Tyra Banks is officially the new host of ‘Dancing With The Stars!’ Before you get your ballroom shoes back on for a new season, check out the transformations of Tyra, Naomi Campbell and more stunning models from the ’90s.
The ’90s were a wild time for fashion, accessories, and style choices, but the decade gave us some of the biggest names in the modeling industry! From Naomi Campbell to Tyra Banks and more models in between, these women showed us how to age gracefully and have stayed at the top of their game when it comes to their effortless style and classic looks. Now that Tyra is headed to a new hosting gig with Dancing With The Stars, what better time than now to take a look back at her transformation and the stunning models of the ’90s.
We cannot possibly kick off our rundown of these gorgeous famous faces without starting with Naomi Campbell. The newly-minted 50-year-old broke onto the scene as a teenager, where she landed her first cover shoot at only 15-years-old! Over the years, Naomi has worked with designers like Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Balmain, and has even gone more commercial with brands like Express and H&M.
Naomi continues to be a pioneer in the world of fashion and modeling, overcoming obstacles and being dubbed one of the most sought-after supermodels in the world! As she continues her latest business ventures, including interviewing stars like Serena Williams on her YouTube channel, Naomi is only getting started when it comes to building her empire! Although she has matured, Naomi still looks just as glowing and gorgeous as she did two decades ago!
Of course, we also have to mention one of America’s top models — Tyra Banks. In her time since making history by appearing solo as the first Black woman on the cover of Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit issue, the 46-year-old has ventured into acting with roles in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Life Size, and more. One of Tyra’s greatest accomplishments, however, was creating the reality TV series America’s Next Top Model in 2003.
Tyra hosted and was a judge on the show for over 300 episodes between 2003-2018, while also balancing her own talkshow from 2005-2011. With all of this valuable experience, Tyra will undoubtedly make for an enthusiastic host when Dancing With The Stars finally returns for its 29th season. Upon discussing her new role during her interview with Good Morning America on July 15, Tyra assured fans that “it is going to be so next level. We’re doing all this crazy stuff, taking it to the next level, but still like keeping the stuff that we know America loves,” she continued. “But you need to get ready because it’s going to be different,” she teased.
There are plenty more incredibly stunning models like Naomi and Tyra who have gone on to flourish beyond their ’90s modeling careers!
