Tyra Banks: Strike the Pose

Tyra Banks: Strike the Pose on

Photographer Marcus Gaab Captures the Former Supermodel Channeling Crazy Chic

Supermodel, TV personality and newly published author Tyra Banks stars as the body-popping, face-pulling subject of Marcus Gaab’s new fashion short for the latest issue of I Love You Magazine. Transformed into an empowered jitterbug with flat-top hair, yolk-yellow eye shadow and an unashamedly 80s wardrobe, Banks danced spontaneously and made off-the-cuff emotive declarations of love (and hate!) in the low Los Angeles light.

“I just told her to perform, do her thing and to stop when she felt like,” says Gaab. “But she didn’t stop, she kept on voguing. There was no rehearsal; she invented the whole thing while we were there.”

Best known as the sassy and energetic host of guilty pleasure America’s Next Top Model and her self-titled chat show that ended in 2009, beneath the caricature Banks is a shrewd business woman, running a successful production company, attending Harvard Business School, and boasting a built-in brand that eclipses most ex-supermodels.
“When I was a little girl and went to Disneyland, I didn’t know that all this was from Walt Disney,” said Banks, revealing her surprising idol. “That’s what I want to be. Me being behind the scenes, the business woman, creating new stars, products, projects.”
