Shot by photographer Udo Spreitzenbarth, the goal behind the project is to capture “the likeness of (Tyra's) colleagues to address the powerful nature of these well-known symbols, while reminding them that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”, according to Spreitzenbarth's website. A press release adds, “In the age of pixilated veils, there is no digital manipulation to the imagery. 15 is Tyra Banks in raw, un-retouched images”.

Through the use of “transformative hair and make-up”, 39-year-old Banks managed to emulate not only Crawford and Moss, but also Kate Upton, Brooke Shields, Claudia Schiffer, Twiggy, Karlie Kloss, Iman, Grace Jones, Cara Delevingne, Linda Evangelista, Lauren Hutton, Carmen Dell'Orefice and Jerry Hall as well as a version of herself at the age of 15.
