Condi Loves Tyra, and Tyra Loves Her Back

Glamorous women, united.


Condoleezza Rice was honored as one of Glamour’s Women of the Year on November 10, and in her speech she said she had a goal for the evening: to meet fellow honoree Tyra Banks. The secretary of State succeeded. “I told her, ‘I’m a fan,’ ” Rice gushed at the Essex House after-party. “And she said, ‘I wanted to meet you too.’ And she told me I was tall.” Now that her supermodel-schmoozing dream has been fulfilled (and the administration is ending), what’s next for Rice? “I’ll do some writing and some speaking,” she said. “I want to do a book on American foreign policy, and I’d also like to do a book on my parents.” She doesn’t view the election as a rebuke to her boss. “I think that President Bush will be judged very kindly by history,” she said.
