"GMA" BEAUTIES: Gabrielle Union Makes YBF Folks Aware Of Skin Disease + Tyra Banks Condemns Anoerexic Models

Tyra Banks is taking on the fashion industry and condemning their use of anorexic & too thin models.  After her open letter thanking VOGUE magazine for taking the leap into banning those unhealthy models from their magazine, she hit up the morning show circuit to give her supermodel take on it.

 

Check out her gorgeous pics & video inside, plus actress Gabrielle Union taking on the cause of Melanoma on "Today Show"...

Tyra explained that after her own experience of being told she was "too fat" at a size 4 when she was a teen, she and her mom figured out a way to make her curves work for her.

She's spoken out in an open letter at The Daily Beast saying, she praises VOGUE for taking a stance, and also calls for more to create a guild to protect models, as well as moms and society to create a world for young girls to flourish as they are.  Part of her letter reads:

I would love for models to be protected by a guild. Even when I was a teen model, I didn’t think it was fair that I had to enter the acting world to get insurance. When I went to Paris after graduating high school, I saw a model who was 12 years old without any supervision. That wouldn’t happen in the acting world. There needs to be more industrywide protections for models, and we need to be more consistent with what the acting world does: protect our minors, as well as the health and well-being of models.

To young girls everywhere, it’s sad that our bodies go in and out of style, just like fashion trends. One season we’re supposed to be a zero, and the next you’re supposed to be a six. Then you’re supposed to have a six-pack, but wait, now you’re supposed to be juicy ... with a booty! It makes us feel crazy. Many of you are saying, “What the heck am i supposed to be?” Exactly who you are right now: that’s who you need to be.

Flawsome.

And also at ABC studios for "GMA" this morning, Think Like A Man actress Gabrielle Union rocked a red lace Shoshanna dress (with blue underlay) and Summersina Louboutin sandals for her appearance:

The fab chick was on the show to promote skin disease prevention, detection & awareness alongside Dr. Doris Day.   Gabby discussed that even YBF folks are susceptible to skin disease.  She's a Neutrogena brand ambassador for a reason.  Check out her segment below:

Tyra you need to find

Tyra you need to find something else to talk about to be relevant and go tone up your body especially your legs honey! Take off that weave and you look crazy with that big ass forehead you and rihanna look hideous if you ask me. Put makeup on an ape and he's cute. As for rihanna all baby monkeys are cute and then they just turn ugly.

Same old boring Gabby w/ no

Same old boring Gabby w/ no sense of style. I'm YAWNING just typing about her. I really don't think Tyra looks too thin here. For a min there a lot of black/hispanic females were trying to be thick like Jlo and Beyonce Tyra included but realized that thick look that those 2 have don't look good on everyone's body type. I think Tyra looks good instead of trying to maintain a size 4 like she use to be she tries to maintain a 7/8 which is good for her height and all. Being that we know Tyra has her own hair meaning she not bald headed like some females that wear weave her hair should look a lot better than this. Her stylist should know how to blend her real hair w/ the weave to give it a more natural look. This looks like clamp on hair and the weave looks super dry & rough. All and all Tyra looks good for 39! I hope she can find a good man like her friend Kimora did.

Melanoma is not a skin

Melanoma is not a skin "disease" It is CANCER. Skin Cancer. This headline makes you look stupid.

Tyra looks gorgeous no

Tyra looks gorgeous no denying that, I just think its kinda weird that shes talking about stopping eating disorders when she's thinner than I've seen her in years

Tyra needs to admit she

Tyra needs to admit she suffered from an eating disorder. She wasn't a stick by any means. Then, out of nowhere, Tyra looked emaciated. She needs to stop criticizing young women who are losing soooo much weight (Eva Pigford was one) just to be able to compete on ANTM in hopes of becoming a model. As for Gabby, she looks stunning! She has always maintained her weight. Love her look from head-to-toe. Tyra should take notes.

Didn't she just go through a break up? Stress causes weight loss and other things, doesn't mean she has any kind of eating disorder herself.

Love Tyra's hair color! Someone please tell me what color that is? And Tyra and my cousin Gabby our fabulous. And what an empowering message Trya is giving to young women!... Haters have a seat. It amazes me the constant hate I see in the YBF comments thread. If you have nothing nice to say, don't say it at all. Good day :)
