Tyra Banks has revealed that she got a nose job early in her career.
In her upcoming book, Perfect Is Boring, the model mogul gets real about natural beauty, writing, “I had bones in my nose that were growing and itching. I could breathe fine, but I added cosmetic surgery. I admit it! Fake hair and I did my nose. I feel I have a responsibility, to tell the truth.”
Speaking with People, the TV personality also spoke candidly about women who judge other women. “Natural beauty is unfair,” she told the publication. “I get really uncomfortable when women who are these natural beauties judge anybody who does anything to themselves.”
Banks also touched on the “no makeup” trend, telling People, “We place a lot of emphasis on that. As a model, I needed makeup. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. It leveled my playing field. Gisele, you don’t need it? I do! And we’re both modeling for Victoria’s Secret.”
The model adds, “Fix it or flaunt it — I think women should be able to do both. There is a boundary line, either you’re supernatural or you live at the plastic surgeon. It’s okay to hop back and forth over that line. You want a hair weave? Fine. You want permanent eyebrows? Fine. We as women need to stop judging.”
