Spring has sprung, so Clinton Kelly from “The Chew” decided to spring some color on Macy’s shoppers by offering them ambush makeovers!

Clinton’s first subject Denise works in a hospital and wears scrubs all day, and in her downtime she likes to stick to black. “I feel like it makes me look slimmer,” the Bronx, New York resident tells Clinton.

But that’s a myth, Clinton says, “Black is not always slimming. Fit is everything when it comes to black, because you could be wearing a garbage bag, and that’s not slimming.”

Clinton gave Denise a dramatic makeover, showing her how to use black as the basis for working color into her wardrobe. He paired on-trend black skinny jeans with a floral jacket featuring a black background, then matched a jewel-tone blue shirt to the blue in her jacket.

Denise also got a glam new haircut at Licari Cutler Salon at Domenico Vacca, and an update from celeb makeup artist Cynde Watson. “Makeup is really important when you’re trying to create a new look,” Cynde said, giving Denise a subtle smokey eye.
