When Naomi Smalls walked onto the set of RuPaul’s Drag Race and declared, “Check your lipstick before you come for me,” she secured her status as one of the most striking queens on season eight. Inspired by 1990s-era supermodels, her signature style emphasizes her slender figure, flat chest and “legs for days.” Think of the self-described “7-foot glamazon drag queen from Redlands, California” as the lovechild between Naomi Campbell and Biggie Smalls. Just 21 years old at the time of filming, Smalls (born Davis Heppenstall) was the season’s youngest contestant, giving every player a run for her money, and winning over the hearts of millions (even Naomi Campbell admitted she was a fan) on her journey to the top three alongside runner-up Kim Chi and winner Bob the Drag Queen. Smalls makes her San Antonio debut on Wednesday courtesy of local nightlife innovator Rey Lopez Entertainment. $10-$25, 10:30pm & midnight Wed, Aug. 31, Heat Nightclub, 1500 N. Main Ave., (210) 227-2600, reylopezentertainment.com
