Considering this look was completely sewn from sleeping blags, how could it not be on this list? The silhouette, the colours, the talent, unforgettable!

The definition of an elevated look. So unique and perfect. This showed that Rosé came to slay the competition right from the beginning.

GottMik proved herself to be a true fashion queen throughout the whole competition, and this look is no exception. Sleek, but elevated. Simple but unique. A fantastic look.

GottMik has shown so much throughout her run on the show, and when she begins with this look in one of the first episodes, you know she’s going to be good. And so she was! An iconic and signature look for GottMik.

3. GottMik’s Little Black Dress Look

GottMik stated on her Instagram caption: “Walking down the runway with my body and top surgery out was such an important moment for me. When shooting this I wanted to pay homage to all of the trans women that have inspired me and showed me that drag is for everyone!”

Not only is the look fantastic, but so is the representation. Being the first openly trans man on the show, and being able to express himself completely as a drag artist is inspiring!

2. Symone’s Train Look

I mean, come on, a durag as a train? Who thinks of this! Well, Symone does. I think we all audibly gasped upon her entry on the runway. We love seeing her celebrating black culture like this.

1. Symone’s Fascinator Look

Goosebumps.

A sleek simple, white dress, and gorgeous fascinator, until she turns around and reveals “Say Their Names” written in blood on the fascinator, and bullet holes in her back. This is Symone appreciating her black excellence, while taking one of the biggest stages in the world as an opportunity to fight for Black Lives Matter movement, in a shocking and unforgettable way.

This piece will never be forgotten. It’s so important to see somebody taking that opportunity to fight and spread a message. Powerful to say the least.
