Super Model Tyra Banks returned to the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit after 22 years later

Tyra Banks has returned to the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit at the age of 45 - 22 years after she made history as the first black model to land the honor of posing on the front of the famed publication.

The supermodel, who made her debut in the publication 26 years ago, stars on one of three covers released by the magazine on Wednesday - sharing the role of 2019 cover girl with model and Instagram star Camille Kostek, 27, girlfriend of NFL star Rob Gronkowski, and soccer star Alex Morgan, 29.


Tyra came out of modeling retirement in order to do the shoot for the magazine - during which she actually recreated her original cover shot, posing in a replica of the pink polka-dot bikini that she first modeled 22 years ago - and she admitted that the experience of doing a second cover after more than two decades was 'crazy'. 

'My first [cover] was 22 years ago, how crazy is that?' she said during an appearance on GMA, where the covers were revealed. 'I’m like damn — I’m 45 dog!
