Tyra Banks recently thrilled her 6.6 million Instagram followers with a throwback shot, honoring Will Smith on his birthday. Tyra decided to share a snap from one of her appearances on The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air. The show, which introduced audiences to Will Smith as an actor, ran for six seasons. Plenty of the show’s guest stars went on to have successful careers in the entertainment industry — including Tyra Banks.

In the snap, Tyra rocked a pair of light-wash, high-waisted jeans. The look was accessorized with a thick black belt and paired with a light-wash denim vest. She had on a white turtleneck crop top underneath, which was layered over a plaid shirt. She finished off her ensemble with a blue baseball cap that had feathers sticking out of it. Tyra referenced the hat in her caption, well-aware of the crazy look she rocked in the throwback snap.

Will Smith wore a casual outfit, which consisted of a baggy and plaid button-down shirt, which was paired with a simple white t-shirt and jeans.

The duo’s characters were having a conversation in the photo, with both stars looking far younger than fans are used to seeing them today. Tyra’s natural beauty was on full display — even in the retro outfit — as her long locks cascaded down her shoulders. The model’s full lips looked luscious, as she wore a slightly pouty expression.

“One of my favorite duos,” one follower said.

Another follower commented, “that outfit is everything.”

Many of Tyra’s fans wished Will Smith a happy birthday in the comments section. Quite a few users also noted that the episode featured in the throwback snap recently aired in a rerun. It seems that fans are still finding a way to watch Tyra’s appearances on the show — even decades after it was originally on the air.

It’s not the first throwback that Tyra has decided to post recently, either. Just last month, the beauty shared a throwback Sports Illustratedvideo, which showed off her hourglass figure. The curvaceous model came out of retirement for the shoot, and she looked like a total babe.
