Bookworm Chic: Celebrity Women Who Went Back to School


For many of our favorite celebrities like Drake, school was often put on the back burner for a career that ended up taking over their schedules. Time passed, and there was no turning back as television, music, film or the runway took them farther and farther away from the classroom. While many tell their admirers how important a high school diploma and/or college degree is, very few practice what they preach. Take a look at some of the people who actually got their heads back into the books.–Nicole Brown

Tyra Banks

Tyra is the definition of media mogul. Besides being one of the world’s most recognized supermodels, she has a successful reality series, America’s Next Top Model, now in its 19th season, her charity the TZone, a New York Times Bestseller Modelland and an upcoming scripted series for ABC. In between all of this flawesomeness, she found time to attend Harvard Business School in 2011 and graduate from their Owner/President Manager Program, 22 years after turning down college offers for a fledging model career.

“In order for my company to grow and be the best, and to reach these women, and to serve them, I needed the best. So I went to the best,” says Tyra on her time there.
