Spread Your Wings

Tyra goes down in history as being one of the original Victoria’s Secret Angels. She got her “wings” in 1997 and she strutted her stuff for years in their annual fashion show. Her curves, though not an “industry standard,” helped her stand out in the lingerie company: “I made my living being 20 or 30 pounds heavier than the average model,” she has said. “And that's where I got famous. Victoria's Secret said I sold more bras and panties than anybody else, and I was traipsing down that runway with 30 pounds more booty than the other girls.”
