Over at the Daily Mail, the male half of four couples were given the chance to dress their female partners, in an experiment of inter-partner makeovers.

The couples ages ranged from 25 to 66, and the results range from adorbs to painful.

The oldest couple, Carole Williams, 64, and Mike Williams, 66, were the most successful. Mike understood what his wife would like, was careful to consider her feelings, and in the end, Carole was happy with her new look.

But for the youngest, Beth Colmar, 25, and Christian Thompson, 31, the little experiment may have gone horribly awry. Beth, who usually dresses granny chic, was put in a short, tight microdress and sky-high heels by Christian. She said of her look: “I want to cry. I look like one of those women who trawl nightclubs picking up footballers…If Christian hopes this will change my dress-sense, he’s wrong. It has had the opposite effect — I can’t get back into my old clothes quick enough,”


But regardless, what do you think? Would you let your partner give you a makeover?
