‘Rock of Ages’ Star Julianne Hough Is Red Hot in a Skimpy Bikini (PHOTOS)

Julianne's Best Bikinis
Julianne Hough knows how to rock a two piece!
North Carolina just got a little hotter thanks to Julianne Hough’s teeny bikini.

On Sunday, the Rock of Ages star took her dogs to the beach at the Tar Heel State in nothing but a red hot two piece.

With dark shades and her signature blonde locks a little bit shorter, Hough, 23, was all smiles as she splashed about in the surf with her pooches.

Why was this Hollywood hottie hanging out by the east coast?

She was in town to visit her family. She tweeted:

However, one Hough that was missing was none other than her brother, Dancing With the Stars pro Derek, who was hitting the beach elsewhere. Over the weekend, Derek was spotted enjoying the sun and surf with Extra host Maria Menounos at a local beach in Malibu, Calif. The duo were also joined by NFL player Terrell Owens as they played beach tennis in the sand.
