Style By Jury is a Canadian makeover show which was shown on the W Network since 2007.

Plot[edit]

Contestants are told that they are doing an audition for a makeover show, but are kept unaware that they have been pre-selected. In the auditioning room there is a jury behind a two-way mirror, and it is asked for honest first opinions about the contestant. After the interview, the jury's opinions will be shown to the contestant on a television set. Then, the host would tell them that they have been chosen to have a makeover.

The Makeover[edit]

The contestants visit a cosmetic dentist, a dermatologist, a beauty parlor, a makeup artist, have their existing clothing reviewed by a style expert and then go shopping for new clothing. Depending on their situation they will be given fitness tips, visit a therapist or receive various kinds of training and coaching. After a week the contestant will be rejudged by a different jury that will include someone close to him/her.
