Tyra Banks Graces The Cover Of Sports Illustrated At Age 45

This isn’t her first rodeo, the model/actress/mogul has graced the cover of Sports Illustrated three different times now. This is an incredible feat for any aspiring model. Since her first appearance on the cover, she has changed in different ways. Life it seems has been good for her and the career she has had. Tyra has on a very skimpy yellow string bikini, that has heads turning.

Even Tyra herself can’t believe where the time has gone, telling ABC’s “GMA,” “My first [cover] was 23 years ago, how crazy is that?!”

Her first appearance dates back to 1996. Since then, she has become a cultural force with her celebrity status. The editor of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit MJ Day said, “She’s kind of the Swimsuit Issue ethos come to life, everything we know this franchise can be.”

Tyra has graced covers of many fashion magazines and billboards over the years but being on Sports Illustrated at age 45, is a special thing. She should be proud of it as she looks great. Tyra first started her modelling career back when she was a teenager. She would then go on to sign a contract with CoverGirl in 1993. This eventually led her to becoming a Victoria’s Secret Angel.

Tyra has appeared on the small screen in productions such as “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”. She also has appeared in a number of films such as Coyote Ugly (2000) and is known for her hit television series, “America’s Next Top Model”.

Who’s knows what’s next for the supermodel but when it comes to getting what she wants, she reaches for the stars. Tyra is the first African-American model, to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition (Winter of 1997).


To her credit, her proudest moment came when she welcomed her first child in 2016, a baby boy. Tyra was also named one of the most beautiful people in the world by People Magazine back in 1994. It isn’t just her outer beauty that shines, its her spirit that comes through in anything that she does.
