Tyra Banks is looking all type of fierce on the cover of PAPER magazine!
The America’s Got Talent host transformed into a tantalizing tiger for a sizzling new shoot for the outlet’s ‘Break The Internet’ Issue.
The former supermodel looked almost unrecognizable as she slipped into an leotard whilst sporting stripes all over her face and body.
The runway star added a prosthetic nose to make her look as feline as possible. The shots were snapped by photographer Vijat Mohindra.
She named her alter-ego Ty-gra.
The mom of one also stunned in an ornate gold thong whilst wearing a nude bra blended with her striped-adorned figure.
In another snap she let her long, blonde mane cascade from her crown a solid gold collar around her neck.
The creator of America’s Next Top Model posed up a storm in a pair of black patent leather boots.
But looked more like herself in another look where she sported a stunning gold bodysuit. Instead of realistic ears, Tyra donned a shiny cat-ear headband.
In the accompanying interview, Tyra discussed leaving her role on America’s Next Top Model and subsequently returning.
She said: ‘I stepped away, but social media was calling my name in my sleep, screaming they were p****d off at me that I deserted [the show].’
‘I needed to bring my butt back, so I did. One thing I know is from studying business, they say your brand is not what you say it is, it’s what they say it is.’
‘I thought Top Model would be fine without me hosting, but the social media sphere let me know that was not the case.’
Meanwhile, Tyra was recently spotted enjoying some family time with her adorable son York, 22 months.
Mother and son were seen heading to brunch at Gjelina in the Venice Beach area of Los Angeles on Sunday morning.
The 43-year-old showcased her toned tum in a cropped sweater as they left the eatery and went on a walk around the trendy Abbott Kinney neighborhood.
Tyra’s beloved son – who turns two in January – looked adorable in a dark green sweat pants and a navy long-sleeved sweater.
The star separated from her partner of five years and father of little York, Erik Asla, in October.
Page Six reported that the split ‘came drama-free and they’re co-parenting their young son.’
