I absolutely adore What Not to Wear! First of all, its everything that I WISH I could say to fashion no-no's walking down the street. Secondly, it teaches those frumpsters how to take their bad decision and transform them into a personal style that helps put a little beauty back in America.
Lets face it, America has a bad rep for being frumpy, obese, and rude. What Not to Wear is tackling the first two of those problems! By taking the frumpy out of people's wardrobes, and teaching them how to dress for their size (whatever it may be) they're making people look FABULOUS regardless of their weight!
As a fashion major, I must say that I actually have benefitted and learned quite a bit particularly about how things should FIT when you try them on. Some helpful tips: 1) accentuate your waist-its the narrowest part of you and it will make you appear thinner! 2) a blazer's shoulder seam should match with your natural shoulder or it's too big! 3) high heels make your legs appear longer, therefore making you appear thinner!
Watch it, and pay attention! Or they could come for you next!

TLC's Stacey London and Clinton Kelly co-host this show where friends and families nominate their loved ones to have a closet makeover. The victim is given a free $5,000 Bank of America check card IF they are willing to hand over all of their current clothing to Stacy and Clinton to critque and eventually throw away. Their fashion lessons, shopping help, new hair and new makeup helps in transforming a fashion stay to a new fashion guru that dresses appropriately for their age.
