Successful Black Women: Tyra Banks

Tyra Banks is one of the most powerful supermodels and television personalities in the media today. She was born in 1973 in California.

After shooting a print piece for Seventeen magazine, she quickly rose up the fashion modeling ranks. During her first season in Paris in 1991, she booked 25 runway shows.

Tyra was the first African-American woman to appear on the cover of GQ, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, and Victoria’s Secret lingerie catalog.

She created the show America’s Next Top Model in 2003, and has been producing and hosting the popular hit reality series ever since!

Tyra hosted her own ever-popular talk show, The Tyra Show, for five years until it ended in 2010. In early 2012, she finished a special source for CEOs and top executives at Harvard Business School.
