Must read

Nearly 30 years later, Tyra Banks remains an important part of Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue legacy.

The supermodel, 50, served a busty look in a chic pantsuit as she celebrated the 60th anniversary issue on Thursday at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City.

She sizzled in a black double-breasted jacket, which featured fuchsia lapels and matching  buttons.

Banks wore only a black bra under the jacket, finishing the ensemble with a pair of black pointed pumps. 

The America’s Next Top Model star looked gorgeous in a sparkling blue smoky eye, framed by a wavy, voluminous hairstyle.

She posed on the red carpet with photographer and longtime friend Yu Tsai, who shot this year’s covers.

Banks appears on SI’s 60th anniversary Swimsuit Issue cover with the likes of Martha Stewart, Gayle King, Christie Brinkley, Jessica Simpson, Chrissy Teigen, Kate Upton, Leyna Bloom and more.

SI previously teased the shoot in March, for which they reunited 29 of their former cover models. 

The Life-Size actress shared a behind-the-scenes video of herself posing for the shoot, reminiscing about her first time on the cover.

’28 years ago, I made history by being the 1st Black model to grace the cover of @si_swimsuit,’ she wrote in the caption.

‘And today, I am honored to be called a LEGEND and ICON on this year’s 60th Anniversary cover,’ added Banks.

She also posed a question to her 7.2 million Instagram followers: ‘When you’re older, what do YOU hope to be a legend for?’

Banks later shared some sexy snapshots from her hotel room as she sported the gold metallic wrap dress with a thigh-high leg slit, which she wore on the new cover. 

‘The after party in my hotel room post the @si_swimsuit cover shoot! It was LIT!!! (Just me and my [heart emoji] and some @netflix.)’ she captioned the photos.

After celebrating her milestone 50th birthday in December, Banks told People her life is ‘totally different than’ she thought it would be at that age.

‘I’m poppin’. I am not insecure about myself. I ain’t trippin’,’ she said earlier this month. ‘I often say “Child, [I’m] 50!” before I say something. That statement gives me permission to say whatever the heck I feel like saying.’

Banks added, ‘I’m a momma and an entrepreneur. 50 feels good.’  

This year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue comes with four covers featuring Gayle King, Kate Upton, Chrissy Teigen and Lily Aldridge. 

The issue is on newsstands May 17.
