She may be the Queen of Smize but model mogul, TV presenter, actress, one-time singer Tyra Banks goes a tad Gothic for The Phillipines Mega Magazine, sporting all black looks, barely there makeup which shows off her incredible skin and sleek wet-look hair.
“Philippines’ @cw_antm fams give #ANTM so much love that I decided 2 do the cover of @megastyleph for its 22nd anni! #MakingMegaWithTyraBanks,” the supermodel captioned a photo of the magazine cover.
The 40-year-old model who can still give models half her age a run for their money shared several pictures on Twitter, including a close-up portrait, which shows her gazing at the camera with wet hair falling into her face.
“So U know when UR hair’s in UR face but looks kinda cool so U leave it. @mega_magazine! (sic),” she wrote sharing the image on her social media.
America’s Next Top Model presenter also shared a picture of herself in a floor-length black gown with a leather top with the words: “(Super)model jump during my @mega_magazine photo shoot? CHECK! Gorg dress was so long, I may or may not have tripped (sic).”
Another snap showed Tyra a little slouched in a velvet black dress. “Nothin’ wrong w/ slouching while U stand as long as U R posing 4 @mega_magazine! Otherwise, stand tall, stand fierce! (sic),” she joked.
On the cover of the 22nd anniversary issue of Mega, which was released early this month, Tyra Banks shows off her signature “smize” wearing a black embellished dress by top local designer Rajo Laurel.
“Tyra proved to be the consummate professional, a true supermodel, taking one sublime picture after the other,” according to a writeup on Mega’s website.
