What Not To Wear Season 2 - Episode 33: Belinda
Disasters should be handled by the professionals--fashion disasters included. Enter Stacy London and Clinton Kelly, style experts for the couture-challenged. The fashionable duo swoop in to rescue the frumpy and dumpy, the mismatched and the ill-flattered, for a chance at a life-changing fashion make-over. Nominated by friends and family, the contestants toss all of their previous ideas about style --and their entire wardrobe--out the window, and put their faith in Stacy and Clinton, master hairstylist Nick Arrojo, and glamorous make-up artist Carmindy. With the help of $5,000, ho-hum style evolves into city-chic and outdated looks become cutting-edge in the expert hands of the "What Not to Wear" team. Episode 33: Belinda was voted most photogenic in high school, but 30 years on her husband and 3 daughters think she needs to re-discover her inner beauty queen. She dresses as if she is always walking her dog, in overalls or tapered jeans and tennis shoes. She loves animal prints and wears T-shirts with lions and bees on them. The one thing she's kept since high school is her long blonde hair. In fact, she's never had it cut and it hangs way past her behind. The whole What Not To Wear team of Stacy and Clinton and Nick Arrojo and Carmindy are united in their determination to get Belinda to cut her hair - but despite nominating her for the show, her husband and daughters have second thoughts.

Anyone reading any WNTW review I do should know a few things:
1) I'm only doing these reviews to give the ep 5 stars; I will give EVERY ep 5 stars as a nod to the general greatness of WNTW. I admit it, I'm biased. (But really, if the knowledge, fun, and drama aren't enough for you, the brilliance and wit of Stacy and Clinton push every ep to a 5 anyway!)
2) While I don't have time for big writeups on each DVD, I will do a few sentences. Stacy recently picked this ep as one of her top 10 of all-time, and I agree, it's right up there. Belinda H. was a lot of fun (amusing things happen at both the ambush and shop day 2) and she wore her heart on her sleeve about her devotion to her family, which was endearing. The situation regarding whether she'd cut her long hair was fascinating and intense, before AND after. And the makeover took about 10 years off her, causing Stacy to become emotional and leading Clinton to say it probably was the best they'd done to that point. An early ep but still very watchable. Quintessential WNTW, and an ep that really exhibited the force this show would become.
3) ... However, I would be remiss if I didn't again mention the cost. After paying $19.95 each for the first five DVDs I bought, which is way too high, I was pleasantly surprised that this one suddenly listed for $10.36. Many others were similarly marked down at one point. But alas, they've all been jacked back up to $19.95. I am a big enough fan of the show, and have the resources, to buy them, although I'm not too flippin' thrilled with Amazon right now.Read more ›
