About the Author

Carson Kressley is a television star, celebrity stylist, fashion designer and author. Regarded as one of the fashion industry's most sought-after makeover experts, Carson has touched the lives and wardrobes of millions of viewers around the world for more than a decade. The breakout star of the legendary Fab Five, he earned a primetime Emmy in 2004 for his role on Bravo's hit series, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. On the heels of the show's success, Carson was named host of the critically acclaimed series How to Look Good Naked, which premiered in 2008 on the Lifetime Network to record numbers in the network's target demographic of women aged 18-34, as well as adults aged 18-49.

A frequent style contributor to the Oprah Winfrey Show, Carson was plucked by Oprah to host Carson Nation on Oprah's OWN Network in 2011, in which he traveled to small towns all over the U.S. to make over America, one closet at a time. No stranger to the catwalk, he served as a judge and commentator for the Miss Universe Pageant as well as a commentator for the Miss USA pageant, and was voted fan favorite on Season 13 of Dancing With the Stars. Carson is currently a style contributor to ABC's Good Morning America and Live With Kelly! and is called on to cover the Oscars and red carpets coast to coast with his jaunty humor, wit and diamond-sharp expertise.

As a natural evolution of his ever-expanding brand, Carson's fashion line for women, Love, Carson, debuted on Shop NBC in 2012. It features women's sportswear and accessories, designed to celebrate every body type and offer glamour with an affordable price tag. He is co-author of New York Times Bestseller Queer Eye for the Straight Guy: The Fab 5's Guide to Looking Better, Cooking Better, Dressing Better, Behaving Better, and Living Better (Clarkson Potter, 2004), author of Off The Cuff: The Essential Style Guide for Men and the Women Who Love Them (Penguin, 2004) and the children's book, You're Different and That's Super! (Simon & Schuster, 2005). When he's not devoting his off-camera time to philanthropic causes, Carson can be found in the saddle. He is a nationally-ranked equestrian and was crowned World Champion Amateur Rider in 2009.
