“Makeover Train” is set to launch with a 10 episode season, releasing new installments each week. Utilizing recognizable talent from the television network, TLC’s on-air style experts will be taped riding along the Boston subway system looking for frumpy folk to makeover.
I’m hoping this is truly spontaneous, rather than the ridiculously falsified spontaneity that occurs whenever Stacy London from “What Not to Wear” pounces on someone from an angle where there is clearly a cameraman laying in wait. But we’ll just have to wait and see.
Along with “Makeover Train,” TLC is releasing a video fashion guide aimed at the clotheshorses or consumers of clotheshorse media who watch the network’s many style shows. The guide will be filled with new content featuring the hosts of TLC’s makeover shows like “What Not to Wear” and “10 Years Younger.”
Check out TLC on June 4 so someone with confirmed expertise can remind you that black is slimming and things that make you look fat are bad.
