This means I still have time to get in the best shape of my life. Tyra Banks retired 13 years ago, but she decided to put her swimsuit back on to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2019 Swimsuit edition. And she looks AMAZING.
Tyra Banks was the first black woman to grace the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition in 1997 solo, and now she's doing it again for the 2019 cover. The black is not cracking! pic.twitter.com/szVDY331Rv

Tyra’s first solo cover was back in 1997. She told Buzzfeed, “This is a new me, this is an older me, this is a thicker me, this is a wiser me.” YASSSSSSSSSSS girl.
She also told ET what she would tell her younger self. “I would say, ‘Tyra I know you’re really, really driven, buts sit you a** down,'” she said. “Sit down, take some time, go to the spa, chill at the movies with your friends, don’t just run in and out. Success is important, but also (so is) the balance of taking it all in.”
