RuPaul taught Nicole Richie how to be drag queen

Los Angeles, May 30 (IANS) Designer-actress Nicole Richie says actor-model RuPaul taught her how to nail the art of becoming a drag queen.

The 31-year-old designer met RuPaul at Decades, Hollywood's destination for vintage couture and modern luxury consignment, in California and took fashion tips from him.

"So I need to stop thinking like a short girl and start thinking like a drag queen," quoted Richie as saying.

After trying on a range of outfits, Nicole got into the swing of things.

She said: "I just don't want to regret that I didn't take advantage of my drag years."

RuPaul taught Richie how to stand, pose and walk in style before putting her into a sparkly pink gown, which took her out of her comfort zone.

"I wouldn't go this sparkly in my real life," said Richie.

To which RuPaul responded: "We don't focus on real life, we concentrate on drag. You're born naked and the rest is drag."
