Apparently, Tyra Banks is trying to prove that she is the most authentic supermodel.

The America’s Next Top Model host posted a photo to Instagram hours ago without makeup and without a photo filter.

Banks said she was reluctant to publish the photo but wants her more than 2 million followers to see a “raw and real” image of her.

Her photo caption read:

You know how people say #nofilter but you know there’s a freakin’ filter on their pic? Or maybe there’s a smidge of retouching going on but they’re lying and saying it’s all raw & real? Well, this morn, I decided to give you a taste of the really real me. I wanted to smooth out my dark circles so badly!!! But I was like, “Naw, Ty. Show ’em the REAL you.” So…here I am. Raw. And there YOU are…looking at me, studying this picture. Maybe you’re thinking, “Whoa, she looks ROUGH.” And if you are, great! You deserve to see the REAL me. The REALLY real me. #RawAndReal
