For the last week or so, I’ve been posting my favorite wowlebrity portraits from The World According to Wonder (OUT TOMORROW!), building up to my absolute super number one favorite pictures in the book, nay, IN THE HISTORY OF PORTRAITURE, these: Thairin in drag. Yep. Every time I see these two pics, I gasp and scream “THAT BITCH!” He’s the only person to get TWO SIDE-BY-SIDE portraits, and the only person to have professional hair and makeup (the BRILLIANT Billy B and Syd Curry) – I’m so jealous. Well, not really. I mean: Who could decide between blonde bombshell Thairin and lusty vamp Thairin? Oddly enough, even though Thairin is the gayest person I know (and I know A LOT of gay people) these pics are his first time ever in drag. I couldn’t believe it either. With lips like that? What a waste. In Wigstock: The Movie, he explains that he has a highly addictive personality, and if he ever started doing drag he wouldn’t be able to stop. If these pictures are any indication of the woman he would be, I see no reason to stop. Bring it on, gurl! Give us more of that Thairrah realness! Which one is YOUR favorite?
