Leona Winter, formerly known as Miss Leona, is the stage name of Rémy Solé,[1] a French drag queen, best known for winning the second season of The Switch Drag Race, the Chilean version of Drag Race.

Drag Name Origin

Her drag name comes from her love with lions and how they represent a quiet strength, a part of her personality. She is also a huge fan of Leona Lewis.

When she started doing drag, she worked with Lady Diamond, and decided to use "Miss" to keep the same line.

She decided to remove the "Miss" from her name, since she competed in Miss Europa Continental and it is no longer possible to have Miss as your name, and you can't win a "Miss" if you already have one.

Winter comes from the fact that she wanted her initials to look like her husband's, Lorenzo Werner (LW) and also because it goes with a commercial for Continental Europe of Miss Universe in Chicago, in which her photo had the phrase "Winter is coming" as in the show Game Of Thrones.[2][3]
