Tyra Banks Celebrates Beauty Inside and Out

Tyra Banks Celebrates Beauty Inside and Out

Tyra Banks poses with Top Model judge and noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker at her first B.I.O. Summit in Auckland, New Zealand on Wednesday (December 16).

Ty took in local culture and learned about traditional New Zealand greetings, including the hongi, or touching of the noses!

The 36-year-old model spoke about expanding the definitions of beauty at the international event. “I’m asking women around the world to make a pledge to expand their definition of beauty….Think outside of the box. It’s time for you to celebrate and help redefine beauty,” Tyra wrote on her website.

You can submit a 30 second video to Tyra‘s Beauty Inside & Out site saying how you plan to redefine beauty!

“I’m going to be looking at every single one,” Ty wrote. “Seriously.”

    one of the most annoying ppl on earth
    i cant believe that some women actually listen 2 the crap this woman says
    honestly everything on her show is centered around her, even the topics she talks about
    so sad some ppl look up 2 this crazy lady

  • dfdf

    so will this one be the new oprah after the big “o” ends her show on 9/11/2011


  • emma

    obviously you dont get it… it may seem that everything she does and says centers around her, but its only because she uses her own experiences to help other people grow- her knowledge of the fashion world, the beauty industry, experiencing schooling in large urban schools, travelling the world meeting different people with different personalities/issues- she draws on that to help create awareness of different issues- how is that so bad???…beside you cant be doing EVERYTHING all wrong if you are a multiple emmy winner…think about it.

  • meh

    it’s a traditional Maori greeting. some foreigners can find it quite weird.

  • Ronda

    I love the work that Tyra does to get Women to focus on inner beauty as well. I applaud her on her efforts. Go Tyra!

  • hmm…

    although she went “natural” she is not doing much with her hair. A non-bun hairstyle would be more encouraging.

  • infamous

    can’t stand her. and it looks like she had second nose job to repair the bad first one. it was much thinner than it is now.

  • clay

    She makes $$$Millions$$$ someone is watching her shows and listening to what she says.

  • rosie

    lol at how nigel barker’s always billed as the ‘noted fashion photographer’. no escape. XD

  • xxx

    I hate how she is always banging on about inner beauty and how everyone’s beautiful or whatever and she’s had plastic surgery. I mean, come on.. she totally contradicts herself there.

  • Big Pimpin’

    tyra is a very beautiful woman, post 1st nose job. but she looks a bit old here.

  • MMA

    If only she practiced what she’s preaching!

  • Chef Coa

    Beauty is a state of mind.

  • Sarah Cutie

    Cute couple, hope they get married

  • Stone

    @Sarah Cutie: And worse yet- stay married.

    Im pretty good at picking the talented from the untalented or entertainment from genuine crap tv. Tyra is and has always been so awful that I could never watch an entire episode of anything she does including her Top Model Show. Her talk show is so bad it actually makes me depressed about how low class Tyra can go. Tyra is the modern version of a circus freak show. Tyra shows you a freak and then smiles at the camera and asks “am I a super model compared to this awful looking girl sitting here next to me? am I pretty?” to which the answer is No Tyra you are not that pretty, your mental age is about 15 and you are probably one of the most self centered Narcissistic bad actors on planet earth at the moment.
    This news that Tyra will go off the air is all good – and it’s about time.
    Thank You TV network suits
    What took you so long?

  • edenfantasys_sex_toys

    Do you know what I love in this woman? When the fat pictures of her came out she put on a bathing suit and yelled Kiss My “FAT” Ass! Any other celebrity that felt a bit insecure with herself would never have the guts to do that. Yes, she’s self-confident and crazy and I appreciate that crazyness!

  • Rich

    Yes, a gutsy woman. I loved it when she yelled “kiss my fat ass!” on national television. What a strong woman.
