Monokini: The Hot New Swimsuit Making a Splash All Year Long
"Dancing with the Stars" beauty Karina Smirnoff is sizzling for the camera in Hollywood's hottest new fashion statement straight from designer Ashley Paige.
Now, red hot Paige is taking "Extra" inside her Hollywood boutique and secret lab, where she's already working on hot designs for next summer.
Ashley is currently putting together a new "Girls Gone Wild" line and keeping her reputation as the one-stop shop for celebs like Christina Aguilera and Samaire Armstrong, who sexed up the cover of Stuff in one of her swimsuits.
"I like to make sure that before a suit goes out I have inspected it and that it's perfect," Paige said.
Ashley shuns traditional lycra material and instead offers knit designs that hug your body in all the right places.
"They don't grip you," Karina insisted. "They're not snug like traditional lycra."
"It's very glamorous," Smirnoff added. "My favorite part of this suit is the rear end view, it kind of has like that heart shape."
