“RuPaul’s Drag Race” came correct again to color the world in drag in honor of L.A. Pride Weekend. Thanks to the creative fashion minds behind the World of Wonder-produced show, a costume display exhibit added plenty of extra vibrancy to the rainbow of celebration that took place on Saturday, where the eleganza of season ten designer Zaldy offered up plenty to admire for Pride attendees. If you weren’t able to make it out – don’t hide your pride! There’s still time to relish the sumptuous gowns, which will be on display throughout the rest of the month, and viewable in all their glory from the vantage point of being outside the building located at 8382 Melrose Avenue.
Featuring a total of ten Zaldy creations – all worn by RuPaul and fellow queens throughout season ten of the show – the exhibit offers the added bonus of an interactive photo opportunity area, so get your selfie stick ready (and maybe even another stick, if you play your meet-cute cards right.)
Launched on Wednesday, June 13, the reception for the extravaganza was hosted by Ru herself, with appearances by Michelle Visage, Zaldy and season ten finalists Asia O’Hara, Aquaria, Eureka O’Hara, Kameron Michaels, Miz Cracker, Monet X Change and The Vixen.
Showcasing the level of style and flair that we’ve come to depend on only from the drag world (since Hollywood damn sure lost all its luster and glamour – most especially post-#MeToo,) the gowns themselves are like mini-works of art, revealing just how important a queen’s dress is to her own unique architecture. Not to mention a testament to how significant shapewear is in the monde du drag performance.
