You're Wearing That?!?
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this makeover series centers on mothers and daughters helping each other get fashion makeovers. Although the show's focus is on outer beauty, it does highlight some very positive mother-daughter relationships. Expect some mild references to looking and/or feeling sexy, as well as images of women wearing see-through blouses, skin-revealing dresses, and other iffy attire. Some of the mothers send mixed messages about what's appropriate to wear. Salons and restaurants are prominently featured.
What's the story?
YOU’RE WEARING THAT?!? features nine mother-daughter pairs who each feel strongly about the other needing a fashion intervention. Stylist Luciene Salomone meets with the moms and daughters, who each get the chance to offer their candid opinions about the other’s wardrobe. After identifying their fashion faux pas and offering some style coaching, the moms and daughters buy clothes for each other; they also get hair and makeup updates. At the end of the makeover, both women reveal their new looks to friends and family.
Is it any good?
You're Wearing That?!?, which features some B-list celebrities like former American Idol contestant Kimberley Locke and 1980s TV star Charlene Tilton, is all about helping moms and daughters update their looks while also encouraging them to respect each other’s style choices. It also touches on some of the reasons that some women choose to dress poorly, including using oversized clothes to hide their self-esteem issues and using iffy attire to reclaim their youth.
Like most makeover shows, the primary focus here is on looking good on the outside. But the show's positive mother-daughter relationships make watching it a positive and heartwarming experience overall.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about makeovers. Parents: Would you like to see your kids get a fashion makeover? Why or why not? Kids: Do you like the way your parents dress? If you were to make over your parents, what would you change?
Shows like this focus on looking good on the outside. Is that as important as feeling good on the inside? Do these things go hand in hand?
