I watched the first episode on Lifetime's website and I must say that this is a very nice show and a welcome departure from the Extreme Makeover shows and their ilk. Rather than take a woman who is unhappy with herself and render her unrecognizable, host Carson Kressley provides pep talks and tips to merely flatter the woman's look rather than change it; the most dramatic change to the woman's look was a haircut and some highlights. The show also features interesting facts and statistics about women and body image in America at the bottom of the screen throughout the show. While it would be nice to not be so reliant on the male gaze - one of the show's features is having the woman's picture posted on the side of a building, and then Carson and the woman asking (often male) passers-by whether or not she looks good naked - it is a small criticism, and the woman seemed more confident in her appearance even without the aid of onlookers. All in all a nice show, one that is fun to watch and makes you feel good.
