Tyra Banks kicked off Variety’s inaugural women’s summit Path to Parity today in West Hollywood, Calif., where she spoke about body shaming in the fashion industry, retiring from modeling, sexual harassment and what she’s learned from her many business ventures.
The current host of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” donned a white-hot, curve-hugging lacy dress paired with a beige blazer, a chunky bird necklace and pointy embellished power pumps for the occasion. The shoe style added a notable pop of color to her ensemble with coral stud detailing and shiny gold accents.
In her sit-down with Variety’s Cynthia Littleton, the 44-year-old Daytime Emmy winner shared that her drive to become her own boss stemmed from the rejection she often faced as a result of her skin color and curvier figure. “Me being a boss came from pain,” she said. “Being told no you can’t.”
Those experiences “created in me an empathy for women and physical discrimination,” Banks added.
