Tyra Banks is commemorating herself for being the first African American supermodel to appear solo on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition by donning the same red polka dot bikini she wore 10 years ago.
Tyra on the swimsuit's adjustments: "I was about 140 pounds on that cover ... and I'm 161 now. I'd say I looked like a stripper when I put it on. They covered the sides of my chest so that it wasn't so much hangin' out. They put some extenders on the sides of the bikini bottom so it fit.
I think there's more power in embracing what I am now and showcasing that. I'm thinking that I should probably do this every 10 years. So, in 2017 maybe I'll get in the swimsuit again and I'll have to get them to add a little more fabric."
