Supermodel Tyra Banks has taken on a short, red hairstyle in preparation for her new role as a talk show host.

The curvaceous catwalk beauty recently signed a deal with TELEPICTURES to host her own daytime show, which will be co-produced by Jennifer Lopez's former manager Benny Medina.

And to make sure she looks the part, Banks has taken on a more conservative style.

She says, "I am gonna be doing a talk show so I was like long (hair) is probably a little bit too (sexy). This (new style) is like a little bit more real, a little bit more me.

According to reports, Banks is also planning to create her own clothing line and magazine.
