Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness’ unlikely style icon? Baby Prince Louis
Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness has found an unlikely fashion icon in recently christened Prince Louis.
The Netflix star and grooming expert told Entertainment Tonight that he was living for Kate Middleton using the same christening gown for all three of her children and that he wanted his own adult version of the royal garment.
Prince Louis was born on April 23 and, in keeping with the royal family tradition, he was christened quickly after his birth, on July 9.
Just like his siblings, Prince Louis wore a 2008 Angela Kelly gown that was commissioned by Queen Elizabeth II.
Van Ness was initially discussing his plans to be the ring bearer at his Queer Eye co-star Karamo Brown’s wedding in the fall when the gown came up.
Brown told Entertainment Tonight he had asked Van Ness to be his best-mate, but that the grooming expert felt more enthused with the idea of playing ring-bearer.
“I said, ‘Do you want to be my best man?’ And he’s like, ‘No, I want to be your ring bearer, your little ring girl.’ I’m like, ‘OK, honey, you can be my ring girl, whatever you want,’” Brown said.
Talking about Prince Louis’ gown, Van Ness said: “[…] did you see the christening gown? I have to say, Princess Kate [Middleton], like, yes, recycling fashion, thank you for giving me permission to recycle things.”
“I want a 31-year-old six-foot tall version of the christening gown. I need one!”
