Tyra Banks had no problem fitting into her dress for a Harper’s Bazaar party held in her honor at Highbar in NYC on Sept. 3.
“I’m still 160 pounds,” Tyra said proudly. “I want to be healthy.”
After an unflattering picture of the 5-foot-10 former supermodel on the beach surfaced in 2006, Tyra was attacked for packing on the pounds. But she’s making sure there isn’t a repeat of that unfortunate incident. “I think my weight’s just redistributed,” Tyra, 34, says of her curvy shape these days. “I kayak. I go to dance class. I run around a lot at Jackie O’s Reservoir [in NYC’s Central Park]. So I’ve been doing a lot of cross-training, but it hasn’t changed the number on the scale. I’m between 159 and 162.”
And that’s a number she’s happy with. “I want to be fit,” says Tyra. “Always!”
