Season 7 LEGENDS-IN-THE-MAKING Miss Fame and Violet Chachki are giving us serious Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell vibes (or maybe it’s Roxy Hart and Velma Kelly) in their new video “I Run the Runway” (written & directed by Ali Mahdavi). It begins with our girls getting ready backstage at a nightclub, each slathering on their oh-so-exquisite beat (“Pain is beauty/if you want to slay”). Before they take the stage, Violet has an odd little make-out sesh with an out-of-drag Fame, and Fame has an odd make-out sesh with an out-of-drag Violet. They then DESTROY the club runway with their “faces sculpted by the hand of God”, driving the crowd of sophisticated Parisians into a FRENZY.
There’s a Vogue-inspired bridge:
“Marlene beauty/Norma Jean/Evangelista/Mansfield queen/Being Bettie/Dovima down/Moncler illusion/Garbo’s crown”
…before ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE. They circle each other like sharks in chum-infested waters, smearing each other’s makeup, tearing at each other’s gowns, ripping off earrings and wigs… before ultimately making out with one and other, shirtless and makeup free.
Watch the MADNESS below.
