Winters went on to post several different looks, with the hashtag #minimadonna on her various Madonna impressions.

Winters’ campaign follows news that Madonna, who last played Ireland in July 2012 when she took to the stage at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, will be directing and co-writing a biopic about her life alongside Juno and Young Adult screenwriter Diablo Cody.

"I want to convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer – a human being, trying to make her way in this world," Madonna said in a press statement.

"The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive. There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who better to tell it than me. It’s essential to share the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision."

Amy Pascal, who worked on The Post and Greta Gerwig’s 2019 Little Women remake, will produce the film alongside Madonna.
