One of America’s top fashion experts, Carson Kressley, [auth] 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 “Fab 5” on Bravo’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.

“It’s an opportunity of an lifetime,” 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 divorcée 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.

“People can expect the tone of show to be positive and fun for all involved. It’s meant to be inspiring and uplifting,” Munzer added. “It’s about making people feel confident about who they are on the outside and the inside… everyone wants to make a change in life.”

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.

“He’s kind of making over America town by town,” Munzer explained. “We’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.”

The Roswell episode will air this upcoming spring on Oprah Winfrey and Discovery Communications’ 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, or by calling 323-860-8623. The deadline to apply is Nov. 24.
