While she may have ‘smizing’ down to a science, supermodel Tyra Banks’ picture perfect looks actually came with a little bit of help from her plastic surgeon. The iconic beauty recently revealed that she had some work done on her nose early in her career in her forthcoming memoir aptly titled Perfect Is Boring.

“I had bones in my nose that were growing and itching,” Tyra told PEOPLE in an interview. “I could breathe fine, but I added cosmetic surgery. I admit it! Fake hair, and I did my nose. I feel I have a responsibility to tell the truth.”

She added that she does not think it is fair to look down on women who choose to get a little bit of work done.

“Natural beauty is unfair. I get really uncomfortable when women who are these natural beauties judge anybody who does anything to themselves.”

Nor does she have time for the trending “no-makeup” look.

“We place a lot of emphasis on that,” she said. “As a model, I needed makeup. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. It leveled my playing field. Gisele, you don’t need it? I do! And we’re both modeling for Victoria’s Secret.”
