Tyra Banks Slays The Model Scene (Again)…

With her splashy cover on the “2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue,” top model/entrepreneur/author/actress Tyra Banks once again takes her iconic career to new heights. Having first appeared in the Swimsuit Issue in 1997 as the first Black woman—to appear solo—on the coveted issue’s cover, Tyra broke barriers. And now she’s back in the modeling game (after announcing her retirement from the fashion industry 13 years ago) with a new name: Banx, with the “x” representing crossing out stereotypes of what beauty is all about. What’s next for Tyra? Think theme park (or “an attraction” as Tyra likes to describe it). Plans are in the works for Modelland to open in Los Angeles by the end of the year, with attendees enjoying the opportunity to see what it’s like to be a model for the day…just don’t forget how to “smize.”
