Before and after makeovers have always fascinated me. Perversely, I often like the "befores" better, especially when it comes to senior makeovers. The poor "befores" get accused of every fashion faux pas in the book - looking frumpy or matronly, having a hairstyle that's aging, or even - horror of horrors - not being age-appropriate. Yikes! I always want to say, "Hey, you look fine, lady! Wipe that disgruntled look off your face!" But of course, the "afters" always look so stylish and slick, and they always look so happy - ya gotta love it!
Here I am re-creating a before and after makeover. (I tried to capture the spirit of the clothes even though I didn't have the exact clothes.)
And here's the original photo. So which one do you like better - before or after?
