Fashion Moves: So You Think You Can Dance Episode 15

The fashionable So You Think You Can Dance crew looked great once again. I'm happy to see Cat Deeley pulling her hair back, so chic. Travis and Nigel always look dapper and Paula Abdul may have us all feeling green with envy in a sexy beaded dress. The best style goes to tWitch this week and that's saying a lot because I'm not a big fan of his looks. But this week, no one, not even I, can argue at how fresh he looked. From the John Varvatos sweater to the Baron Hats hat and down to the kicks, tWitch nailed it head-to-toe!

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE airs Mondays at 8/7c on FOX with host Cat Deeley, judges Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo, and mentors Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss and Travis Wall.

Tune-in Monday, September 14th for the finale and to see which one of the Top 4 street and stage finalists will be crowned America’s favorite dancer.
