Queer Eye for the Straight Planned Community: An Honest-to-Goodness Lake Anne Celebrity Sighting (Updated)

Brace yourselves, Restonians: the next South Beach could be on the shores of Lake Anne. According to the Facebooks, Tan France of the Queer Eye teevee series was out at Lake Anne on Saturday, filming... something.

The mind boggles: Was Tan there to shake up the DRB color palette, replacing burnt orange and russet brown with some paisleys? Or do a makeover of Metal Bob? Maybe, but don't count on it. According to one Facebook commenter, Tan was there to film a different show -- on "how to market yourself on Facebook, or something like that."

True story: Your humble Restonian witnessed the filming firsthand, but being of a Certain Age and accompanying hipness quotient, we weren't sure whether Tan was a celebrity or just a particularly handsome Reston Association representative filming the latest Reston Today video. Given the natty earth-toned jacket Tan was sporting in the picture above, we honestly think that was a reasonable mistake, the end.

Update: Celebrity Deems Reston 'Purrrrty':
