The Laughing Stork

Best. Makeover. Ever.

I’m not usually a fan of “ambush” makeovers — Hey, you!  You look terrible!  Let us tone down your hideousness! — but this one on Kathie Lee and Hoda made me a little weepy, I’ve got to admit.  (And, no, I wasn’t drinking wine along with Kathie Lee and Hoda.  Yet.)  Check out this 77-year-old woman, who was visiting the TODAY show Plaza with her sweet husband of 59 years, when she finally gets a load of herself after a three-hour pampering session…

BEFORE:

AFTER (She’s the second makeover.  BE PATIENT, as my three-year-old always tells me while I grumble about a video not loading on the iPad):

“I look like a movie star!” she excitedly told Hoda. Meanwhile, her husband looked on with tears, as did Kathie Lee and everyone else.

Everyone together now: awwww.
