The first episode of AOL On Style’s new web series “Decoding Style with Nina Garcia” is here, just in time for you to garner a little wardrobe inspiration on your lunch break.
In the five-minute video, the Marie Claire creative director meets Kate Salko, a mother of two who has recently lost weight but is still dressing like she did at her heaviest. Garcia, who clearly means business in her über-stylish office, and black leather-paneled dress, suggests that Salko find herself a celebrity style icon and think of her whenever she’s in a rut. Personally, we think that envisioning Salma Hayek when getting dressed would leave us feeling rather disappointed at our lack of Gucci dresses and, er, other such assets, but to each her own.
After nailing down the look, the requisite dye job and makeover ensue, and — ta-da! — a new woman emerges. If this sounds a lot like a certain television show to you, well, you’re not alone. But after watching this we certainly wouldn’t mind seeing the “Project Runway” judge go head-to-head with “What Not To Wear”‘s Stacy London in a wardrobe makeover face-off.
