Distract yourself from all the crappy stuff going on in the news and feast your eyes on this video depicting the herstory of drag queen fashion. Vanity Fair teamed up with RuPaul's Drag Race alumni Kim Chi, Detox, Raja and Shangela for the video that will make you want to grab your makeup and beat your face.

The evolution shows how the art of drag has evolved from men mostly trying to "pass" as women to drag queens honing in on an aesthetic all their own. From Madame Butterfly to David Bowie, the video explores what has inspired drag from the 1920's until now (and a beyond).
