    What does everyone think about TLC's makeover show "What Not to Wear"? Personally, I love it. They take complete fashion victims and make them look amazing. You can never predict how gorgeous the people become by the end. Tonight's episode was really good. The poor lady featured was totally lost in grannie and granola hippy fashions and they really turned her into a sophisticated siren.

    I know I'm jumping ahead of myself but this topic also begs the question US or British version? Personally, I have never seen the British version since I don't have BBC America, but it is the original so...

    really? I quite like it, though I've never seen the British version so I have nothing to compare it to.

    I love that show! lol! I'm glad Clinton took the place of the old guy I couldn't stand him I mean he looked/dressed like someone off the street and was telling people they looked bad.. Sometimes Stacey gets on my nerves :doh: I've seen the "orignal" what not to wear on BBC and it's good 2 ladies and one is kinda short and a little heavy and then the other is tall and skinny.. But sometimes they wear weird clothes :blink:

    I watch it from time to time. They usually do a pretty good job making people over. I've seen the British ladies too and they drive me absolutely BATTY! I hate them/it. The American hosts are cool though.

    I LOVE what not to wear. I actually think it's better than the british version and not just because it's a more polished show. You can really see in some of the show how fashion and dressing better completely transforms peoples lives and their attitudes which I think it amazing.

    The commercial for it gets on my nerves, so I can't watch it.

    :clap: definitely. I find it a bit educational also. I mean, if you have any doubts about how to wear something you saw on the catwalk or on the magazines, you can turn to their highly professional non-personal advice.

    I've never seen the show, but the very idea of it offends me. The fact that these people are "volunteered" for the show by their "friends" seems unnecessarily cruel. Also, I embrace the general idea of "certain shapes and colors look best on certain figures and complexions," but I could never have somebody going through my closet, then dragging me out shopping. Possibly because I suspect those harpies would try to throw away damn near everything I own, then kit me out in all sorts of horrid prep-wear that I'd then have to throw away in turn.

    I've seen some of the before-and-afters and read synopsis of the show before, and I think they are awfully hard on personal style and tend to turn peas out of a pod, when all is said and done.

    The British version - a pair of horsie psychopathically-self-confident upper-class harpies prey on insecure women.

    I wonder how many people they approach drop their "friends" completely when they hear they've been volunteered... :innocent:

    I understand your point michelle however I think some people who work in a professional setting don't realize how much their personal appearance comes into play and that it can be holding them back careerwise. Should that be the way it is? no, but it is that way. Also I think that for the most part clinton and stacey take into account people's personal style. It's not uber prep.
