PHOTOS: Mike Ruiz Transforms Lance Bass + Queen Latifah Into, Well, This

OH SNAP — Los Angeles photographer Mike Ruiz has been shooting celebs for years, with a portfolio that includes Brooke Shields, Doll Parton, and Zac Efron, and credits in Vanity Fair in Interview, and a judge’s chair on Canada’s Next Top Model. But America met Mike, the person, last night on the second season premiere of RuPaul‘s Drag Race, which has gone all America’s Next Top Model on us — thanks to Ruiz’s lens. His latest project? Celebrity transformations, including the likes of Queen Latifah, Tatum O’ Neal, Morgan Fairchild, Carmen Electra, Lance Bass. and yes, Ms. Shields — a few of which he wanted to share with Queerty readers.

      Great shots of Lance. Amazing how Kathy looks more like a drag than Ru.

      The pics of Lance Bass are reminiscent of Alan Cumming in Cabaret.

      By far the best Lance Bass has ever looked (to me at least).

      They’re all trying a little bit too hard to be cool, for my taste.

      OMG, Brooke went all “No more wire hangers!” Joan Crawford in that last pic! On an aside, just what exactly, if anything, has Lance Bass been doing for an actual living for the past decade??

      I was surprised that the pictures of Lance Bass were actually kind of hot. The picture of him with Mike Ruiz was a good one. Looked like they were having some fun with it.

      Not sure what’s so surprising about it. Lance is hot.
