FIRST LOOK: Gigi Hadid, Nicole Richie and More Stylish Guest Judges Gear Up for RuPaul's Drag Race Season 8

Posted on

The RuPaul’s Drag Race season 8 judging panel is truly fit for a queen.

After unveiling RuPaul‘s 12 lucky competitors earlier this month, PEOPLE can exclusively debut this season’s supertease and announce that major modeling ‘It’ girl Gigi Hadid and reality wisecracker turned trendsetter Nicole Richie are among the guest judges for season 8.

Joining Hadid and Richie as season 8 guest judges are Marc Jacobs, Vivica A. Fox, Debbie Harry and Chris Stein of Blondie, Chanel Iman, David and Amy Sedaris, Faith Evans, Pitch Perfect‘s Ester Dean, mashup-master Todrick Hall, choreographer Jamal Sims, MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts and model-actress Tasha Smith (Empire, For Better or Worse).

With the show celebrating both its 100th episode and welcoming its 100th queen into the competition, it’s only natural every detail from the workroom to the runway would be souped-up this season.
