In a very bold–or very foolish–move, supermodel Tyra Banks decided to pay homage to her “colleagues, competitors and friends,” in a photo exhibition entitled, “Tyra Banks Presents: 15 photographed by Udo Spreitzenbarth and styled by creator director Ty-Ron Mayes,” just in time for New York Fashion Week.
The “America’s Next Top Model” creator transforms herself into a bevy of modeling legends, including: Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Lauren Hutton, Jerry Hall, Kate Moss, Iman, Kate Moss, Twiggy, Brooke Shields, Claudia Schiffer, Carmen Dell’Orefice, and Grace Jones. She also offers her interpretation of newbies, Kate Upton, Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne.
And in the pièce de résistance Tyra channels herself as a 15-year-old girl, according to the press release.
Clearly excited about her edgy concept, Tyra shared it on Twitter.
