Jesse and I had such a blast sharing our style tips and tricks on the new Ricki Lake Show! Ricki herself was so much fun to work with and we all just fed off each other’s energy. What we love most about Ricki is that she’s so relatable and that we basically grew up together (same generation). We are excited to be a part of her team and know that the show will be a tremendous success because Ricki has truly “been there.”
Our makeover candidate, Krueger, worked on the set and was one of our favorite makeover recipients ever. She actually wore large men’s oversize t-shirts with baggy jeans and sandals every day. She had never tried dressing up, and never experienced what we call “Feelin’ It”: this is where your fashion planets align, your hair and make-up work, and you feel hot. Not only is Krueger a gorgeous girl, but she is also beautiful and generous on the inside. Go Krueger!!
The trends were especially fun because we used clothing that is completely accessible and wearable, and the models were real women.
To get the looks that we styled for the show, go to the Ricki Lake Show website. Thanks to everyone who watched it and of course to everyone we worked with – Ari Seth Cohen of Advanced Style, Martha McCully and the amazing team Ricki. –Joe
