For us, Mardi Gras is all about celebrating the LGBTQ+ community, but most importantly it’s a night for us to dress up, put our skimpiest dress on (think Paris Hilton circa 2000) and throw glitter with zero judgment. It’s a night you can dress to the nines, wear the highest heels you can find and sparkle the night away while dancing to Kylie Minogue rubbing shoulders with the most fabulous drag queens on the dance floor.
So what does one wear to the biggest queer party in Australia? Think pink, glitter from head to toe and shoes that would make Carrie Bradshaw gasp!
Pretty in Pink
Think barbie chic, a pink mini dress and sunglasses will make going from a drag brunch to the parade, a ladylike breeze.
