Tyra Banks opens up in her new memoir ‘Perfect Is Boring,’ reveals that she had plastic surgery on her nose early in her career.
While promoting her book, she tells PEOPLE magazine:
“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.”
Banks also states that the “no make-up” life isn’t her.
“As a model, I needed make-up. 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.”
By being transparent, Banks wants to start honest conversations about looks and beauty.
“If you like your natural self, don’t worry about it. But, if you feel insecure about something… I have a magic bag of beauty tricks to make you who you want to be. Permanent or temporary, I do not judge.”
She believes women should stop judging each other.
“There is a boundary line — either you’re super natural or you live at the plastic surgeon. It’s okay to hop back and forth over that line,” Banks said. “You want a hair weave? Fine. You want permanent eyebrows? Fine. We as women need to stop judging.”
