The star looked as gorgeous as ever in natural, glowing makeup. Most striking of all, though, was her hair, which Tyra wore loose, and which looked long and full of volume.

The 47-year-old captioned the lovely image: "When your @SmizeCream biz partner takes out your braids and tells you to show your natural self to the world."

Tyra also got her fans talking (and emulating her) earlier this week, when she posted a challenge asking people to recreate some of her most famous swimsuit photos.

As part of the #swimsuiticonchallenge, Tyra posted pictures of herself - and other models - from Swimsuit Illustrated photoshoots and put the ones her followers shared with her alongside them.

"Loving these @si_swimsuit #SwimsuitIconChallenge posts SO much!" she captioned it.

"Creative, beautiful and even hilarious… I can't get enough!"

Her fans absolutely loved her post and bombarded her with comments. "OMG I love this so much," wrote one, while another said: "Literally thought some of these pro shots were challenge."
