Tyra Banks OK! Magazine Woman Of The Year 2007

Talk show goddess Tyra Banks has been selected as OK! Magazine’s Woman Of The Year.

The 34-year-old beauty recently sat down with OK! to talk exclusively about her love life, being a role model, and her infamous figure.

“I love my curves,” Tyra tells OK!. “I’ve made millions of dollars with this body.”

“An average American woman is size 12 or 14,” she explains to OK!. “So if I look like a 10 or 12 in a picture and someone says I look disgusting, are they saying the majority of America is disgusting? That made me really upset, and that’s why I decided to fight back.”

“Right now, there are some great things happening,” Tyra, who works out four days a week by boxing and running, says. “There’s America Ferrera, Jennifer Hudson, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and myself: women who have curves. But I still feel like this skinny image is heralded. It’s very confusing for young girls.”
