The Week in Drag – Another Emmy for Drag Race, Your Weekly Willam, UK Queens Are Set to Invade America and More!

RuPaul’s Drag Race once again emerged triumphant at the Emmys, taking home the Outstanding Reality Program award. Congrats to Ru and everyone at World of Wonder and VH1 for the win! Check out what Ru had to say backstage at the award ceremony in the video below. 

Mano Agapion welcomed a fellow UCB-er, the hilarious Ryan Barton (who has the best drag name ever…Bottomless Mimosa) to recap the last Untucked for All-Stars season one and share their own “It gets better” tales and lots more on the latest episode of “Drag Her.” Willam and Alaska spill the tea and dive into the DMs on the latest episode of “Hot Goss” and revisit the season three finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race with another “Raja Reflection” on “Race Chaser.” 

Season 11’s Miss Congeniality, Nina West, was at the Emmys, and has the distinction of being the first queen in full drag to walk the red carpet. Nina, Brooke Lynn Hytes and Valentina sashayed down the red carpet at the Creative Arts Emmys, while looking fabulous doing so.

Good news for US-based Drag Race fans…RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will be airing here on Logo. The new show debuts on Logo on Friday, October 11, so get ready to watch the UK’s top queens battle for the crown. 

Brooke Lynn Hytes has been tapped to be a judge on the Canadian version of Drag Race that is arriving in 2020. Brooke tweeted the news on Thursday, stating, “remember a year ago I was in the @WorldOfWonder offices, just after filming season 11, and I said “I want a Canadian Drag Race…and I want to be a judge!” Well, dreams come true! I couldn’t be more excited and honored to be a permanent judge on @canadasdragrace.”

As you know, Willam has a new cosmetics collection, called Coverboy. Included in this new collection are some fierce lashes and, for those of you like myself, who struggle with applying them, Willam provides a handy tutorial. 

And while we’re talking Coverboy, check out the coverage of the launch party (and a tour of Willam’s studio.)

In other makeup news, Willam and Rhea Litré attended the launch of Lady Gaga‘s new makeup line, Haus Labs, and are here to review the new products. Between Willam, Ru and Gaga, I am going to need some sort of social life to account for ne buying all of this makeup. I’m still trying to figure out where I can wear Mama Monster’s “face lace.”  

For another take on the Haus Labs collection, let’s check in with Jaymes Mansfield.

Jaymes is also here to help you makeover the Ru wigs from Party City to add a little fab to your Halloween or next night on the town. Here’s her latest “ru-mix”

Is your wig not so fresh? Let Ariel Versace show you the proper care and cleaning of a lace front wig in her latest tutorial.
