This experience is so much more than just new clothes to the British-born fashion advisor, however; it’s about real-life issues, changes, and acceptance on all sides.

Following the global success of Queer Eye, Tan recently released his New York Times best-selling memoir, Naturally Tan, as well as the 1st season of his viral YouTube series, Dressing Funny, which features him making over his celebrity friends, including Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Nick Kroll, Miranda Sings, Pete Davidson, and John Mulaney.

Prior to his media career, Tan was the creative mind behind successful brands including the popular ladies clothing lines, Kingdom & State and Rachel Parcell, Inc.
