Pearl With the Girl Earring

RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Pearl, aka Matthew James, just scored a drag-world coup by signing with Wilhelmina Models.

We are also pleased to represent Pearl for advertising and editorials.”

Meanwhile, the show's winner Violet Chachki worked with Steven Klein and models Anna Cleveland and Charlie Himmelstein on the editorial Caged Heat for the current issue of Interview.
