When it came down to footwear, the supermodel decided to keep the focus on her dress in a subtle choice of heels. The classic pointed-toe pumps matched the shade of Banks’ tight in a patent camel colorway, elongating her frame with an approximate 4-inch stiletto heel.

Banks was first named as the series’ host for its 29th season in July 2020, replacing former co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews as the show’s first Black female host. After the news was announced last year, Banks took to Twitter to share her appreciation, writing: “So excited to be hosting and producing the new @DancingABC. There’s so much legacy. Can’t wait to bring the fierce, the fun and the SMIZE.”

As for Banks’ personal style, her bold gown on set falls in line with her typical bold taste. From her modeling career in the 1990s to her style on and off the red carpet, the television personality prefers styles from brands like Marc Bouwer, Gianvito Rossi, Saint Laurent and more.

She also signed on as an ambassador for Nine West in 2019, adding to her lineup of campaigns alongside Yves Saint Laurent, Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabanna amongst other major names.
