Tyra Banks is looking for plus size models

Hey girls!  If you’re between the ages of 13 and 19, wear a size between 12 and 20 and are 5’9″ to 6’1″ in height, then Tyra Banks wants you!  The finalists for the first “Fiercely Real Teen Model Search” will be announced during “The Tyra Show” March 2 and the winner crowned the next day.  She will receive a one-year modeling contract and photo shoot with a magazine.
“I’ve always felt it was my mission to expand the narrow perceptions of beauty,” she said.  “Plus-sized tends to have a negative connotation and I want young girls to realize that what’s considered plus-sized is the average American woman. That woman is healthy, fit and beautiful. Adolescence is such an impressionable time in a young woman’s life, and I hope this contest helps teen girls discover their own beauty from the inside out.”

One thought on “Tyra Banks is looking for plus size models

  1. Go head Tyra. I ain’t mad at you. It’s about time that someone acknowledged that you can be in the plus size category and still be a diva. She is always big on self esteem and even the word “real” in the contest reflect the reality of young lady’s (and women) sizes in the the world. I will have to catch this episode.
