MANILA – It seems that former supermodel and “America’s Next Top Model” host Tyra Banks has her eye on half-Filipina model Georgina Wilson and a handful of local celebrities.
Over the weekend, Banks posted a photo of Wilson on her Instagram page, tagging the model and saying that she “has what it takes.”
The photo had the caption, unedited: “Werkin’ that come hither stare. @ilovegeorgina has #whatittakes.”
It seems that Banks has been on the lookout for women and men who have the potential to make it big in the modeling industry, with the “America’s Next Top Model” host posting photos of several people and using the hashtag #whatittakes.
In one of her posts, Banks said: “Tyty is looking for you. Do you have #whatittakes?”
It can be recalled that Wilson was featured in “America’s Next Top Model” in 2011 as a guest model and stylist.
Also on Instagram, Wilson responded to Banks’s post.
“Thanks Tyra!!! Good vibes before #thenakedtruth,” she said, referring to the much-talked about fashion show of the homegrown brand Bench over the weekend.
Wilson went on to express her excitement as Banks followed her on Instagram, as well as some of her fellow local celebrities – Miss World 2013 Megan Young, actresses Kim Chiu, Anne Curtis, Marian Rivera, Jennylyn Mercado, Lovi Poe and Solenn Heusaff, and her cousin Isabelle Daza.
“Totally fangirling!! @tyrabanks just followed all of us! Pressure on our posts haha,” Wilson wrote.
