Carson started his career as an independent stylist and became invaluable to major designers such as Ralph Lauren. After working for Ralph Lauren from 1994 to 2002, Carson’s expertise pushed him straight to his first television role in the Emmy-winning show Queer Eye. Carson was one of the five savants who were helping the guests improve their lifestyle and self-confidence. Specifically, Carson was the clothing expert who would revamp guests’ wardrobes.

After Queer Eye became a success, Carson gained exposure in another fashion show How to Look Good Naked where he acted as a motivational host. The show aimed at increasing the self-confidence and self-esteem of guests who felt ashamed of their bodies. Carson also appeared on Dancing with the Stars, where he performed with the ballroom dancer Anna Trebunskaya. 


Carson prides himself on his own fashion collection for men and women launched in 2006 on QVC. According to him, his participation in the makeover shows helped him realize that people’s wardrobes run short of basic clothing items. His collection of reinvented basics came to fill this gap. He also crafted the collection “Love, Carson” which contained stylish clothes for fashion-forward women.


Aside from being a TV personality, Kressley is also a New York Times best-selling author. His collection of books mainly focuses on instilling confidence and self-esteem in insecure individuals. Kressley uses inspiring stories from his own life and his experience in makeover shows to prove to people that small changes can revolutionize your internal dialog. He further teaches people to accept their bodies and look for ways to highlight and accept their bodies instead of landing in a depressive cycle. Lastly, he gives readers secrets and tips on finding their own distinct style. 

Philanthropy & More

A strong supporter of many philanthropic causes, Kressley uses his celebrity to advance different concerns such as The Trevor Project, The Human Rights Campaign, AIDS WALK, and the Al D. Rodriguez Liver Foundation. Kressley is also a trustee on the board of The True Colors Fund, The American Saddlebred Museum, and Thomas Jefferson University. When Kressley is not starring on stage or screen, he can be found with his American Saddlebred show horses, with which he has achieved World Champion status.
