On Twitter, Tyra Banks previewed some images from her upcoming exhibition Tyra Banks Presents: 15, in which she transforms into "iconic images of her colleagues, competitors, and friends." In the three images she posted, she's emulating Cara Delevigne, Kate Moss, and Cindy Crawford. Because this is the Internet, people have accused her of "donning whiteface." And so the circle of life continues.

The exhibition's press release states that "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."
