Xavier Hairston, known better by her drag name DiDa Ritz, rose to fame competing on the fourth season of the hit Logo TV reality series RuPaul's Drag Race.
Prior to becoming a drag performer, she attended the International Academy of Fashion and Design to study fashion. She then began dressing in drag to exhibit her portfolio.
A fan of old Hollywood glamour, she created her drag name by combined the inspiration of Dita Von Teese with her favorite hotel, the Ritz Carlton.
Her mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother all taught her to sew, inspiring her interest in fashion. She is the son of a pastor.
She competed against season four winner Sharon Needles on RuPaul's Drag Race.
