The September 2021 issue of Vogue magazine featured Banks who spoke about modeling and race. Banks, who started modeling at 15, became the first Black woman to be featured on the cover of GQ in 1996 and a year later made history as the first Black woman on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.   

"I used to feel like the Josephine Baker of fashion. My own country did not celebrate my beauty and talent the way France did," Banks said. "Without France and its acceptance of me on countless runways and having my first magazine cover within a month of arriving there, I would not be where I am today."

Banks took over as the host of 'Dancing With The Stars' from co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews last year for season 29, also serving as an executive producer on the program. Banks was also the creator and host of the reality series 'America's Next Top Model', which aired for 24 seasons in the US and generated multiple international versions.

Banks recently defended the casting of Olivia Jade Giannulli on season 30 of 'Dancing With The Stars'. The American YouTuber and daughter of actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli came under the spotlight for her fraudulent application to the University of Southern California. It was a prominent part of the 2019 college admissions bribery scandal.

“I think she’s coming to Dancing With The Stars to be able to tell her story and show her vulnerability,” Banks said. “And is she a celebrity? Not traditionally, but what is a celebrity today? If that’s the case then there’s no Instagram influencer that is a celebrity. We are in a whole different world and celebrity has taken a turn and a change."
