Linda and Clark Before
Joanne nominated her sister Linda and her brother-in-law Clark for a makeover because their looks aren't just outdated—they're from another century!
Nine years ago, Clark discovered a love for a peculiar fashion item: the kilt. Now, he wears one every day—even to class, where he works as a law professor. "He has a summer kilt, a plaid kilt, a camo kilt," Joanne says. "He even has a sport kilt."
Most days, Linda can be found wearing mom jeans, a baggy flannel shirt and Birkenstock sandals with socks. Like her wardrobe, her hair is in much need of an update. "She told me the last time she cut her hair was 1985," Joanne says.

Clark says he hasn't worn pants in nine years, but today, he's looking dapper in a perfectly tailored suit. However, there is one reason Clark might return to his 17 kilts at home. "I tell you, this is the honest truth," he says. "Kilts are chick magnets like nothing I've ever seen before!"
Linda's makeover wasn't just about a new look but about accepting herself. While Ken worked his magic on Linda's hair, he says she couldn't look in the mirror. "The hardest thing for Linda to do was look at herself," he says.
Now, Linda says she feels glamorous. "And I'm also glad not to be wearing the pants in the family!" she says.
Becky and Darren Before
Becky has been married for 20 years to her Tom Selleck look-alike husband, Darren. But in his baseball cap, T-shirt and holey jeans, Becky thinks he's starting to look like a different celebrity. "Darren also wears overalls, and I'm starting to think he is resembling Mario from Mario Brothers," she says.
As for Becky, her daily nurse uniform is always the same: scrubs. When it's time to leave the house and run errands, Becky sees no reason to change out of her house slippers. "I wear them everywhere," she says.

No more Mario! Darren's makeover starts with a freshly shaved face. "I know you were thinking Selleck, but I wanted to go a little bit more Jon Hamm," Carson says. "A little bit more of this era."
To dress Darren up without buttoning him up, Carson chose a tobacco-colored cashmere sport coat and a slimming turtleneck. "You don't have to put on a shirt and a tie and go through all that trouble," he says. "You can pop on this black turtleneck."
For Becky, Carson chose a new take on the sexy leopard dress with a slate blue print. A belt is added to accentuate her waist, and a leather jacket gives the look a touch of cool. Carson opted for black opaque hose and black boots to create one long, lean line. "She's petite," Carson says. "It gives her a little extra length."
