Tyra Banks Had a Wardrobe Malfunction During 'DWTS' and You Missed It

From Good Housekeeping

  • Tyra Banks had a wardrobe malfunction on an earlier episode of Dancing With the Stars.

  • Tyra revealed she had to walk onstage without her dress zipped up, and she also had no jewelry on.

Tyra Banks is such a pro at hosting Dancing With the Stars that she's able to roll with whatever punches comes her way. And by "punches," I mean fashion mishaps, because holy cow she's had a lot of 'em!

Of course, there was that accessories problem in which Tyra literally had to hand off her earring to Carrie Ann Inaba during the premiere. But turns out, there were other wardrobe malfunctions, too.

According to Tyra, she had to walk onstage with the back of her dress exposed because she didn't have enough time to get zipped in. "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," she told Entertainment Tonight. "It was not zipped up! And I did not have on any of my jewelry...then, you'll notice, a couple of acts later my hand is down, I'm zipped up, and I have on jewelry."

When there aren't mishaps standing in her way, Tyra knows how to dress, partially thanks to a very impressive set of rules about what to wear while filming.

"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," Tyra said. "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."

Hopefully she won't run into any more wardrobe malfunctions this season!
