This Drag Queen Stole the Show at Milan Fashion Week Impersonating Jennifer Coolidge

At this moment, Jennifer Coolidge is having a cultural moment. The star received a colossal welcoming when she hit the scene for Diesel‘s Fall/Winter 2023 presentation for Milan Fashion Week — but the gag is, it wasn’t her, but rather her doppelganger, British drag queen Alexis Stone.

Stone tapped special-effects makeup artist Neill Gorton for an exact replicated face of the ‘The White Lotus‘ star. Taking over five weeks to complete the prosthetic pieces, Stone also used Coolidge’s 2023 Golden Globes makeup as inspiration, including her lipstick, eyeshadow and lash application. For more razzle and dazzle to the look, Stone completed the impersonation with a blonde, beachy-wavy wig to further cement the moment.

For the Diesel presentation, Stone pulled onto the scene rocking a number from the brand’s new collection. The metallic cargo pants, biker jacket and matching top only pose this question: Could this have been a lewk that Coolidge turned herself into? One can only imagine, but what we do know is that the artist pulled off the actor’s signature put down to the “T.”

For those who aren’t aware of Stone’s talent, she’s known for impersonating some of the best of the best in pop culture, from Dolly Parton to Kim Kardashian — she’s the ultimate g.o.a.t.

Drag star Alexis Stone dressed as Jennifer Coolidge for MFW

Drag Queen Alexis Stone attended the Diesel Fashion Show during Milan Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2023/24 dressed as White Lotus star and pop culture icon Jennifer Coolidge.

A professional “transformer”, Stone is a Brighton-born entertainer who has garnered a huge following thanks to their ability to reconstruct their image and transform themselves into monstrous creations and celebrity lookalikes.

Stone’s celeb transformations often centre around strong female figures, such as Dolly Parton and Kim Kardashian (as well as the fictional character of Mrs. Doubtfire during Paris Fashion Week 2022), so it only makes sense that Coolidge was next on the list.

With her pouty lips, luscious locks, and distinct voice, Jennifer Coolidge is a Drag Queen’s dream role. The actress has enjoyed a cult following throughout her career thanks to her impressive CV, with memorable roles like Stifler’s Mom in American Pie and the iconic ‘bend and snap’ scene in Legally Blonde.

Recently, the 61-year-old has enjoyed a resurgence in her career thanks to her cameo in Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next video as well as her award-winning role of Tanya in Mike White’s hit show The White Lotus.

Posing on the red carpet with the actresses signature pout and tussled blonde locks, Stone embodied the treasured actress for the event.

According to Stone’s YouTube video, the “fascinatingly complicated” process of becoming Jennifer was a result of five weeks of work using multiple prosthetics, contact lenses, a wig, and even a set of false teeth.

Drag Artist Alexis Stone Transforms Into Jennifer Coolidge

The crowd erupted at Milan Fashion Week when Jennifer Coolidge waltzed into Diesel’s fall 2023 runway show on Feb. 22 . . . except, it wasn’t actually Coolidge. It was British drag artist Alexis Stone impersonating the “The White Lotus” star, thanks to an elaborate prosthetic transformation.

Stone enlisted special-effects makeup artist Neill Gorton to sculpt a replica of Coolidge’s face — a process that took a total of five weeks. After adhering the prosthetic pieces to her face in several parts, Stone used Coolidge’s makeup look from the Golden Globes as inspiration while applying lipstick, eyeshadow, eyebrows, and lashes. The finishing touches? A wavy blond wig, hazel contacts, fake teeth, and voilà! The makeover was complete.

At the Diesel presentation, Stone wore an outfit from the label’s new collection, including baggy metallic cargo pants, a matching biker jacket, a top emblazoned with a cutout logo, and a denim handbag. She walked the step and repeat, nailing Coolidge’s signature pout and shimmying for the cameras, before sitting in the front row next to Haley Lu Richardson, who portrays Coolidge’s assistant in “The White Lotus” season two. It seems everyone was fooled by Stone’s uncanny homage, as the drag queen wrote on Instagram, “A major success [given] most news outlets thought I was in fact Jennifer, such a moment.”

For the unacquainted, Stone is known for channeling celebrities and fictional characters for Fashion Week appearances. In the past, she’s transformed into Dolly Parton, Mrs. Doubtfire, and socialite Jocelyn Wildenstein for various Balenciaga shows and has used prosthetic makeup to mimic Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Lisa Rinna, and more just for fun on Instagram.
