Tyra Banks Is Skipping the "Plastic Surgery Stuff" Ahead of Turning 50

Getting older has also made Tyra wiser, as she noted she’s particular about who she works with and what projects she takes on. 

“I don’t have the body I used to have when I was on runways, and so to have these clothes fit me like this, it’s rare to have a tailored piece look good on curves,” she described of recently starring in designer Karen Millen‘s new campaign. “I feel empowered.”

Being picky about where her time and energy are spent is one of the reasons she’s not afraid to shake things up. After all, earlier this year, Tyra announced her departure from co-hosting Dancing With the Stars after three seasons.

“I feel it’s time for me to really focus on my business and entrepreneurship, but also producing more TV behind the scenes,” she told TMZ in March. “I think it’s time to graduate from the dance floor to the stock market floor.”

She added, “You’ll see me creating things, not just hosting.”
