A few days ago, Tyra tweeted some professional pictures of herself portraying Cara Delevinge, Cindy Crawford and Kate Moss.
She described this venture on her Twitter feed as:
“I’ve put my own spin on #NYFW with a tribute to some of the fiercest #SuperModels ever. Unretouched. Real. Raw.”
Mainly, these looks I believe were achieved with makeup, lots of it – its all the eyebrows – look closer!
As soon as these pictures hit the internet the trolls went on a ‘is this racist/not racist’ tangent, I believe we need to admire her bravery for attempting these. Respect for the fact that these people, fall into the same category as her – SUPER MODELS. I do not believe they were executed excellently but rather they sort of do the trick. I am also not sure whether it was a good idea but its the thought that counts, right?
CARA DELEVINGE BY TYRA BANKS
To recreate these looks has taken not only talent from a makeup artistry front but rather that from a photographic perspective, the lighting is overall these 3 images not done too badly… apart from the Kate Moss “The Grudge” look a like picture (but let’s be honest the source and inspiration of this picture was from Kate’s heroin chic phase anyway – so bravo Tyra & Co??).
TYRA DOES “HEROIN CHIC”
The press release gives the feeling that these 3 images are part of a 15 image series… I’m very curious to see the others and I will be sure to share these with you.
