A cast of icons proving exactly why they won a crown

With no eliminations and not a weak queen in the batch, this is truly a celebration of drag
There was a lot of pressure on All Stars 7. For the first time ever, the cast would be made up entirely of winners. When you’ve got a calibre of queens that have all been deemed worthy of taking home a crown, the expectations on those queens to slay it again are beyond high. If the first two episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7 are anything to go by, we needn’t worry, these queens have us in the safest and most sickening of hands – it’s a premiere for the ages. With the perfect cast and no eliminations or toxic drama – Drag Race has evolved into an immaculate celebration of the art form and the show’s legacy.
These. Queens. Are. Amazing.
Every single queen cast on All Stars 7 has brought their A-game. I feel like there was some disappointment seeing queens that we’ve seen recently back again so soon, but as soon as the episode begins and you see how hard queens like Shea, Monet and Trinity slay it so hard you realise exactly why they’re so good at Drag Race. I love that queens are really here with something to prove. Jinkx comes back and proves that she can slay a runway her way, and that’s polished and refined but never losing her charm, humour and star quality. The Vivienne stands toe to toe with the American queens and absolutely thrives. Her talent is so underrated – she can kill a runway, an acting challenge, a verse. She made me so proud watching her, and proved that whilst her win was divisive amongst people who wanted Divina to take the crown – it’s hard to imagine Divina being as strong on All Stars 7 like Viv is.
And then we have Raja. My favourite queen of all time. It’s wild to think there’s a younger generation of Drag Race…
