Even the queens of the catwalk feel pressure to fit in to keep up with the Joneses.
While it was never quite a secret, Tyra Banks finally revealed that she did upgrade her appearance back in the day courtesy of a nose job.
“Natural beauty is unfair. I get really uncomfortable when women who are these natural beauties judge anybody who does anything to themselves,” Banks told People in a new interview.
“I had bones in my nose that were growing and itching. I could breathe fine, but I added cosmetic surgery. I admit it! Fake hair, and I did my nose. I feel I have a responsibility to tell the truth.”
Now in her mid-40s, Ty Ty is also spilling the tea about that so-called “natural beauty” myth circulating the industry. “We place a lot of emphasis on that,” she explained.
“As a model, I needed makeup. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. It leveled my playing field. 'Gisele, you don’t need it?' I do! And we’re both modeling for Victoria’s Secret.”
Finally, for those who think she copped out for getting work done? She doesn’t give AF.
“Fix it or flaunt it — I think women should be able to do both,” she says. “There is a boundary line, either you’re super natural or you live at the plastic surgeon."
"It’s okay to hop back and forth over that line. You want a hair weave? Fine. You want permanent eyebrows? Fine. We as women need to stop judging.”
