Smize for the camera! Tyra Banks left her social media followers stunned once again with her latest pair of selfies shared on Instagram.

The supermodel posted two make-up free selfies wearing a fluffy gray bathrobe, which she said were taken two days after Thanksgiving, and showed off her striking supermodel beauty.

"The Category is… #2DaysAfterThanksgiving," she captioned her post, in which she highlighted her piercing eyes and light dusting of freckles, and her fans quickly showered her comments section with compliments.

"She doesn't age," one wrote, with another also adding: "It's giving 10's across the board," and a third commenting: "The category is … Stunning!" and a fourth gushing: "Beauty that never fades."

The supermodel and creator of reality TV staple America's Next Top Model is ready to turn the milestone age of 50 on December 4, and recently asked her fans for some appearance-related advice.

Tyra posted a throwback photo of herself sporting a short bob that had been dyed bronzed pink, and asked her followers: "PinkTyTy. What you think? Should I?"

Opinions were mixed, however, with many believing the color suited her. "Ooooh I love the hair. That color and cut with the waves is cute! There’s something that’s just 'normal' about this photo," one wrote, with another also saying: "Love how this color compliments your eyes so much."

A few others thought the color didn't suit her skin tone, leaving responses like: "I adore you... but it makes you look a wee bit washed out," and: "I feel like it washes you out."

"Jacket, shirt, pants, shoes, jewelry, and I did my own makeup and hair. I worked the red carpet and looked pretty 'expensive,' which just goes to show that you don't need to spend a lot to work the red carpet – or any place – and make it look hot!"

"I look in the mirror, and I find the best two to three poses," Tyra revealed. "I study the poses in the mirror and then I close my eyes and try to recreate the poses without seeing myself.

"You don't need to spend a lot to work the red carpet – or any place – and make it look hot!"

"I do this because there are no mirrors on the red carpet, so you really need to know the best angles in the outfit by memory! Of course, I tend to forget by the time I get to the event onto the red carpet. Oh well, A for effort."
