There's this moment. It's in the opening. You know, the titles. The titles of What Not To Wear.
What Not To Wear is one of my favourite shows. It's a show where people nominate fashion-challenged friends for a $5,000 makeover in New York City. They also get their hair (and makeup, if applicable) done by two very talented and expensive experts. Generally, it's great. The hosts are Stacey London, a black-haired skinny urban princess, and Clinton Kelly, a tall blonde drink of water who dresses like my fantasy boyfriends. They work well together, and with some tough love, the guests always feel better about themselves.
The show is on Friday nights, but I was pleased to find that it's in syndication every day at 1pm on TLC. I watch most days, because my 16 months without a TV made me miss a lot of episodes and it's a good chance to catch up.
In the titles, there's a moment where Clinton ushers a frumpy redhead through a door, and she emerges in a fantastic outfit, looking amazed and happy. Directly after she emerges, Clinton quickly looks off to the left, supposedly at Stacy, crinkling his baby blues and opening his mouth in an explosive laugh. Oh! He's so happy that the redhead looks so good!
It's only a split second, but it makes me so happy. I love to see it, and most times, it makes me laugh too. Watch for it.
