I absolutely love it.


It doesn't even look like me.

So Christen has a new hairstyle and makeup look. Let's see what Marie Claire has in store for her fashion.

Christen, this is Zoe Glassner, she's Marie Claire's fashion editor.


Nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you, too.

Zoe oversees Marie Claire's impeccable sense of style.

So, Christen, you seem to have a very simple style so you showed up in like the best blank slate there is which is jeans and a T-shirt but I have a couple of ideas to sort of take this from ordinary to extraordinary.


So the first thing is, this little lady-like cardigan--

Oh, I like that--

It's kind of a blazer, kind of a knit, and it's gonna serve to cover up the T-shirt, sort of keeping the sort of casualness but taking this to a new place. The other thing that sort of works with this lady-like look are pearls, but instead of a single strand of really lady-like dainty pearls, they're coming in these sort of bad-ass colors, multiple strands, to make the look sort of new. It's not just a sweet, sweet lady look anymore, it's a little bit more rocker.

Ooh, wow.

Yeah. Totally cool--

That's really cool.

The other thing that sometimes we add to the pearls which is new are chains. So, this is like, you know, we're getting somewhere with this. I pulled these for you because they're like a lady-like shoe, the quintessential sort of T strap feeling with a little big toe but it has this really fierce stiletto, so you have this sort of rock and roll take on the new lady.

Yes. You are incredible.

No, I'd really like it. I think you look adorable. It's a very versatile and easy way to just take your look from 0 to 60.

I'm like in awe of you so, this is great.

Wow, you look fantastic.

Thank you. This is incredible. I cannot thank you enough. I would have never expected this.

Well, Kristy's a great find. She's right outside. You wanna show her the results?


So, Kristy, you excited to see Christen's new look?

Yeah, I can't wait.

Great, well she's right here.

Come on in.

Oh, my God.

Doesn't she look great?

You look so beautiful. I love your hair.

I love it.

Oh, wow.

I cannot thank you guys enough.

Are you ready for the wedding?

Oh, yeah.

This has been such an incredible day. I love my new hair color, I love my new hairstyle. Not only do I look that much better but I feel like it's something I can keep up. I love to have my hair and makeup done by Lisa because I rarely wear makeup and I felt like she brought out my natural features. Zoe is the best stylist. She just made it like pop. My fiance's gonna absolutely love my new look. I'm the luckiest bride in the world.

We hope you enjoyed Christen's surprise makeover. Remember, you can follow these tips from home for a makeover of your own. And who knows, maybe you'll be the next lucky girl to get a visit from Marie Claire's surprise stylist.
