15 times Tyra Banks showed exactly how fierce she is!

Oh, Tyra -- shall we list all the ways in which we absolutely adore thee? From her successful modeling career, to acting, to hosting her own talk show AND television show -- Tyra Banks just seems to have it all together when it comes to her career. But as one of the original Victoria's Secret angels, did we expect anything less?

The gorgeous bombshell, turned reality show host, turned entrepreneur has certainly made a name for herself all over the world. Aside from completely skyrocketing one of the most successful reality modeling series on television *cough "America's Next Top Model" cough* -- she won 2, COUNT EM 2, Daytime Emmy Awards for her very own talk show "The Tyra Banks Show."

But that's not all this gorgeous, hazel-eyed lady-boss has accomplished. In 2010, she published a young adult novel by the name Modelland (get the book), based on her life as a model (duh). And no big deal, it topped the The New York Times Best Seller list in 2011!

But possibly the most incredible thing about her is that she's one of 4 African Americans and only 7 women to consistently rank among the world's most influential people by TIME magazine. Yes Tyra, yes!

Well, in case you forgot, today is this Queen's 42nd birthday (WE KNOW, she doesn't look a day over 21!) -- and to celebrate, we wanted to showcase her fiercest moments to date! Check out the slideshow above and remember to strike a pose today in honor of the top model legend herself.

Watch below for how to live an oh so fab life just like Tyra:
