Tyra Banks has proven that she's a versatile model after undergoing drastic transformations to pose as 15 of the world's most famous supermodels in a new photo exhibit.
In conjunction with New York Fashion week, Banks and photographer Udo Spreitzenbarth launched "15," which includes "interpretive images" of Banks personifying Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Lauren Hutton, Jerry Hall, Iman, Kate Moss, Twiggy, Brooke Shields, Claudia Schiffer, Carmen Dell'Orefice, Grace Jones, Kate Upton, Karlie Kloss, Cara Delvingne as well as herself at 15 years old - the age at which Banks began her modeling career.
Banks embodies her colleagues, competitors and friends in completely untouched images.
According to the exhibit website, "In the age of pixilated veils, there is no digital manipulation to the imagery. 15 is Tyra Banks in raw, un-retouched images: the photography, sytling, and transformative hair and make-up, along with Banks' extraordinary ability to emulate each character, takes the notion of 'black and white' beyond the portrayed models' varying ethnicity and a description of the photographs."
The "America's Next Top Model" host has been posting several of the images on Twitter, including one honoring Crawford. "It was amazing to be physically transformed into my idol, @CindyCrawford... #Fierce mole, hair & all!" she posted on Saturday.
Banks added on Monday, "Check @CindyCrawford's iconic mole & pout! BUT it's TyTy as Cindy C in the makeup chair. No retouching!"
Her efforts are obviously impressing her subjects. Crawford tweeted back: " Hey @tyrabanks I was just writing my model Monday about you for tomorrow & here you are all #fierce & amazing! #workit #loveit #tyra15."
