Not all heroes wear capes!
Tyra Banks was aspiring model Tayana Ali's literal fairy God-mother after she hopped out of her car to help the young lady, who was in the middle of a curbside photo shoot, outside of BeautyCon LA. The legendary supermodel shared details about her random act of kindness to Instagram Tuesday (August 13) when she posted her favorite shot from the impromptu shoot.
"When you go to @beautycon and you’re in your car leaving but you see a photo shoot happening that is kind of going in the wrong direction. What else do you do but put on your Super/Model/Hero cape, jump out of the car, grab the camera from the photographer and start clicking," Tyra explained in the photo's caption. "Maybe one day I’ll jump out of the car to capture YOU. #TyraTaughtMe."
The America's Next Top Model creator, who's known for mentoring a model or two (totally an underestimate) over the years, didn't just take control of the photo shoot, she used it as a teaching moment for both the aspiring model and her photographer. "By the way, after five minutes of a quick lesson, the young photographer took some amazing photos of this sweet orange-eyed beauty," Tyra added. "This pic is mine, but the framing of his shots became really good! Check her page for the photos between the motor home vans!@tatyanaalii."
Tayana also gushed about the once-in-a-lifetime moment on Instagram, captioning a photo of Tyra taking pictures of her on her iPhone, "Soo today THEEE TYRA BANKS got out of her car to take photos of me. BASICALLY this is most iconic moment in my life 🖤. Quick question though Tyra, can you just sign me ? 🥺 Photo credits:@tyrabanks."
