The ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars 7’ contestants shared their alternative ‘Before and After’ runway ideas

For the “Realness of Fortune Ball,” the queens appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race in Wheel of Fortune-inspired outfits, one of which being “Before and After” themed. Shea Couleé appeared as the “Gold Tooth Fairy” on the runway, although she initially had a different idea for her “before and after” runway. 

“Fun fact: My original idea for the before and after runway was ‘Janet Jackson Pollock’ But I was told by production that we couldn’t use celebrity names, but could only use fictional non/licensed characters,” Shea Couleé tweeted. “Imagine my shock when I saw everyone else’s before and after looks.”

The drag performer then mentioned several runways that were actually based on real people, including Bob the Drag Queen Elizabeth. Couleé added in another tweet, “Low key, it became one of my favorite looks because I got to conceive this fictional banji faerie from the ground up.”

Yvie Oddly replied to the Twitter thread, saying that RuPaul’s Drag Race gave her the opposite instructions, later informing her that she could potentially do a fictional character on the runway. 

Other All-Stars 7 contestants shared their runway ideas on social media, including Monét X Change, who tweeted, “My first idea was SpongeBob the Drag Queen, buuuuuuut it’s a trademarked character.”

‘On the runway, the category is…”

The all-winners season came with iconic runway categories. That includes “Night of 1000 Dolly Partons” and “Pleather Principle.” There were already twists and gags for viewers/the queens, especially the new rules surrounding the “legendary legend stars.”
