Fierce looks from RuPaul's DragCon NYC 2017

 

More than 35,000 fans of drag stormed the Jacob Javits Center in New York City on Sept. 9 and 10 for RuPaul’s DragCon, bringing a who’s who of drag royalty to the people who bow down to them. Joining a slew favorites from RuPaul’s Drag Race — including Peppermint, Kim Chi, Ginger Mij, and Bob the Drag Queen — were YouTube makeup celebs Jeffree Starr and Manny Mua, NYC nightlife legends Amanda Lepore and James St. James, and kid wonders Lactacia and Desmond Is Amazing — plus endless eye candy in the form of brightly colored wigs, makeup, rhinestone shoes, and sparkly baubles. Narrowing down the best looks of the weekend is too difficult of a task, but here are some of Yahoo Beauty’s favorites, to which we say: Shante, you stay!
