Tyra Banks blames celebs of stealing supermodels' thunder
Washington, Aug 13 (ANI): With actresses and singers striking lucrative deals with cosmetic giants, Tyra Banks has said that the celebrity models are stealing cosmetic contracts from hard-up supermodels.
The catwalk queen-turned TV talk show host insists that models find it harder to land money-spinning deals with fashion, make-up and fragrance firms, who in turn prefer celebrity models for their adverts.
"I think all supermodels now are losing out to celebrities. It's celebrities who are getting the cosmetics contracts," Contactmusic quoted Banks, as saying.
Pop stars and Hollywood's leading ladies like Jennifer Connelly, Eva Mendes and Beyonce Knowles are being sought to promote cosmetic products, leaving professional models in the lurch.
While Connolly promotes Revlon and Mendes works for Calvin Klein, Knowles is a spokesmodel for L'Oreal. (ANI)
