Ty Ty Baby is addressing some modelling drama after Stephanie Seymour said Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid were ‘bitches of the moment’ for the modelling industry — but in true Tyra style – she’s making it about HER!
18 years old. Backstage at some grand fashion show. In Europe. France? Italy? Can’t remember.
But what I DO remember is that even though I may look self-assured and confident, there was a lot of pain in my heart. There were roadblocks and people who wanted to halt my success, but the fire in my heart and support of my mother kept me going.
If I could talk to my 18-year-old self, I’d tell her that she will grow up and be a voice for all models. For all women. That she will have a responsibility to speak up when she sees things going awry. When she sees women that are sisters having conflict, she must be bold. She must be unafraid. She must speak out.
And she must do it today.
And I will.
Oh, I’m ready hon! If you want to read Tyra’s full LETTER about a war between “Supermodels” then find it after the jump!
And she’s turning up the sensual acting vibes to 101%! Check out K-Stew‘s newest FASHUN ad above!
We love it! Their fellow Benton Harbor, MI classmates probably don’t get the reference, but it doesn’t matter. Comedy and total glamour at its finest!
We would! — Trans model Laith Ashley covers ‘Attitude Magazine’ made history as the first F2M trans model to cover Attitude this month!
On his struggles/accepting himself:
“I would self-destruct, I would disappear because I didn’t want to be here. For a long time I prayed to God to let me die. I’d think I hate life, hate being trans, hate the world. I was very negative. I still struggle with that from time to time but remind myself I’m pretty blessed. I have a family who [is] supportive. They may not agree with who I am, but they do love me. I had the privilege of going to school. I have the privilege of this experience. I love who I see in the mirror now.”
On Internet trolls:
“People were really nasty for about three weeks. I just couldn’t stop reading the comments. I knew I shouldn’t have, but I kept reading and the more I read, the worse the comments got. I’ve learned that you can’t please everyone.”
Congrats to Laith, and to many more covers!
Every look he nails impeccably! All you need is your local convenience or hardware store and you too could get this glamour for less!
