Rebecca Cam, a writer for The New Zealand Herald, says that super model and TV show host Tyra Banks isn’t the role model for young women that she claims to be. Cam argues that even as Tyra tells girls that they don’t have to be perfect, she doesn’t dare present herself as anything less than perfect in her poses and television appearances.
Cam referred to an Instagram photo taken by Banks, in which she made the perfect pose to maximize her thinness, did her make up to a tee and had her hair done by a celebrity stylist.
It’s just an Instagram photo. But it encapsulates perfectly the contradiction that is Tyra Banks: a hyper critical model-groomer who reinforces the ideals she pretends to fight.
