Marc Jacobs and RuPaul Kick-Off DragCon NYC With a Fab Fashion Benefit
Last night, RuPaul and Marc Jacobs welcomed guests and partied hard at the Fashion Does Drag Ball, benefitting Planned Parenthood at McKittrick Hotel. The event celebrated New York Fashion Week, along with the inaugural RuPaul’s DragCon NYC, taking place this weekend at the Jacob K. Javits Center.
RuPaul served as DJ, playing sickening music, encouraging guests to lip sync for their lives and sashay on the dance floor.
“Dancing to the beat of a different drummer is what DragCon is all about, and last night we danced, danced, danced!”
Special guests included Michelle Visage, Real Housewive’s of New York’s Luann de Lesseps, Paulina Porizkova, Nina Agdal, Derek Blasberg, Big Freedia, Kyle Farmery, Todrick Hall, Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey, Jeremy Kost and numerous contestants from RuPaul’s Drag Race including Detox, Raja, Miss Fame, Milk, Bebe Zahara Benet, Violet Chachki, among others.
