Model Crush: Tyra Banks

Reuters

As Fashion Week continues in NYC, we're taking a look at the ladies that make modeling look effortless. Today, we're scoping out top model Tyra Banks.

Having been a professional in her field since the age of 16, this modeling mogul has truly done it all: Banks has appeared in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issues, served as one of the original Angels for Victoria's Secret, starred in both movies and television as an actress, created and hosted the reality television show "America's Next Top Model," and hosted her very own talk show, for which she won a Daytime Emmy in 2008.

She's also easy on the eyes. Have a look below at Tyra through the years.
