'RuPaul's Drag Race': Shea creates runway look inspired by her mom, fans call it a rip-off of Cracker's dress
While fans seem to love and appreciate Jujubee and Miz Cracker's outfits, Shea's prom-inspired number fell short
This week, Shea Coulee, Miz Cracker and Jujubee are competing for the crown on 'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' 5. And the pressure is on them to deliver the best performances and gorgeous runway looks of the season. Did they deliver? They put on their best foot forward and gave it all they could. While fans seem to love and appreciate Jujubee and Miz Cracker's outfits, Shea's prom-inspired number fell short.
While talking to the judges — RuPaul Charles, Michelle Visage, Ross Mathews, and Todrick Halls — Shea revealed that her finale look was inspired by her mother who had worn a bubblegum pink gown to her prom. It must have been a proud moment for her to be able to replicate a day out of her mother's life. But fans were being unforgiving. They thought it was bland and a rip-off of one of Miz Cracker's previous runway looks.
"Don’t kill me but unpopular opinion..... not the biggest fan of Shea’s final runway. Don’t hate me... #AllStars5," a fan commented, while another shared: "Shea, the inspiration and story behind your look is cute and touching, but your look was the worst of the 3. And honestly, one of the worst of all the runway looks tonight from the cast #allstars5." "Idk that I like Shea’s final runway. She looks STUNNING but I wasn’t blown away. #AllStars5," a viewer expressed. "Did Shea just borrow one of Cracker’s dresses for that last runway? I’m confused... #AllStars5," another pointed out. "Ummm, Shea’s look isn’t on Juju and Cracker’s level on this runway tbh #AllStars5," a user tweeted.
Shea has been serving interesting and quirky looks all season and to get something so simple from her must have been unexpected for the viewers. However, the theme was elegance and she delivered on every count, right from hair, make-up to accessories. Shea was able to bring everything together into a cohesive, easy-on-the-eye look. She was not overdressed, which made her runway look all the more special. The queen played on the less is more aspect perfectly. Yes, it was all too pink but a sweet shade of pink that didn't make it an overkill.
