Career

Originally from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Tiara took a lot of inspiration from Vietnamese pop stars' styles. Her style is a combination of everything flowy, pretty, and feminine. Tiara is known to mix Asian culture and beauty into her style giving her the youthful energy that fans have come to love. Tiara has claimed to represent the new generation of drag, where "drag is freedom, and you can be whatever you wanna be and do whatever you wanna do."


Tiara's name comes from a "My Little Pony" character named "Diamond Tiara". She was fond of both the name and the character, but since a lot of people have "Diamond" on their names, she chose "Plastique" as hers, as an allusion to plastic, a cheap material used to make luxurious Barbie dolls.


In January 2019, it was announced that Plastique Tiara would be one of the fifteen contestants to compete in the eleventh season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race”, which follows RuPaul in the search for the next American drag superstar. Plastique Tiara became the youngest contestant in the history of the show.


The eleventh season premiered on 28 February 2019. She got his makeup inspiration from watching Vietnamese pop stars, while his drag name came from the character Diamond Tiara in the “My Little Pony” franchise. He only changed ‘Diamond’ to ‘Plastique’, as many of them had already used ‘Diamond’ in their names. Her drag mother was Alyssa Edwards, a member of the House of Edwards, alongside Shangela, Laganja Estranja, Vivienne Pinay, and Gia Gunn.


She was considered to be an early favorite in the competition after proving that she can live up to the Edwards name with her dancing, lip-syncing, and performance skills. She was particularly praised for her polished, glamorous runway looks.

Tiara made her debut in the first episode of the 11th season and immediately received positive critiques. In the third episode, she participated in the show’s first six-way lip-sync challenge with Scarlet Envy, Ra’Jah O’Hara, Shuga Cain, A’keria Davenport, and Honey Davenport.


In the seventh episode, she became the winner of the main challenge but was eliminated from the competition in the ninth episode after losing in the lip-sync tournament to Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, finishing in eighth place.


Prior to her appearance in “RuPaul’s Drag Race”, Tiara caught the attention of many people on Instagram. It led him to set the record for the most Instagram followers among other contestants, before their debut appearance on the show. When he started competing, his Instagram fan base increased enormously, since his photos were shared by Tyra Banks.


Thus, he became the first drag queen to accumulate 1 million followers on his official Instagram account while the season was still on the air. He currently has over 2 million followers. He is also active on his official Twitter account, on which he has more than 227,000 followers, and he runs his official TikTok account, with over 9.9 million fans. Tiara also has a popular YouTube channel that sports over 180k subscribers.

Tiara identifies as part of the new generation of drag that learned its craft through social media. Tiara told The Hollywood Reporter, “Back in the day if you wanted to see a drag queen if you wanted to see a queen do their makeup, you had to go through the system. You had to go to the club, see them perform and somehow manage to get backstage to see where all the magic took place. Now, a lot of magic is right here on social media.”


Tiara is now one of the most popular queens on social media. Nguyen admits that internet popularity has helped his career, but it has also brought him a lot of negativity. Tiara refers to social media as a double-edged sword that can hurt you if you are not careful.


He said: “The good thing about it is that everyone has a platform out of nothing. You can build your audience and reach people out there who aspire to be like you or aspire to learn something from you. Sometimes it can be too much I feel with all the negative comments, but you’ve got to just let the good outweigh the bad.”


Apart from his duties as a drag queen, Nguyen is also known for being a hairdresser. He’s made wigs for many drag queens, including Aquaria, Naomi Smalls, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, PatrickStarrr, and others. Besides that, he is also s a music artist, releasing his debut single entitled “Irresistible” in April 2019.

Personal Life

Duc Tran Nguyen was born on April 11th, 1997, In Ho Chi Ming City, Vietnam, and spent his early years in his hometown, before he immigrated with his family to the United States at the age of 11, where they settled in Dallas, Texas. The names of his parents haven’t been revealed to the public, and it’s also unknown whether he has siblings or not. He holds Vietnamese nationality and belongs to an Asian ethnic group.


Nguyen grew up in a conservative household that shielded him from the LGBTQ+ community. Tiara told The Hollywood Reporter that he didn’t know what being gay was until he moved to America. After settling in Dallas, he began to explore drag. His family found it hard to accept his new passion, which was revealed by Tiara during an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Eventually, his parents and extended family became more accepting of him.

He told MTV: “I guess you could say that they are tolerating it, but still not accepting it. Which is fine with me for now. They’ve come such a long way from when I first started drag. They thought I was, like, prostituting myself at the club because they didn’t really understand the concept… I think it’s more tolerable now. I’m like, Oh, okay – they just view it as a job for me.”


While Tiara’s family failed to embrace who he was, fellow drag queens took him in and showered him with love. He is particularly grateful to his drag mother, Alyssa Edwards. Alyssa showed Tiara how to succeed as a drag queen, and she gave him the motivation to participate in RuPaul’s Drag Race.


Nguyen went to a beauty school. He speaks both Vietnamese and English languages fluently. Nguyen currently lives in Texas. Nguyen was in a relationship with professional hairdresser Tim Kim. Tim and Nguyen had a public relationship, but their social media posts together have dried up. Plastique hasn’t confirmed a breakup, but we suspect that the couple is no longer together. His current relationship status is unknown.
