Tyra Banks in Diane von Furstenberg at “The Wendy Williams Show”

This week supermodel and mogul Tyra Banks stopped by “The Wendy Williams Show” and opened up about her (very private) relationship with handsome and super wealthy boyfriend John Utendahl, her thoughts on marriage and kids, and her love of fast food! She wore Diane von Furstenberg’s $365 Reara Two-Tone Dress inspired by the Spring 2011 collection.  The coral and purple color-block dress features an exaggerated cowl neckline, cap sleeves, tulip skirt, and a self-tie waist.

Hmm, I’m such a fan of this gorgeous DVF dress yet something about the way the dress falls on Tyra’s slim frame doesn’t sit comfortably with me. It seems slightly loose and a bit ill-fitting, no?  However, I imagine that’s the look she was going for so if she likes it, I love it.

The dress may look familiar to us because it was worn back in June by singer and X-Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger at the X-Factor auditions in Miami. Nicole wore a slightly sexier custom version of the look, that she styled with light brown brush suede boots, stacked gold bangles, and the Gucci adjustable tassel belt.

A pretty and pregnant Jessica Alba attended the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards also wearing a custom maternity version of the Diane von Furstenberg dress. She accessorized with Fallon jewels, sparkly embellished Casadei peep toe pumps, and a Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit Cotte de Maille clutch.
