Style Icon – RuPaul
This ‘ladyboy’ is not only a style icon, but also a gay icon. In the 90ies RuPaul became a well-known personality in the NYC club scene, mainly in the ‘Pyramid club’. After performing as a back-up vocal for some years and small acting jobs as drag and as non-drag he came with his first hit albums in 1993. This year was very important for RuPaul’s career, he presented at the MTV awards and had a hit in the UK-charge with Elton John. Last but not least MAC Cosmetics signed him as a model for their campaign. Here are some of Hunters’ favorite looks from RuPaul’s earlier career.
RuPaul became the first drag Supermodel. Many albums, model and acting jobs followed. In 2008 he started the show: RuPaul Drag’s Race. America’s Next Top Model, but than for drag queens. Currently RuPaul is mostly known for this popular TV show in which he presents as drag and as non-drag. At Dragrace ‘Mama Ru’ appears in the most stunning gowns and wigs. Yes it’s a drag, yes it’s over-the-top, but we can learn a lot from RuPaul when it comes to dressing up, applying make-up and wearing wigs. Here are Hunters’ favorite RuPaul looks from 2014.
And remember: If you can’t love yourself, how the Hell you are going to love somebody else? Can I get a gAy-men?
