Tan France cosplays as Ariana Grande to promote new Netflix show
Apr 19, 2020
Queer Eye star Tan France has dressed up as pop sensation Ariana Grande as part of a promotion for his new Netflix show.
Last May, it was announced that France had teamed up with fashion designer Alexa Chung to launch a new fashion show on the streaming platform called Next in Fashion.
The television programme, which launched on Netflix on 29 January, follows 18 fashion designers as they compete in various challenges in the hope of winning a cash prize of $250,000 (£192,081).

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines
Following the show’s launch, the Twitter account for Netflix in the US shared two photographs of France cosplaying as Grande, showcasing the pop singer’s signature style.
The television presenter wore a wig in a high ponytail, a pair of thigh-high boots and an oversized, pink sweater adorned with the caption: “Next in fashion.”
Several of Grande’s “Arianators” (the name attributed to her fanbase) commented on France’s homage to the Grammy Award-winning artist.
“Ariana Grande is serving looks,” one person tweeted.
“Wait I’m actually dying rn…. this is everything tbh,” another remarked.
Someone else offered a new nickname for France, dubbing him “Tanny Grande”.
In July 2019, fellow Queer Eye star Bobby Berk discussed how at one point, Grande had been one of his most famous Instagram followers.
However, the interior designer then revealed that she had unfollowed the Queer Eye “Fab Five”, something that he suspects may have been due to their friendship with her ex-fiancé, SNL comedian Pete Davidson.
“Yeah, she was like, ‘Thank you, next!’” Berk told PopBuzz. “I think it’s because her and Pete broke up and we’re friends with Pete.”
