One of Americaâ€™s top fashion experts, Carson Kressley, will soon be striding into Roswell with hair dryers in hand and a professional styling team in tow.
The blond stylist, famed as one of the â€œFab 5â€ on Bravoâ€™s “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” will be filming an episode of “Carson-Nation” in Roswell and is recruiting locals to a makeover in front of a national audience.
â€œItâ€™s an opportunity of an lifetime,â€ Jaclyn Lenz Munzer, senior casting producer, said.
Only a handful of Roswellians will be chosen in the end, but Munzer is encouraging anyone who wants a change or a fresh start in his or her life to apply or to nominate someone deserving.
This can include someone who wants a more professional look while job searching; a divorcÃ©e who wants to delve back into the dating scene; a do-gooder who wants to host a fund-raising party; anyone who wants to look good for a high school reunion; or even a boyfriend who wants to propose to his girlfriend.
â€œPeople can expect the tone of show to be positive and fun for all involved. Itâ€™s meant to be inspiring and uplifting,â€ Munzer added. â€œItâ€™s about making people feel confident about who they are on the outside and the inside… everyone wants to make a change in life.â€
Kressley will begin his whirlwind tour across the nation in early December, making stops in California, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico. The cities were chosen at random.
â€œHeâ€™s kind of making over America town by town,â€ Munzer explained. â€œWeâ€™re all really excited about the show in Roswell because obviously it has a lot of mystique for people who have never been there before.â€
The Roswell episode will air this upcoming spring on Oprah Winfrey and Discovery Communicationsâ€™ joint network, OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network, which will launch in January 2011. Interested applicants can apply by e-mailing his or her name, contact information and brief story to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 323-860-8623. The deadline to apply is Nov. 24.
