  • ali

    the hair looks awful. is it a wig?

  • bella

    Her hair looks ok darker, but I think she should of opted for a better style or a different part. Down the middle does not look good.

  • LuckyL

    Weave is not working, or lace-front rather

  • LuckyL

    And CUT IT OUT WITH THE FACES. B*tch, you have not been high-fashion for a minute!

  • LuckyL

    God, I WANT to like her. I’d rather see Naomi!!!

  • mailey

  • Sally g.

    I have to say I’m so sick of seeing Brooke Shields on every single commerical on TV.

    She would sell dog do do if she received money.

    Suntan lotion, eyelashes, cars, toothpaste, etc. What’s the next commercial Brooke?

    Every time I turn the TV on, I see Brooke hawking something. I’m sick of her and her eyebrows.

  • Adri

    The outfit is ugly, but her body is lookin tight.

  • kate

    Annie Hall called – she wants her shirt and vest back.

    Total 80s throwback.

  • eekomeeter

    Wow, she’s starting to look like a bobblehead…did she lose a truckload of weight?

  • ITalian rocket

    she looks good, she’s hiding The Forehead well.

  • bahama beauty

    while Tyra was speaking the way she fixed her mouth and her facial exprssion she looked a little like ROBIN GIVENS. Don’t really like the dark hair on her.

  • irish girl

    She looks great, especially, considering the tone of the awards. At least she didn’t change into something sheer and go on stage half naked.

  • lakers fan in boston

    she looks horrible
    that outfit just looks terrible on her, makes her look like a tranny
    i dont understand how she use 2 be a model, other than being tall, she’s not special

  • lalaine

    he r hair is messed really looks like it’s an extension… your hairdresser..i think he/she is mad at you!

  • the realist

    Why Tyra? Why? Is she sure she was in fashion? That outfit is awful! It doesn’t fit her proportions and the colors don’t exist. Where is her blond lace front? I’m not saying that a black woman with blond hair is ideal, I’m just saying that this particular lace front looks homemade.

  • 0ngee

    Please report any obscene material you may have seen on the BET Award show.
    For instance, the countless sexual references by Jamie Foxx,
    Lil Wayne singing a highly sexual song infront of adolescent kids on stage
    Countless cuss words that were not caught
    Inappropriate dressing by Beyone singing a religious song

  • Tom

    Please report the obscene nature of the BET award show 2009 to the FCC. The online complaint process takes about 2-3 minutes.

    Tyra is gorgeous, and her body looks amazing, i didnt like the hair much either compared to her other styles she stills looks great, yall bitches really need to stop hating because with all the makeup in the world and plastic surgery, YALL BITCHES STILL COULDNT LOOK HAVE AS GOOD AS TYRA BANKS, so be honest with yourself and stop hating, Tyra looks good in anything and bitches wished they looked half as good as here, and men wish their girlfriend could have half the body like her. Get real Tyra Banks is a legend, something you only wished you could be. Stop being jealous and give credict where credict is do. The outfit is gorgeous I absolutely love it , and those of you that think it isn’t you obviously dont know fashion, and if the outfit was ugly she looks damn good in it, that how you know a beautiful woman with a beautiful body when she can where anything and looks good. FORGET THE HATERS TYRA, AND BITCHES STOP JEALOUS, I BET YOU COULD MAKE A MILLION OF YOUR FACE! (HAHA)

  • rENEE

    real hair, fake hair, no hair(seen her with a bald head) and her face is drop dead gorgeous, so who cares shes still hot.

  • rENEE

    All so sadened to hear all the hate from you when about Tyra Banks. Coming from a man, she oozes nothing but class and an abundance of sex appeal in this outfit. All without showing an abundace of skin. Look and learn haters

  • Suppress your appetite

    She always look so pretty!
