Roxy Jacenko looks unrecognisable as she transforms into her drag alter ego ‘Coco Caine’ ahead of the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under

RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under will sashay onto screens on May 1, on Stan. 

And ahead of the highly anticipated eight-part series, PR powerhouse Roxy Jacenko transformed into her alter ego, fierce and fabulous drag queen ‘Coco Caine’.

In footage shared to her Instagram on Thursday, the Stan ambassador, 41, looked unrecognisable in a voluminous purple wig, high octane makeup and a dazzling silver and jewel encrusted frock.

A short video saw Roxy strutting through her Sydney office in the sparkling attire, which also included a beaded rainbow choker and statement star drop earrings. 

Her signature blonde locks were obscured underneath the voluminous wig, and her makeup consisted of a heavy coating of foundation, sharp eyebrows, extra long false lashes, metallic purple eyeshadow, heavy blush and a glossy magenta lip. 

Also posting a close-up shot to Instagram of her plunging frock and jewels, Roxy hilariously captioned it ‘desk attire in anticipation of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under on Stan Australia’.
