One Frickin Day with the Frickin Amazing Tyra Banks!

Continuing with our dresses worn by models to be sold to benefit the charity, One Frickin Day, is this amazing haute couture ball gown donated by Tyra Banks.  The amazing Tyra Banks.  Tyra Banks of the Tyra Banks Show, Tyra of Entertainment Weekly magazine's 'Americas next top mogul', Tyra of Glamour magazine's 'Women of the Year'.  Tyra of the intimidating glare on America's Next Top Model.  Style and Substance.

The slogan for the Tyra Banks show is, "Every woman has a story and it has happened to Tyra too."  
Well, I think in vintage, every dress as a story... 

This incredible gown, beautifully made by the Lebanese designer Georges Chakra, was donated by Tyra Banks.  The strapless bodice is trimmed in black and a sprinkling of gold feathers.  The empire waist is jeweled and the elaborately flared golden and silver pleated chiffon skirt lies upon layers of gold tulle trimmed in matte gold sequins.  I love those little details that are only from the wearer to know.   Just Tyra and you...  

And I am happy to say that though most of these dresses tend to be quite tiny, this gown is more of a size 6/8.
