Today would have been fashion’s biggest night out…the annual Met Gala. This year’s theme, About Time: Fashion and Duration, marks the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 150th anniversary. Due to the current pandemic, a smaller, virtual version will stream on Vogue Magazine’s YouTube channel at 6pm EST, featuring an address by Anna Wintour, live performance by Florence and the Machine, and a DJ set from Virgil Abloh.
In homage to the legendary event, a few of NYC’s notable nightlife drag queens staged an outlaw–syle photoshoot on the iconic steps of the museum, to express how much fashion and beauty mean to them as entertainers, performers, and most importantly…people! Check it out below, featuring Jasmine Rice LaBeija, CT Hedden, Nikki Exotika, Digna, Thee Suburbia, and Glow Job, (above pic by Brittainy Newman, below pics by Alexey Kim)
