Tyra Banks is getting honest about the work she’s had done!
In a new interview with People, promoting the new memoir she wrote with her mother called Perfect Is Boring, the 44-year-old sounds off on “natural beauties” who judge others who use makeup or procedures. In the book, she takes it a step further by revealing she got a nose job early in her career.
She tells the outlet of why she’s starting this conversation now:
“Natural beauty is unfair. I get really uncomfortable when women who are these natural beauties judge anybody who does anything to themselves.”
When discussing her nose job, the model explains:
“I had bones in my nose that were growing and itching. I could breathe fine, but I added cosmetic surgery. I admit it! Fake hair, and I did my nose. I feel I have a responsibility to tell the truth.”
Miz Banks also doesn’t approve of praising the “no makeup” look:
“We place a lot of emphasis on that. As a model, I needed makeup. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. It leveled my playing field. Gisele, you don’t need it? I do! And we’re both modeling for Victoria’s Secret.”
“If you like your natural self, don’t worry about it. But if you feel insecure about something ├óΓé¼┬ª I have a magic bag of beauty tricks to make you who you want to be. Permanent or temporary, I do not judge that.”
The TV personality says her main goal is to start a more truthful conversation about beauty and looks:
“Fix it or flaunt it ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I think women should be able to do both. There is a boundary line, either you’re super natural or you live at the plastic surgeon. It’s okay to hop back and forth over that line. You want a hair weave? Fine. You want permanent eyebrows? Fine. We as women need to stop judging.”
Do what makes you happy, bbs!
