Tyra Banks is many things: world renowned supermodel, bestselling author, fashion and beauty mogul, and wig snatcher.
But over the weekend, the ANTM creator hung up her lace front and showed us her real inches on the gram. “Me…because sometimes the wigs and weaves need a vacation,” she wrote in the caption.
LOOK 👏🏿 AT 👏🏿 ALL 👏🏿 THAT 👏🏿 TEXTURE 👏🏿
Back in 2009, the celebrity revealed her real tresses on her Emmy-winning talk show, Tyra. “I’ve worn weaves, and wigs, and pieces… since I was 17, 18 years old,” Banks said to her live audience. “And I wanted to show the real me. I wanted to show the raw me.”
Since rising to international superstardom, Banks has advocated to challenge the fashion industry’s biased beauty standards, and to give models of all ethnic, gender and body identities a platform.
Sis was in these streets championing inclusion and encouraging people to embrace their real selves before it was trendy, so put some respect on her name.
