Carson Kressley's Makeunders
After she's learned to embrace her natural beauty, Dawn's new look is revealed. Her bleached extensions were left on the salon floor, and her real hair is cut in a flattering, layered bob. Her makeup and wardrobe are also more age-appropriate. A purple Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress shows off her figure without revealing extreme cleavage. "I feel beautiful," she says. "I feel classy."
Carson says Dawn's new look truly reflects the woman beneath all the beauty products. "When I first met her, I was like: 'Oh my God, stripper without a pole. What am I going to do?'" he says. "Then, I got to know her. She is the most wonderful mother, the kindest-hearted person. ... I think so many women who fall into these beauty addictions of overdoing the hair, overdoing the makeup are trying to layer it on. They're kind of hiding."
