As host of "America's Next Top Model," Tyra Banks often asks her proteges to pretend to be everything from zodiac animals to plastic surgery victims.

But in a new collection of photographs for Udo Spreitzenbarth's exhibition, "Tyra Banks Presents: 15," the 39-year-old model, mogul and television personality steps back in front of the camera to pose as her fellow supermodels -- Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford and more.


In honor of fashion week, Banks previewed a few of the shots.

"I've put my own spin on #NYFW w/a photo tribute to some of the fiercest #SuperModels ever. Unretouched. Real. Raw," she tweeted over the weekend.

Banks also impersonates herself at age 15, Lauren Hutton, Twiggy, Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer, Kate Upton, Grace Jones, Brooke Shields, Jerry Hall, Iman Carmen Dell-Orefice and Karlie Kloss.

"There's no digital manipulation to the imagery," Spreitzenbarth promises in a press release for the exhibition. "The photography, styling, 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 exhibit is now on display at New York City's Jack Studios.
