Happy Thanksgiving! There’s quite a lot to be thankful for today, and #1 on my list? Dot DeVille’s extravagant 90’s glam on today’s episode of Cosmo Queens. This NYC-based queen has dabbled in drag for years, but only went full throttle last September during the lockdown. We spoke to Dot a bit about the inspo for today’s look, and the moving reason why she began to pursue drag in the first place.
“I’ve always been influenced by outlandish leading women from iconic 90’s sitcoms, to include–but not limited to–Fran Fine from The Nanny, Peggy Bundy from Married With Children, and Mimi Bobeck from The Drew Carey Show. I also draw a lot of inspiration from my drag mother Vicky DeVille.”

Dot was interested in drag super early on! “[I] remember first discovering RuPaul at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in NYC when I was 11. I didn’t personally dabble in drag until I was in college after an alumni, and former classmate was tragically murdered. He loved the art of drag, so after his death, our University launched a scholarship fund in his name. We produced an evening of drag performances [to raise money for it] which turned into an annual event. After graduation life got in the way, but I’m glad to be revisiting it in my 30’s!
Now, for Dot’s killer ensembles, teamwork makes the dream work. “Most of my looks are custom-made by my husband Disco DeVille (aka Wesley Nault from Season 5 of Project Runway) who has dressed the likes of Kim Kardashian, Alyssa Milano, and Maddie Ziegler. And I have most of my wigs styled by Masayuki Akazawa.”
