Tyra Banks’s smize is so on point that she doesn’t need a stitch of makeup to make a selfie work. The supermodel posted a series of photos on Instagram in which she’s wearing little, if any, makeup and her hair is un-styled. “This special filter is called Crazy,” Banks began her caption.
For her first season as a judge on America’s Got Talent, Tyra Banks really turned it out. From skin-tight mini dresses to formal gowns, the model seized every moment. The all-black ensemble was paired with over-the-knee black satin boots and some fringe shoulder pads.
Notable attendees shared a bit of their behind-the-scenes prep work before attending the TCA awards in Los Angeles.
Tyra Banks puts her best #FaceForward in her latest confidence-boosting social media campaign. Tyra Banks — supermodel, entrepreneur, and TV star extraordinaire — took to Instagram on April 4 to launch a powerful self-love campaign marked with the hashtag #FaceForward. In the short video, negative words — including ‘hate,’ ‘broken,’ ‘pain’, and ‘anger’ — are scrawled across the 43-year-old’s ageless face.
When Tyra Banks talks about what she’s loving, people follow suit. When the “Smile with your eyes” queen raves about a beauty trend, people tend to listen, and for good reason. Apparently, Tyra is one of them.
Yahoo Style: So, Tyra Banks is passing the torch to you this season on Top Model. Rita Ora: My first instinct was, “How the hell am I ever going to replace Tyra Banks?” But then I looked at it as, it’s not replacing Tyra Banks, it’s basically rebranding Top Model for 2016. Tyra is still involved.
While many models are aged out of the industry after a decade or two, Tyra Banks has ruled the runways and the small screen for 27 years. With a striking appearance and a big personality, Banks blew away casting agents at 15 years old and booked 25 shows her first time at Paris Fashion Week. Over the years, Banks has transformed from Victoria’s Secret Angel and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl to a major media mogul. This month she’s about to wrap her 22nd and final season of America’s Next Top Model and focus on shilling her popular Tyra Beauty makeup line.
By Erin Cunningham & Landon Peoples When America’s Next Top Model first aired in May 2003, it was revolutionary. Tyra Banks had already achieved international fame as one of the world’s biggest (and first) African-American supermodels — and as Lindsay Lohan’s inimitable co-star in Life Size — and had officially made her foray into the television sphere. She was on our screens to bring the fashion industry to reality TV — to help young, aspiring models achieve their dreams of being “on top.” What came, after 22 seasons — or cycles, as Ty-Ty called them — was a plethora of out-of-control and, dare we say, cringeworthy moments; an endless stream of episodes fluttered with screams, tears, cat fights, relationship woes, and lots of tripping in high heels that not only entertained its audience, but showed a side of modeling that isn’t so, well, glamorous.

The market has been taken over by celebrities.” At the same time, Porizkova says that—thanks to post-production retouching tools like Adobe Photoshop—today’s models, themselves, aren’t on the same level that they used to be (ouch!): “Adobe Photoshop killed the model,” she says.

Boselli, who has a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering with a focus on the computational design of steam turbines, is represented by Models1 London. Along with delivering stimulating explanations of the way things work, Boselli spends time training, hiking, biking, and competing in fitness competitions, regularly posting shirtless selfies on his Instagram page (he has about 174,000 followers). Photo: pietroboselli/Instagram Boselli’s double life has shocked his students (and made many more college kids consider transferring and/or changing majors), but he’s not the only one disproving the stereotype that models are nothing more than living clothes hangers. Karlie Kloss recently admitted she’s cutting back on job commitments, more specifically severing her contract with Victoria’s Secret to make time to attend NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study.
