tyrabanksStretch marks. Yep. Didn’t think I’d be talking about body stuff on a photo of sand, did you? But that’s what I see when I look at this photo. Stretch marks. The ones my 15 year old body had for growing so fast. The ones that disappeared when my backside filled out. The ones that may reappear as I stay safe at home bonding over family meals and snacks as yummy comfort during our uncertain times. Stretch marks tell a story. What story do YOURS tell?
tyrabanksOftentimes, there is so much attention to the model in a photo and we ignore how absolutely beautiful the surroundings of the photo are. Today marks the 50th anniversary of #EarthDay. This photo is a reminder of how beautiful our planet is. We are going through the some of the toughest times our planet has ever seen, but this photo reminds me of how strong our earth is. We will get through this. 🌎

tyrabanksDid you take a double take, like, “Wait a second...is that Tyra posing with Tyra?” In my home, I don’t have lots of art of myself on my walls. But this piece has followed me to every place I have lived. And now, I’m bringing a little piece of my home, to yours. 💛
tyrabanksWe are in the thick of pain and so much despair. My mom has always taught me to “Look to the other side”. To imagine a day later, or a week, or a month, or a year later. To close my eyes and paint the picture of a better place. A better time. A better everything. That better everything is not tomorrow, but it does exist in our future. We will get there. One day at a time. 💛 Look to the other side.
tyrabanksIt’s so amazing how simplicity with a dash of edge, can create photo art from home. Her face is washed. Her hair is natural. But that pose is NOT relaxed. She’s giving us STRONG HANDS and is framing her face in such a uniquely angular way. @theofficialdenika, you followed and tagged @ModelLand with this pic but I’m not sure you ever thought I’d see you and post you to my page, huh? I see you. ModelLand sees you. Everybody, show her some love. #ModelLand #mXdels
tyrabanksWhen I look at this picture I see a few things: The hue of the sky feels somber. But I can’t help but also recognize that it’s golden, and that colors the picture with beauty. What do you see?
tyrabanksIt’s black and white but still made you stop and look, huh? Yeah...she’s serving us all “Captivating”. And she’s not even looking into the lense. She’s looking AWAY. But you are looking at HER. Take notes. She followed and tagged @ModelLand with this pic, and now she’s getting mad love from me. This could be you. #ModelLand

tyrabanksWith everything going on right now, we are all trying to keep our heads up and share a smile that so many of us need. So here's a smile from me to you. A few weeks ago I covered a LOT of ground with @cosmopolitan, from the 'viscosity and palette' of the finer things like BBQ sauce, to an answer that my ENTIRE CAREER rests on… but do I measure up to the expensive tastes of the test subjects before me? - talking to you Miss Iggy Azalea @thenewclassic 💛💛
tyrabanksI've answered a LOT of questions throughout my career, but these were some of my favorite @teenvogue. We covered a lot of ground - I may or may not have thrown @Oprah to the ground, hit a theme park with my girl @MichelleObama and shared my darkest secret yet... @Beyonce and I are the same person 💛😂 Check it out! #TeenVogue
tyrabanksYou gotta see my @accessonline interview about my next-level-fierce @ninewest Collection and Innovators Campaign. International Women’s Day is just around the corner (heck to the yes!) so it’s all about saluting visionary females! Not to mention a fashion flashback through the BabyTyTy runway dayz. Can you guess the designers? Watch! 💛💛
tyrabanksGreat chatting to @jlp with @complex, we covered a lot from being the first non-athlete with a Nike sponsorship to music with the great Kobe Bryant. Not to mention an H2T crush on Larry David 💛💛 Check it out on YouTube and see which sneakers I chose! #Complex
tyrabanksBanX, reporting for duty to Protect and Serve-(face) 👮🏾♀️… Huge shout out to the talented @udophotography for this phierce photo! Never a bad shoot with Udo 💛. Udo has captured me as so many different women, including me as @gracejonesofficial and @the_real_iman!!! Google it and you’ll see. I wonder what image of me he will capture next. Follow this snap superstar 📸 to one day find out!
