However, the element of Banks’ outfit that drew the most attention were her dress’ sleeves. Fanning out in wide circular shapes, the pleated sleeves took center stage with their massive shape and sharp textures.
Viewers at home certainly took notice, with many taking to Twitter to share their reactions to the former “America’s Next Top Model” creator’s maximalist look. Most drew comparisons between Banks’ sleeves and the flared neck of the dilophosaurus dinosaurs from the 1993 sci-fi film “Jurassic Park.” Similarities between the dress and pasta, party decorations and more were also made online.
