Freaky Friday-Sharon Needles and Runway Goth

When I discovered Rupaul's Drag Race-I was introduced to a whole new world of fabulous over-the-top fashion.  And this season's winner Sharon Needles has become my new obsession.  Her personal style is nothing like my own.  However her fierce, high-fashion, avaunt-guard, and very FREAKY look is intriguing and interesting to me.   Sharon's style is gutsy and aesthetically inspirational- and I can't take my eyes away from it or from her. Remember- none of the photos to come belong to me!

Sharon Needles on the Red Carpet:

Embodying the essence of a couture Cruella De-ville, Sharon works her signature black .

This red-carpet look is reminiscent of the ensemble Sharon wore when we were introduced to her on the show.  In this geometric and body-conscious dress and witch's hat, Sharon makes a Halloween costume look runway-ready!

Sharon Needles Editorial Shots:

This shot is scary! But the styling is top-notch. In this photo, Sharon is the fiercest Horror-Movie Villain I have ever seen!

Black-and-white are surely Sharon's favorite colors. But in this dress with dramatic ruffles and sporting a red lip-Miss Needles makes Goth look glamorous.

This look is evocative of the 80's.  Perhaps even evocative of Madonna (if Madonna was a darkly romantic drag queen). 

Sharon Needles on Rupaul's Drag Race:
 This was my favorite look Sharon showed on the runway this season.  The sheer nude dress is right on trend, but the leather accents and alien-esque hair make the look distinctly Sharon.

Want more of Sharon's look?  Take a look at some Goth on the fashion runways.  Sharon Needles isn't just a Drag Queen with a dramatic gothic flair-she's a true fashionista!

I might have a girly/funky personal style, but Sharon Needle's dramatic goth style is purely inspirational and I can't help but admire it!  Don't you agree?
