I'll confess, I have never seen "Life-Size" (you can yell at me later), but here is what I know about the film: First released in 2000 for ABC, it stars supermodel and "America's Next Top Model" host Tyra Banks and a young, pre-scandal Lindsay Lohan, who uses magic to bring her Eve doll to life (enter: Banks). I'm also a big fan of this GIF:

Anyway, there was much rejoicing when it was announced (all the way back in 2012! Simpler times.) that Banks would return for a sequel to "Life-Size" — dubbed, appropriately, "Life-Size 2" — a mere 18 years later. That brings us to Tuesday night, when Banks arrived for her big moment at the "Life-Size 2" premiere in an Eve-ready outfit. Like Barbie, Eve has a preference for pink, and Banks pulled out all the bubblegum stops for the evening.

She started with a hot pink minidress (with sleeves, because it is November, after all), which has an added jazzy element of a fuller, longer skirt that splits to reveal a neon-pink silk lining. Talk about magic! But why stop there? Banks added a pair of thigh-high, pointed-toe boots in a matching neon pink shade of velvet. Oh, did you think the inventor of the smize doesn't know how to play with color and texture? Think again

Banks finished the look with hot pink tassel earrings, which are doll-perfect accessories, and a half-up high pony. Ariana Grande whomst?!
