Tyra Banks isn’t perfect — she’s flawsome.

The supermodel dazzles on the cover of Armenia’s Cosmopolitan this month. Donning a gold hip-hugging bandage dress, the sexy America’s Top Model host shows off her signature curves.

“Loving yourself is paramount, no matter what shape, size or color you are,” Banks told South Africa’s Cosmopolitan magazine this month. “I call it being flawsome: you + your flaws + awesome = flawsome.”

This isn’t the first time the top model has spoken out about the importance of having a healthy body image — and her flawsome mantra.

“This is who I am! I’m Tyra Banks and I have cellulite!” she recently told Us Weekly.

“That makes me ‘flawsome’ because I own it as part of what makes me unique. Don’t get me wrong: I don’t think my cellulite is beautiful, but I think it’s ‘flawsome.’”
