  • Will Russell
    Will Russell
    Episode 2
    Will is a 25-year-old from Alabama who needs to drop his hillbilly fashion tendencies for a sharper, more professional look, especially to be able to cut it in his new job. At 6' 3" and 180 pounds, Will is tall and lean; however, his clothes are certainly not. Stacy and Clinton have to convince Will that his extra-large polo shirts and oversized pants are not the way for the new guy at the office to look. Will also has a sock problem: all his socks are white and athletic — and he's wearing them with dark leather shoes! In an interesting first for the show, Nick and Carmindy think Will is already well groomed, so instead they introduce him to an etiquette instructor, who teaches him the subtleties of the proper business handshake, the confident walk and the memorable introduction.moreless
  • The Worst Dressed Couple in America
    After the success of their couples episode, TLC decided to hold an online contest, asking viewers to submit tapes and photos of couples they think could desperately use a makeover. Clinton and Stacy narrowed the field down to three deserving couples, then invited them all to New York to compete for the spending spree. Their choices were: Tammie & Kal Hudson, a pair of biker enthusiasts who looked like they stole their clothes from Daisy Duke and Spike from "Angel"; Ann & Chris Boyes, a team of store owners that claimed their unique punk rocker look actually brought in customers; and Ben Kronberg & Anna Newell, two NYC artists whose eccentric attire looked straight out of "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." Stacy & Clinton decided to test each couple by looking at the secret footage of each couple, then having them critique each other's looks, conducting several "mirror tests," then finally sending each couple on a mini spending spree to buy outfits for a dinner party the team was hosting. After careful deliberation, the team came to their decisions: while Ben & Anna adapted to the new rules easily, that seemed like that was actually a liability, and that they really didn't need that much help to change their style; Ann & Chris went to the other extreme, and seemed determined to fight against every change to keep their look, so Stacy and Clinton chose Tammie & Kal, because not only did they want to change, but they seemed to need it the most after several personal setbacks.moreless

    Ed is a former teacher now working as an insurance agent, but his look is anything but office professional. Ed's wife remarks that his wild colorful outfits cause people to think Ed is a Vegas lounge singer; his closet looks like he mugged Austin Powers and forgot the last 20 years. He also makes up original names for colors, preferring "bubblegum blush" over pink, and "toasted mango" instead of orange. The team may be at their wit's end with the wildest candidate yet.moreless

Stacy and Clinton help her come out of her shell a little more and find outfits for work and off hours that are flattering and practical.

The real question is, how BAD do you have to dress for a series to offer you ten times their normal budget to dress better? Or are clothes in France ten times more expensive? Lisa proves she deserves the high priced change. A self proclaimed diva, Lisa sports a flaming red Kramer-style afro and dresses in a funky style her friends and co-workers consider more shabby than shabby chic.
