The proof is in the
pudding ice cream!
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!
Do you think Tyra Banks is a good role model?
