Funny how women are now embracing the drag queen style of makeup and dress… ! The legendary drag queen, Divine, was the inspiration for at least one or two of Disney’s female villains…

That was really cool.

I kinda wish they’d gone further with the Cruella makeup; she’s such an extreme character that you can push her look a lot more than just a wig.

Drag is basically a cartoonish caricature of women’s makeup and fashion, so it makes sense that actual cartoon characters would go in a similar direction.

It’s a pity that Divine never lived to see The Little Mermaid. Friends of hers have said she would have loved it.

RuPaul and numerous drag queens took their inspiration from Divine and

In season 7, they even did an homage theme for the late, great Divine and John Waters;
