We Love Chantel Aguirre

Have you received your January issue of DS yet?

If not, sorry for the spoiler alert, but you've probably figured it out by now: The first cover star of 2012 is Chantel Aguirre, and we completely adore this ballet-trained commercial dancer.

Travis Wall—you know him, you dig him—had tons to say about Chantel during a recent interview. "She's the most professional dancer I know and she's always full-out. She has become my go-to person," he told us. Pretty awesome feedback from one of Hollywood's main men.

We've got plenty of ways for you to learn all about Chantel, who is without a doubt one of the sweetest, kindest, most genuine chicks we've ever met.

  • Read her cover story here.
  • Head over to the DS Facebook page and check out the exclusive outtakes from Chantel's NYC cover shoot.
  • Click here to go behind-the-scenes with Chantel. Watch her dance, listen to her advice and fall in love just like we did.
