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? :)

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.

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!!!"
