The young boy has already taken the world - particularly the fashion world - by storm with his liberal views on life.

10-year-old Desomond Napoles, who goes by the stage name Desmond is Amazing, is a self-styled drag kid who loves to wear makeup, get his nails done, and dress in fabulous clothing.

Vogue interviewed the youngster following the Gypsy Sport show in February 2018, and noted that the pre-teen was excited about being involved in a scene with so many "androgynous models" dressing in "androgynous fashion."

At a show like that, there's little to no chance of standing out from the crowd. But Napoles, being just 10 years old and 4 feet 3 inches tall, certainly makes an exception to that rule.

The youngster already has his own website, and 26,000 followers on his social media pages. By all accounts, he's already grabbed the attention of the world.

Napoles admitted that attending New York Fashion Week was an absolute dream come true for him.

“I was dying I was so happy,” he told Vogue.

Napoles first drew looks in 2015 when he attended the Pride Parade, dressed in a rainbow tutu as he danced around. A video clip of that went viral.

Since that day, he has walked for RuPaul at DragCon, and modeled for a watered down take on an Marc Jacobs design.

Napoles has also shared his coming out storing, saying that he came out of the closet the same day he came out of the womb. Fortunately, the Brooklyn native has loving and supportive parents.

One of the fashion trends that Napoles loves is the makeup artist Kabuki. The artist loves the extreme look, and the youngster loves "crazy in a good way."

In terms of makeup, Napoles confesses that his favorite form is face paint, because it tends to last the longest. But he loves experimenting with any makeup, and his latest find is lip moisturizer, courtesy of MAC at Gypsy Sport.

Among Napoles' favorite fashion houses and designers are Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Comme des Garçons, Jean-Paul Gaultier, and John Galliano.

RuPaul has already referred to the 10-year-old as "the future of America," and considering all that he stands for and has already done, it's easy to understand why.

But for now, America's future still has to focus on his school work and getting through his education before he can really take the world by storm.

In the meantime, his mother, Wendy, filters out the hatred that is often spewed at her son online. Despite the support he has from many, there are of course those who hate everything stands for.

Fortunately, he's not bothered by their opinions at all.

“I know this is kind of bad language,” he told Vogue, “but they’re dumb.”
