RuPaul's Drag Race contestant Symone channelled an iconic Paramore era this week, and it looks AMAZING. It's a throwback to lead singer Hayley Williams' aesthetic during the Riot! era, and it's on point.
The challenge for the runaway section of this episode of Drag Race was Haute Pocket, which saw Symone wearing a full denim outfit with a big zipper. All the looks were great (but this one has to be our favourite).

To complete the look, Symone wore a huge red-orange wig, reminiscent of Hayley's hair during that time. It's definitely out there, but it's so cool to see a tribute to Paramore on Drag Race.
Hayley posted about the look on her Instagram story to celebrate Symone, as well as her stylist and Good Dye Young co-founder Brian O'Connor. "The fact that @colormebrian / @gooddyeyoung created a look for me that gets recreated as drag is the HIGHEST COMPLEMENT. Holy shit." We couldn't agree more!
Posting about the look on Instagram, Symone wrote, “Scene ‘Mone pumpin down the runway!” she writes. “It was so much fun to show this side of me.
"The scene/emo kids always accepted me when I was growing up, so I wanted to pay homage to them on the runway! Baby, y’all didn’t know til y’all knew, did ya? 😂 🤘🏾👅🔥 #dragrace”.
