Tim Gunn Maternity Makeover
Joey said he had butterflies in his stomach as he awaited the reveal of Melissa, his wife who is six months pregnant. Their interfaith romance put them at odds with both their families.
Melissa wanted a fashionable alternative to her maternity wardrobe. The Revolution team ditched her glasses and frumpy sweater in favor of a sleeveless purple dress. Joey & Michelle embraced and celebrated the fashion success.

Tim said the dress had a deeply saturated color, which draws attention away from her baby bump. He suggested avoiding loud colors or busy prints. Draped style won’t constrain the belly, and thicker heels mean no worries about taking a spill.
Tim also explained that the dress was knit, which makes it easy to get in and out of during pregnancy. He called the look elegant and sophisticated.

Angela said she feels like a girl. Tim explained that the pink print dress was appropriate for Valentine’s Day without being gaudy. He gave her an Empire Waist to highlight her shape.
The unusual print and “sophisticated neckline” completed this look, which Angela’s husband Chris called amazing.
