BOOK TYRA BANKS
Tyra is known for her ongoing work in expanding the definition of beauty as well as empowering women. She speaks on a variety of subjects aimed to have positive impact. Whether it’s about her career of breaking boundaries, accomplishing goals beyond anyone's wildest imagination, being a powerful woman in business, listening to her own authentic voice, getting her education as an adult at Harvard Business School, or expanding society's definition of beauty, Tyra gives audiences relatable and inspiring lessons that they can take away from her own experiences, all with a healthy dose of humor that garners a good amount of laughs with her self-deprecating stories. Her ability to connect with people made her the role model she is today.
No one gets in without being asked. And with her untamable hair, large forehead, and gawky body, Tookie De La Crème isn’t expecting an invitation. Modelland—the exclusive, mysterious place on top of the mountain—never dares to make an appearance in her dreams.
But someone has plans for Tookie. Before she can blink her mismatched eyes, Tookie finds herself in the very place every girl in the world obsesses about. And three unlikely girls have joined her.
Only seven extraordinary young women become Intoxibellas each year. Famous. Worshipped. Magical. What happens to those who don’t make it? Well, no one really speaks of that. Some things are better left unsaid.
Thrown into a world where she doesn’t seem to belong, Tookie glimpses a future that could be hers—if she survives the beastly Catwalk Corridor and terrifying Thigh-High Boot Camp. Along the way, she learns all about friendship, courage, laughter and what it feels like to start to believe in yourself.
When you enter the fantastical world of Modelland, you'll see that Tookie was inspired by Tyra’s life as a supermodel. All those crazy and wild adventures Tookie has with her friends? Some of them were ripped straight from the headlines of Tyra’s life! Tyra knows all about beauty and fashion and fierceness, and she shares everything here in MODELLAND. It’s fun, zany, and 100 bazillion-percent Tyra.
