Another day of New York Fashion Week, another opportunity for Teyana Taylor to stomp down the runway in a fierce and ferocious manner (and she may not be done yet). The 26-year-old may be known as a singer and dancer to many, but these days, she’s showing that she also has talent when it comes to modeling. In just this current fall NYFW, Taylor has closed three different shows, including GCDS, Philipp Plein, and as of last night, The Blonds:

Taylor has said about her walk that it bring a little extra spice to the runway, and based on all the shine she’s getting from her appearances, designers see a presence like hers is necessary to make a show pop.

“When I watched the video I was like, ‘Damn, I’m so extra,” Taylor said to USA Today. “But then I realized I’m not extra, I’m spicy, that’s all. I’m just spicy, I put a little spice in everybody’s life.”

But truth be told, none of this is new for the Harlem native. She may not be the average model height, but she does have the confidence and killer body of one. Not to mention, quite the fierce walk. She’s also got some top model experience. Check out some of the showstopping runway and spokesmodel Teyana Taylor model moments and you will see fairly quickly the sistah is one who can strut her stuff.
