Queer Eye's Antoni Porowski gets a fabulous drag makeover

After slaying in a technicolour silk co-ord by Sies Marjan at the CFDA Awards pink carpet earlier in the week, Antoni proceeds to stun as his fabulous alter-ego, Eva Cado.  The avocado-loving chef was given a makeover by RuPaul's Drag Race's Miz Cracker for a special Pride edition of Drag Me, a series on Them's YouTube channel that sees celebrities transformed into drag queens. Antoni also spoke of his fluid sexuality during the makeover: "I think the word that I'm most comfortable is fluid, and it's so shocking to me how that surprises people. Call yourself whatever the hell you want to refer to yourself as! It's not something that should be judged or questioned, but embraced." Hear, hear.
