Super Model and Media Mogul Tyra Banks covers the December 2012 issue of COSMOPOLITAN South Africa where she is glamorous in a Herve Leger gold dress, a corset by The Blonds and jewelry from CC Skye, Judith Haas and Campbell.

The photo shoot was captured by  celebrity photographer Udo Spreitzenbarth. Ms. Banks share her thoughts on body image and offers advice on the modeling business.

On societal pressures for body image:
“Loving yourself is paramount, no matter what shape, size or color you are. I call it being flawsome: you + your flaws + awesome = flawsome.”

On starting out in the modeling business:
“Don’t chase the money, chase the passion.”
