The folks at Scout Productions who bring us Queer Eye For The Straight Guy are looking to cast the next Fab Five or maybe three, to star in Queer Eye For The Straight Girl. They are looking for gay style experts from 28 to 45 years old.
We now pause to applaud Scout Productions for recognizing that there is life beyond thirty something. Thank you.
According to The Cincinnati Enquirer the producers are looking for the following:
"The look expert -the all-in-one guide to building a great look for a woman"
"The locale expert -designs spaces around each straight girl's style and vision"
"The life expert -an expert in helping women live the life they've dreamed of living"
Look for a 2005 debut.

Bravo has made it official. Queer Eye for the Straight Girl, will spin off from Straight Guy and will be produced by the same people.There will be some changes. The show moves to the left coast and will feature three rather than five gay stylists. Their mission will be to improve the lives of Los Angeles women. According to Bravo President Jeff Gaspin, in an interview with Daily Variety, "It's something our female fans have been requesting since Queer Eye became a hit." Addressing concerns that there will be to many gay makeover artists on the air Gaspin said "Straight Girl goes on the air a year and a half after the original launched, so I think enough time will have passed." The three gay males for the series are still being cast. According to series creator David Collins Straight Girl will delve a little deeper, "Guys need the basics," he told Variety, "the 101 information, whereas women are much more discriminating." "They know the basics, they want options, ways to amp it up a little. However, the Queer Eye make-better philosophy will still be intact." Look for an early 2005 premier with an initial run of 13 episodes.
