In case you don’t remember, last year, there was a fashion frenzy over FRAKTA. In April 2017, Balenciaga released a $2,000 knockoff of the big blue IKEA bag, and almost immediately, the internet exploded with other ways to wear the bag, including hats, Air Jordans, and yes, even thongs. But now, another IKEA staple is poised for its day in the spotlight, thanks to RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Hats off to drag queen Asia O’Hara for walking this week’s headwear-focused runway with a bold headpiece that definitely looks like IKEA’s popular MASKROS pendant lamp.

We’ve seen this sputnik meets dandelion inspired lighting in a wide range of spaces, and it’s been customized in many ways over the years. But we’ve yet to see someone wear it—until now.

We’ve reached out to Asia via Instagram for comment, and will update if and when we hear back.

Hat tip (pun very much intended) to our former executive editor (and total Drag Race fan girl) Janel Laban for clocking that hack on Instagram:
