A recent photo of Tyra Banks without her signature long, blonde lace front shows off the celeb's natural hair.

Tyra Banks is many things: world renowned supermodel, bestselling author, fashion and beauty mogul, and wig snatcher.

But over the weekend, the ANTM creator hung up her lace front and showed us her real inches on the gram. "Me...because sometimes the wigs and weaves need a vacation," she wrote in the caption.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAS, TY TY! We're not sure if she's natural of if this is just the texture from unbraided cornrows, but either way we're living.

Back in 2009, the celebrity revealed her real tresses on her Emmy-winning talk show, Tyra. "I've worn weaves, and wigs, and pieces... since I was 17, 18 years old," Banks said to her live audience. "And I wanted to show the real me. I wanted to show the raw me."

Since rising to international superstardom, Banks has advocated to challenge the fashion industry's biased beauty standards, and to give models of all ethnic, gender and body identities a platform.

In an interview with W magazine, the supermodel said, "I see such diversity in girls that are very known, from Jourdan Dunn to Joan Smalls to Duckie Thot to a lot of girls whose names I donโ€™t even know but I just follow on Instagram, but thereโ€™s still a long way to go, particularly on the runway."

Sis was in these streets championing inclusion and encouraging people to embrace their real selves before it was trendy, so put some respect on her name.
