It’s hard to believe that Tyra Banks was rejected by 4 different modelling agencies when she began her career at the tender age of 15. Since that time, she rose to stardom on the runway for Victoria’s Secret, Elle, Dolce & Gabbana, Vogue, Yves Saint Laurent, and well… every other big name fashion brand out there.

Perhaps her biggest claim to fame was becoming the first African-American woman to appear on the Sports Illustrated cover in 1997.

An impressive woman who was able to overcome bullying and self-image issues early on in life, boasts one of the world’s most infamously sexy bodies. What else do we love Tyra banks for? Oh yes, her role as Jackie on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air!
