After 15 years of adding polish and panache to thousands of women around the world, the original hosts of the UK version of "What Not to Wear” - Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine - are jumping the pond to help style-challenged Americans get a fabulous makeover. Making Over America with Trinny and Susannah (on TLC) follows them across the country as they help women go from frumpy to fabulous and realize their true potential.
Each hour-long episode begins with a name, an address and a cry for fashion help, and the race is on as the duo have just four days to completely transform the life of their fashion victim. Before they begin to change even her shoes, however, they must walk in them by spending a day with each woman's family and a day at her job, in order to fully understand the life of the individual they are trying to help. Instead of diets or designer clothes, Trinny and Susannah teach women to embrace their shapes and not focus on size by showing off what is lovable and hiding the rest. And forget Fifth Avenue: by exploring local stores, hair salons and beauty parlors, they show that style can be found right outside your door.
Complete with closet overhauls, shopping challenges and getting stripped down to their knickers, these fashion “femme fatales” use their arsenal of no-holds barred opinions, tips and tricks, and a healthy dose of tough love to help these women find their true selves.
Making Over America with Trinny and Susannah premieres Friday, August 21 at 10 pm (NYC time & Cali time) on TLC.
