Tyra Banks is rocking her 50s by showing her fans that 50 can be totally fabulous make-up free in a series of Instagram snaps on Monday.

The supermodel’s hair was wildly curly and she wore hoop earrings and minimal to no make-up on her gorgeous, glowing face.

She captioned the post: ‘this my
?’ after telling fans last month that she was embracing her new little wrinkles.

‘I now have these little wrinkles on the corner of my mouth, and I’m kinda feelin’ them,’ she captioned a photo in which she looks at least two decades younger than 50.

The America’s Next Top Model host turned 50 in December and shared make-up free photos on Instagram in tribute to her 50 years, but prior to her big birthday, she shared her feelings about what 50 felt like to her.

‘When I was younger, 50 was old, right? It was like a grandma age or something,’ Banks said. ‘Now I look at Jennifer Lopez, I look at Halle Berry, I look at Jennifer Aniston, and I’m like, ‘What the hell is 50?’ she said. 

She revealed to the DailyMail.com what she thinks her secret to looking younger is: weight gain.

‘I do think one secret is extra weight, because I’ve not been too skinny,’ she said. ‘I think if you’re really skinny, it will age your face. So I think a bit of juice, as it keeps the face nice and juicy naturally.’

Since finding international fame as a model in the Nineties, Tyra’s body has undergone a much publicized transformation – with the supermodel happily embracing her fuller figure.

The star admitted she felt she put on ‘a ton’ of weight during the Covid pandemic, but made it clear she is in no rush to slim down.

‘[I was] just sitting around and eating, and that was the only thing to do was to eat, and that was the pleasure,’ she recalled. ‘Los Angeles had a bunch of these things where you could drive around and have those experiences in your car.’

She continued: ‘So we weren’t walking, we were doing driving experiences… I put it on during Covid, and I can get off.’

As the Smize and Dream founder continues to embrace aging, she revealed that even her partner – businessman Louis BĂ©langer-Martin – ‘loves’ the fact she now has gray hair.

She explained that getting older is a ‘privilege’ as she gushed: ‘I’ve got gray hair – I’m not showing it tonight but my man loves my gray hair.’

‘I don’t even know. I’ve even been looking in the mirror and I’m like, “Really?,”‘ she said of the experience of turning 50.

Tyra admitted she feels ‘wiser’ and believes there is ‘a little bit of a freedom’ that comes with hitting the milestone age.

In her birthday post she shared some fierce advice, writing: ‘So many fear getting older. That’s understandable. Things just aren’t the same anymore. Our bodies. Our energy. Our minds,’ she went on.

‘But I gotta say, my mind is FIERCER THAN EVER. Wise, baby. But still
 I think we have to look at aging and these big milestone years like, “I GET to be that age.” A Blessing.’
