You might say Tyra Banks is dressed to impress--or rather, she's offering up some pretty awesome impressions.

The "America's Next Top Model" mastermind paid tribute to her fellow supermodels Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss and newcomer Cara Delevigne by re-creating creative poses of each catwalker in a new photoshoot in honor of New York Fashion Week.

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

No, this wasn't a "Top Model" challenge.

The 39-year-old Banks transformed herself for 15 black and white photographs for photographer Udo Spreitzenbarth's exhibition, Tyra Banks Presents: 15.

The aim, according to the photog's website, is to capture "the likeness of her colleagues to address the powerful nature of these well-known symbols, while reminding them that 'imitation is the sincerely form of flattery."


On mimicking the waif-thin Moss, Banks wrote:

But perhaps the author, actress and erstwhile talk show host's favorite was the 47-year-old Crawford.

Other fashion icons Banks emulates include Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer, Kate Upton, Grace Jones, Brooke Shields, Lauren Hutton, Twiggy, Carmen Dell-Orefice, Karlie Kloss, Jerry Hall and Iman. Tyra also posed as herself at age 15.

Now that's fierce. The exhibit opens on Sept. 8 at Jack Studios in New York City.
