Oscars 2019: Shangela Has Her Big Moment in Diego Montoya

Posted on February 25, 2019

SHANGELA LAQUIFA WADLEY, YOU DID IT GIRL!

 

You fabulous hunk of drag, you.

She made a point to note to the press that she thinks she may be the first drag queen to walk the Oscars red carpet in drag and that she hopes it means something to people “because it sure does mean something to me.” We can say it means a lot to us because we were just about ready to wrap up the chapter of our Drag Race book (SHAMELESS PLUG) on the acting challenges. This gives us the perfect capper for it, girl. So thank you for that.

Also, it’s good that she embraced the drag this time. We hope she gets all kinds of opportunities to walk red carpets in and out of drag, but this was a great moment of branding for her, on the largest stage of her career. It was right to turn it out in a sickening drag lewk by an accomplished costumer to the drag world. She looks fabulous.
