Tyra Banks to mark S.I. cover milestone

By RobotGod     Feb 14, 2007 in Entertainment
Tyra Banks marks a modeling milestone next week, and is donning a decade-old bikini to celebrate the special anniversary.
Ten years ago, Banks became the first black supermodel to appear alone on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. The 2007 edition, which has a music theme, features 25-year-old singer and "Dreamgirls" actress Beyonce on the cover wearing a yellow-and-pink bikini.
Sports Illustrated said Beyonce is the first nonmodel/nonathlete to appear as the main subject on the cover of the swimsuit issue.
The inside of the magazine features scantily clad models posing with Kanye West, Aerosmith,
Kenny Chesney, Gnarls Barkley and Panic! At the Disco. A five-page spread featuring model Anne Vyalitsyna was shot at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland.
Great news for Tyra. For all women in fact. After her recent controversy, this shows that she is in fact still amazing and NOT FAT. She has a bit of meat on her bones and that rocks. I applaud SI for doing this. I see many postive trends like this lately and I love it. Women are all beautiful and we should celebrate normalcy, not skin and bones.
