Kirstie Alley Hollywood pink dress leggs sandals

Okay, so she didn't actually reveal any secrets to us verbally, but these pictures speak volumes about Kirstie Alley's techniques for a successful performance on Dancing With the Stars ... going barefoot and drinking Kool-Aid!

So THAT'S how she does it!

We spotted Kirstie leaving practice barefoot again yesterday. She Tweeted earlier in the day: "Buying 45 pair of dance shoes... Hoping it's the SHOES and not the F-ing feet!!!" We hope so too, K.

After all, buying some new kicks for the show is the least you can do when producers were insanely kind enough to hook you up with Maxim Chmerkovskiy as a partner!
