Tyra Banks mentors Delevingne, Kloss

Los Angeles, Aug 9 (IANS) Supermodel Tyra Banks, who is also the host of “America’s Next Top Model”, meets “Paper Towns” actress Cara Delevingne and model Karlie Kloss to discuss career strategy.

“The modelling industry during my heyday was really about supermodels – household name supermodels, like Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer,” Banks was quoted as saying by Entertainment Tonight, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“Cut to 10 years later, it’s making a shift, and I think it’s because of social media. So now, we have Cara Delevingne and we have Karlie Kloss… girls like that, that are breaking through the clutter, and are now becoming known,” she added.

Meanwhile, the 41-year-old model and television personality admitted that models were under “so much pressure” nowadays.

“We meet a couple of times a year. We do strategy maps, and then they’ll go off and they’ll execute, then they’ll come back and we check in again. It’s nice to see that what they’re doing is working,” said the model who will also be hosting “FABLife” in September.
