Alright so, it’s not quite the revealing moment it could’ve been (seeing as though Julianne Hough is wearing a bikini) but it still took her quite by surprise.
The beautiful blonde was shocked to discover that her pretty pink sundress flew up suddenly after being hit by a strong gust of Caribbean wind.
The Flashdance star, then did a flashing dance, to ensure the pink skirt behaved itself.

Julianne recently revealed the secret to keeping she and Ryan’s 18-month relationship alive.
‘It’s a hard thing to do, especially when you’re so caught up in your work and bettering yourself,’ she told Parade last year. ‘It does get hard because you’re so focused on that, but I think at the end of the day you have to find a balance with what’s really important.’
She also revealed that the couple are really competitive: ”Ryan and I are very alike,’ she said. ‘When we work out with a trainer, we’ll die before we stop, like, to the point where we can’t breathe.’

‘I do something activity-based, like a hike or going to the beach or heading to the lake and going wakeboarding,’ she said.
