The 44-year-old supermodel has admitted she had her nose surgically altered and, after years of speculation, she thinks she had a “responsibility” to tell the truth.
“I had bones in my nose that were growing and itching. I could breathe fine, but I added cosmetic surgery. I admit it! Fake hair, and I did my nose. I feel I have a responsibility to tell the truth,” she said.
The “America’s Got Talent” doesn’t have a problem with anyone who opts for surgical enhancement to feel better about their appearance.
“If you like your natural self, don’t worry about it. But if you feel insecure about something … I have a magic bag of beauty tricks to make you who you want to be. Permanent or temporary, I do not judge that …
“Fix it or flaunt it — I think women should be able to do both. There is a boundary line, either you’re supernatural or you live at the plastic surgeon.
“It’s OK to hop back and forth over that line. You want a hair weave? Fine. You want permanent eyebrows? Fine. We as women need to stop judging.”
Tyra — who has a 2-year-old son York with former partner Erik Asla — finds it particularly frustrating when “natural beauties” are judgmental of women who’ve had surgery.
She told People magazine: “Natural beauty is unfair.
“I get really uncomfortable when women who are these natural beauties judge anybody who does anything to themselves.”
The former “America’s Next Top Model” star isn’t a fan of the “no makeup” look and insists she “needs” cosmetics.
She said: “We place a lot of emphasis on that. As a model, I needed makeup. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. It leveled my playing field. Gisele, you don’t need it? I do! And we’re both modeling for Victoria’s Secret.”
