In a season that has, at times, felt longer than Homer's "Odyssey," we've finally reached the epic conclusion of "RuPaul's Drag Race" season 13. The final four have been put through the paces of fashion, comedy, choreography, singing and impersonation. Now, they'll take their final walk to determine who will continue the drag legacy.

The final four revealed their red carpet looks on Instagram, offering viewers a sneak peek of what lies ahead.

Symone was pretty in pink, wearing a Jeremy Scott original, no less! Gone are the days of a hot glue gun and a trip to the consignment store. Sporting a matching blush-hued stiletto clutch, Symone was all smiles. Want to stroll down memory lane with Symone's boundary-pushing runway choices? Check out her entire season looks here.

Rosé decided to exponentially accessorize for the finale, arriving on the red carpet in a one-shoulder black evening gown and oversized bracelets that could reinforce The Empire State Building. Rosé's looks haven't always been a hit with the judges, particularly Michele Visage, but the triple-threat drag queen eventually won her over to land in the final four. Take a look at Rosé's evolution here.

Front-runner Gottmik arrived on the red carpet in a structured, architectural white and black gown, returning to her makeup roots with a ghostly white face, dramatic black lip and brow, and towering fire-engine-red wig that's one part Lucille Ball and another Joan Crawford. Always full of surprises, take a look at what Gottmik brought to the runway for season 13.

Kandy Muse's final red carpet look designed by Andrz featured an asymmetrical hemline and exaggerated shoulder in sunset yellow with a silhouette (and remaining feathers) of what looks like a crow's nest. Never short on opinions, Kandy Muse's bigger-than-life personality didn't always sync with her runway looks. Take a look at her journey here.
