Celebrity Crush: I heart Jay Manuel!

I’m sure you’ve all heard of him and have seen his lovely face on TV many times. Jay Manuel is a TV personality from America’s Next Top Model and the E! Network as well as numerous other projects. He is also the host of Canada’s Next Top Model and Style Her Famous.

Jay was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on August 14th, 1972. His spunky looks and amazing style come from his mother of Italian and Czech decent and South African father of  Malaysian and Dutch descent.

Before he wound up in the world of fashion, Jay was a pre-med student and studied opera! He then eventually became a makeup artist where he has worked with the likes of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Victoria’s Secret and Revlon. He has worked his magic on numerous celebrities and made them look amazing and he is even lucky enough to be the personal make-up artist for supermodel Tyra Banks. He has worked with some amazing photographers including Herb Ritts, Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, and Francesco Scavullo.

Jay is a make-up artist, fashion photographer and model. His most recognisable role is the Art Director for photo shoots on reality show, America’s Next Top Model, hosted and produced by Tyra Banks. Affectionately known as Mr. Jay, his role on the show also includes being a makeup artist and a guest judge. I am a huge fan of Top Model and love watching Jay while he manages to transform these models from dull to glam in mere minutes. His designs for amazing photo shoots and runway shows are extraordinary.

Mr. Jay in Action!

Jay now hosts and is lead judge of the second and third cycle of Canada’s Next Top Model. He is the face of Match.com, the internet dating site and often appears on E! Network’s, Fashion Police and Live From the Red Carpet for the Academy Awards, The Grammys, The Golden Globes and The Primetime Emmy Awards.
Jay also hosts his own show on the Style Network called, Style Her Famous. This is a really fun makeover show where woman are styled to look like a celebrity they admire.
He has also introduced his own make-up line called Manuel Override which can be purchased on QVC. Unfortunately, QVC do not deliver to Australia yet so I will be looking out for this line on eBay (hopefully!).

Jay Manuel is my current celebrity crush. He is openly gay though, so I don’t think he will crushing back on me anytime soon!
Yes, I googled and this is the question – who is Jay Manuel’s boyfriend? Who knows, all I can say is that I really admire him and everything he has accomplished in his career so far and wish him well in all his future successes!

Kisses dolls,
Love Kirst xx
