The Fab Five from Queer Eye is saying goodbye to Kansas City and hello to Tokyo with the help of international fashion icon Kiko Mizuhara in the miniseason Queer Eye: We're in Japan! In this four-episode special, Mizuhara guides Antoni Porowski, Tan France, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, and Jonathan Van Ness throughout the streets of Tokyo as they give tenderhearted lifestyle makeovers to four Tokyo residents.
Although born in Dallas, Mizuhara moved with her parents to Tokyo at the age of 2 and began her modeling career in the city at the age of 13. Since then, Mizuhara has captivated Japan in runway shows, starred in iconic Japanese films, and spread her influence internationally with her own fashion brand, OK, aka Office Kiko.
Being such a major societal figure in Japan makes Mizuhara a great person to help the Fab Five immerse themselves in the nation's culture in this new season. Here are some fun facts about Mizuhara and a quick glimpse at some of her Instagram posts that'll help you get to know her better.
