Clinton Kelly was the host of “What Not To Wear” for nine seasons, including in 2008, when he and his co-host Stacy London made over "I Love You So Much" co-host Addie Broyles.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of her appearance on the show, Addie and Omar called up Clinton, who is now a daily TV presence on "The Chew," to find out how fashion advice has changed in the decade since and what he remembers about how being on the show changed Addie, who was then a copy editor at the Statesman.
If you're hoping to make over your own closet, you'd call a local fashion stylist to help. Austinite Laurel Kinney was a social worker before becoming a stylist and she uses her understanding of the human condition to help her clients, many of whom are going through some kind of major life change. She chatted with Addie and Tolly about where to find reliable fashion advice in the digital era and why our outer appearances affect our inner selves.
Ahead of the upcoming Taste of Black Austin event, Greater Austin Black Chamber president and CEO Tam Hawkins talked with Addie about why Austin needs an event to showcase the legacy of local African American food businesses and celebrate the entrepreneurs who are carrying it on.
In this week’s Webb Report, Eric Webb tells us about what happened when singer Lana Del Rey took time from her touring to play soccer with some Austin kids this week.
And, as with every episode, we conclude with A Toast, a set of recommendations of things we feel you should be checking out right now. Laurel Kinney recommended a podcast from Nora McInerny called "Terrible, Thanks for Asking" that explores the everyday grief and sadness we carry. Tolly talked about the sensual 1928 D. H. Lawrence novel, "Lady Chatterley's Lover," which was provocative in its day and entertaining to read now. Addie explained why any trip east of Austin along U.S. 290 requires a stop at the Texas Quilt Museum in La Grange, a creative display of American folk traditions that is more art than craft.
