Out of Retirement! Tyra Banks Looks Smoking on New Cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

Tyra Banks comes out of retirement to pose for Sports Illustrated!

One of the most recognizable modeling figures in history, Tyra Banks was once the most popular model in the industry. She made history in 1997 when she became the first black woman to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated solo. It has been more than twenty years since that historic cover hit shelves, putting Tyra Banks on the map.


Since posing for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition back in 1997, Tyra Banks has gone on to establish herself as one of the most powerful women in modeling. The popularity she garnered helped Banks transform from much sought after model to a reality television and talk show host.

Now, Tyra Banks is returning to modeling after a long hiatus to once again grace the cover of Sports Illustrated. At age 45, Tyra Banks is still looking as beautiful as ever as the below image shows.

It’s safe to say that after all these years Tyra Banks is looking as smoking as ever! What do you think of the new Sports Illustrated cover featuring Tyra Banks?
