Well kids, not that you care, but I drove in from upstate and spent an hour and a half at MAC in a makeup chair to go to RuPaul & Marc Jacobs‘ Fashion Does Drag Ball at The McKittrick last night. So, I made an effort as the invition was a video of Ru INSISTING that full drag was mandatory to get in. You can see, I did the makeup part, from my pink carpet shot. (I took selfie with Ru but I looked hideous, so I reshot it adding in a less hideous one and Ru’s sweet smiling face.)
The pink carpet got started a little late. Ru came out and said hey while we waited curbside for the queens to arrive… and they FINALLY did. Milk, Detox, Kyle Farmery, Violet Chachki, BeBe Zahara Benet (Camerooon!) Fredia (whose new season premieres Tuesday!), Michelle Visage, Toddrick Hall, Countess Louanne, Parlina Poriskova and on and on…
By the time I got upstairs the joint was jumpin’ to the sounds of Ru DJing and giving us vintage dance floor burners. As you can see below, DJRu would jump out and hit the floor, so we were all just kicking our legs up and dancing like there was no tomorrow. Total fun. None of the kids were too cool for school, cause Ru kept the beats goin’. (If this drag thing doesn’t work out, he’s got somethin’ to fall back on…)
Mr. Jacobs of course was there with his bf, Charly Defrancesco and WOW founders, Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato both donned pink wigs and shook their groove thangs. Miss Fame gave some lovely face to a nasty song on the dance floor. The MAO PR brothers, Mauricio and Roger Padilha were out and Paper‘s Mickey Boardman and Page Six were there along with a few photographers but it was only about 100 people or so, and it thinned out to the hard core disco divas at the end.
Are you jealous yet? It really was FUN. DragConNYC starts tomorrow, so I’m going to take a nap now and go over to the Javitts Center while they are setting up and I’ll give a preview later. Are you coming?
There are more parties tonight and tomorrow… no full drag required for me, THANK GODDESS!
