Is it possible to look like Kate and Cara? Tyra thinks so

Tyra Banks, model and television presenter, is never one to shy away from the limelight. In Tyra's latest creative project she has literally transformed herself into three top supermodels, Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne. She published the results of her makeovers on Twitter for all her followers to see. 

Her photograph's are timely, linking in with the airing of the new season of America's Next Top Model. In the shots it is startling how much Tyra looks like these supers. In particular the resemblance she bares to Kate Moss is striking. Although many will look at these photos and think that she used photoshop, Tyra insists that the photos have not been edited.

I was overwhelmed at how she has managed to capture the expressions and looks of these models. In doing so she has shown her versatility as a model and perhaps demonstrated to her new wannabe models on America's Next Top Model that it's possible to transform yourself into whoever you want to be. Thus, she makes the point that no supermodels beauty is unattainable. 

What do you think of Tyra's shots? Are they inspiring? Do you think she bares a resemblance to Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne (pre-makeover)?


  1. They're great shots, I think she looks great as Cara but the Kate Moss one looks a little weird! Reminds me of Gollum from Lord of the rings 'my precious', ha!

    1. Yeah, the Cara Delevingne shot is spot on!
