Tyra Banks

Woman of the Week: July 9, 2012

Determined to help young girls embrace their bodies -- flaws and all -- she took to Twitter. "I challenge you to a big 4head contest. You know I got that win on lock!" she said with a photo to prove she’s probably right! She's a former model and television host who admits to having the c-word -- cellulite --something no one, especially in hollywood, would ever admit. Her cellulite makes her "flawsome,"  she says, "because I own it as part of what makes me unique." Girls are getting the message! "My crooked smile isn’t going anywhere. Used to get teased for it, forever embracing. #flawsome" said a fan on Twitter.

"Flawsome" is awesome as far as we’re concerned, and that is why its creator Tyra Banks, host of America's Next Top Model, is the iVillage Woman of the Week.
