The City of Good Living is home to many important people … we know this because we are so fortunate to know so many of you!
But lately, San Carlos has caught the eye of one Top Model and Entrepreneur! Beautifully sleek Supermodel Tyra Banks was seen dining al fresco at our very own Town earlier last week. Not sure her order, but she was front and center, seated at one of the tony restaurant’s new outdoor Laurel Street seating. Captured below from some of our friends, the supermodel ate and checked her phone before heading up Laurel Street to shop at Diddam’s.
We wondered what this Hollywood icon who hosted the popular reality TV show “America’s Next Top Model” and talk show called the “Tyra Banks Show” might be doing in San Carlos. We automatically thought she might be looking for property … and then after a little digging, it became clear that she might be seen bopping along Laurel again in the future.
Banks is said to be co-teaching a business class at Stanford University’s School of Business this Spring titled Project You, along with a television producer from The View.
According to Stanford’s course description, Project You will help each student realize: What is a personal brand and how can it be unleashed as a valuable, competitive advantage? Why do you need a personal brand? How do you differentiate yourself and create a brand identity and strategy? How do you use social and traditional media to enhance your brand effectively as well as measure the metrics of social media responses? And how do you know when to pivot and evolve your brand for sustainability?
Sounds pretty fun for business school! And pretty good for business here in San Carlos as well!
Word on the street is that Redwood City received some love from Tyra Banks as well, as many spotted her shopping at Target in Redwood City.
Let us know if you see anyone more sightings, and we’ll continue to keep you abreast of any other sightings you need to see – in the form of properties, of course.
