Trinny and Susannah are British fashion writers who secretly observe people (only women that I've seen so far) nominated for wardrobe help by their spouses, friends, co-workers, etc. After some well-intentioned remarks on how poor "Darcy" has fallen into a uniform rut, has lost her sense of her own femininity, etc, our hosts dive in to save the unfortunate soul by giving her advice on colors, styles, body types and so on along with 2000 pounds (US$2500?) with which to buy a substantial clothing infusion. Their "cruel to be kind" pointers do seem to be on target and their favorite tools are a 360 degree mirrored cabinet and hidden cameras.
Good-hearted and brutally honest, Trinny and Susannah seem truly invested in improving the lives of the fashion-challenged of the world. All of the nominees that I've seen were grateful for the help and seemed to have a positively increased sense of poise, self-esteem, and sexuality. Funny and very British, I enjoy this show and am interested to see if the American copycat of the same name coming out soon will be as good.
