Season 3 Episode 4
Most students gain the "freshman 15," but for 21-year-old Kristen LaPere, it was more like the "freshman 50!" After being shocked by what she saw on a home video, Kristen set out to lose the weight and has since dropped 40 pounds. Kristen is proud of her new size 2 physique, but at times, she still feels like she's living in a fat suit and continues to hide behind baggy and boring clothes. Now that she's newly engaged and about to graduate college, Kristen is ready for a more professional and polished look to show off her fabulous figure. Inspired by Keira Knightley's fearless fashion sense, Kristen hopes Jay and his team can give her an edgy and glamorous new look that will help her overcome her insecurities and boost her self confidence.
