John and Kate were recent college grads who were ready to take that giant leap into adulthood and a professional lifestyle—starting with their closets. The young couple came on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2010 to receive a makeover by the ultimate fashion expert: Carson Kressley.

Carson replaced John's tattered shirts, pants and shoes—along with his shaggy hairstyle—with a look that was much more clean-cut. John's girlfriend, Kate—who had also fallen victim to wearing nothing but comfortable, around-the-house outfits—was beaming when she revealed Carson's makeover, complete with red high-heeled pumps.
