Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular! held a pre-national tour event on July 17 at Brooklyn's Barclays Center: the "Dinosaur Feathered Fashion Show." Since Walking With Dinosaurs' premiere in 2006, the show's 20 animatronic dinosaurs have technologically "evolved" to feature specially engineered skin, hair, and distinctive display feathers — reflecting recent evolutionary findings and theories.

The show introduced the "creatures' newest fashion collections for 2014, hot off the prehistoric runway." America's Next Top Model judge Jay Manuel was on hand to introduce the dinosaurs to the crowd.
