Sissy that walk!

The next season of RuPaul's Drag Race is almost upon us, which means 14 new queens will soon be competing to be America's Next Drag Superstar. But not all queens enter Drag Race equally. In all of Drag Race herstory, 23 queens have risen above the rest to serve up the most memorable entrances of all time. (and yes, one lucky queen made this list twice).

The sexiest Oscar looks ever

So, in honor of the Season 7 premiere (Monday, 9/7 on Logo), let's celebrate the queens who always knew how to sissy that walk.

1. Latrice Royale: Large and in charge. Chunky, yet funky. Bold and beautiful, baby, since the very beginning!
