Tyra Banks Covers ‘Cosmopolitan South Africa’

Rock solid! Model and business woman Tyra Banks covers the December 2012 issue of Cosmopolitan South Africa. Shot by Udo Spreitzenbarth, the America’s Next Top Model creator dazzles in a gold corset by The Blonds, a Herve Leger bandage skirt and jewelry by CC Skye. She’s been keeping herself very busy with her multi-million dollar empire, but took time to share her advice with the magazine on what it takes to have a successful career.

On societal pressures on body images:
“Loving yourself is paramount, no matter what shape, size or color you are. I call it being flawsome: you + your flaws + awesome = flawsome.”

On how to succeed in the modeling business:
“Don’t chase the money, chase the passion.”
