02/19/2014 by Corinne Heller

Kristen Wiig recently showcased one of her best impressions yet, appearing as British flowy-haired One Direction singer Harry Styles on the new "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."

On Wednesday night's show, the second episode featuring Fallon as host of the long-running talk show following Jay Leno's departure, Wiig, a 40-year-old "Saturday Night Live" alum, sported a blazer over a white V-neck shirt and several crosses hanging from her neck as she casually spoke to Fallon. The 39-year-old who is also a past cast member of the sketch comedy series.

"How is it goin'?" Wiig asked, making no attempt to put on a British accent like Styles'.

"Your accent is different in person," Fallon joked.

The host also asked Wiig-as-Harry-Styles several questions, such as "favorite food?" (Answer: "Carnitas" -- not a common dish in England, although Chipotle does exist in London) and "favorite movie?" (Answer: "Star Wars"). Fallon also had Wiig autograph a picture of Styles and sing one of One Direction's hit songs -- "What Makes You Beautiful." In true Fallon style, he joined her for a duet.

Styles, 20, has not commented about Wiig's stunt. He and the other members of One Direction are currently in London for the BRIT Awards.
