Catching up with Carson
Fashion philosopher of “Queer Eye” gets a leg up on Dallas shopping
By Daniel A. Kusner Life+Style Editor
Keeping up with Carson Kressley is exhaust-
ing. He has the energy of a 10-year-old jacked
up on Ritalin and Diet Coke. He’s a fashion
tornado of observations and hilarious
When “Queer Eye’s” fashion savant
breezed into Dallas last Saturday to host
the Turtle Creek Chorale’s annual
Antiques to Zebras auction, he agreed to
a quickie interview. During our brief
interlude, Carson hugged me, tweaked my
nipples and then accused me of pumping
him for information. Here’s what I got
before he raced over to NorthPark Mall
for a spree at Neiman’s.
You’re in Dallas — ever been here before?
Many times. I used to work for Ralph
Lauren, and we had a showroom in the
Apparel Mart. So this isn’t my first time at the
gay rodeo.
Can you characterize
Dallas’ fashion taste?
Everything is bigger in
Texas, which is an epidem-
ic everywhere. People don’t
know what size they are. so
they wear gigantic clothes. I
haven't run into any really
big and hot cowboys in
Dallas yet. but I’m hoping.
HIP TIPSTER: Kressley visited Dallas last weekend to help tszuj the Turtle Creek
Are you scouting oca- Q|,ora|e's annual Antiques to Zebras auction. The Fab Rve are scheduled to wsit
tions during your visit? Dallas in September to shoot three episodes.
We’re coming to Dallas ---
in September to do three
“Queer Eye” episodes. My life is scouting,
because I shop for a living. But I’m really just
having fun. I wanted to help out the Turtle Creek
Chorale. And when they called me, I thought it
was a corral — like a petting zoo. I thought there
would be goats and sheep, and maybe some little
piggies, if you know what I mean.
Has “Queer Eye” ever visited other cities?
No. We’ve only shot in New York — except
for the pilot, which was shot in Boston.
So why Dallas?
Because I love hot men in Wranglers. It was
going to be either Texas or Chicago, and quite
frankly, I like Texas better. Plus Dallas has fabu-
lous resources — like amazing shopping. It’s the
home of Neiman Marcus, JC Penney and almost
all things in between. Don’t even get me started
on Frito-Lay.
In your grand vision, what’s the purpose of
The purpose of clothing is to cover your body.
Fashion is the total other extreme. Being “in fash-
ion” means “of the momenf’ and what’s current.
I’m not a big fashion person. And upon hearing
that, you can audibly gasp.
[Carson grips my lower jaw and pulls it down
while I gasp. Then he does it again.]
