Hasan Minhaj is getting some fashion tips from his friend and “Queer Eye” star Tan France in celebration of the one-year anniversary of Netflix’s “Patriot Act”.
In a video shared on Monday, the comedy show host and fashion expert, whose styling makeover video went viral just over a year ago, reunite over a Skype call to look back at Minhaj’s best and worst looks on the show.
“You obviously have had a huge impact on my life and the fashion choices that I’ve made,” Minhaj tells France. “This is our one-year anniversary of ‘Patriot Act’ [and] I want you, Tan France, to judge the outfits I wore on ‘Patriot Act’ this year.”
Recalling his favourite look on the show, France says that he loved the shirt and jacket combination Minhaj wore in the “Drug Pricing” episode: “I liked that it was layered, so it was more than just a top and I liked the colours. I thought that it looked really slick and I thought that it looked really expensive.”
However, France admits that there is one item — or a few in particular — in the TV host’s closest that he needs to lose.
“My God, you wear a lot of sweaters and it looks like you’ve got one in every colour,” France contends. “Going forward, I would love to see something just a little different from a sweater.”
To fix Minhaj’s sweater craze, the fashion designer and author says, “Add that jacket. An added layer makes it look like you put a lot together.”
While Minhaj agrees with France, the pair disagree when it comes to one of the host’s favourite looks this past year: a “jazzy” set of checkered pants.
“This was my least favourite look of the season. I’m sorry,” France says. “I don’t like a jazzy pant.”
Wrapping up the call, France says that he promises to dress Minhaj once again, but for real this time around.
“Last time I was just f***ing around; I would never put you in half of that stuff,” he says. “This time we’re not playing. Like, if we do it I want to put you in things that I truly would put you in.”
