41 years ago today, in a small village in Pakistan, a lovely woman we are all indebted to, eternally, gave birth to Tanny Banny Fofanny France (actual name). From his early days on earth, he was not like the other boys. He demanded his mother’s milk be used for tres leches cake, and started his Greek yoghurt & green tea face mask routine while he was still pooping his diaper, into which he would tuck custom bedazzled kurtas. As he grew older, his rebellious nature continued to be apparent when he decided to “free the belly button” and literally invented what is now known as the modern day crop top. As if that wasn’t enough, until 2018, the world had only worn black and white clothing. Tan decided to change the world’s view on overall fashion and started encouraging people to incorporate bold prints and pops of color. More recently, he has decided to take everyday items like yellow measuring tape, and use them as belts over athleisure. Once he conquered the fashion world, he decided it was time to conquer hearts. At first it was an American cowboy by the name of Rob France Illustration. Rob was just fine, but that wasn’t enough for Tan, oh, no. He knew he had to prove his unconditional love, support, unsolicited advice, and endless kindness in the form of friendship. His target was an unsuspecting, handsome-but-doesn’t-know-it insecure boy, to whom he’d prove he too was worthy of love. That boy was me, and I am forever grateful. These images are a collection of Tan’s most flattering moments, a true reflection of his beauty but mostly his natural lips.
