Gentleman, start your engines, because RuPaul’s Drag Race is back in season!

Christmas comes early this year because not only are we getting a Christmas Special (Dec 7th on VH1) but we are getting All Stars 4 this December!

After the disappointment AS3 brought, I think we’re all ready for a new season!

On Nov 9th, all of the Meet The Queens were released, all 10 slayed their seasons and each bring something to the competition.

In the spirit of Fashion Photo RuView, I am going to “TOOT” the looks that impressed me and that slayed or “BOOT” the looks that could have been better. If a look truly blew me away, I will give it a “SHOOT”!

Farrah Moan (Season 9, Top 8)

TOOT or BOOT: TOOT

I LOVE this look from Farrah. While she may not a Vegas showgirl anymore, this look goes back to her roots and shows where she came from! Her glow up from Season 9 is astounding in the near two years!

I was not the biggest Farrah fan during Season 9. At times, I felt her whining got old. However, it wasn’t until the reunion I saw the side of her that made see the true Farrah!

I am excited to see what Farrah will bring to AS4 with the growth she’s had since her season! (Hopefully her and Valentina with have a blow out then make up?)

Gia Gunn (Season 6, Top 10)

TOOT or BOOT: BOOT 

I love Gia, however this look….is not her best…. she could have done a lot more. It is just too basic. Hair and makeup are on point, but this look is way too basic for an All Star.

There has been a lot of controversy with Gia saying she is the first trans contestant on the show….she is not. There have been queens on the show who began their transition process.

RuPaul did say in an interview last spring his views on trans contests, but I think it is important to have Gia this season of All Stars can still be successful on and off the show!

Now, how the other queens feel about her……we’ll have to wait and see for that tea!

I am excited to see how Gia has improved since Season 6!

Jasmine Masters (Season 7, Top 12)

TOOT or BOOT: TOOT

This is a gorgeous look on Jasmine! The hair, the dress, the attention to detail with the accessories on her arms and legs shows her personality and style!

Compared to many of the queens from the show, Jasmine has had much success off the show with her Youtube channel and her Instagram Lives.

I am excited to see Jasmine’s comedic and performance ability shine through this season, especially since I do not know enough about her! I am excited to see her growth since Season 7!

Latrice Royale (Season 4, Top 4/All Stars 1, Top 7/8/Miss Congeniality)

TOOT or BOOT: BOOT                  

I love Latrice, however, this dress is not flattering on her! It is just very basic, compared to other outfits has worn.

Now many are wondering, isn’t Latrice already an All Star? Yes, however, since AS1 was a train-wreck and basically made so the winner could win, it is fair she comes back to compete alone. (If a winner can come back, bring someone who is deserving for the crown.)

I cannot wait to see Latrice back on TV and show the kids who just started watching the show who a drag queen truly is!

Manila Luzon (Season 3 Runner-Up, All Stars 1 Top 7/8)

Manila Luzon (Entertainment Weekly)

TOOT or BOOT: SHOOT

This look shows what drag truly is! Every aspect of this look is perfect, even to her pose. Her makeup, the hair, and the gown show that she is not here to play!

Manila is one of the queens who truly deserved the crown her season (slight shade to Raja). Like Latrice, AS1 was not the greatest platform, so it is fantastic she is getting one more chance for the crown!

She sings, she sews, and she is beautiful! She has what it takes to be in the Drag Race Hall of Fame!

Monet X Change (Season 10, Top 6/Miss Congeniality)

Monet X Change (Entertainment Weekly_

TOOT or BOOT: TOOT

This look shows the glow up Monet has had in the few short months since her season!

Monet was a standout throughout all of season 10, however, her runways were not as stellar as her performances!

I believe that if her runways this season are at the same level as her personality and performance ability, she can make it to the top!

Monique Heart (Season 10, Top 8)

TOOT or BOOT: TOOT 

This look is very fun and is very on brand for Monique! This shows her personality and her comedic style!

I am very excited to see Monique back! I think she was a queen

that was gone too soon her season! Her drag has definitely elevated from her short time since season 10 and I am excited for her to display that!

Naomi Smalls (Season 8, Runner-Up)

TOOT or BOOT: BOOT

I LOVE Naomi, however this dress is a Boot! I love the makeup and hair but the dress is too junior high dance for me.

I know everyone was #teamBob during season 8…but I was very much #teamNaomi! I think she is very talented and will bring a lot to this season! (Side not, he is very cute out of

drag!)

She improved drastically throughout her season and is continuing to shine!

Trinity Taylor (Season 9, Final 4)

Trinity the Tuck (Entertainment Weekly)

TOOT or BOOT: SHOOT

This look is absolutely stunning! Trinity is always polished and shows everyone she is here to slay!

I was very much #teamtrinity during the season 9 finale and I am excited she is back! I know she will go far!

She has talent, she can sew, she can be funny, and she can lip sync the house down! She definitely one to watch this season!!

Valentina (Season 9, Top 7, Miss Congeniality)

Valentina (Entertainment Weekly)

TOOT or BOOT: BOOT

Valentina’s hair and makeup are outstanding. However, this dress looks like a piece of fabric with shiny shapes from Michaels.

I was not a Valentina fan at all during season. Is she a beautiful queen, yes. However, personality wise……she can be pretty arrogant.

Hopefully she remembers the words this time around (and hopefully during RENT Live too)!

My TOP picks thus far would be: Trinity the Tuck and Manila Luzon!

There were both outstanding during their seasons and have so much to bring to the competition!

Comment below your thoughts for AS4!
