“Dancing With the Stars” fans were all over host Tyra Banks’ fashions for week 2, comparing her to “Jurassic Park” and “Zoolander.” There was also a vocal contingent of fans who actually loved her looks this week and some who think she’s just trolling everyone at this point.
Here’s what commenters had to say:
The ‘Jurassic Park’ Comparison Was Everywhere
When Banks kicked off the second half of the September 27 episode, she was wearing a huge maroon dress with flared-out sleeves that haloed around her and fans instantly said she looked like a dinosaur from “Jurassic Park.”
“TYRA!!!! Bestie. Who is dressing you??? Why do you look like the dinosaur from Jurassic Park?? #DWTS @JurassicWorld,” wrote one fan.
“Tyra Banks out here looking like the little dinosaur from ‘Jurassic Park,'” wrote another.
“Tyra Banks looking like she just killed Newman in ‘Jurassic Park,'” wrote another.
And hat tip to the fan who knew the dinosaur’s actual name (it’s Dilophosaurus).
One fan went the “bowtie pasta” route:
The First Outfit Was Compared to ‘Zoolander’ & Red Plastic Bags
The red shiny outfit that Banks started the show in was compared to “Zoolander” by one fan who wrote, “Ok, what the hell is Tyra wearing this week on #DWTS??? Do they just give her the ugliest outfits so she won’t upstage everyone? … Oh s***! I just realized, she is wearing Mugatu’s Der-e-lict fashion line! #Zoolander.”
Another fan called it the “red plastics bags from Chinatown.”
“Whoever dresses Tyra for the show must hate her. That’s the only plausible explanation for these outfit choices,” wrote one viewer.
“We need to petition ABC to get Tyra a new glam squad,” said another.
“I don’t know about you but I’ve been disappointed with Tyra’s outfits, hair & makeup these past two weeks. As a former supermodel its not giving what its suppose to give sis,” wrote a third.
Some Fans Loved the Looks This Week
“Tyra banks look so much better [this] week,” wrote one fan.
“At least Tyra is wearing something that doesn’t make her look like a moron tonight,” wrote another.
“Tyra is truly gorgeous and has an incredible body,” wrote a third.
And finally, one fan just wants everyone to stop complaining, writing, “Y’all still talking about Tyra? She’s not going anywhere, get over it. Y’all said y’all was going to stop watching so stop watching instead of complaining every week.”
Several fans also think that Tyra and her stylists are just trolling fans at this point. One wrote, “Ok Tyra’s stylist is just trolling us now,” and another added, “Tyra is just trolling us at this point with that dress.”
But hey, as far as hosting went, Banks did a fine job on the September 27 episode, with no major flubs or mistakes, and she opened the show with her signature fiery catwalk of which one fan wrote, “@tyrabanks is definitely the perfect host for this show! Still got that cat walk and love her outfits!!!”
