Why did Art Deco become the international style for drag? What is it in common between drag and Art Deco?

I would say the link between Art Deco & Drag is boyish looking women and good, clean lines. Also, since many of the drag "icons" were stars during the '30s and '40s, the style would seem to be a natural.
Just an educated guess.
