In a new post shared to her Instagram page, the 46-year-old model and TV host showed off the outfit she wore last week for the opening of the ABC celebrity ballroom competition — a black and gold dress that was inspired by the show’s blinged-out mirrorball trophy. Her long hair was worn down and in waves as she posed for the snap with a fierce look on her face and her hands on her hips.
In the caption to the pic, which can be seen below, the DWTS star and executive producer thanked her glam team for making the “glam dream.” Tyra also revealed that transforming her “takes hours” and that her stylist and hair and makeup team work hard to make the “magic” happen.
While she was posing in last Tuesday’s outfit for the new post, Tyra teased her next look for Week 3 of the competition.

Big thanks to the glam team that makes the glam dream. Transforming me takes hours and they work hard to make the magic happen. This is the look from last week @dancingabc. Tonight it’s @disney night and they are bringing the ultimate fantasy! Can’t wait for you to see! And the dances are all magical! See you tonight at 8/7 central on ABC, baby! ???????? ????: @valentefrazierartistry ????????♀️: @kimblehaircare ????: @brendnalexander
In the comments section to the post, fans told Tyra they are ready for her next high-fashion ensemble, and some offered guesses as to what her fantasy look will be during a week when the celebrity dancers will be dressed as everyone from Moana to Cinderella.
“You got this [Tyra banks] you’re the STAR so embrace and be fierce girl,” one supporter wrote.
“I really hope you dress as a Disney princess or villain! Tiana, Ariel, or Maleficent are my top guesses!” another user added.
In comments to a second Instagram photo of last Tuesday’s look, seen here, a third fan predicted, “I have a feeling you are going to wear something white, like a white dress.”
“You are so striking in these outfits like dang girl,” another person remarked.
Ahead of the live show, Tyra also boasted about the surge in ratings for Dancing with the Stars since she took over as host of the celebrity ballroom series earlier this month after Tom Bergeron’s 29 seasons at the helm.
“The competition, the massive ratings (and the outfits!) are turning up!!” she told fans.⠀
There is no denying that the fashion game has been ramped up since the America’s Next Top Model alum joined the series. The first two weeks of Dancing with the Stars featured Tyra entering the ballroom catwalk-style — her premiere night red ballgown was jaw-dropping — and she changed into a second ensemble early on in the show.
