Manila Luzon is an international drag queen most famous for her campy twist on glamour, silly cross-eyed expressions, and signature black and blonde wigs. Her tongue-in-cheek style combines humorous themes with elegant fashion; from dresses inspired by cartoon characters to iconic gowns designed after her favorite foods.
Manila first competed on the third season of the Emmy Award-winning show, RuPaul’s Drag Race. Her creativity, style and humor paved her way to the end where she finished second place and returned to RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars twice for season 1 and season 4. Manila did not walk away with the crown or cash prize; however she won adoration from viewers across the world who call themselves “Fanilas”.
Leaving a sweet taste for more, Manila soon became a pop culture sensation with appearances in shows like General Hospital, How the Bitch Stole Christmas, The Mighty Ones, and is currently hosting her own reality competition show Drag Den Philippines streaming on WE TV. She also created a lifestyle brand named “Fineapple Couture”, which sells a chic collection of attire, books, accessories, and fashion dolls.
Manila has released many popular songs like “Hot Couture”, “The Chop” and “Bring It!". Manila has partnered on global and domestic campaigns for “Maybelline”, Disney’s “Cruella” & “Mulan”, “Facebook”, “Jack Daniels”, “Bubly Bounce Water”, Universal’s “Trolls World Tour”, “Yahoo! Mobile”, “Amazon Prime”, “Orbitz”, “Absolut”, “Nine West”, & “The SM Store”.
It’s been quite a journey for Manila Luzon and she shows no sign of slowing down!
