Tyra Banks' wardrobe on Dancing With the Stars has been getting a lot of attention. She wore a burgundy ensemble during Monday night's episode that featured large wings. The former supermodel says there's a special meaning behind the look. In a recent chat with E!'s Daily Pop, Banks says it resembles her time as a Victoria's Secret angel.
"There's a base of that dress. It looks like a normal, beautiful dress from the '90s," she said of the viral look. "Then I go on the stage in front of the audience and everybody, and I put on the wing thing. And everybody was like, 'Oh!' because they thought the first thing was the normal dress. I call it Victoria's Secret wangs. It's not wings. It's got an A. That's how we did it."
Banks, 47, loved the look. It was designed by Julian Mendez Couture and styled by the company's creative directors Natalia Barzilai and Eric Archibald. Banks posted questions about the outfit on her 6.8 million Instagram followers on her page, asking her followers if the ruffles on the gown were 'wings or a fan?'
However, Dancing With the Stars fans were less than impressed. Some compared her look to that of a dinosaur. Others were simply confused.
