Tyra Banks Quotes

1. The beginning of my career focused on trying to be a successful model for myself. How many campaigns, magazine covers, fashion shows, and endorsements I could get. The way I see the world now has changed. I am trying to offer as much opportunity to others as I can. - Tyra Banks

4. I still think the fashion industry has a long way to go as far as self-awareness in the way it affects the people that it employs and targets.

Tyra Banks Quotes

11. It was the impossible physical expectations that pushed me towards a more commercial trajectory. My body was becoming more womanly, it was a natural thing, and my mother wanted me to feel proud of that, not ashamed. Trying to steer my body away from its natural curviness would have been physically unhealthy so instead I steered my career towards an audience who would identify with it and embrace it. - Tyra Banks

17. As I look into the future, I see radical changes in both how people 'attain beauty,' and how the world perceives beauty. In general, I believe traditional beauty will be less valuable - and more uniqueness will be heralded. - Tyra Banks
