Pabllo Vittar makes history on the cover of Vogue

The Brazilian drag pop star continues to break new ground.

2020-09-29

Pabllo Vittar is making even more herstory as the joint first drag queen to appear on the cover of Vogue.

The Brazilian pop artist, 25, is serving looks and self-love in this month's edition of Vogue Brazil - which also features drag star Gloria Groove on a second separate cover.

"I want, I can, I can", says Vittar in a translated excerpt from her cover feature.

"I always knew I was going to get where I am "and" It is not wrong for you to love yourself, to take care of yourself.

"People will have to learn to respect you for who you are".

With more than 10.8 million Instagram followers, Vittar is far and away the world's most popular drag queen on social media, with pop hits including 'Flash Pose' with Charli XCX and 'Parabéns'.

The South American singer - who performed at this year's Attitude Pride at Home digital festival - has three studio albums under her belt, including this year's acclaimed 111, and in 2018 become the first ever Grammy-nominated drag queen after her track 'Sua Cara' was nominated at the 19th Annual Latin Grammy Awards.

Vittar's fellow Vogue cover girl Gloria Groove is a drag star who's been making waves in her native Brazil for several years, but is set to explode on the international scene after landing the hosting gig on Netflix's new drag show A Queen is Born.

Foram mais de 45 perucas, 40 pares de luvas, 5 araras lotadas de roupas, 20 presilhas, 44 cílios e incontáveis unhas postiças extralongas no set para orquestrar as capas da #VogueOutubro, que têm como segunda cover queen, a multiartista @gloriagroove. "Vim no carro pesquisando as fotos mais icônicas da revista e absorvendo o fato de que agora chegou a minha vez. Estou vivendo um sonho e sigo emocionada com o convite porque posiciona drag queens como ícones de moda", contou ela, entre um retoque e outro na maquiagem autoral. "Fico muito feliz que a gente esteja ocupando espaços como esse, me sinto em casa. Acho que nasci para isso".
