After nearly a 30-degree drop from yesterday, New Yorkers and tourists alike are bundling up for what truly feels like the start of fall. Despite the chilly weather, fans showed up to the plaza eager to see a unique wedding edition of Ambush Makeover.
Executive editor at The Knot, Lauren Kay, brought in two of the most meaningful women at the wedding — mother-of-the-bride and mother-of-the-groom. Though the couple-to-be certainly deserves center stage during the special day, Kay and celebrity stylist Louis Licari readily welcomed these proud moms to make sure they feel just as marvelous.
This special segment is one you don’t want to miss — so tune in and read on below for the wedding-essentials that are perfect for the fall season!
