As a dancer (and two-time champion!) on Dancing with the Stars, Julianne Hough knows how important it is to stay in shape and lead an active lifestyle year-round. Given that the paparazzi magnet spends a good chunk of her life in workout clothes, she also knows how important it is to have fitness apparel that is as functional as it is fashionable. Fittingly, she teamed up with yoga and dance-inspired activewear/athleisure line MPG to design a special collection. In between promos for her new MPG line and working on the latest season of Dancing with the Stars, we caught up with the actress and dancer to ask her our quickfire questions.
