Tyra Banks' New 'Sports Illustrated' Cover Is About More Than What She Looks Like

Tyra Banks strikes a pose at the closing night party of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit On location weekend held at Mynt and MynTu on Saturday (May 11) in Miami, Fla.

The 45-year-old model and cover girl was joined by fellow cover girl Camille Kostek, Barbara Palvin, Kate Brock, Jasmine Sanders, and Olivia Culpo.

Also in attendance were Hailey Clauson, Raine Michaels, Kelsey Merritt, Anne de Paula, Halima Aden, Hunter McGrady, Samantha Hoopes, and Danielle Herrington.

The next day, Tyra shared her own spin on the 10 year challenge, involving a comparison of her first Sports Illustrated cover and her now, in the same bikini.

“Remember the 10 year challenge every one was doing on social? The one where you posted a photo of yourself now next to a photo of yourself 10 years ago?” Tyra wrote on Instagram. “Well, I guess this is my @si_swimsuit 22 year challenge. Scroll the pic to see. But to me, it’s not just about what I’m looking like. It’s about what I’m FEELING like. Back then, I knew I had a plan to do more than model. I knew I wanted to make a difference. I knew I had a calling to do more than for just myself. I just didn’t know HOW I was gonna do it.”

“Today, 22 years later, I rise out of bed everyday to show that yes, a woman who was a model (and is now a model again!) can indeed be powerful beyond pictures. Can indeed be a strong leader in changing the world’s perceptions of narrowly defined beauty. Can indeed be an example for others to follow so I can sit back one day when I’m old and gray to enjoy the things that YOU are doing to push my mission further than I ever dreamed possible,” she added. “Yeah, my 22 year challenge has a whole ‘nother meaning beyond what you just SEE. #BanX”

Halima Aden Makes History as First Muslim Model to Wear a Hijab & Burkini in 'Sports Illustrated' Swimsuit Issue!

Halima Aden is making history in the 2019 issue of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, out on May 8.

The 21-year-old model and activist is the first hijab-wearing model featured in the issue.

On being featured:SI Swimsuit has been at the forefront of changing the narrative and conversation on social issues and preconceived notions. I’m hoping this specific feature will open doors up for my Somali community, Muslim community, refugee community and any other community that can relate to being different.”

On making history: “This feature is proving that a fully covered hijab wearing model can confidently stand alongside a beautiful woman in a revealing bikini and together they can celebrate one another, cheer each other on, and champion each other’s successes.”

On her heritage: “Young Muslim women need to know that there is a modest swimsuit option available to them so they can join the swim team, participate in swim class at school, and go with their friends to the beach. Muslim girls should feel confident taking that step and doing so comfortably while wearing a burkini.”

Irina Shayk, Camila Morrone, & More Celebrate H&M's New Conscious Exclusive Collection!

Irina Shayk poses for a cute photo with fellow model Camila Morrone while attending the launch party for H&M’s Conscious Exclusive collection on Wednesday (March 27) in Los Angeles.

Also in attendance at the party were Dakota Fanning, Rowan Blanchard, Abigail Spencer, Amber Valletta, Alek Wek, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Inanna Sarkis, and Halima Aden.

The new Conscious Exclusive collection explores the healing power of nature, while also embracing innovation with sustainable materials and processes for a more sustainable fashion future. The collection launches on April 11.

“For me, as a fashion model, it’s really important to see that they care about mother nature,” Irina told THR about the new line. “We live in the 21st century and the technology is amazing, so you can see all those pieces are still cool and colorful and fashionable. … We all know what’s going on in the world — climate change — and look how many tons of plastic get dumped in the ocean and how many animals’ lives get hurt by it.”

FYI: Emmanuelle is wearing an n:philanthropy tee.
