Carson Kressley may be perceived as a jet-setting New York City fashionista, but there's more to what meets the eye. The television mogul is primarily a designer and stylist but is able to take up varied roles through the day effortlessly. When not dishing design advice, Carson is a judge, TV presenter, author (his titles are: 'Does This Book Make My Butt Look Big?: A Cheeky Guide to Feeling Sexier in Your Own Skin' and 'Unleashing Your Personal Style'), and actor.

With a roster of gigs like that, it isn't hard to imagine that he's worth millions. A Celebrity Networth article reported that he's worth $8 million, most of which is understandably spent towards doing up his Park Avenue pad and the farmhouse, which require massive upkeep given the vast expanse of land it sits on. He has barns, a vegetable garden and lots of interesting rooms that offer beautiful outdoor views. 

What is Carson doing now?

He is a judge on 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 13 and has been a regular on the show since 2015. Before he landed this permanent job of sorts, he was on Season 13 of 'Dancing With The Stars' as a participant. He also hosts his own shows such as 'Get a Room' and is a horse exhibitor, which he was once awarded for.

Although there have been rumors that he once dated his 'Queer Eye' co-star Thom Felicia but the truth of the matter is, they serve as wingman for each. Talking to The Daily Dish, the besties shared how they have been more like sisters than anything else. "We kind of grew up together in New York City ... no, we have never been romantically involved. We're pretty good finding dates for one another," Carson elaborated.

Does Carson have plastic surgery history?

Carson may have never gone under the knife but photos suggest there have been botox and lip fillers involved. Talking to People about glowing skin and the beauty regime he follows, Carson shared that he owes all of it to "good genes, bronzer, and a tiny bit of botox" but not before he joked about how he uses anything and everything that come in free gift bags.
