“This is a chance for you to be seen by ME!” says Banks at Tyra.com. “Forget about those long lines, and just send ‘em right here. I will be looking at ALL of your pictures and choosing the girl that’s going to fly to California to be on Top Model!
“I wanna see all of you! From the Fiercely Real (ya know, plus sized) to the ’’traight’ (skinny) models, just doin’ your thang.”
Women aged 18 to 27 who are 5ft 7in or taller are advised to send four photos of themselves in a swimsuit to be considered for the competition. Banks will post the winning photos on her Web site.
Meanwhile, Cycle 14 of the series premieres March 10 on The CW.
