“You Wanna Be On Top?”
WHO SHE IS: Supermodel, Talk Show Host, Actress & Judge of America’s Next Top Model – Tyra Banks is no stranger to our screens!
WHAT SHE DOES: One of the biggest supermodels in history – she has modelled for Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Donna Karen, Calvin Klien, Armani, Marc Jacobs, the list goes on! And let’s not forget every girl’s dream of being a Victoria Secret Angel, yeah she was one of those too, no biggie! She owns her own media company and is the producer, director, host and judge of the biggest modelling tv show’s ever America’s Next Top Model. She also had her own talk show The Tyra Show. Not to mention the inventor of the smize.
WHY I LOVE HER: From growing up watching ANTM I always loved Tyra. She oozes confidence, positivity and she’s such a female BOSS! I also think she’s so relatable. Growing up with her single Mam with not a lot of money, Tyra really worked hard for everything she has and despite her success is SO humble. I’m a fan of her talk show the Tyra Show also, it goes over some really good topics especially for young girls and dealing with society.
WHY SHE IS QUEEN OF THE WEEK: Tyra is an AMAZING role model for young girls. She promotes healthy body image, confidence, working hard and besides being one of the most paid models in history she really emphasises that beauty is more than skin deep which is a really important thing to remember, especially in this day and age! She isn’t afraid to show off her flaws (she was always teased for having a big forehead and being too tall) she learnt to overcome it, love yourself and work with what she has!
INTERESTING FACT: Tyra is the first African American woman to on the covers of GQ magazine and sports illustrated swimsuit issue. YAS TY!
