Even Janice called, "You weren't in Vogue that much".

Her best career accomplishments were her early runway work (which doesn't make her that special really), and nailing CoverGirl and VS campaigns. That hardly makes her a super.

But let her tell it, she was one of the most popular high fashion models ever.
You know it, I see you are not someone who is blind sided, hasn't done their research or has delusions of grandeur.

Tyra Banks is a supermodel. Even Fashion Television says so.

^Delusions of grandeur. Many, including myself aren't/wont be convinced, and Sepia summed it up.

A majority of people outside of the industry recognize these individuals as supermodels. Your opinions won't make a huge change or impact. It's a fact.

The public is misinformed. VS markets all their girls as "supermodels"

Yes they are. BTW, what VS is doing is just business(which includes hype/selling) which equals an edge,money & attention. Something I've seen for years and are learning more about in my studies.

Neither are you or these girls, thank you. They're already being left out of the books/documentaries/things that when last and this includes Tyra,Heidi,etc. Boy if it wasn't for TV she would almost never be mentioned(which is very small if she is anyway).

I hate to say it Mr. Flip, but even the people on Urban Dictionary agree with us, and most of them are not fashion experts


Contrary to popular belief, a supermodel is not just any prominent model. There are only five: Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Claudia Schiffer. These are the models who ruled the fashion industry in the 1990s with outrageous contract demands and failed though financially rewarding attempts at acting and singing; the era of the supermodel is over. Prominent models are known as "powermodels" and include Tyra Banks, Kate Moss, Gemma Ward, Heidi Klum, Gisele Bundchen and the like.

Tyra, and the likes are Supermodels. Even Tyra says so. Even Janice Dickinson said Tyra was the last of the great supermodels.
