After her three-hour makeover, she came out with a new bob haircut and a nautical style dress, looking almost unrecognizable. Even her daughter was shocked to tears.
Louis said she wasn’t even the same woman, and made her hair look more modern with a haircut and soft side-swept bangs. He also dyed it a dark auburn color. Jill said she’s a fan of anything with pockets, so she put Christine in a Maggy London dress.
