CARMEN

All Arise for the newest crowned queen.....
Carmen Farala 

of Drag Race Espana

Yes she did! I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by just how entertaining this season was, right behind the second season of the UK. It was camp and raw drag like it should be...like being backstage at a drag show. And Supremme de Luxe and the judges were completely charming, more than any other season I've seen. These queens were creative as hell and very talented, and bought things to the stage we have yet see on a season. But again, no doubt the right queen won, Carmen Farala!!! She is a lady! Ever since I saw her creations made with Ikea bags I was down with this queen. And she breaks some molds. She said in a funny confessional one of the things she dislikes the most is a drag queen who is vulgar. Carmen had a good track record, winning four top challenges and never had to lip-sync. She had some of the most talented sewing skills in the franchise and they often amazed and impressed the judges. Carmen has had a 12 year career as a drag queen, but has performed very few times in clubs. Upon entering the werkroom all she had to offer really was her confidence, her beauty and those mean sewing skills. Her first contact with drag was in Sevilla before heading to Madid with only 400 euros to her name, and perused the drag beauty pageants mostly. It's very inspiring to learn that Carmen made a life and career with such low resources.  Before the show she had never seen the US version, and was only familiar with RuPaul very little. Carmen didn't view much of the show fearing seeing too many other queens might make her lose her own essence. So I find it amazing from what little drag she came from, she held her own. And with her sewing skills taught to him by his grandmother paid off. If you did watch, we learned she can perform and bring down a number when she performed with the other top two. And can we talk about just how damned handsome he is as his male self?!?!

  1. Yes!
    Didn't you call this one? I think you said something about her when DRSpain started. Very, very pretty. And classy! Didn't she totally change one of her runway looks during filming because other queen had the same look? No Madonna kimono situation for her.
    I loved her runway presentations. I have to watch the finale complete, but she was awesome.
    Well deserved.
    And yummy as a boy!

    XOXO

    1. Yes, I had the feeling either she or Killer Queen would take the crown. I loved this season, one of the most charming of all seasons, and again didn't need to use the extra glitz and games of the US versions. Supremme de Luxe was like the old RuPaul of being a mentor and the girls respected her truly where I feel Ru now in some ways demands it.

  6. I loved Carmen!!!!! Is it just me, or are the guys on the international versions both stunning queens and very hot men out of drag? Most of the US queens, look like shit as boys, with exception to a few. Our boys put more effort into their drag then they do their male persona.

  7. I was Team Carmen all the way. But if the judges had done a last minute swerve, based on the video and on that final runway look and given the crown to Killer Queen, I would not have been too upset - she's also fabulous. But Carmen's sewing talents were incredible....

  8. Carmen's high drama in that finale lip sync gave me chills.

  9. I am absolutely in love with Carmen Farala. I also think the level of vulnerability she showed at the end was insanely endearing. At first I pegged her as a narcissistic looks queen, but she impressed the *pardon my Spanish* cono out of me. I'm a stan forever and ever. Long live Farala!

  10. What an elegant lady (and what a gorgeous man). Carmen's elegance bleeds into her couture, or should that be haute couture? The clothes she makes for herself are more haute than most "designer" fashion. And that last pic....the epitome of elegance.

  13. I like Carmen's gold and silver outfit with matching boots.... so hard to believe she's a guy (and a good-looking one too)!! It's amazing what make-up, wigs, padding and attitude can do, LOL!
