Drag has become so prominent in the mainstream that the woman on the treadmill next me was watching Ru Paul’s Drag Race on her iPad. But that’s pale in comparison to what went down over NYFW.
10 year-old Desmond Napoles – known online as Desmond Is Amazing – sissied that walk for Gypsy’s runway to a chorus of ‘YAASS’ and ‘WERK!’ – and that’s what he did.
The self-professed drag kid and founder of the first drag house for kids (Haus of Amazing), wore heeled patent boots, a ruffled collar and monochrome nails; very Renaissance in mourning.
After introducing the first DragCon on the East Coast with Mama Ru herself, Desmond says he plans too attend Paris Fashion Week and hopes to one day be on the cover of Vogue.
You’re doing amazing sweetie!
