Daisy Fuentes is a regular on the style pages, known for her personal flair and keen eye for hip fashions.
Daisy's assignment is to makeover a group of fashion-challenged moms who are tired of feeling dumpy and drab. The catch is that they cannot spend a fortune.
When it comes to fashion, Jessica, Lisa and Kristine say they don't have a clue. After having babies and shedding post-pregnancy pounds, these moms are longing for the hot celebrity looks that they see in all the magazines.
Daisy surprises them at their homes and they all set off in search of the hippest Hollywood looks.
Jessica traded her sweats for a pair of pants inspired by Dolce and Gabbana. Two t-shirts are doubled up for a more stylized look. The entire outfit is from Daisy's collection and costs only $89!
Lisa's new look is very va va voom—nothing like the baggy clothes she used to wear. Even Daisy is amazed by the makeover and exclaims, "Who knew she had all that under all that?"
The gorgeous little black dress from Daisy's collection is only $49.
Kristine's new look is inspired by Prada. The grand total for the dip-dyed skirt and adorable wrap sweater by Daisy: $68.
"Just because you don't have the budget" says Daisy, "doesn't mean you don't have the taste. If you know how you want to look, you know what's in style, you should be able to wear it and pull off that look and not look cheap. Just because it's inexpensive, doesn't mean it has to be cheap."
Comparing Daisy's collection and the designer outfits side by side, you can see that celebrity chic can be had at a fraction of the price.
Daisy says there's no reason to spend a lot of money on jeans. Her jeans shown here cost $44, versus $132 for the designer version.
The secret, says Daisy, is all in the attitude. If you have the $500 attitude, "people will not know what you paid for it."
For this high-end designer look, you'd have to shell out the big bucks—or you could get Daisy's design for pennies on the dollar. The beaded cami is 100% silk and costs only $29!
