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”
