez.
Karina and Maks enjoyed massage spa services at Canyon Ranch Spa Club and the poolside lunch served in their VIP cabana -- one of 41 dotted there -- by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck’s Solar. During the afternoon pool events, they watched a fashion show with beautiful models and relaxed under the sun to music from a DJ.
