Help Out Friends, Family With Extreme Makeover Nomination



We believe this image speaks for itself. No caption necessary.

You know you've seen her -- the pretty girl with the goofy outfits, or, conversely, the not-so-pretty girl whose fashion gaffes make her situation worse. She might even be your mom or your sister. Well, if you're of a mind to help out either of these unfortunate fellow beings, now's the time.

Through the second week of December, TLC will be casting in Memphis for its hit makeover show, What Not to Wear. The show's casting directors are looking for the craziest dressers they can find, or, in their own words, "an EXTREME fashion disaster." The plan is to whisk a group of fashionably challenged women to New York for a serious intervention and the chance at a $5,000 shopping spree for a new (and blessedly improved) wardrobe.

TLC is looking for ladies between 25 and 45. They must have fun, outgoing personalities and live within an hour of Memphis. To nominate someone, send four pictures of the offender wearing her worst and the following information to mgriffin@bbcnyproduction.com: name of nominee, age, size, height, marital status, occupation, home location, personality description, how her personal story relates to her disastrous wardrobe, and your name and contact information.
