Drag Race icons Brooke Lynn Hytes and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo are the stars of Bluebella’s Pride campaign.
The duo have reunited to model stunning lingerie from the brand’s Pride Month collection.
The collection features lacy numbers in all the colours of the rainbow, with bras, thongs and suspenders included as well as nipple pasties.

In a ‘Branjie reunited’ video clip for the campaign, they’re wearing the collection’s Amina bra and thong in hot pink, alongside a sheer, fur-lined robe.
When asked who is the scariest judge on the panel, they say it’s RuPaul but “in a good way” because “his opinion matters the most”.
They add that Brooke Lynn was the shadier queen during their season, saying that fellow contestant A’keria called her “slick shade”.
The pair, who dated in real life but confirmed during the Drag Race season 11 reunion that they’d split, have reunited for the campaign.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan they revealed that there was no awkwardness and they enjoyed working together on set.
“It was fun! Being with Brooke Lynn is always a lot of fun,” said Vanjie. “We’re just kiki-ing it and it doesn’t feel like work.”
Brooke Lynn added: “It’s so much fun getting to work with Vanjie. We just giggle the whole time and laugh and have a good time. It’s really nice. We don’t get to see each other that often, so it’s always a treat.”
Bluebella has also confirmed that they are donating 10 percent of the profit from the sales of the collection to OutRight Action International, a human rights organisation supporting LGBT+ people around the world.
“I think it’s so great that they’re doing that,” says Brooke Lynn to Cosmo. “Any brand who is benefitting off of queer people and queer culture, especially around Pride Month, I think it’s just kind of a given that they should give some of that money back to the community that they’re benefitting from.”
