WERQ: Tyra Banks in Alexander McQueen

Posted on August 01, 2012

Say what you will about Miss Tyra (God knows we have), but the lady can still pull herself together and look pretty amazing, even in a simple little black dress.

 

Tyra Banks attends the 2012 TCA Summer Tour – CBS, Showtime and The CW Party in a little black dress paired with Alexander McQueen pumps.

See, lady stars who are not in these pictures? See what Miss Tyra has done here? She took a very simple dress that looks fantastic on her, chose some absolutely perfect accessories to bring the look together, and made sure that there were one or two touches (the print on the clutch, the skulls on the shoes) that elevate the look by bringing some texture, pattern and edge to it. And finally, Miss Tyra made sure a chunk of her prep time was spent in a chair getting her hair and makeup done by people who know how to do her hair and makeup. Result? Just about perfect. No yoga hair, no bland beige shoes, nothing that doesn’t fit correctly, nothing that clashes or seems like it belongs with another outfit. Sure, black and gold isn’t exactly revolutionary or tough to pull off, but the point is she made sure the look was integrated, cohesive, and polished. And really, lady stars (and boy stars too) that’s all we’ve ever asked of you.

You WERQ those two decades of experience, girl. SNAPS.

The irony has not escaped us that her mouth is open in every picture, though.
