First Look: Tim Gunn Gives ‘The Biggest Loser’s Erin Willet a Makeover (PHOTO)
Erin Willett is ready to show some skin!
On the February 8 makeover episode of NBC’s The Biggest Loser, the contestant rocks a Topshop pantsuit.
“I was in shock! I felt like this was the first time in my life that I was truly starting to love the reflection staring back at me, and it was because of my hard work that it was all coming together,” says the singer, who’s lost 50 pounds since starting the season at 238 (left).
Style guru Tim Gunn (above left) also loves the look. “The jumpsuit provides a clean, uninterrupted silhouette that echoes her great shape,” he explains. “We weren’t expecting that level of sexy allurement.” He adds, “TThe shoulder treatment makes Erin’s shoulder appear wider than her hips (every woman benefits from this illusion), and the deep v-neckline leads our eyes up to Erin’s gorgeous face.”
After trying on a few outfits, even Willet agreed the pantsuit was the perfect choice. “I had a jumpsuit that was similar to this one when I was at my heaviest, but it’s incredible what pride in yourself can do to an outfit. I’ve always said ‘Confidence is the best accessory’ and it’s incredible to actually start to understand and live that statement now!”
