How old is Tyra Banks? Tyra is 38 years old—amazing, given how great she looks. On December 4, 2012, she’ll turn 39. Tyra started modeling at the age of 15, and while that makes her a showbiz pro, the supermodel, actress, and “America’s Next Top Model” host hardly looks like a grizzled vet.

At the age of 38, Tyra Banks isn’t the oldest of the supermodels. Cindy Crawford is 39. Linda Evangelista is 47. Beverly Johnson, who paved the way for Tyra by becoming the first black supermodel, is 59.

Tyra can still get younger guys. In June 2012, she was linked to Robert Evans, a 24-year-old boxer-turned-model slated to appear as a judge on “America’s Top Model.” Prior to Evans, Banks was rumored to be dating Canadian hip-hop star Drake.

While aging is dangerous in Banks’ line of work, Tyra was once quoted as saying, “A smart model is a good model.” The California beauty has followed that paradigm throughout her career, branching into other avenues of entertainment and retaining her relevance, even if she no longer struts down the catwalk.
