Parsippany, NY—TV star and stylist Carson Kressley likes to say he is on a mission to make over the world. Whether it’s on his TV series “Carson-Nation” on OWN or his collection for QVC, Kressley says the easy thing about his job is dispensing fashion advice. “What’s really hard—and what makes for the most amazing transformation—is changing how you feel about yourself,” he says.
Kressley will be dolling out some advice–and tossing some bon mots no doubt–when he acts as emcee on Friday, March 23 and Saturday, March 24, at Safilo USA’s Spring/Summer 2012 fashion show during Vision Expo East at the Javits Center, New York.
Kressley, who recently appeared on the 13th season of ABC’s hit show “Dancing with the Stars,” will make a repeat appearance for Safilo as it shows the latest looks from eyewear brands including Alexander McQueen, Banana Republic, Boss Orange, Gucci, Hugo Boss, Kate Spade New York, Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs, MaxMara, Tommy Hilfiger and YSL.
“It is our extreme pleasure to have Carson Kressley once again emcee the Safilo USA fashion show,” said Robin Scheer Ettinger, Safilo’s vice president of marketing. “Carson dazzles the audience with his larger-than-life personality and insightful fashion commentary which we can always count on to add to the overall excitement of the Safilo USA booth.”
Kressley will be appearing at the shows, scheduled for 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 pm, on March 23 and 24. The shows continue on Sunday, March 25 at the same times.
