In the Beginning...

Tyra began modeling at 15, but she got her big break at 17 when she was signed by the largest modeling agency in the world, Elite Model Management, in 1990. She booked her first print shoot for Seventeen that year. After graduating high school she decided to forgo college when the agency offered to send her to Paris to model. During her first runway season she booked a record 25 shows at Paris Fashion Week!
