Tyra Banks

Tyra Banks is a media personality, a model, an actress, a singer, producer, businesswoman, and entrepreneur. She is also an author. It is just not possible to say all Tyra Banks endeavors in one sentence. And it near impossible to write about the star as a whole in one blog post. In one not well-paid blog post, I would have added but the editor would delete this (editor’s note: ). In order to make this post possible, we would just start with the premise of the question of how tall is Tyra Banks?

Age and early life

Tyra was born Tyra Lynne Banks in December 1973. She was born in Inglewood, California to Carolyn London a medical photographer (didn’t know this such occupation exist before now) and a computer consultant named Donald Banks. Tyra is the second of a family of two kids. When she was aged six, her parents divorced.

Growing up, Tyra Banks was rather fat and she mentioned that her peers teased her and called her “ugly duckling” then at the age of eleven she took the matter on its horn and lost 30 pounds or 13.6 kg and grew three inches or 7.6 cm in just three months. Tyra attended John Burroughs Middle School and Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles.

Most of Tyra Banks’ growing up tales are about her early modeling career. She started modeling at the age of 15. By the age of 16, she was already modeling in Italy and the rest of Europe. By the time she was eighteen, she was already on the cover of Vogue, Elle, Vanity Magazines, etc (there cannot be a full list of all the magazines she has appeared on the cover but she was on these covers what is worthy of note is that sometimes she is the first woman of color to do this; at least once, she is the first woman to do this. There have been dozens of articles about her in German, French, Italian, Spanish, Malay, etc.

Tyra Banks is 46 years old.

How tall is Tyra Banks?

Banks is a tall woman. If we want to be dramatic we will say that she is 7 inches taller than Kim Kardashian, 3 inches taller than Cardi B and it is not just her fellow women. Tyra is two inches taller than action actor Jason Statham. And no, we will not mention Kevin Hart in order not to be accused of ridiculing anyone because he is not even the tallest person at home, so come forward, stand; Tyra Banks is three inches taller than Mrs. Kevin Hart.

Tyra Banks is 5 feet 10 in (1.78 m) and we won’t end it here. She wears the 34C bra size for a combined body stats of ‎37-24-36 in (94-61-91.5 cm); she wears a shoe size of 9 (US), a dress size of 9 (US), and weighs 64kg or 141 pounds. And she is a beautiful creature to behold.

Net worth

The richest black woman on earth has to the Nigerian businesswoman and oil tycoon Folorunso Alakija or Oprah Winfrey (they are all worth 2 billion-plus dollars and these things fluctuate a lot so it is hard to say who). This is not the only thing that is hard to ascertain. For one, I tried to get a list of the richest black women on earth and failed to as it turns out there is no such list. The richest women in entertainment list, too, is not easy to come by. But one thing that is such is that Tyra Banks is a rich woman and one of the richest female entertainers of color out there. In all the top ten richest black women lists I have come across, Serena Williams made the cut. Serena is worth around 180 million dollars.

Tyra Banks is worth 90 million dollars. She is one of the richest black entertainers on earth. And if you make it about the United States alone, Tyra Banks should hold her own among men and women in the money rank. Tyra Banks made her money modeling, acting, dancing in music videos including “Michael Jackson’s Black or White”, singing herself, writing, teaching as a guest lecturer in Stanford University, blogging, launching and owning cosmetics line, an e-commerce site, etc.
