Mothers and daughters tend to share many things. Facial features. Mannerisms. Bad style? Yes, that too. But WeTV is trying to change that with a new makeover show. “You’re Wearing That?” features mothers and daughters who make over each other for a special event. These women get help from personal stylist and host Luciene Salomone, who uses her years and expertise in the fashion industry to steer these women in the right style direction. Luciene will inspire both daughter and mother to re-style the other’s wardrobe, and in the process, each woman will gain confidence in her look. Because, as Luciene says, “The more you put effort into the way you dress, the better you get at it.” Keep reading »
Breaking news: something disappointing is getting even more disappointing. We’ve always been unimpressed with Jessica Simpson‘s show, “The Price of Beauty,” in which she and her best friends, Ken Paves and Cacee Cobb, travel around the world to discover what “beauty” means in other cultures.
But scratch that idea. Now it could become a makeover show. Keep reading »

“My whole thing is I’m busy, I’m a single mom, I’m working. I’m not an actress. The truth of the matter is, you know, with the exception of my mother, most people who know me know I don’t look great in makeup. When I was younger I was into it. You know, people have strong connotations of what women on television should say and what they should wear and how they should look. And I’m just not into it. The Bravo shot of me on the couch? It looks like I had sex with Heather Locklear and five margaritas.”

The yuppification of the yuppified has begun! It seems it wasn’t enough for Starbucks to infiltrate every neighborhood in America in the ’90s with its mass market gentrified style, but now they’re revamping that. In an attempt to make the brand feel more “local,” the company has been conducting makeovers on a few branches to feel out different styles. Pictured above is a Seattle store that’s been outfitted with regal red upholstery and dark wood furniture to give the place a manor-like quality. Another design goes for a crunchier, Pottery Barn aesthetic with earth tones and contemporary art.
While the Starbucks goal may be to convert coffee to café to lure in more customers, another aspect involves becoming a more sustainable empire. (Although, wouldn’t such a big undertaking require a huge amount of resources?) We’re not sure how this would change our feelings towards our morning cuppa just yet. You?

Hey, Life & Style? While I am usually a fan of makeunders, I really liked the “Jersey Shore” cast exactly as they were. Why did you have to “class” them up with those fancy dresses and stupid man vests? How could you deflate Snooki’s pouf? That’s just … wrong. [Just Jared]
