Tyra Banks is doing an upcoming segment on her talk show about race in the fashion industry - specifically, how hard it is for women of color to book on the runways. Her special guests for the show? Heatherette designers Richie Rich and Traver Rains, plus their catwalk opener and closer, Chanel Iman. We're slightly shocked that Ford would let Chanel do The Tyra Banks show - it's not quite the same as a Vogue cover - but so psyched to see the poised sixteen-year-old discuss her own modeling adventures with Ty-Ty Baby. The only irony? We don't think Chanel Iman would ever have won Top Model - weirdly, she would have been too modelesque for a shot at the title.
