Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst may be breaking into the fashion world as she has appeared in a photo shoot with legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld.

Wurst, who took Eurovision by storm with her song ‘Like a Phoenix’, appears in the photoshoot by CR Fashion Book alongside Lagerfeld and pregnant model Ashleigh Good.

The Austrian drag queen wears new-season Givenchy in the latest issue of CR.

Inerviewing Wurst was Casey Legler, model. Wurst said: “I created Conchita as the goal of a very long… well, actually, it’s the story of my life” reveals Neuwirth. “I grew up in a small Austrian village, a quite conservative one, and I was the weird little boy always dressing as a girl.”

“It was overwhelming for me, because besides having fun and dressing up every weekend, I got to learn from such great artists.”

“[Being trans] is very serious business, it’s a life within itself, so you musn’t confuse the two. I always get the question, why the beard? And I think the beard, for me, has so many reasons and so many meanings, but at the end of the day, I want to show that you can achieve anything, that you can have a beautiful life with an kind of look, because the way you look isn’t the most important thing in life. It doesn’t matter.”

Conchita Wurst also appeared last month to close Jean Paul Gaultier’s couture show.
