What would you say about your appearance prior to the makeover?

I was boring and frumpy. I didn’t know what to wear since I had put on weight, so I just tried to disguise my spreading waistline with loose baggy clothes.

What was the best part of the makeover?

I loved the actual process – it was like being a star for a day! Everyone fussed over you and treated you like you were really special. It was so much fun!

What was the worst part of the makeover?

The shoes! I don’t wear heels and Trinny put me in skyscrapers with straps. My feet still hurt if I think about it too much..

What was the best advice Trinny & Susannah gave you?

To see what I thought was a huge problem as a minor issue and to put the focus on enhancing the positives.

How has the makeover changed your life?

I am experimenting more with colour. I am trying more shaped, fitted clothes. I am more confident in how I wear them! Maybe I’m not an old frump after all!
