If you've ever watched the American version of bitchy style show "What Not to Wear" and been surprised by the lack of both bitchiness and style, you might be ready for the show's original British hosts, Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine. New York Times writer Eric Wilson says Woodall and Constantine are "the Patsy and Edina of the makeover genre." Constantine says the ring Wilson is wearing is "gaaaaaay."

TLC was concerned the duo might be too "much" for American audiences, but they're giving them a new show anyway. It's called "Making Over America With Trinny and Susannah" and starts tomorrow on TLC, giving us something to look forward to if tonight's Project Runway disappoints us. —Elizabeth Licata
