Before we get to the usual diet of frantic fashion and desperate drag queens (see visual aids below), we spent some time talking about non-reality TV-related topics, darlings. Because if we did another all-reality podcast, we fear our brains would soften considerably. Besides, both episodes (RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars & Project Runway) this week were kind of dull.
And what were those topics, you ask? The first was all about T & Lo GOING OFF on some Vogue fashion editors who said some bitchy things about fashion bloggers. On the surface, this might all sound a little “inside baseball,” but it gets to the heart of our thinking both on the tone-deafness and insularity of the fashion world and the struggles of independent bloggers even today, even if they have millions of readers and/or move millions in merch.
Then, after all the reality TV stuff is out of the way, we have a grand old time discussing the life and career of legendary old Hollywood costume designer Orry-Kelly (see visual aids, in the form of Natalie in Gypsy, Marilyn in Some Like it Hot, and Bette in Jezebel above), spurred on by the watching of a (problematic, admittedly) documentary on the man and his work called The Women He’s Undressed, which is now available on streaming platforms.
RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE ALL STARS
So it’s basically, blogging, fashion, drag queens and costume design. Pretty much the quintessential T Lo podcast. Dive in, darlings!
