Tyra Banks is back! And she's looking better than ever!

Making the ultimate comeback, the supermodel-turned-TV personality is gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit for the third time - more than two decades after she did so for the first time.

Wearing an itty-bitty yellow string bikini on the publication's 2019 edition, it's hard to believe Banks is 45.

"This is for everybody that has been told that they are not good enough because of their body, their age, their everything," Banks posted on Instagram.

"#BanX is here to tell you that you ARE friggin' fierce no matter what anybody says! Drop mic now!"

Banks started her career modelling as a teen and landed covers of nearly every fashion magazine.

In 1993, she signed a contract with CoverGirl and eventually went on to become a Victoria's Secret Angel.

The mogul made history in 1997 as the first black woman to get her own solo cover for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit's annual swimsuit edition.

Banks retired from modelling in 2005.

She has dabbled in acting, starring on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and eventually started her own production company, which went on to produce her hit series, America's Next Top Model.

Banks welcomed her first child in 2016, a baby boy.
