Tyra Banks after two decades of modeling

Model Tyra Banks pauses for photographers at something called the "Broadcasting Reality: Show Me The Money!" newsmaker luncheon in Los Angeles on April 22, 2009. Tyra Banks was by then a newsmaker of long standing, having begun her modeling career two decades earlier, in 1989. Tyra Banks was born in 1973, so she turned 36 the year this photo was taken.
