Tyra Banks is easily one of the most beautiful women in the world, and she’s also one of the realest.

The supermodel has never backed down from critics, and is never afraid to show off who she is. Case in point? On Wednesday, Banks shared a completely natural photo of herself on Instagram — no makeup, no extensions, no filter. Why? Because, like we said, she’s real.

“You know how people say#nofilter but you know there’s a freakin’ filter on their pic? Or maybe there’s a smidge of retouching going on but they’re lying and saying it’s all raw & real? Well, this morn, I decided to give you a taste of the really real me. I wanted to smooth out my dark circles so badly!!! But I was like, ‘Naw, Ty. Show ‘em the REAL you.’ So…here I am. Raw. And there YOU are…looking at me, studying this picture. Maybe you’re thinking, ‘Whoa, she looks ROUGH.’ And if you are, great! You deserve to see the REAL me. The REALLY real me. #RawAndReal,” Banks captioned the photo.

To be honest, Banks doesn’t look flawless, but she does look beautiful. There is nothing more charming than showing how you really wake up in the morning. And we’re not the only ones who think that. The photo has over 100,000 LIKES and the comments, for the most part, have been positive. “You are fearfully and wonderfully made,” one user wrote.
