Tyra Banks in her “fat suit” during her talk show:

You got to respect this girl! She is trying so hard to tell people that the world doesn’t only consists of skinny anorexic women that the media portrays!

Tyra Bank was the first African-American to be featured on the covers of GQ and the Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue, but is most noted for her work as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, Victoria’s Secret model, and talk-show hostess. In 1997 she won the prestigious Michael Award for “Supermodel of the Year”.

Now with a little bit more fat gained, she looks a bit funny. She never feels shy about her odd shape but continue publicly talking about her weight gain (she’s 5’10” and currently weighs 161 lbs). She tells People magazine:

“I get so much mail from young girls who say, ‘I look up to you, you’re not as skinny as everyone else, I think you’re beautiful.’ So when they say that my body is ‘ugly’ and ‘disgusting,’ what does that make those girls feel like? I still feel hot, but every day is different. It’s when I put on the jeans that used to fit a year ago and don’t fit now and give me the muffin top, that’s when I say, ‘Damn!’ I feel more comfortable when I’m lighter – I sleep better, I snore less, I have more endurance when I work out, my arms look better. I’ve made millions of dollars with the body I have, so where’s the pain in that? If I was in pain, I would have dieted. The pain is not there – the pain is someone printing a picture of me and saying those (horrible) things.”

Is she still hot?
