Tyra Banks looked unrecognizable as she grabbed organic groceries in Los Angeles ahead of tonight's "Dancing with the Stars" airing. The 46-year-old supermodel and host the ABC show's 29th Season was photographed over the weekend during a masked outing with boyfriend Louis Bélanger-Martin. Tyra, whose glitz and glam is part of her identity, hit up Pacific Palisades in a decidedly low-key look. Whack a face mask on Banks, though, and much like everyone else in them, recognition gets tricky. Check it out below.
