Tuesday, August 19, 2008

Tyra Banks held a fashion event in the streets of New York Tuesday afternoon to celebrate the recent all-black issue of Italian Vogue. The former runway diva was joined by past, present and future black models for a special taping of her daytime talk show. The episode recognized the importance of having women of color in the fashion industry.

"Young girls look at magazines and want to see a reflection of themselves and that will tell them that they exist, and that they are beautiful," Banks said, according to the UK's Channel 4. "So we need Asians, we need black, we need Latin, we need every culture represented in fashion to show that young girl that she matters, that she exists, and that she is beautiful." Banks posed for pictures with the models before releasing a bunch of balloons into the Manhattan sky. The episode is scheduled to air on September 11th.
