Tyra Banks Takes TOP MODEL to ASIA



If you have followed fashion closely over the past few years without a doubt you have noticed the wave of Asian models that are the new coveted faces of the industry such as Liu Wen, Du Juan, Ming Xi, Shu Pei, and Fei Fei Sun. Now supermodel/mogul Tyra Banks, who obviously has her finger directly on the pulse of fashion, is taking her highly successful Top Model franchise to the continent rich on untapped talent. On Sunday the supermodel clad in a lime wrap dress and nude platform sandals, met with the press and sat down to give insight to the gems she plans to find on the show.

“Our Asian girls are ready to kick some American tail,” said Tyra Banks on Sunday morning at a press conference in Singapore to promote “Asia’s Next Top Model,”

Now in its 19th cycle, the successful TV franchise has launched international spinoffs around the world, with local versions in Asian countries including China, South Korea, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam.


“Asia’s Next Top Model” will be the first version with a pan-regional scope and will be broadcast in English.
Singapore-based model Nadya Hutagalung is set to host the show, while Singaporean fashion director Daniel Boey, Canadian fashion photographer Todd Anthony Tyler and Philippine model and TV host Joey Mead-King will be co-judges.



Ms. Banks also spoke out in support of diversity in the fashion industry, saying that she considers herself “curvy.” “I created ‘America’s Next Top Model’ to expand the definition of beauty,” she said, adding that it was important to her to have “plus-size” models on the show (though she prefers the term “fiercely real”).
