EDITOR’s NOTE: TO ENTER THE CONTEST, please visit: www.facebook.com/macys

Macy’s is looking for eight people who need more than a new haircut or whiter teeth: The retailer is launching a Million Dollar Makeover, which will shower the “befores” with products, services, cash and experiences.

Describing it as a “makeover on steroids,” the Cincinnati-based retailer will seek nominations through its Facebook page, with finalists decided by Facebook voting. The winner will get a total reinvention from Clinton Kelly, Macy’s style expert and co-host of TLC’s “What Not to Wear.” Eight winners will get a total makeover, which will be filmed and posted to www.facebook.com/macys for open voting, two per week. Winning entries advance to the semifinals, with a $1 million ultimate makeover winner scheduled to be chosen in April.

“The winner will not only get some quality time with me to update their look, but will get a truly life-changing experience,” the fashion guru says in the chain’s release. “From fashion to finance to fitness, one lucky person will undergo a complete life transformation.”

The store says the effort is an attempt to boost its brand positioning as the store that helps people put it all together, “from their fashion to their homes to their lives,” Martine Reardon, EVP/ marketing, says in the release. “This will be the ultimate experience, taking Macy’s signature makeovers to the next level.”

  1. I am a woman who will be 65 in August. My wish is for a Macy’s makeover, to welcome my formal “senior” years.

  2. I have never wore any make up other than lipstick as I never learned how to apply it, now at 65 I would like to learn a few things.

  3. I am intering the million dollar make-over because I started a non-profit wellness business and clothes and make-up are not important to me I would like to dress for public speaking and taught how and when to wear make-up. I am not bought clothes in over ten years so I dont know what the style is. I would like some information on dressing coservatively and leave something for the imagination. I am in my fifties and would like to be shown how to come out the house looking like a movie star. Thank you Deborah faye brown phone 6304108246 p.o. box 421 bolingbrook illinois 60440.

  4. I would like to enter the million dollar make-over because I would like to give public demonstrations about wellness beverages. I have not bought any clothes in ten years becaue I purchas products and give free demonstrations. I would like to give more demonstrations but it takes grant money that I do not have.

  5. I am 63 years old and I would like to see a Macy store. Ihave only been in one and it was in New Jeresy. I need to show the ladies how famous the make up is and how the store looks. My experience that one time has lasted for over 21 years.

  6. Im 23 yrs old and a first time mom. I am going to be going to art school soon and i think i dress ok for a mom but not for an artist. I defanitly dont look perfestional and have no clue how to dress myself to make me look like i know what im doing. Im a huge fan of the show and would be thrilled to even be giving a chance to have this wonderful expirence.

  7. I Have been following this contest and reading Debra faye brown, I don’t no personally but admire her hope she wins.

  9. I like Bernice Roberts.It sounds to me that at her age and all she needs for her son that she’s a good woman who deserves a makeover.

  10. i need a makeover,this is my dream.im tired of being picked on please help me.

  13. I would love a makeover for my husband.he tells me that I don’t need one but I do I want to feel beautiful. Because I don’t feel beautiful.I’m 47 yrs old.I want my husband to say WOW. I want to look in the mirror and say its that me. Thank you evelyn rivera

  14. I am 82 years old and my clothes have aged with me. I’m depressed because with my husband’s and my meager income there isn’t much I can do to boost my moral. My face is unwrinkled, but my clothes are old fashioned and faded. I don’t know how many years I have left, I still have energy to live life. Please make me happy.

  15. I am a 26 young lady who just got out of an emotional draining relationship in which I lost self esteem along with my closet. I could go on and on but I just want to say I need this make-over so that I can get the “old Karly” back in the groove. This meaning a new job, my self-confidence, and a new wardrobe with the help of Mr.Clinton ; I believe this all could happen. Along with doing this I also aspire to start a foundation to help people become aware of the disease known as Fibromyalgia (my mothersuffers from this detilbating disease) With this, if I have a chance of winning I do plan on starting some kind of foundation to help those out there that are un-aware become more educated on the disease and what it’s all about. It would be in the best intrest of only good things, and I hope you see that only good can come from this wonderful idea of the make-over opportunity with Macy’s and all others that are invetted in this contest. Thanks so much for hearing me out. Sincerely yours, Karly Patricia Bowman.

  16. I believe that bernice roberts should win the makeover because it seems to me that she has been very dedicated to her son all these years and deserves this .
