Tyra Banks still knows how to look fierce!

The "America's Next Top Model" creator recently stepped in front of the cameras to take part in a racy bondage-style photo shoot with WestEast magazine, and she shared some behind-the-scenes pictures with her Twitter followers.

"Giving WestEast mag in Asia a lil' bit naughty, a lil' bit nice," the 38-year-old tweeted over the weekend. "Where's my whip?"

The first photo in the saucy set was a close up of Banks' face, which was partially obscured with a strappy mask. She had on dramatic cat eye makeup and her eyebrows were thick and dark. While she didn't smile with her mouth, which was expressionless, there is no doubt she was doing one of her trademark "smize" — smiling with her eyes, which were big and wide in the photo. The model dubbed the look "Catwoman catwalk."

Banks then posted a photo of her complete outfit. Along with the mask, the supermodel had on a dark blue-black dress with pointed shoulders. There was black bias binding at the middle of the frock as well as in the background on the set.

In another photo, Banks played up her cleavage in a low-cut, skin-tight black dress with a studded belt that had shoulder straps. She positioned her hands across her chest. "Bringin' the drama," she wrote. "Can U feel it?"

Banks also channeled Rihanna and Lady Gaga for the shoot. In one close up shot, you can see her long pointy nails, which looked lethal, holding a glass of water. "How does @Rihanna work w/ these nails?" Banks asked. Another photo showed Banks on her stomach dressed in black with a white bondage bustier top. She's kicking up her shoes — black crystal stilettos, which could also act as a weapon, if necessary. "Fierce @ladygaga inspired shoes," Banks noted. "Good thing I'm not standing!"

The final photo showed Banks on the cover of the Asian magazine. In a look very different from the others, she was wearing a black catsuit with leather shoulder pads and arm cuffs. "I feel like a Transformer," she said. "Fierce Optimus Prime."

Monday it was announced that Banks will be starring in a "Life-Size" sequel. In the original 2000 TV movie, which aired on the Disney Channel, Banks shared the screen with Lindsay Lohan, playing a doll named Eve that comes to life. Banks, who will apparently be without drama magnet LiLo this time around, will also serve as executive producer.

Seeing as it's a Disney Channel flick, we're certain that Banks won't be wearing any of the above outfits in the movie. But we're sure she will "smize" in every scene.
