Jewel transforms into June Carter Cash

Jewel has transformed herself to become country music legend June Carter Cash in a new biopic.

The singer/songwriter posted the first photo of her new look online on Tuesday (06Jun12) and she is unrecognisable as Johnny Cash's wife.

Tweeting her makeover to fans, she wrote, "Here I am as June in my trailer with her blue eyes and perfect teeth."

Director Allison Anders added, "My lovely star Jewel with blue eyes, straight teeth and kicka** wardrobe as June Carter Cash."

The new mum's TV movie about the Carter's life is called The June Carter Cash Story.
