Black Magic – Tyra Banks by Thom Kerr for Black Magazine

She is 41 and fabulous – Tyra Banks, one of the world’s most recognisable women stars on the cover of the Black Magazine. With a successful modelling career behind her she is the first African-American model that appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated  and GQ, and the founder of the Next Top Model franchise, making her a top reference for models worldwide, in 59 countries.

About her beginning in modelling : “To be honest, I wasn’t attracted to the fashion industry, the fashion industry found me. I was discovered on a school bench the first day of high school by a fellow student. I thought I was far too awkward and gawky to ever be associated with modeling but it was actually those qualities that launched my early career. Once I was in the fashion world and walking the runways of Paris I was attracted to the nuance of the industry; the specific things that certain designers looked for in a model and what aesthetic caught their eye. I tried to be a chameleon and studied up on designers prior to meeting them at “go-sees” (auditioning for modeling jobs) in order to be the fashion muse they were looking to cast.”
