RuPaul’s Drag Race Winner Aquaria Makes History As The SM Store’s First Drag Queen Ambassador
She’s coming to Manila in September!
After shooting up to stardom and snatching the crown last year on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10, it seems like there’s no stopping 23-year-old Aquaria from making it big in the fashion world.
After winning the title of “Drag Superstar,” Aquaria spent months trotting the globe on a hectic drag tour, appeared in various global campaigns for Moschino, M.A.C Viva Glam, H&M, and NYX, and made history as the first drag queen to grace the red carpet at the Met Gala. Not only that, she also graced the cover of prestigious magazines such as Vogue Italia, Gay Times, and Paper Magazine. And now, the queen is ready to conquer the Philippines as retail giant The SM Store announced her as their first drag queen ambassador.
This September, New York drag queen Aquaria is coming to Manila for SM’s “biggest fashion eleganza extravaganza.” It’s a free event at Mega Fashion Hall at SM Megamall on September 2, and at The Block Atrium at SM North EDSA on September 3.
According to SM, “This is all about self-expression through fashion, regardless of who you are, whatever style you go for.” Here’s a look at the teaser of the said campaign:
In this campaign, Aquaria is styled with SM Shoes and Bags and SM accessories. “She was hands-on in the styling process, even personally selecting the merchandise for this shoot,” they said.
