>> you had a real emotional impact on women as well? my girlfriend, we watch that show, we talk about what stacy london said.
>> i like to think of the show as a trojan horse . you thought you were getting a makeover show about nice clothes or a jacket or whatever. it has and i emotional impact. there are few shows entertaining and emotional and a little therapy in there, too.

>> exactly. let's talk about trends then and now. some have stayed. some should go forever.
>> some stay, some go, some come back.

>> one of the most important examples is the difference in a decade. this used to be the style that everybody wore. do you remember this? the boot type jean? everybody wore this. now regardless of body type , most people go for the straight or the skinny.
>> it's funny, we used to say, wear the bought cut in 2003 . right.
>> not everybody can wear a skinny?
>> anybody can wear a skinny as long as you take body shape into account and balance it correctly.
>> we are looking at the 2003 version, jennifer lopez wearing the skinny as well, showing us we all can wear them, platform shoes in 2003 . huge.
>> we were always saying, don't do this. it's like britney spears in that big chunky boot. we saw a lot of this in 2003 . this was out in 2003 . people were wearing it, we were saying do a pointy toe.
>> kelly clarkson on the red carpet platform i believe.
>> then this shoe came in. everybody was wearing this in the mid- 2000 . now we see a return back to the single stiletto platform, it wins in the end.
>> very elegant.
>> we saw eva longoria looking gorgeous.
>> backpacks, so 2003 . they're back.
>> yeah, we used to throw away a backpack. you are a grown woman, don't wear a kid's backpack, then you would see them get lid of it, get a nice little purse, handbag, whatever.
>> we saw great backpacks.
>> that's right. channel did backpacks for the spring season, kind of amazing.
