When celebrities take a stand a stand against body issues it can have a profound affect on the world. It’s an even more intense issue when it comes to models taking a stand against body image issues since their occupations rely upon their beauty. Tyra Banks, supermodel, tv host and creator of “America’s Next Top Model,” has made her point of view known through her tv shows and now through her speech during a promotion for her new beauty campaign. Fitceleb gives us the scoop through these touching quotes from Tyra’s speech.
“I apologise for the emotion but I am my mother’s daughter and my mama cries at everything,” she said.
The former model who gained weight and recently lost a few pounds, reminisced the day her mother was handed a list of prominent fashion designers who would no longer work with Tyra because of her weight. After handing the list to her daughter, Tyra’s mother said:
“And now we’re going to go get pizza.”
That was a defining moment for the model who swore “to be for young woman what my mother was for me.”
I don’t know one woman who doesn’t struggle with body image issues. We see a lot of negative publicity from celebrities, it’s important that we focus on the positive and get inspiration from everywhere we can. It’s a huge deal to see someone in the modeling industry admit that they have the same sturggles as everyone else, it’s also very nobel of Banks to be such a role model for women all over the world.
