Oh I disagree.. I mean I hated their styling -but- far from dressing people like their daughters, they took women to a whole new level of frumpy that was far beyond their years.
I never forget there was one woman who was in her late 40s, she was really tiny, slim, and liked wearing things like jeans with little diamante patterns and 'sexy' clothes. I mean she didn't look great but she sure as hell didn't look as BAD as when them two had finished 'making her look her age' ie grannyfied.
I remember that one! I thought the woman featured looked very pretty dressed and styled in her own clothes, but, as you say, she ended up looking frumpy and dowdy when T and S had finished with her.
Saying that, I liked the show usually. But I also liked House Doctor too
