Kirstie braved the runway for designer Zang Toi’s Spring 2012 Fashion Show earlier this week, debuting her slimmer physique in an eye-popping royal blue gown with rhinestone accents.

“I’ve lost 100 pounds,” the 60-year-old actress told Entertainment Tonight Tuesday. “I feel like I’m back in my element. I honestly didn’t even realize what I looked like.”

She added: “Before Dancing with the Stars, I bought these dresses from size 14 to 4. They were all the same dress, and I said, ‘You know what I really want? I really wanna be in this dress in a 4!’”

But Tim doesn't believe it.

"There is a phenomenon out there right now that I call the lying deceptive shell game of vanity sizing," he explained. "In fact a 4 is really a 6 or an 8. In our heads we're all a double zero!"

Tim did make sure to praise Kirstie for how she looks, regardless of the sizing.

"She looks fabulous. People are too size-conscious. It's all about how you look and more importantly how do you look in your clothes!"
