Supermodel To Mogul

COSMO talks to Tyra about SA, empowering women and the importance of being 'flawsome'.

She's graced every important magazine cover in history, received two Daytime Emmy Awards for The Tyra Banks Show and has been named 'One Of The Most Influential People In The World' by Time magazine. Her novel, Modelland (Delacorte) is about to become a New York Times bestseller, and there's a rumour that it could be made into a movie.

But what we really love about the feisty host of America's Next Top Model is her refusal to succumb to societal pressure to be anything other than what she is. She says, 'Loving yourself is paramount, no matter what shape, size or colour you are. I call it being flawsome: you + your flaws + awesome = flawsome.'

Her advice to anyone starting out is 'Don't chase the money, chase the passion.' Read more about what drives this fun, fearless female who sparkles from the cover of the gorgeously festive December issue of COSMO - on sale now.
