Season 8, Episode 4
RuPunk! The versatile queen took on a blue sequin two-piece look to judge the ’80s style New Wave girl bands. Her peplum top perfectly accentuated her waist, while her long legs looked slim in skin-tight pants. Topping it all? A mohawk with hot pink accents. Werk.

Sorry, but your fave could never wear a long-sleeve tube gown with a naked image of herself on it — with a matching white afro and hoop earrings to boot — and get away with it. Ru? She can.
Disco. Graffiti. Queen. Eleganza.
Season 5, Episode 11
The race got sticky during the Sugar Ball challenge — but Ru was sweet as can be in this hot pink animal-print gown. Pebbles Flintstone wishes she was this sunning.
Season 7, Episode 10
Upon first glance, you’d think this prancing queen’s high-cut, floor-length, golden nude illusion gown can’t get any better — until Ru rips the bottom part away to reveal a sexy shorter hem. Has any gown ever had a better day-to-night transition?

Season 2, Episode 9
Ru wore this look to season 2’s Diva Awards, and she was the one who took home the top prize in this all-black dress with red silk origami-like appliqués cascading down its side. Shantay you stay.
Season 4, Episode 3
RuPocalypse Now! Bringing Grace Jones futuristic realness, this hooded metallic gown was the ultimate declaration of power. Cladding her curves perfeclty, Ru topped the foiled, fierce look with the perfect peek of her blonde hair. We’re not worthy.
Season 8, Episode 9
Could you just GAG? For the final challenge in season 8, the ladies starred in the music video for Ru’s single “The Realness.” But it was Ru’s stunning off-the-shoulder dress we couldn’t stop staring at thanks to it’s shiny fabric sparkling from every angle on the runway. The gown ended the season on a major fashion moment.
