Funny and true.. Two fashion journalists help a woman to modernize her style and escape her frumpy wardrobe. A lot of people have written about this show seeing as it has received a lot of press but i would like to clear a few things up, because i feel that a few aspects of the show have been misrepresented...
It's broadcast in England and the rest of Europe, via the BBC. It is dependent on license money and therefore is not allowed to show commercials whatsoever. So if this program really was a commercial they wouldn't have allowed it. The clothes they buy come from a wide variety of shops, from the cheap to not so cheap, but always within budget for most people if they are willing to save some money for quality clothes. Secondly, i have yet to see an episode where they are really out of line. Yes they are very brutal about the clothes. On the other hand they never advise to lose weight or call a plastic surgeon and in this current fitness and diet crazed society which states that every woman above size 14 should lose weight, that can only be seen as a breath of fresh air. Plus, the 'before' clothes are often either hideous or totally unsuitable. Sometimes to the point that i start to think that this part of the show is scripted. This because some clothes were last seen on the high street in the 1980's or look as if they were bought in a hazy and rather drunken moment. They also look at the taste of the woman they are giving advice to and try to tailor their advice to that taste. They probably know that otherwise the new style would make them feel uncomfortable and
uncomfortable is hardly chic.
Definitely recommended as a good watch for people passionate about clothes.
