Why is Tyra Banks doing white face?!

The supermodel just unveiled a first look at an ambitious new photo shoot -- showing her being transformed into 15 other famous models like Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Twiggy, Brooke Shields and Kate Upton.

And the results are pretty impressive!

Sporting a mole and Crawford's signature tresses, Banks could easily be Cindy's twin in the pic above -- which the photographer swears is "raw," "un-retouched" and done without digital manipulation.

They say imitation is the highest form of flattery ... and Cindy is happy with the results.

Udo Spreitzenbarth, who took the photos, says Tyra "takes on the notion of 'black and white' beyond the portrayed models' varying ethnicity" in the photos.  Their art project, "Tyra Banks Presents: 15" opens today at Jack Studios as part of New York Fashion Week

What do you think of the photos? Here she is as Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne below:
