‘X’ marks re­vise in Banks’ name

The Sudbury Star - - MOVIES -

Tyra Banks is mark­ing her mod­el­ling come­back by chang­ing her last name, pro­fes­sion­ally, to Banx. The 45-year-old, who be­gan work­ing as a model over two decades ago, came out of re­tire­ment to pose for the cover of the 2019 Sports Il­lus­trated swim­suit is­sue cover for the third time. “Banx with an X,” she said. “Be­cause I want me com­ing out of re­tire­ment to be big­ger than me, and for me to rep­re­sent women who say, ‘Enough of this cook­iecut­ter thing.’ As much as we’ve pro­gressed with beauty, there’s still a long way to go (when it comes to) open­ing up the door and re­defin­ing what it means.”
