Body by Tyra Banks: Then & Now

The supermodel speaks out to PEOPLE about her weight and her changing look since the runway days

'SPORTS' APPEAL

The first African-American model to land the cover of the coveted Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, Banks graces the cover a second time in 1997. During the shoot, "I thought I was big; I remember thinking, 'Oh my gosh, my breasts are getting bigger, my hips,'" recalls Banks. "Then the pictures came out (and were great), and I felt insane."
