I admit: Pearl, despite the flaws of her post-show antics, is one of my all time favorite RuPaul’s Drag Race characters. She shouldn’t have been top three, no, but she and Katya were the only queens with any character this go around. So what does her future look like? Modeling may be the answer, yes.
Turns out, Pearl actually was featured in a Wilhelmina model showcase. The agency had pearl take on various characters and fashionable personas, all of which featured the talent of various makeup and hair and photography stars. She looks super rad in many of them and, yes, you can see that this may be something that Pearl gets a gig doing permanently. It’s quite befitting!
You can catch all the images here and some of my favorites below. Can this happen with more of my favorite queens? Please? I can even suggest photographers that I’d like to see them collaborate with.
