Cheryl Burke and Gilles Marini, who has his shirt off

Gilles Marini: For this Dancing With The Stars contender, it's about retaining your dignity and never, ever playing to the lowest common denominator. ABC hide caption

Today's Entirely Real Photo comes from last night's episode of Dancing With The Stars, where actor Gilles Marini began his paso doble — that would be the dance of the bullfighter, for those of you who aren't cultured enough to watch celebrity dance competitions — wearing the best bullfighting costume he could think of. Perhaps the storyline is of a passionate woman who vows to her lover she will wear enough shirt for both of them.

(Because honestly, it is summer where his chest is, but for partner Cheryl Burke, it is winter.)

If you are wondering who Gilles Marini is, he was the sexy neighbor Samantha saw naked in the summer movie version of Sex And The City. Clothing allergy, perhaps? Sensitive to synthetic fibers?
