Jinkx Monsoon And Ivy Winters Star In Ricky Middlesworth's 'Death Becomes Her' (PHOTOS)


"America's Newest Drag Superstar" Jinkx Monsoon may have the "Drag Race" crown on her head (and $100,000 in her hand!) but long before she was RuPaul's protege, she was another young boy obsessed with the Meryl Streep-Goldie Hawn 1992 classic "Death Becomes Her."

Now things have come full circle. After being crowned winner of Season 5 of "Drag Race," Jinkx has stepped back in front of the camera to recreate famous scenes from the movie. Ms. Monsoon plays Meryl's Madeline Ashton, while Season 5 competitor Ivy Winters poses as Goldie's Helen Sharp.
