Tyra Banks Hid Weight Gain from Victoria's Secret During Her Career

Even Tyra Banks likes to eat a cheeseburger.

Tyra Banks, one of the most iconic supermodels of all time, sat down with People magazine to expose her career secrets. When discussing her career with lingerie mega-corporation, Victoria's Secret, Banks explained how she would hide her weight for shoots since she was kept under strict regulations for her appearance.
"When I would gain weight and I had a big Victoria's Secret shoot, say they wanted me to shoot the cover of the swimsuit issue, I would just make my hair bigger to make my booty look smaller. I would be like, 'I ate burgers for two months, and my a** is 10 lbs. heavier,' so I would tell my hairdresser to clip more tracks in and tease it up!"
Victoria's Secret hasn't changed at all since Banks walked their famous runway show. The company still doesn't hire curvy or plus size models and hasn't budged. Banks made one of her grandest body positivity comments on her talk show a few years ago when she said directly to the haters, "Kiss my fat ass!" Not only did she get wide media praise but it also showed the climax of her talk show career.
Banks never forgets her restrictions, "It's a funny story, but Victoria's Secret places notoriously strict limitations upon the Angels: prospective models must be 5-foot-9 with desired measurements around 34''-24''-34''.
Recently, Banks did a photoshoot where she went makeup free without any shame.
