Tyra’s ringin’ in her 39th birthday with not one but TWO Cosmopolitan magazine covers!

The supermodel-mogul is posted up on the front of both the South African and Estonia December 2012 issues.

Tyra addresses self-esteem and body image inside the magazine and, because she’s embraced her five-head and weighty-issues, she prides herself on turning that acceptance into inspiration for other women.

“Loving yourself is paramount, no matter what shape, size or color you are. I call it being flawsome: you + your flaws + awesome = flawsome,” Tyra told Cosmo.

We dug all the way back to Tyra’s first magazine cover to take you on a stroll down memory lane in honor of the beauty’s birthday.

Hit the flip for more…
