We Have ‘A Big Lesbian Crush’ On Reneé Rapp At The ‘Mean Girls’ Premiere

Rapp’s look was the perfect nod to the OG Regina George.

Millennials and Gen Z don’t agree on much (skinny jeans, emojis, side parts just to name a few) but we have most definitely come together in anticipation for the Mean Girls movie musical, out this Friday.

Queer icon Reneé Rapp played Regina George in the Broadway musical and will also play her in the upcoming film. Last night, Rapp paid homage to the original Regina George, played by Rachel McAdams, by wearing a (queer, c*nty) version of George’s Spring Fling dress to the Mean Girls premiere.

Rapp drove both butches and femmes crazy in a Cristian Siriano black tuxedo dress with a baby pink corset on top. The tuxedo served masc realness with structured shoulder pads, with a pop of femme coyness thanks to its daring slit. The corset’s rigid shape was balanced by its delicate color and lace. She topped the subversive look off with pointy leather heels and chunky silver jewelry.

Rapp’s look was the perfect nod to the OG Regina George, who wore a baby pink satin strapless dress in the Spring Fling scene in the 2004 film. (And we can’t forget about her black neck and back braces compliments of her little bus accident.)

What a fetch tribute.

Rapp was joined by original star Lindsay Lohan, producer Lorne Michaels and writer Tina Fey on the pink carpet. She was also photographed with Megan Thee Stallion, with whom she released an official Mean Girls song with last month.

Rapp has dropped hints that Regina George might be a lesbian in the new film. Her and Megan Thee Stallion’s song “Not My Fault” is a play on a quote from the original movie: “It’s not my fault you’re, like, in love with me or something!” Not only is the song pure pop goodness, but some of the lyrics have the lesbians raising their eyebrows.

You might be thinking, they can’t be that obvious, can they? Well, the chorus starts with the line “It’s not my fault/ You came with her but she might leave with me.” In the second verse, Rapp sings, “Get her number, get her name/ Get a good thing while you can/ Kiss a blonde, kiss a friend/ Can a gay girl get an, ‘Amen?’”

As of right now, there’s no confirmation that Regina George is queer in the 2024 musical adaptation of Mean Girls, but Rapp’s lyrics have all of our hopes up.

Rapp, who is a bicon herself, has pushed for the queer narrative for Regina from the beginning. She even shared a photo of herself from the Mean Girls press junket in December with the caption “Regina George was a lesbian.”

All of our questions will be answered on January 12, when the movie finally hits theaters, and we can see Rapp bring her (potentially queer) Regina George to life.
