Mamie before and after her makeover

15 of 19
Mamie recently celebrated her 61st birthday—but she doesn't dress like the stereotypical 61-year-old. "I love to wear my skirts short. I wear tight jeans. I wear push-up bras. The majority of the time, they look good on me," she says. "Is it too much? Do you think it's something that a lady over 60 should wear?"

Stacy says Mamie is a fiery lady—but she needs to tone down her wardrobe a little. "She felt very comfortable in her skin, so we didn't want to take that away from her completely," Stacy says.

To preserve Mamie's fire and sexiness, Stacy chooses to give her a "ladylike dress." Mamie's new look includes a Carmen Marc Valvo red dress and leopard velvet shawl by Ilana Wolf, both from Saks Fifth Avenue, and Stuart Weitzman gold strappy sandals, a gold rhinestone cuff and Nadri chandelier earrings from Nordstrom. "We're using lap pleats that make a V. We're also raising the visual center of gravity by creating a cummerbund that's higher than her natural waistline," Stacy says. "So when you look at her, she looks like she has longer legs. She's got this great-fitting silhouette."
