She’s a winner, baby! On Friday night, drag superstar Symone—also known as the “Ebony Enchantress”—was crowned the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 13. In the finale, Symone showed down against her fierce competitors Gottmik, Rosé, and Kandy Muse by lip-synching for her life to the smash hits of Britney Spears—an iconic curtain call if there ever was one. Over the phone from L.A., Symone tells Vogue she’s still riding the high from her win on the show. “I’ve been celebrating with my friends, having a little bit of drink,” Symone says. “I’m not going to lie to y’all—I’ve been waking up to strange food in my bed, honey!”

Symone certainly earned her crown this season. Thanks to her charm, high fashion runway ensembles, and her ability to use her drag as a means to empower and educate about Black culture, she consistently stood out from the pack. “I love communicating through clothes,” says Symone. “I’ve always loved fashion, especially in Black culture, so I love molding those things together and really finding my own voice through it.” Her major inspirations, both on and off Drag Race, have always been the Black superstars who are unapologetic in their approaches to sexuality and femininity—Rihanna, Lil’ Kim, Grace Jones, and Naomi Campbell being just a few. “You put all of these people together, and you kind of get me fashion-wise,” says Symone. “I want to be the Naomi Campbell of drag, darling.”
