03. CANADA'S DRAG RACE: CANADA VS. THE WORLD

02. RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE: ALL STARS 7

01. DRAG RACE ESPANA : SEASON 2

3. I wish the vTW seasons were longer because six episodes is insulting when they're doing something like this, but it was still a marked improvement over the UK one. I wish the challenges had been a bit more beneficial to Ra'jah, but I still loved seeing her continued growth arc. ❤️ Her winning the lip sync tournament was just *chefs kiss*.

2. Honestly, I found the season kind of meh. I didn't really like the platinum plunger twist (outside of the iconic Raja Gemini calling everyone c*nts for gaslighting her cold open ❤️) and the legendary legends star format was weird. (And I hated seeing Shea not getting some wins that she should've gotten because they decided to do the 'queen who only has a chance at making the finale because of the final twist' storyline on her. :/) And the post-production ADR'd 'and the ENTIRE SEASON' after the LSFTCrown continues to haunt me.

1. Haven't seen España, but I've heard great things!

Pangina was super polished and had a lot of unconventional DRAG stuff on top of it. My favorite might be the Blu dot look because it was great to see Blu at her full potential with make-up on the show, rather than just instagram or whatever.

 

But the most memorable to me was still Mo's butch queen. With the whole runway presentation, that's the one look that stands out in my mind from the season. Maybe not the most polished or expensive but that stole the show for me.

Pangina is the highlight of the season and star of the runway with Blu & Mo!

And fair enough - it's the favourite of many. Looking back on it now, I probably could have had it a few spots higher but don't think it would have broke my Top 10 ? The series did give us good look.

3., Agreed with everything.

2. I knew you would say that but I loved it ❤️ 

1. One the GOAT season!

Since @Zoey didn't comment, I'll move on to the S14 tonight.

And I'm going to showcase 35 looks instead of 25 looks - that's about 20% looks from the season. 

Got tied-up yesterday & then had to search gifs for the 10 extra look that I added so will start today.

Again, no looks of the reunion, or lipsync or crowning or previous season queens. Accepted are the main runway categories & finale ; I will do a ranking of the other looks separately of all the series combine!

10. I didn’t love this. The head piece kind of ruined it for me because it just looked like flimsy paper.

09. This was perfection. Blu really delivered in every runway.

08. Again, perfection. It was my joint favourite look that runway with Baha’i.

07. I love how Blu carried a theme throughout the series and it didn’t become boring or predictable. This was fantastic.

06. This was beautiful. 
05. This was busy but I enjoyed it. I think it all works together.

04. This was amazing. The way that Blu paints her face to really elevate her runways. 
03. Probably her best runway from this series. It was a lot more simplistic.

02. I loved this look!

01. I didn’t like this look at all.

CHRIS' FAVOURITE RUNWAY LOOKS :

RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE - SEASON 14

 

--------------------

 

35. DEJA SKYE - SICKENING SIGNATURE DRAG

69febe82cc0c47b455184636d7ff7dac962d584b.gifv  338db9605552c76d44c78728c29fef7d8e8ee118.gifv

EPISODE: 14.02 - Big Opening #1 

 

NOTE: DeJa Skye liked to remind us that she was a seamstress but the majority of her look weren't mediocre.
Luckily for her, this one was one of her best & she truly struggled to match it for the remainder of the competition.
I personally love the contrast of the colours, and her mug is to die for here, although she looks like Patrick Starr.

 

--------------------

 

34. KERRI COLBY - NIGHT OF A THOUSAND JLO'S

2a4a790d0fdf2095673e46f3da0e7d0b213534a6.gifv  08fc12c3912f4b7fd6d0e81b7580a0a37ce25d5b.gifv

EPISODE: 14.04 - She's a Super Tease

 

NOTE: The fact that she was able to score this iconic look from JLO is remarkable.
It may not have been the most original outfit on the runway, but why fix something that's not broke?

 

--------------------

 

33. LADY CAMDEN - SHOULDER PADS

db08514ff11b82ac15f710643d6d18644b2fe373.gifv  7d03f68fe7c62f1873147a3e484ec36431cdc73d.gifv

EPISODE: 14.09 - Menzeses

 

NOTE: This look toyed the line of camp meet fashion, and Lady Camden absolutely crushed it.

My only criticism of this look is that the shoulder pads should have been the star of the outfit.

 

--------------------

 

32. ANGERIA PARIS VANMICHAELS - VIVA DRAG VEGAS

ce0f0ef2864edf8ba7991e331dbbd32c995d3516.gifv  671b60371ffe206cd59da855c3ee87fe5b11e8f6.gifv

EPISODE: 14.16 - Grand Finale

NOTE: She understood the assignment and she delivered one last time. 

 

--------------------

31. DAYA BETTY - CHAPS ON THE RUNWAY

ea283bbd283668df13e15627ecb95ea170276443.gifv  0a33b9da3a79966724de2f0522c07fe573576e13.gifv

EPISODE: 14.07 - The Daytona Wind

NOTE:  This is the perfect example that a simple look can work & be a standout of the theme,

The majority of the queens tried to elevate their look a bit too much with this theme & failed to impress.

Yeah I actually liked that Deja look and thought she had potential. Hated literally everything else and I better not see her on this list again...

 

Daya Betty is the best and should be higher than the first set

 

the rest on this list get a chop from me

She’s on, once more :giggle: 

 

You’re acting that like this is Daya’s only appearance 😛 

 

Rude and disrespectful!

35. Deja’s best look. It’s just a shame this was so early on and she didn’t live up to it going forward.

34. I wasn’t impressed by any of Kerri’s runways. This was bought or rented and had no imagination.

33. Campy but cute.

32. Probably her best look in the season. The gown alone would’ve been predictable but she added to it to impress.

31. Daya was the surprise of the season for me. This would be much higher for me!
