‘Dilophosaurus for the win’: Jurassic World hilarious troll Tyra Banks for her viral dress
As Tyra Banks hosted Dancing With the Stars this week, wearing an eye-catching dress, a meme fest was just waiting to happen. The burgundy dresses with mesh gloves and pleated wings had netizens comparing her to the venom-spitting dilophosaurus dinosaur that appeared in Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park.
The comparison quickly found virality with Jurassic World’s social media handle taking note as well. They took to their official Twitter account where they posted a collage of dilophosaurus and Tyra Banks viral dress. The tweet was captioned “Who wore it best?”

In a recent interview with James Corden on his show The late show, Tyra Banks also touched on the comparisons between the two. While she initially called it a peacock-inspired look, she named herself Tyra-nnosaurus Rex on her social media after the same fest.
It looked like Jurassic World was okay too. They took the clip of Tyra discussing the look and captioned it: “New Dinosaur Discovered: Tyra-nnosaurus Rex”.
The dress was styled by Natalia Barzilai and Eric Archibald, who told Insider their goal was to showcase Banks’ “incredible figure”. They specially asked Julian Mendez, the creator, to “build the dress fit for a queen”.
Here’s how people reacted to the Jurassic World post:
As gorgeous as Tyra is, this time the prize goes to Dilophosaurus 🤩
