A Taste Of The 'Paris Is Burning' Ball

In my Paris Dupree post I briefly touched upon the Paris Is Burning ball from which the documentary movie took its name.   The scenes in the documentary are from the 1987 ball.   While searching for video of Paris Dupree to add to the post ran across some classic video of the 1991 ball uploaded to YouTube..

I'm posting the femme queen face, high fashion, and femme queen luscious body categories.   The femme queen designation are the categories that transwomen compete in the ballroom scene. 

There's also femme queen realness, runway and voguing in addition to the other special ones that make up a ball competition.  

I like posting the video from the late 80's and early 90's because you see not only the legendary girls, but you'll note how laser focused they were for the most part of projecting a classy, feminine image.
