Tyra Banks is a modeling force to be reckoned with, and she’s not afraid to let you know it. Making a career out of breaking down barriers, Tyra has been the first African American model to grace the cover of GQ, Sports Illustrated, and the Victoria’s Secret Catelog. Her success as a model led the way for her to become host of America’s Next Top Model and her own talk show. Tyra is a Diva with a caital ‘D,’ but she’s an advocate for positive body image and launched a “So What” campaign to raise awareness. Her talk show won an Emmy in 2008. Tyra continues to redefine the word “fierce” as she mentors up and coming models on her show.
