Tyra Banks looks awesome at her Flawsome Ball charity event

She hasn’t looked this good in a long time. America’s Next Top Model host, Tyra Banks pulled out all the stops and sizzled at her own charity event on Thursday night held at the Capitale in New York. She wore a breathtaking show-stealing white gown that hugged her newly slimmed down curves in all the right places. The gown was elaborate with optical illusion paneling and ended with a frilly hem. In one word, she looked “gorgeous” and for once the smile was in check too. No mega-watt “Tyra smile” here but it was sweet and matched the elegant gown perfectly.

The ball was held to raise funds and awareness for The Tyra Banks TZONE Foundation and she had this to say about the worthy cause. “I launched the Tyra Banks TZONE Foundation with my own money because I feel I have a responsibility to lead by example and bring attention to the issues facing girls and women.”

She was joined by her mother Caroline who Tyra says is her inspiration. Others who turned up to show support for the event were actress Rosario Dawson, model Chanel Iman, singer Estelle and designer Genevieve Jones just to name a few famous friends. ANTM fellow judge, Rob Evans was also there to toast the event, however, Tyra has denied a relationship with the 24-year-old male model saying, “There’s been a lot of rumors that I’ve been dating certain people. Young boys. Ain’t true. I ain’t a cougar!”

Hmmm…..if you say so, Tyra. But something’s got your motor running girl. You’re looking good babe and thumbs up on a good cause.
