Tyra Banks is taking her modeling skills to a whole different level...and color.  The "Top Model" head honcho just showed off a sneak peek of a recent photoshoot, done by Uda Spreitzenbarth she did to salute her idol and a few faves.


Watch Tyra transform into Cindy Crawford and more inside...

Yep.  That's Tyra Banks you're looking at....sprawled out in an iconic pose she portrayed of her fave supermodel Cindy Crawford.  She posted the pic as part of a recent "Fashion Week Salute" project she did called "15", named for the number of iconic women Tyra portrayed.

"It was amazing to be physically transformed into my idol, @CindyCrawford... #Fierce mole, hair & all! #NYFW #Tyra15"

Interesting to say the least.  She kinda pulled it off.  And then we saw her Kate Moss tribute:

Which looked simultaneously scary as hell & kinda spot on.  Tyra tweeted, "Hid my booty & boobies like a pro, for a pro - all to look & pose just like #SuperModel Kate Moss! #NYFW #Tyra15".

And her third salute was to youngin Cara Delevingne.  She said, "4 hours of hair & makeup later, I've become übermodel @Caradelevingne! Fierce & love to #LA & #London. #NYFW #Tyra15".

About the 15 project, which will be unveiled Monday September 9th at a VIP reception at Jack Studios in Manhattan:
