Not so long ago Google embraced Sasha Velour by commissioning her to lend her artistic talent in coming up with a Google Doodle. Her Marlene Dietrich’s doodle was amazing! Today, Rolling Stone published her first profile, and she’s … ecstatic, and so are we!
“Sasha Velour seems most at ease while lounging in repose, wearing a silky robe in her brand new, two-story home in Brooklyn’s Prospect Heights. It’s noon, and right after her house clears, she’ll begin the hours-long process of beating her face, cinching her waist and dressing up for Rihanna’s Fourth Annual Diamond Ball: a star-studded charity gala hosted by the pop star and entrepreneur at Cipriani Wall Street. The next morning, pictures of her in a gorgeous gown covered in gold metals and colorful jewels — and draped over with red velour, naturally — will be featured in “best dressed” slideshows and wrap-ups alongside the likes of Issa Rae, Donald Glover and Tiffany Haddish.”—Brittany Spanos/Rolling Stone
