Get the Look: Tyra Bank's PEOPLE Cover One-Piece

03/12/2007 at 03:00 PM ET

We got a ton of reader requests asking how to buy the red leotard that Tyra Banks wore on the cover of PEOPLE Magazine defending her weight gain. For that photoshoot, the former model showed off her curves in a skin tight red Rachel Pally leotard; for the taping of her Feb 26th talk show — which had the entire audience donning one-pieces — Banks selected a darker red version of the same suit. Readers eager to get the suit, which looks great on women of all shapes and sizes, will have to wait just a bit longer: Rachel Pally’s summer 2007 line will not be available until May on shopbop.com. (Unfortunately, the darker one was specially desgined for Tyra and will not be sold). You can get the same leotard right now at shopbop.com, $92, in brown, black, blue and deep purple.

oh no. not this again. if you would’ve given her another 10 minutes or so, trya would’ve come up w/something else just as ‘worthy’ to get herself in the spotlight again. give a girl a chance, lol.

$92 dollars for this item is way too much. I bought three of an identcal item last year from American Apparel for a total of get this $78 dollars. Don’t waste your money just because a star is in it.

I like the color but the price, maybe it makes a person look thinner or something that’s why it’s kinda pricey??

I love America’s Next Top Model, but TYRA GET OVER YOURSELF ALREADY!! I cant even watch her talk show anymore bc when she is interviewing guests she is always interrupting them and starts on a rant about herself!! I use to like Tyra but now she makes me sick!!

I like the swimsuit, but I would not pay that much for it. I just wanted to reiterate that Tyra is looking great (even tho she seems to love all the attention generated from the “fat” pics) and I don’t think there is anything wrong with her body. She is no longer a working super model so she doesn’t have to be sickly looking. But still, that is too much money for a swimsuit!!

alice on

Who cares already? Why is this being brought up AGAIN? Isn’t this cover like a month old now. Move on.

Amanda on

Tyra can be as annoying as the next celebrity but I will support her all the way in this cause!

KC on

FYI the $98 dollar item isn’t even a swimsuit…it’s basically a onesie/strapless leotard! That I again say is way to exspensive!

Again I say American Apperal same exact “onsie” for $26 dollars and about 20 + colors to pick from.

I don’t see this suit appealing to anyone but an old lady who’s got to buy something to wear on a cruise.

cmelanieb on

I agree with the majority of the ladies above, Tyra needs to get over herself. I can’t stand her! FYI 161 lbs may be “fat” for a celeb and the critics but in the real world 161 lbs is alot of peoples dream weight. I am sick of this story already, no more People…Please.

Hm. I think Tyra looks fantastic in that swimsuit. But I don’t wear bathing suits for photo shoots, I wear them to swim in, jump off the diving board in, play with my kids in, and also SUNBATHE in! I prefer a bikini, which is most practical for me!!

Lisa on

I think Tyra looks Great!! You can be thick and still be beautiful. Who cares if Tyra is skinny or fat at least she makes a difference!! Tyra you go girl!

AnnieM on

Yes – enough on this topic already, she looks fine, I look fine, you all look fine – what is next on the agenda? Oh yeah, overpriced swimsuits do not make for a wise purchase (chlorine is harsh).

RENEE on

I THINK TYRA LOOKS GOOD IN THAT PICTURE. EVERYONE MAKES SUCH A BIG FUSS ABOUT HER & HER WIGHT BUT WHAT ABOUT OTHER CURVY CELEBRITIES LIKE BEYONCE OR SCARLETT OR EVEN JENNIFER HUDSON. THEY LOOK AWESOME. I’M ARABIC & YEAH WE HAVE CURVES. I THINK THATS THE BEST PART OF A PERSON. BESIDES, BEING TO SKINNY LIKE CERTAIN CELBRITIES IN THE PAST JUST BRINGS TOO MUCH UNWANTED ATTENTION TO THEM. BEING CURVY & CONFIDENT IS THE BEST & MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD & LOOK HEALTHIER!!!

KC on

ILL SAY IT FOR THE LAST TIME IT’S NOT EVEN A SWIMSUIT ( YOU CAN’T GET IT WET) AND IT’S 98 BUCKS! IT’S A FREAKING LEOTARD!

Mr. Ed on

I don’t believe for a seond that the cover picture isn’t photoshopped.

JR on

Tyra is fine in or out of anything, A N Y T H I N G

Kim on

I think she looks freaking awesome! Whoever said she was fat is out of their damn mind!

CJ on

who cares??!! who cares how fat or skinny Tyra Banks is? I am not defending her or saying shes fat it’s just that everyone should just let it be.
