Eurovision champion Conchita Wurst continues to rule the world.

The Austrian drag queen and singer, 25, strikes a pose for legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld in the forthcoming issue of CR Fashion Book -- and couldn't look more striking in haute couture.

Lagerfeld, who also shot the photographs, praised Wurst not just for his vocal talents, but also because "he has done something that's never been done before."

He added, "This brings new meaning to the term 'drag.'"

CR Fashion Book Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld called the shoot "sensitive," but was quick to add, "Karl's talent in photographing with a classical style gave more strength to Conchita's character."
