The most delightful Carson Kressley quotes that are life-changing and eye-opening
People are much deeper than stereotypes.
That's the first place our minds go. Then you get to know them and you hear their stories, and you say, 'I'd have never guessed.
I wasn't always this confident. Growing up as the awkward gay kid in a small town in Pennsylvania, you're constantly told, 'Don't be yourself, don't be proud of who you are.
Compare yourself to yourself and say, 'How can I be better? How can I be the real me?'
Whether you're gay or straight, with a physical disability, your skin's a different color, it's absurd in this age to not be aware and be concerned of the inequity in rights.
My method of helping someone is saying, 'Wow, you look amazing.
Let me help you look even better.' I think tearing someone down is an awful thing to do. It has a lasting impression on people.
I've been doing makeovers on TV for years and years and years.

I learned how to dance. I got a free spray tan. My life is good!
Boxers are hot, and by boxers I mean guys who box, not the underwear. So get rid of 'em!
On our show, I've only reached out and touched about 55 guys.
I think there's still about 40 million.
Friends think your life is so glamorous, and it is.
But there are times when, instead of going to a glamorous party, I would rather just come home from work, pop in a DVD and eat some microwave popcorn with a cutie on the sofa.
I hoped I could make people smile and laugh and have a good time.
I love music. I love going out dancing.

It's incredibly hard to program a network from scratch for 24 hours.
Show's going well. New season starting, we're on the road.
If you live your life only following the path you think is approved or acceptable, or the one you think is expected of you, you’ll be making a huge mistake. Not a single successful person… has ever done great things because they played it safe. You’ve got to be true to yourself.
