We all know Jason Wu, that amazing designer who is always dressing some lady named Michelle Obama, loves him some RuPaul. He frequently speaks about his love of RuPaul’s Drag Race and has designed a total of six RuPaul dolls, but in a recent interview he revealed he would be giving Ru the ultimate compliment — naming an eyeshadow palette after her in his new makeup line.

Well, to be clear, not Ru specifically, but that famous line she uttered when she took the stage at the Drag Race season four reunion special: “Excuse my beauty, bitches.” Mr. Wu, of course, dropped the “bitches” part.

This all came up when Mr. Wu chatted with T: The New York Times Style Magazine, where he also revealed that though he loves the show, he doesn’t think he’ll ever be a judge. “I made a rule not to be on reality shows. But I really wanted to do it,” he said.

Maybe there’s still hope.

Also, what color do we think Ru’s eyeshadow palette is?
