    Banks officially retired from modeling via her talk show today. Her intention to retire has not been a secret, especially with a high profile final gig like the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (to air on CBS on December 6) and her television production endeavors, but a send off was more than appropriate for her 14 years in the industry, breaking barriers and turning heads. With shots like this:

    she will be remembered and missed. [​IMG]

    I remember her in an interview some years ago saying that her breast were real but that her hair was fake.

    I cannot stand fake breasts, and those do not look fake. If they are, she was reasonably big to begin with. That's the only way silicone can look decent, and hers look more than decent.

    I saw the Tyra Show in which she had the sonogram of her breasts. When she removed her bra from beneath her shirt it was pretty clear from that alone the bra was doing the work (i.e. her breasts weren't self-supporting).

    Didn't she show something like an MRI to demonstrate that it was real breast tissue?

    She did three things:

    1. Removed her bra to show support and movement.
    2. Had the plastic surgeon from Extreme Makeover do a touch test (nice work if you can get it).
    3. Was adminstered a sonogram by the doctor's assistant. A woman next to her with implants was also given the sonogram and the doctor explained the difference in the images. He then stated Banks does not have implants and her breasts are natural.

    you know, it IS possible for a girl to have above a B cup and have them be real. a hot girl + lots of money + big boobs doesnt automatically mean implants. but i think it helps some guys to think that.

    I never quite understood why people readily questioned Tyra's endowments, but not Heidi Klum's? [​IMG]

    I'm not sure about this statement either.

    The assumption that they're fake is natural. [​IMG]

    But I have to say that if those are natural, regardless of the great bra, then she's really a phenomenon. The size that models have to maintain for the runway or in print leaves their body fat percentage in the basement...which includes breast tissue. This happens to extremely fit female athletes too. (That's not to say that models are in "shape" per se, they just have to be really thin.) If she were to walk, unknown, into a modeling agency today she'd likely be told to lose 20 to 30 pounds.

    That's why most high fashion models look like 12 year old boys to me...sickly thin...no chest. What's sexy about that? (Outside of the clergy, that is [​IMG] )

    Tyra's modeling when a different direction when she started getting curvier (and supposedly when she got tired of the Naomi Campbell drama), hence the move from high fashion to the Victoria's Secret and SI gigs. She has said many times she likes her fried chicken and I don't think any of us have a problem with that [​IMG].

    reason for what, it helping guys to think that?

    i have no idea, i saw it in the lindsay lohan thread too, guys assumed, for no reason, she had implants. i'm not saying she didnt, but their reasoning was illogical, saying she was too young to have boobs that big. after she lost all that weight, lohan was nearly flat chested. i'd like to hear from the guys who said she 'definitely' had implants now.

    my girlfriend is a high school teacher and the drama club advisor, and i was a chaperone on a trip to nyc to see rent...according the logic of some guys, half of the female drama club must have implants. and they probably range from 14-18.

    i'm sure lots of these models and actresses, but the blanket statement that (bigBoobies == implants) doesnt always work.

    i didnt think tyra banks' body type was included in the 'very low body fat' category, i've always thought she had a healthy body type. and trust me, i really looked [​IMG] same with gisele bundchen and heidi klum. if kate moss had those boobs, then i'd say she was a phenomenon. with exceptional balance.

    "A woman with more forehead then most bald guys. "

    Agreed, but she's small compared to Mena Suvari[​IMG]
