Tyra Banks Shows Off Curvy Bikini Body in Mexico (PHOTOS)


America's favorite Top Model – Tyra Banks – proved that she can still stop traffic with her bangin' body when she flaunted her curves in a skimpy purple bikini during a romantic vacation with her boyfriend earlier this week.

While her supermodel peers were either getting married (Kate Moss) or attending star-studded royal weddings (Naomi Campbell in Monaco), Tyra spent her holiday weekend South of the Border with banker boyfriend John Utendahl. Wearing a bright purple bandeau two-piece, the 37-year-old retired model enjoyed a dip in a Jacuzzi with her longtime beau.

The TV host has been criticized over the years for gaining weight. In 2006, Tyra was mocked for her fuller figure after photos of her in a bathing suit appeared on the cover of several magazines. Tyra later went on her talk show, The Tyra Show, and infamously slammed her critics:

To all of you who have something nasty to say to me or to women built like me. I have one thing to say to you: Kiss my fat a**!
Tyra later revealed to People that her weight has fluctuated between 148 and 162 pounds since she quit modeling in 2005.

    why are you getting into such a fuss about it, just drop it! I think it's tyra, Don Hendrick is in doubt, and missmodel thinks Don is stupid so let's just leave it at that. >=(

    yeah, she had her day as an amazing model but now that she doesn't do it as much and she has the right to relax and enjoy the stuff she couldn't when she was younger. So, rock on tyra, you're still #1 in my book!

    She's fat compared to who? Today's models? Oh come on those are not even real women, they're sticks with hair. The woman is 37 not 15 and guess what she's around the healty weight she should be for her age and body type. If you really think she's fat means you need a reality check, trust you'll cry when you realise that what you see on tv is all fake.

    I mean, it's a little hard to argue that she hasn't let herself go when she used to look like this: [img]http://www.celebuzz.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/05/tyra banks SI cover-340_442.jpg[/img]

    By the standards of our media and Hollywood, yes she IS "fat" and so am I. But I only judge by MY standards, and I think she looks fine. Exercise and eat right to BE healthy, NOT appear stick-like.

    I sure would like to see what the people look like, who are calling her fat. Some people get enjoyment from cutting others down. It must make them feel better about themselves, very sad and pathetic!!!

    it never said it she was at the beach or outside!?!?!? and are you realy suggesting that she or 'they' paid for someone else, the same colour and physique as Tyra, wearing the same thing as Tyra, to pose with a sunhat pretending to be Tyra?????

  • Kathie

    Tyra is not fat!!! It is amazing how you can hide behind your computer screen and talk about someone else. Are you to scared to show the world how ugly you are and scared of the comments someone would make about you? Tyra doesn't need to change a thing about her, too bad I can't tell you all the things you need to change considering you are to scared to show your face.

    If you look at the photos closely you,ll notice that these shots were not taken outdoors and not at the beech and in some of these photos she is wearing a sun hat where you can,t tell if its Tyra or not as the hat hides the face & all the photos are taken indoors in a suana room with a sunlight above & hidden from view.

  • Don Hendrick
