Tyra Banks never holds back on the red carpet — over-the-top gowns with dramatic hair and makeup have become the daytime diva’s signature look. But even knowing that, Tyra’s gown at the 34th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards Show last Friday made us look twice. Not only did the custom-made Roberto Cavalli gown require handlers to help Tyra walk down the red carpet, but we cannot figure out how she sat down in it! When you look as good in a bikini as Tyra, why cover up with so many poufy layers of fabric? Tell us: What do you tlhink of Tyra’s gown? Love it or hate it?

I love a little less of that reynolds rap look and it would have been better but the color is a mazing on her complexion!

Babydoll on

I think she looks like a pumpkin in this dress. I love tyra banks but this is not flattering. The top reminds me of Kiera Knightly’s dress.

Manal on

Tyra always looks gorgeous, but this dress isnt very flattering.

Diana on

Love it!!!Sweet!She looks so beautiful!

LuLu on

you have gots’ to give this girl credit for wearing such an U-G-L-Y Dress

nicole on

I think it’s terribly tacky.

Lucy on

I love tyra shes my idol but her skin is the same color as her dress so it didnt make her stand out just blend in.


i think its very chic and i give credit for the risk but its too over the top it would be gorgeous if it was smaller

Natasha on

Seriously Tyra?

Hope not..

stephanie on

oh now that you mention it, it does look similar to Kiera’s! Sad to say the rest looks like tin foil

Elizabeth on

its okay.she look so nice in that color!!!

cd on

Love the dress! It is modern day princess at the ball.

Daisy on

Yuck. Tyra is way too beautiful to be wearing that nonsense!

CCS on

The color is amazing. It is perfect for the awards but nothing else

Miranda on

I don’t don’t it at all! Its not a good color for her, and I don’t like how it is two-toned, meaning it has two different tones. It looks likes a barbie doll I once had, come on Tyra, you can do better than that! Your beautiful!

Lee on

I think Tyra can work anything. She looks fabulous

Nicole on

I personally wouldn’t wear it, but I’m not one to talk, I wear things just to make people go “I CAN’T BELIEVE SHES WEARING THAT!” So Im all about being different and expressing her own unique fashion sense and she OWNS that color, it looks amazing on her!

alia on

one question: WTF was she thinking?!?

Aki on

I love her and her character so much. bet less this dress. Her new bangs looks fresh, thogh.

Christine on

I’m not sure about that dress… but I know the chunky bangs don’t look good imo

Louisa on

I reckon Tyra looks absolutely like a royal princess from one of the African tribes. She is absolutely gorgeous and stunning and her dress is so “out of this world” and not to mention her skin tone!!! I would just go to extremes to have that striking bronze complexion!.

FashionistaFranny on

Love Tyra, hate the gown. =/

Posh on

The dress was on the puffy side but it fits her I personally would have cut it at the knee

Anna on

It looks like she crumpled it up into a ball, stuffed it in her suitcase, and then pulled it out later and just said, ‘Okay, I’m ready to go!’ They is a way to make wrinking look fashionable. This just looks like something she pulled out of the dumpster.

Canadian, eh? on

She looks like a bronze statue.

Dana on

I think that maybe if the bottom half of the dress was toned down (less layers, not so poufy, etc.) I would love it. As it is right now, I’m kinda on the fence.

Lauren on

i guess dat it iz ok cuz like the colors blend in well (with da skin) but da bottom of da dress just blew-it!!! :p

Natalia on

I absolutely love it. She looks like she stepped out from back in the Victorian times. Very chic and different!

KJ on

Hated it!

Melissa on

I Love Tyra’s dress! I would wear it in a second!

Anonymous on

she was prave to trie it if you ask me,but you know i say if she like it more power to her

Nikki on

i usually love what tyra wears but this dress takes too much away from her natural beauty. it kind of looks like someone’s bad idea of a prom dress.

kristina on


T. Strong on

Hate IT!!! Tyra is such a diva and this dress is just not.

Adrien on

I think Tyra looks really nice…..she always looks great. !!!

Froggy on

Ewww… That’s hella ugly!!

Froggy on

I would never wear that ugly dress! That dress made Tyra looks ugly

Melanie Gail on

LOVE the dress…i just wish she would have done her hair differently…maybe the classic Tyra curls?! idk. haha. either way, she can do whatever the hell she wants and shes a Barbie (and actually shes played one before too!)

Julia on

I wouldn’t wear something like that but it looks great on Tyra.

Julia on

i wou7ldn’t wear it but tyra looks great

aubrey on

I don’t like it, it almost feels like she is trying to ghetto-fie a dress that I can tell is leaning toward a jumbled completely wrong couture look, but its not even pretty…or modern! it looks like it was made in a dressing room at T J MAX and the fabric was on sell so Tyra thought “ooh, shiny,this is like so dayamn coo!” so her mom attempted to make it happen with a stapler and a hot glue gun.

I actually feel bad for the girl, can you imagine how many valet outfits she’s had to wear to these kind of events, so she can sneak into all the parties no one invites her to?

Sandra on

She looks like a little christmas ornament. I want to hang her on my tree.

Alex on

She looks good in anything that she wears so this dress is no exeption!

nanat on

the dress looks ugly(specially the colour n maybe the fabric)and her hair looks undone.. a big no no

sammy on

i think tyra looks awesomw but but not soo thrilled about the dresss she is wearing …..!!!

Jenna on

I hate it. Tyra has just gotton tooo yuckkkkkk

trinity on

ok i love tyra but this makes her look like shes rapped up in orange tinfoil

Katie on

hideous. extremely tasteless and tacky.

Heather on

adore the color.
not a fan of the poofyness
like the hairstyle;; not the bangs.
she still looks beautiful

ALY on

MISS!!! I love Tyra but this looks like she belongs on the top of a Christmas Tree, but even I wouldn’t want this on my tree.

Tyler on

I like the waste and higher part but below her waste needs to be burned

phija on

love it
