Move over Nicki Minaj! A real star is coming to break the Internet and her name is Tyra Banks. The iconic and legendary model also covers the Winter 2017 issue of PAPER magazine where she channels her inner animal in a very ferocious photoshoot.

The cover and photoshoot comes in anticipation of Tyra’s return to ANTM, where she will be hosting alongside returning new judges stylist Law Roach, model Ashley Graham and PAPER‘s creative director Drew Elliott:


“I stepped away, but social media was calling my name in my sleep, screaming they were pissed off at me that I deserted [the show]. I needed to bring my butt back, so I did. One thing I know is from studying business, they say your brand is not what you say it is, it’s what they say it is. I thought Top Model would be fine without me hosting, but the social media sphere let me know that was not the case.”

When speaking about the show, she added:

“It’s going to be #NLF – NEXT LEVEL FIERCE. The battle between the generations is on. Who says 40 is too old to get your model game on? Not me, boo.”

Take a look at the rest of her photos from her Vijat Mohindra shoot:
