Shea Couleé (Ms. Couleé, if ya nasty) is a drag queen and recording artist hailing from Chicago, IL. Couleé, a costume designer known for fashion-forward editorial looks, was a finalist on Season 9 of VH1’s RuPaul’s Drag Race, where they slayed the runways and tied for the most challenge wins in the show’s history.
Since Couleé’s time on Drag Race, they’ve released multiple singles with video accompaniments, receiving critical acclaim, having videos in rotation on MTVUK and given the Best Drag Video of 2018 accolade by Billboard.
But they’re not the only ones GAGGING over Shea—recording artists like Christina Aguilera and Iggy Azalea have requested Shea specifically to join them in music videos and live performances.
Proving they’re not a one-trick-pony, Couleé has worked with makeup brand Lunar Beauty and was the face of the Lush Cosmetics 2018 holiday campaign as well as performed in a New York Fashion Week show with Opening Ceremony. On top of that, they manage a steady tour schedule, a behind-the-scenes web series (Call Me Couleé), and are working on plethora of new music.
