Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Baltimore Mayor, Gets Makeup Tips From RuPaul


Just another reason to love Charm City, a.k.a. Baltimore, Md.!

Not only is Baltimore the hometown of legendary John Waters (and his former muse, Divine), it throws a fabulous Pride parade, and hosts the annual Honfest which brings out the city's most... colorful citizens, now the mayor of the city, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake says she gets her makeup tips from a surprising source: RuPaul.

In the latest issue of The Sun Magazine, which comes with The Baltimore Sun, Rawlings-Blake is one of the magazine's "50 Women to Watch," and in the interview, she is asked: "What's a fact about yourself that will surprise people?" Which she replies: "I get my makeup tips from RuPaul. I watch his 'Drag Race' show in freeze frame so I can get good tips."
