Look Great at Every Age Makeovers
Rita's passion for fashion began at an early age. "My mom sewed everything for us when we were growing up, so we would go down to the fabric store, we'd pick out the material, the patterns," she says. "She taught me about quality and cost and fabrics and textures and things that were comfortable."

Fashion can be intimidating, so Rita's brought along her style squad to help women look their best at every age. "My first tip is be true to your own personal sense of style," she says. "You know what feels good on you. You know what looks good on you."
Rita also has another weight loss tip for Cindy. "Donate those clothes, sell them or give them away," she says. "You'll feel a lot lighter without even having to diet."
Cindy says she feels like she's 28 years old again. "I feel like a new woman," she says.

Since she stopped dying her hair, Angela says her whole look has changed. "I've given up the short skirts, the boots, the dresses," she says. "I just don't feel good about myself."
Also complicating matters is a closet full of clothes that have never been worn. "I think my biggest problem is I have a lot of clothes," she says. "I just don't know how to put them together."
How Jesse and Joe helped Rita overcome her fear of color
Jesse and Joe went through Angela's closet and decided what needed to stay—and what needed to go. "All of the clothes that she's wearing here she actually had in her closet," Rita says. "They had never been worn, but she didn't know how to put them together."

Hair stylist Oscar Blandi helped prove that blondes really do have more fun. Because gray can be hard to hide, Oscar recommends Angela touch up her color every 45 days. "She has the most beautiful eyes and skin, and now she's a hot blonde," Rita says.
Angela loves her new style. "I'm not going back," she says.
When she's not channeling her teen years, Tamara says you can find her in cargo pants. "My husband absolutely abhors these, but I like them," she says. "I've got a cargo pant for every day of the week."
"Cargo's gotta go," Rita says.
Tamara's look is artistic, yet comfortable. "We put her into some stretch jeans that fit her amazing. Look, she's in great shape," Rita says. "We still have this artistic kind of look to her."

Laurali's daughter Konyia says her mother used to love fashion. Now, you can only find her wearing sweats with her hair in a bun. "My mother is an incredibly hard worker," Konyia says. "She always gives, gives, gives—never ever, ever expecting to receive anything in return."
Now, Laurali can take her look anywhere. "We gave her a white shirt that she can roll up the sleeves. She has her jacket if she is going out to meet the customers," Rita says. "Instead of the tennis shoes, we got her ballet slippers so that she can still be in her flats and work and do her job."
Laurali wasn't even afraid to cut her hair. "These two days have been beautiful for me," she says.
Konyia says her mother looks gorgeous. "Years have been released, lifted," she says. "She looks alive. This is the mom that I grew up knowing that I like to emulate, and she's back."
