Bazaar Daily News

 

Tyra Banks (pictured here in 1997) says her former size 4 figure would be too big for a modeling career today. (Rose Hartman/WireImage)“When I started modeling, I used to see models who seemed unhealthy backstage at fashion shows. They appeared to be abusing their bodies to maintain a certain weight,” Banks continues in the letter. “These girls were booked over and over again for countless fashion shows and photo shoots. I’m sure many of you today have witnessed this, or even live it. Now, real progress is finally on the horizon. Vogue is stepping up, doing the right thing, and protecting that girl. Perhaps that girl is you!”
