RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9 winner Sasha Velour is coming to The Bold Type, Freeform’s series about best friends navigating career, life, and love while working at Cosmopolitan-esque magazine. And Aisha Dee, who plays Scarlet magazine’s bisexual social media guru Kat, could not be more excited about the guest spot.
"She’s incredible. More arresting, visually, in real life than even on camera, which is unbelievable,” Dee says about Velour in a video about the episode. “Her style and the way that she is taking drag to this new place where it’s about art too and it’s about the story.”
The episode that features Velour centers around a queer prom fundraiser Kat throws to try to save a beloved watering hole for queer women. In the episode, the bar crowd goes wild when Velour arrives at the prom on the arm of Scarlet's Editor-in-Chief Jacqueline (Melora Hardin).
Dee also credits Velour with offering up some off-camera beauty secrets.
“She gave me and my makeup artist some tips — how to set things and stop from being so shiny,” Dee says.
