It’s been well over a decade since Tyra Banks awed the masses with the Sports Illustrated cover featuring the fresh-faced model in a pink and red polka dot bikini. Now, a talk show and an abundance of career ventures later, Tyra is revisiting her modeling cover days for Cosmo South Africa.

With rumors of the revival of Tyra’s 2000 TV movie, Life Sized, on the horizon, Tyra graced the cover in a Herve Leger dress with a mirrored corset by The Blonds for an appropriately glittery holiday cover.

In the corresponding article, Tyra touched on her normal topics of being “flawsome” and having self worth: 

On societal pressures for body image:

“Loving yourself is paramount, no matter what shape, size or color you are. I call it being flawsome: you + your flaws + awesome = flawsome.”

On starting out in the modeling business:

“Don’t chase the money, chase the passion.”
