Ebonee Davis is a model rapidly on the rise.

On top of her striking yet approachable look, ability to speak candidly on the highs and lows of being Black in the fashion industry and an impressive social media presence — Davis knows how to give face!

She proved this to be true by teaming up with The Cut for a stunning homage to 8 legendary Black fashion icons.

The model took to Instagram to give fans a sneak peak at the shoot and we can't get over how epic it is!

True to her modeling roots, Davis channels the one and only Iman in this spot-on shot.

Royalty inside my DNA. 👸🏿

She rocks an orange leotard, oversized jacket, bold jewelry and a fierce curly 'fro, making her the spitting image of Iman.

She then takes on the massive challenge of recreating this iconic Nina Simone image—and nails it.

What Happened, Miss Simone?

And last but certainly not least, Davis captures the essence of breathtaking model of the '70s Donyale Luna while donning a grand gold and silver gown.
