I know there were others before him, but for our generation, I feel confident in stating that RuPaul Charles embodied the first public celebrity drag queen we had ever seen. Currently, the fashionista (among other things) spends his days filming his hit Logo TV show Drag Race, which offers other queens the opportunity to showcase their talents to be judged as worthy of the Drag Queen Hall of Fame. RuPaul offers the ladies on his show tips on how to unleash their inner fierceness. Here are a few things we picked up from the popular queen on how to be a f*%king lady.
1. Walk the Walk. Charles definitely knows how to throw his hips forward, lead with his legs and thrust the shoulders back. Put them together and you have the Queen’s signature strut. (Well he’d have his and you would have yours).
2. Contour. RuPaul already has amazing bone structure but he really knows how to define his cheekbones to give a more womanly look to his face. Thanks to him, I am not afraid to use two different face colors when I need to emphasize my bone structure.
3. Lashes, Baby. Long eyelashes give a feminine, “come-hither” look to eyes and drag queens would not be without them. Lashes add “Pow!” to a look and are a great way to accentuate your eyes.
4. Invest in amazing shapewear. No one knows the importance of nipping, tucking and shaping better than Miss RuPaul. I feel that if he can disguise what he needs to disguise with Spanx, certainly I can cinch my waist.
