Tyra Banks Style Evolution during Last Decade

 

As the first black model to grace the covers of GQ and Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, Tyra Banks solidified her legacy early on. With countless runways, print campaigns (remember that sexy milk mustache for Got Milk?), commercials, and a turn as one of Victoria’s Secret’s ultra-sexy angels under her belt, there’s no arguing the fact that Tyra’s supermodel status is well deserved.

Now, we know her best as Top Model-turned-talk show host and author — and of course, the woman who taught us all how to “smize” like a pro. In honor of the utterly fierce Miss Banks’s birthday, we’re celebrating with her stylish evolution. Click through for 10 of her most memorable fashion moments, and join us in wishing Tyra a very happy birthday.
