Drag Race star Willam is getting her own fashion show
The show will see Willam discussing fashion trends.
Drag Race legend Willam has landed her own fashion show on upcoming streaming service Quibi, Fashion’s a Drag. The show sees the legend partnered with Hearst Originals, the video arm for Hearst Magazines, which owns titles like Elle.
Fashion’s a Drag, which is set to air in April 2020 will see Willam give her honest critiques on current fashion trends and news. She won’t be the only one in the show, as she’ll be joined by other drag queens, as well as drag experts from Elle.
In a statement, she said: “People have looked up to drag queens for style cues for years and that’s not just a joke about men being taller in heels and wigs.
“And since red carpets need a recapping, Quibi decided to give me a show which will utilize the two things I’m known for — my style and my mouth. Get ready to salute and dispute each week with me and my fabulous friends!”
Fashion’s a Drag isn’t Willam’s only current venture, as she’s starring in the final season of gay comedy series Eastsiders. In the final season, her character, Douglas, also known by the drag name Gomorrah Ray, marries her partner Quincy in a wedding that descends into the “ninth circle of gay hell.”
And Willam isn’t the only Drag Race icon who will have a show on Quibi, as Season 9 winner Sasha Velour landed their very own “lip sync spectacular” series.
The series, which will consist of eight episodes, will follow Sasha and the members of their team as they craft a legendary lip sync performance, all while we go behind-the-scenes of their creative process.
According to Deadline, each episode “draws us to one performer in particular, and reveals their daily life, process, and backstory, culminating in a 2-3 minute made-for-mobile visual expression of their live number, directed by Sophie Muller”.
