Quite a number of reality shows have been big hits owing to the people they have helped. Among them are the fashion makeover shows that have seen many women, in particular, transform from being ordinary-looking and fashionless to beautiful and glowing individuals with a new fashion sense.
It’s a reality that many women, whether single or married, are carefree about how they choose and wear clothes for every day use. They can’t be blamed, though, because not all are aware of the right ways to dress up that would make them look appealing to other people. For many, whatever they love and makes them feel comfortable is already right in their own eyes.
Thankfully, the internet is here to offer valuable information to people searching for practical tips on how to look good and dress up right. Beyond helping the so-called fashion victims, fashion-related websites also provide blogging jobs to experienced and aspiring fashion writers.
Other than the internet, though, fashion reality shows are doing a great job as well. They not only provide tips but sometimes, they also give cash in exchange for the old clothes of their chosen clients.
Here are some the successful fashion makeover shows on TV.
What Not To Wear
What Not To Wear helps fashion victims across the U.S. improve their fashion style and lets them shop for new clothes using a $5,000 credit card. Hosted by Stacey London and Clinton Kelly, the participant is usually nominated by family and friends and is required to fly to New York to meet the style gurus.
Apart from their wardrobe, the participant also benefits from a hair makeover and is taught how to apply makeup fit for her personality.
How Do I Look?
This reality program called “How Do I Look?” has a different twist because participants are given fashion tips by two of their closest friends and a style expert. Three makeover plans are provided which the participant must choose her preference at the end of the show.
Hosted by celebrity stylist Jeannie Mai, the show also offers prizes to contestants willing to change their wardrobe. The prize could be a gift certificate for a new wardrobe worth $1,000 or sometimes, it could be a year’s supply of products depending on the contestant’s needs.
Aired on E! since 2010, Fashion Police discussed the do’s and don’ts of celebrity fashion. Originally hosted by the late Joan Rivers, Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic, the show will return on air this August with new hosts Kathy Friffin, Brad Goreski and Melissa Rivers, daughter of Joan Rivers. When the new season airs on August 31, the show will have a new format.
