You wanna know Tyra Banks ?

My faourite top model in the world would be Ms Tyra Banks...If anyone who watch ANTM will definitely love her like i do... Her name is Tyra Lynne Banks, born at Inglewood, California...in the date of December 4th, 1973...that would make her 36 years old this year, but she still looks young right? :)

You wanna be on top?!?
Tyra is not just a top model with pretty face, she's also a television host, an actress, a singer and even a business person. She graduated from John Burroughs Middle School in the year of 1991 and complete her study in Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles.

Tyra acts cute :)
Tyra begans her modelling career in her 11th grade. She went to Paris to do some runway modelling. Within her 1st week in Paris, designers were so entranced by her presence on the runway that she was booked for 25 shows!!! A record in the business for a newcomer in the modelling line. Some of those shows are: Anna Sui; Chanel; Christian Dior; D&G; Donna Karan; Milk; Pepsi; Swatch; Tommy Hilfiger & Victoria's Secret...She has also appeared on the covers of high fashion magazine such as Vogue, Cosmopolitan & Elle at tat time...

Tyra looks fierce

Tyra also shot for the Playboy magazine for the May 1997 pictorial with other top models such as Milla Jovovich, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss...

On May 2005, Tyra announced to get retired from modeling so she can concentrate on her television career. She ended up her modeling career by doing the runway show for the final time at the 2005 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
Tyra acted in a few series such as "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air(1993)", "Felicity(1999)", "MADtv(2000)", "American Dreams(2004)" & "All of Us(2004)"...As for the movie part, "Higher Learning(1995)", "Love Stinks(1999)", "Love & Basketball(2000)", "Life-Size(2000)", "Coyote Ugly(2000)", "Halloween:Resurrection(2002)", "Eight Crazy Night(2002)", "Mr. Woodcock(2007)", "Tropic Thunder(2008)" & "Hanna Montana: The Movie(2009)"...Although Tyra was just a guest actress in all those films and series...but definitely she's enjoying it...

As a singer, Tyra has once said "Singing has been a passion of mine for a long, long time...six years on the down low been ducking in and out of studios cutting tracks." Later on her talk show she also mentioned "I can't believe I wasted 6 years of doing something that I didn't finish...I was almost able to release my album T.Y.R.A.,but since my music career hit rock bottom, I QUIT!!!" But i think every fans of ANTM definitely has heard her song "Shake Ya Body" b4 right? its quite hot for me :) Tyra also appeared in several music videos b4 including Black or White (Michael Jackson); Love Thing (Tina Turner); Trife Life (Mobb Deep) & Too Funky (George Michael)
Tyra is a survivor
In 1998, Tyra authored her ever 1st book entitled "Tyra's Beauty, Inside and Out". The book was advertised as a resource for helping women to make the most out of their natural beauty...
