Tyra Banks: One Super Model or 15?

By Rachel Sirany, The Prowl

Tyra Banks, former Victoria’s secret model, talk show host, and current producer of the ever popular “America’s Next Top Model,” is easily a household name in America.

Banks is most famous for her “smize” “tooch” and “fierce” inspiration, and most recently the model has caused buzz with photographs of her posing as herself and 14 other successful models.

The lovely ladies honored to be reimagined were 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 Delevingne and Tyra herself.

The photography project is entitled “15,” which is named after the 15 models she channels as well as the age Tyra started her own career. The project was released last Sunday and took social media by storm as everyone praised her incredible ability to transform.

All the shots in the album are “un-retouched,” which gives an even more incredible edge to the already astonishing photos. The incredible impersonations give not only glory to Tyra for her amazing modeling talents, but recognize that, even in the supermodel world, beauty is represented by many different forms.

The photography project is on display now until November 9, at Jack’s studios in New York. All the photos were also posted by Tyra herself on her Instagram account @tyrabanks. You can also check the photos out at eonline.com.
