Supermodel-turned-presenter Tyra Banks stunned the world with a make-up-free selfie last week, while calling out deceitful filter-users. “You know how people say #nofilter, but you know there’s a filter on their pic? Or maybe there’s a smidge of retouching but they’re lying and saying it’s real? Well, I decided to give you a taste of the real me. I wanted to smooth out my dark circles so badly, but I was like, ‘Naw, Ty. Show ‘em the real you.’ So, here I am. Raw. And there you are… looking at me, studying this picture,” wrote Tyra, adding, “Maybe you’re thinking, ‘Whoa, she looks rough.’ And if you are, great! You deserve to see the really real me.”
In fact, once you get over the shock of seeing a celebrity without fake eyelashes (a sighting as rare as Bigfoot these days), what’s really surprising is that this 41-year-old doesn’t have a single wrinkle. Bold, beautiful and trying to make other women feel better about themselves – Tyra is my new celeb BFF.
