As the fashionably flamboyant front man for the makeover quintet known as the "Fab Five," Carson Kressley used his innate fashion sense and garrulous personality to achieve celebrity at the height of the early reality television craze of the mid-2000s. After an eight-year stint with iconic fashion designer Ralph Lauren, Kressley came to national prominence as one of the stars of the wildly popular reality show, "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" (Bravo, 2003-08). Openly gay and proud of it, he became one of the most visible icons of the "metrosexual revolution," and, along with his stylish co-hosts, was credited for helping de-stigmatize fashion for millions of clueless heterosexual men all across America. During his run on "Queer Eye" and in the years that followed, Kressley parlayed his popularity into a myriad of book deals, movie cameos and more television work, including a show of his own, "Carson Nation" (OWN, 2011- ) and a run at the glitter ball trophy on season 13 of "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ), making him one of America's most trusted and beloved self-improvement/fashion gurus.
