Tyra Banks - MET Costume Institute Gala 2009

Tyra Banks dons a crazy bun of hair at the “Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion” Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

The 35-year-old talk show host accompanied designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka to the swank event. Tyra wore a Badgley Mischka Couture metallic black strapless fishtail gown. She accessorized her look with BM jet chandelier earrings, BM glass stone, crystal cuff and BM Couture shoes.

    That bun needs a couple of little stuffed finches to finish off the look! Tres WA la!

    But I do like the dress. :)

  • [~☆Fug Face Man!ston☆~]

    hahahahahahahahahaHahahahahahahahahaha..

  • jill

    she should be ashamed

  • Ellen

    Anatol of Paris must have designed her bun! Two white doves in a little gold cage would also do in a jiffy! Hehehe!

  • Whisper

    I didn’t know wearing cinnamon buns on your head was in fashion, lol!

  • kramer

    Did Tyra just shave her head?

  • Saudia

    uhm what? lol wow that is a horrible hair don’t! love the dress but come on Tyra

  • dan

    Tyra, you are always fab!

  • SOLOSTUFF

    she looks good for age, great skin….but I agree that the hair needs some effort put into it!

  • Ellen

    @ 6

    That’s what I’m wondering too?! Hehehe! The bun would not be so bad if her head did not look buzzed off under it.

  • erinrae

    A big smile would have gone a LONG way. She looks like she is about to attack someone. She doesn’t even look happy that she is wearing that thing.

  • Shar

    Everytime I see Tyranasarus Banks, only 1 word comes to mind, FIERCE! But shiit should really be the word when it comes to how she look right here.

  • emma.

    She’s gorgeous. The hair.. she should of let it down in some curls and it would have looked fab with that dress!

  • Ellen

    *hair

    LOL

    At solostuff, “good for age”…WTH??? She very beautiful for any age! But, I’m still trying to figure out what happened on top of her head! hehehe!

  • tiffany

    who took a sh*it on tyra’s head?…thats just wrong.

  • Ellen

    ” She doesn’t even look happy that she is wearing that thing.”

    That because it’s wearing her!

    She’s got one of Princess Leia’s buns stuck to her forehead! *points and laughs*

  • mary

    it’s like she went back in time.
    she says stuff on ANTM about how models should know fashion..
    YEAH, RIGHT

  • mertz

    okay so despite the crasy tyra she was bang on with this badgley mischka dress. i think what i really like (although the dress remindes me of prom) is the colour and the reverse frills. the look is on point but she could have totally done someth

  • mertz

    something with the hair…but then that would be the usual tyra we’ve seen before. the hair style is a little bit strong for the dress, but i think the braid chapeau works. i mean hair is the new accessory. lady gaga has done it with the hair bow tie, fergie did braid earphones…i think it can work. it’s crazy but it can fit a style.

  • mochakiss

    What a d@mn mess, looks like an elephant took a shit on her head!

  • celebrityobsessed.

    The dress is HOT! The hair… not so much.

  • Si

    Very funny . Look at the Bruce Willis face, It seems that he saw the Devil.
    I honestly don’t understand her very well: She always says that her hair is natural,but now seems not. Very Ugly Tyra.

  • http://madonna.com MADONNA

    LOL

  • jamie

    WHY is it that in every big event she looks like a retard.

  • Ellen

    She could write a book called “Fun With Buns!”

    And it could give all kinds of useful things to do with her bun chapeau. For instance…

    1. Nut bowl. just place it upside down on your coffee table and fill with nuts for guests for a smart looking treat!

    2. Small dog water dish for those outings in Central Park; the dog will look tres chick sipping from a hair hat.

    3. Diaphragm. Well, you never know when you are going to need sexual protection and if you can’t get to a store to buy condoms and you left your diaphragm at home then just insert this baby in and get to boggying!

  • Ellen

    Well, all joking aside so far the only passably decent dresses are hers, Blake Lively and Jessica Biel’s. But even they are ‘generic’ looking event dresses. The rest looks like bad prom dresses especially Rachel Bilson’s. Good god, the eighties called and they want their overly rouched awful green mini back… I guess it’s just really hard to scare up a special gown or something unless it’s for the Oscar’s.

  • Lilly

    It’s a Pretzel??

    Her hair: yuk!!

  • ladyj19

    Tyra darling, I love you!!! I have ur picture on my bedroom door. People say we look alike. But never would I wear my hair like that!!! Now the gown, YES, YES, YES!!!! Darling give it up, hand it over.

  • mmm

    u guys need to watch this video and make a comment tell me if u like it or not. please we need yalll help.

  • omg

    Why would you do this to yourself and then allow yourself to be photographed?????

  • myobservation

    horrible on all levels…tyra has a huge ego, fiercest woman alive in her own mind..I truly can not stand this woman..she’s painful to watch and listen to.

  • Angela

    there is a pile of shit on her head, wtf?

  • jaye

    That hair style looks ridiculous. She just slapped a piece of fake hair on top of her head, what was she thinking?

  • TWPUMPKIN

    Looks like someone crapped on her head! She is beautiful still!

  • marmalade

    Anything is better than the ton of hair she usually carry around
    on her head, I hate wigs and weaves with a passion.
    WTS she (is) into high fashion, it (is) part of her business, so work it
    Tyra it’s your $$$$ Vogue It.

  • lovenpeace93

    omg….i like her dress except her hair style……she is really pretty but wat is wit the hair…im sorry tyra …i really like her fashion but try a different hair style… :}

  • http://AOL sUSAN

    OMG…did she look in the mirror at her hair before she stepped out in public. She is sooooo gorgeous, but that hair is absolutely awful!

  • Tdani

    I LOVE this look; especially the dress! Her hair was inspired looks like by Dita Von Teese

  • sandra

    Why would you do this to yourself and then allow yourself to be photographed????

    Short answer: Being surrounded by ‘yes men’. LOL See, I’m sure all her “people” told her she looked just glamtastic!

    That is why my nasty but honest aunt will have to give me the thumbs up via a jpeg before I would ever even think about hitting the red carpet! HAHAHA!

    It’s a hair Frisbeeeeeee!!! Weeeeee!!!

    “Fun With Buns”

    4. Bun as matchmaker: Single gals could throw it in Central Park and ten dogs would chase after it and then she could maybe meet a nice single boy in all the confusion! :)

  • Bun bashing

    I’ll be back.

    I’m not done with this bun! hehehe!

  • cosi

    poor thing just doesn’t get it; the hair, and why BM? BM is SO fussy and overdone.
