Actor Lucy Liu might already be an icon, but she stepped into the shoes of a few other legendary entertainers for a shoot with Marie Claire China.

Recreating classic pictures of David Bowie, Prince, Madonna, Blondie and more, she revealed on Instagram that the shoot was the “most creative” one she had ever done.

Liu posted a number of pictures to her Instagram which she said she hoped was a “temporary distraction” from the coronavirus pandemic.

Dressed in a Gucci suit and covered in David Bowie’s signature lightning bolt make-up, she posed with a microphone and orange hair.

She also shared a behind the scenes video where she channelled the energy of each star on set.

Another striking picture saw Liu practice her best purple rain as she wielded a pink guitar, dressed in a violet suit and a wig reminiscent of Prince’s curly locks.

Complete with an over the top floral ascot and ruffled sleeves, she said, “Yes that’s me!”

The actor also tagged singer Madonna in a black and white shot, recreating her promotional pictures for Desperately Seeking Susan.

Wearing a sheer lace top, black cropped blazer, an oversized hair bow with a curled fringe, The Defenders actor Mike Colter hashtagged the post #materialgirl in the comments.

She was completely transformed in a close up portrait of herself as Boy George, complete with a bright red lip, defined black eyebrows and blue eyeshadow.


Wearing colourful braids, a hat and oversized black hat, she again tagged Boy George in the description.
