T yson Beckford is feature in the latest issue of European magazine ES. For 17 years he has been considered as one of the world’s most beautiful people. He’s fronted myriad international fashion campaigns and is currently filming Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model with Elle Macpherson. Tyson grew up in upstate New York. It’s hard to believe but back then Tyson, who has African-Jamaican and Chinese ancestry, was skinny with buckteeth. In his late teens a sudden growth spurt took him from 5ft 8in and 145lb to 6ft 1in and 185lb, and with his body sculpted by weights and athletics, he was soon picked up to be the face of a series of campaigns for Ralph Lauren.
