Tyra Banks Goes Insane for the Little Black Dress (VIDEO)
Joined by the fashionably loud Vogue Editor-at-Large Andre Leon Talley, the two prove that the LBD — that they refer to as the “dress of a lifetime” — even works when you’re holed up in a “haute mental institution.” What’s tip No. 1 to finding the right black dress?
According to Tyra and Andre, “Invest in a well-made LBD, you’ll wear it forever.” The super-styled stars also match the LBD with the right body type, in addition to showing how to evolve the dress from corporate casual to sexy chic.
However, there are some “Little Black Don’ts” that even the America’s Next Top Model host herself has fell victim to. Tyra pulls out a picture of herself at an awards show in the 90s where all she had on was what looked like a black bikini top and a floor-length skirt,
“I had a black dress moment, Andre, that was one of the biggest fashion don’ts of my entire life. It was the mid-90s, I felt hot, sexy. I thought my abs were doing good. … [But it was] dreckitude.”
Tyra’s new word, dreckitude, means “the lowest point in the lowest ebb. The lowest of the lows.”
