Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Based on the BBC series of the same name, the American cable TV offering What Not to Wear enabled fashion-challenged people to make themselves over on a budget of 25,000 dollars. These worthies were aided in their efforts by a team of experts, led by hair stylist Nick Arrojo and makeup artist Carmindy Bowyer. Celebrity stylists Wayne Scott Lukas and Stacy London served as hosts and heckled from the sidelines. Debuting March 8, 2003, the American version of What Not to Wear did not rely upon reruns from the British original, but instead on ten new episodes, specially produced for The Learning Channel. Unpopular among viewers, Lukas was replaced by Clinton Kelly for the show's second season.
