Tyra Banks Transforms Into A Tiger For Internet-Breaking Cover Shoot

The supermodel put her "smizing" skills to the test.

It's her turn to break the internet.

Tyra Banks recently teamed up with Paper magazine for a sexy, animal-themed photo shoot, transforming herself into a tiger, stripes and all. The inspiration behind Ty Ty's queen of the jungle look? It actually came from the supermodel's fanbase — specifically, Tyra's pet name for her fans.

"I call my fans tigers with a 'Y' and the creative director of Paper magazine was like, 'Girl, I want to turn you into a t-y-g-e-r!'" she explained to Entertainment Tonight. "I've never done prosthetics in a glamorous way. However, I have done prosthetics for when I was turned into a man and actually when they transformed me into a man I was attracted to myself. I was like, 'Wow, I look kind of hot.'"

In addition to her #FelineVibes photo shoot, Banks also spilled some tea about America's Next Top Model, which she recently returned to after briefly handing over the hosting gig to Rita Ora.

"I stepped away, but social media was calling my name in my sleep, screaming they were pissed off at me that I deserted [the show],'" Banks said. "I needed to bring my butt back, so I did."

The 24th cycle of ANTM — which Tyra says will be "next level fierce" — is reportedly set to air in 2018.
