Tyra Banks recreates swimwear photoshoot she did for Sports Illustrated 22 years after

In 1997, Tyra Banks covered Sports Illustrated magazine in a red and pink polkadot bikini. 22 years after, the model graced the same magazine, also in a red and pink polkadot two-piece bikini.

 

Sharing photo of herself on SI Swimsuit issue then and now, the 45-year-old wrote:

 

Remember the 10 year challenge every one was doing on social? The one where you posted a photo of yourself now next to a photo of yourself 10 years ago?
Well, I guess this is my @si_swimsuit 22 year challenge. Scroll the pic to see. But to me, it’s not just about what I’m looking like. It’s about what I’m FEELING like. Back then, I knew I had a plan to do more than model. I knew I wanted to make a difference. I knew I had a calling to do more than for just myself. I just didn’t know HOW I was gonna do it.
Today, 22 years later, I rise out of bed everyday to show that yes, a woman who was a model (and is now a model again!) can indeed be powerful beyond pictures. Can indeed be a strong leader in changing the world’s perceptions of narrowly defined beauty. Can indeed be an example for others to follow so I can sit back one day when I’m old and gray to enjoy the things that YOU are doing to push my mission further than I ever dreamed possible.
Yeah, my 22 year challenge has a whole ‘nother meaning beyond what you just SEE.
