In one of Tyson’s last TV appearances, which was a visit to The Talk before the pandemic took hold of everything, she looked to be the definition of cool. She sported hip leather, and to match the sleekness of that, decided to go with an asymmetrically cut, short curly wig. A finishing touch? A pop of lovely red on her lips. Never will you come across a 96 (95 in the photo)-year-old with as much swag as Tyson had. A trailblazer indeed.
