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.

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Stars Kim Chi and Trixie Mattel Launch Beauty Collaboration

“RuPaul’s Drag Race” competitors and TV personalities Kim Chi and Trixie Mattel have collaborated on a line of cosmetics — BFF4EVR — for KimChi Chic Beauty.

While reality show fans may know them as playful rivals, the two (born Sang-Young Shin and Brian Michael Firkus, respectively) are in fact longtime friends.

“I realized I have a famous friend, and I could use his fame and fortune to enrich my fortune, so I was like, ‘Hey, Trixie, let me coattail off of your fame and fortune and sell some products,’” joked Kim Chi of the launch.

“It’s not like Kim’s a world famous drag queen or anything. She’s just getting started in the industry,” Trixie Mattel jumped in, sarcastically.

Their working relationship began in 2012, said Mattel, founder of Trixie Cosmetics: “I met Kim because I saw her online, and she lived close by. Milwaukee and Chicago are very close. And I DM’ed her on Facebook Messenger at the time. I sent her some clips of myself performing, and I was like, ‘Can I ever come do your show?’ And I just remember meeting her for the first time, and she was so tall and so beautiful and so nice. And we were just instant friends. There were less drag queens at the time. There was less knowledge about drag.”

They would help one another, bring each other out on drag gigs.

“We would couch surf with each other every weekend, working for enough money to catch the train and get food,” said Mattel, who’s originally from Milwaukee. “Honestly, besides the fact that we were struggling financially to pull together looks, we both have talked and said it’s probably the happiest times of our lives.”
