The Ball Scene's Brightest Queens Serve Fashion Realness

By: Brandon Voss

First crank up "Let's Have a Kiki" for the millionth time. Then prepare to meet today's legendary children.

Photographed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and styled by Timothy Reukof for Paper's October nightlife issue, the fiercest members of NYC's Kiki and Mainstream house ball scenes are getting the attention they crave and deserve in a gag-worthy fashion shoot you gotta see to beweave.

Paris is still burning, hunty, but it's time to snap for contemporary runway workers like Chi Chi Mizrahi Unbothered-Cartier, Shantel Pucci, Titi Juicy Couture, Jocques Unbothered-Cartier aka Prince Charming, Pony Zion Garçon, Precious, Tyra Allure, Mother Trace Mizrahi, and Twiggy Pucci Garçon.
