Based on her interview with Lauren Zima of ET, she said, “I think it was the third or fourth episode, I walk out and my hand is on my back and I was holding my dress together. It was not zipped up! And I did not have on any of my jewelry.”
She added, “Then, you’ll notice, a couple of acts later my hand is down, I’m zipped up and I have on jewelry.”
Bank’s incredible sense of style and fashion are instrumental in helping her host the star-studded TV show. This is the reason why she set some rules on the kind of gowns she’ll wear throughout the DWTS season.
She explained, “There’s certain rules that I have. You have to play to your strengths, so I play to making sure that the waist is snatched — because, if it’s not, I’m well-endowed naturally and it can look a little bit like a mumu. I have very broad shoulders and sometimes the dress doesn’t really cover the shoulder… so it’s got to be wide enough up here.”
She added, “Can’t have satin on the boobies, on the tummy or on the booty.”
“Satin on my booty, shows cellulite, satin on my boobies on TV makes the size they already are ten times bigger,” Banks said. “So there’s all these [things to remember], like a checklist.”
Banks also talked about the refits and redesigns her outfits had to go through because people are expecting much from her since she was once a runway and fashion model.
She shared, “Sometimes I put something on and I’m like, ‘Okay, they obviously don’t know I got a booty,’ cause it’s something like off the runway. Yes I used to model, I did fashion shows, fashion weeks, all across the globe — but I don’t have that body anymore. But for some reason designers just think, ‘Oh she was a model, let’s give her this size four.’ Honey can you add a ten to that?”
“What happens is, when you have a really good stylist, they like know how to do all the tips and tricks and so do I. So you’re like, ‘Do I really need to lose weight? My waist in snatched right now, I think I’m fine!'”
The TV personality has always been open about her body and she exudes confidence regardless of her weigh.
Banks said, “I think that has to do with my mom. Just growing up with her positivity. You know my mom doesn’t even dye her hair, Just being raised with that has not made me not super concerned. Also, for me, I just have gone up and down in weight my entire career… So I’m like, ‘You just never know what Tyra you’re going to get!'”
