We caught Tyra Banks indulging in a sweet treat while strolling through Malibu on Sunday, and we have to commend the catwalker for loving her body just the way it is!

A lot of models succumb to pressure to be a size 0, but Miss Banks has always maintained that you don't have to be super skinny to be beautiful, and we couldn't agree more!

Vogue magazine recently vowed not to work with models under the age of 16 or who appear to have an eating disorder, and the America's Next Top Model host was quick to respond to the major announcement.

"If I was just starting to model at age 17 in 2012, I could not have had the career that I did. I would've been considered too heavy. In my time, the average model's size was a four or six. Today you are expected to be a size zero. When I started out, I didn't know such a size even existed," she wrote in an open letter to aspiring models around the world.

Saving the globe one beautiful face at a time, you go girl!

Banks will play Ms. Burke, who helps main character CeCe concoct a Parent Trap-like plan to get her parents back together!

Not many people can pull off an all-gray jumpsuit and still look picture perfect, but supermodel Tyra Banks can make any ensemble look good.

We caught up with the gorgeous Miss Banks while she was exiting Il Covo restaurant in Hollywood on Thursday night, and she couldn't stop smiling! Could it be due to the fact that the America's Next Top Model judge has recently been named a New York Times best selling author?

The model/mogul's debut novel, 'Modelland', topped the Barnes and Noble charts this week and came in second in the New York Times Children's Chapter Books chart.

After riding a huge wave of success with her first book, Banks is reportedly working on a film adaptation for 'Modelland' and has admitted she is already looking to cast a girls who could play the characters in the book.
