Despite retiring from modeling for a while, Banks appeared in a recent ad for Kardashian’s Skims shapewear line, despite being dead-set against it.
“At first I said no, I’m retired from living in my panties,” Banks told “The Late Late Show” host James Corden on Wednesday. “I am a businessman now.”
But Kardashian didn’t hear about it and lobbied Banks for 30 minutes to accept the gig, saying she’d be “crazy” to decline it.
“He’s a businessman,” Banks said. “She broke it left, right, center. I got off the phone, talked to my mom and my mom said, ‘Kim’s right, you’re crazy. Get them your ass in the panties right now.'”
The “Dancing with the Stars” host heeded her mom’s wishes and struck a pose with Kardashian and fellow modeling greats Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio and Candice Swanepoel.
