Over the weekend, Frank Ocean celebrated his 30th birthday. Such a landmark year deserved a party to match, and so Frank enlisted his pal Tyler, The Creator for a drag-ball themed extravaganza in the style of the iconic 1990 documentary Paris Is Burning. Watch footage of the event below.
In the vein of the film, attendees were dressed to the nines in glittery, sparkly looks that embody the core tenet of “opulence – you own everything.” This is far from the first time that Frank has referenced the cult film; he sampled dialogue from the drag queen Crystal LaBeija in the track “Ambience 001” from last year’s Endless.
Check out the trailer for Paris Is Burning below, and happy birthday Frank!
