So fierce, it’s scary!
Literally!! Not that we object or anything, but Tyra Bank's ferocity on and in the summer issue of Fault magazine has us shaking and crying — in the best way possible!
That killer stare! Those spikes and feather talons! There just aren't enough words in the dictionary that could describe how much life this is giving us!
And that's just the cover! Inside, TyTy works a coat and bustier by Jeremy Scott, a sculptured structure that encapsulates her body within its cage-like glory and some cray cray goth makeup.
When she finally stopped slaying the camera with her smizes, Tyra talked to the mag about America’s Next Top Model and the amount of influence the show has had on the industry and pop culture.
On the future of ANTM:
"It’s also really important to me to stay on the cutting edge of trends in photography and technology. In addition to still having ANTM fans as the fourth judge; we’re doing some exciting new things that fans will see during judging that will really wow them. I think it is crucial to keep moving forward in the world of modeling and photography; there are so many innovative things that can be done that have not been fully adopted by those worlds yet."
On her influence on the English language:
"It’s great because it means that when words like 'smize', 'tooch', and 'flawsome' are penetrating people’s psyches, so is the larger messages behind them. Anybody can perfect the smize and give that model look. You can 'tooch' your booty and work it no matter your shape or size. And being 'flawsome' is embracing yourself and your uniqueness, flaws and all. It’s really cool to hear those words used so mainstream now. Look out for the newest catch phrase, inspired by the 20th Cycle of America’s Next Top Model: the 'booch' or 'boy tooch'.”
On how she would describe herself:
"Fierce, flawsome, beauty and booty."
On her non-faulty fault:
"Making crazy faces and not giving a damn because perfect is boring."
Words of wisdom from a true fashion diva.
We know she (and the boys!) will be BRINGING IT on Cycle 20 of ANTM!
