Tyra Launches “The Real Size” Contest. . .

“I’ve always felt it was my mission to expand the narrow perceptions of beauty; through ‘America’s Next Top Model,” says Tyra Banks about launching a Teen Plus Size Model Search.  This time around, Tyra is looking for more curvier and fabulous teens ages 13-19 to enter to win the “Fiercely Real Model Search”.  To enter, you must be between the sizes 12-20, and the winner will win a one-year contract with Millinieum modeling, a photo spread and cover photo on Tyra’s online magazine, and a spread on a popular fashion magazine.

I applaud Trya Banks effort to include all types of women, different shapes and sizes. Young teens undergo alot of insecurities involving their personal appearance and this a chance for girls who may not be able to fit into “Forever 21” or “Limited Too” a chance to exploit their beauty.  I’m excited to see what gorgeous girls come forth and embark on this contest.

With society today, the normal sizes are now between 12-16, do you feel that women should no longer be called “Plus Sized” but instead “Real Sized”? Tyra is currently doing a poll and I want to know what you think also.

If you would like to enter to win go to http://tyrashow.warnerbros.com/fun/teenmodelsearch/registration.php and submit for photos to get you started! Goodluck and spread the word!
