Plot Synopsis

In LOVE, LUST OR RUN, women with major fashion mishaps transform their over-the-top looks by coming to Stacy London, who asks people on the street to rate each woman's style -- either "Love" "Lust" or "Run" -- before and after her make-under. In each half-hour episode, Stacy coaches one woman on her fashion choices and under Stacy's tutelage she discovers what impact her choices are actually making in her life. At the beginning of each episode, viewers are given a glimpse at how defensive a woman dedicated to outrageous fashion can become when Stacy reveals how strangers on the street rate her style: either "Love" "Lust" or "Run." Next, the woman strips off her hair extensions, wild clothes, and garish makeup in order to start with a blank slate. Stacy then guides her through a transformative make-under, which dramatically changes her look and allows her to channel what she really wants from the outside world. At the end of each episode, Stacy again takes to the streets to ask strangers to rate the woman's transformed style as "Love" "Lust" or "Run." Stacy's transformations include: Tanika, who tries to cover up her self-esteem issues by flaunting her body in mesh tops and thigh-high boots; Deanna, a NYC girl who has fallen in love with the Jersey look; Serena, a devoted mother of three, whose only creative outlet comes when she hits her closet; Ellie, a young dancer from Pennsylvania, who wears bright green hair, five-inch platform boots and spikes galore; and many more women who need a jaw-dropping transformation. On Friday, June 12, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, TLC premiered the second season of LOVE, LUST OR RUN, immediately following a six-hour marathon (3-9pm) of encore episodes from Season 1. The Season 2 opener follows Lori, an accomplished teacher with dreams of becoming a principal -- except her outlandish style is not only getting in the way of her dreams, but it's sending the wrong message to her impressionable 12-year-old daughter. LOVE, LUST OR RUN returned with new episodes on Friday, January 1, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT on TLC. The first episode of the new year follows Stacy as she helps Joelle, a 27-year-old gymnastics teacher, whose main goal is to be a good role model for her students, but her "barely there" style is sending the wrong message. Other highlights of the new episodes include: Geraldine, a fifty-plus firecracker, who with three degrees and a job at an Ivy League university still dresses like a teenager; and Liz, a recovering addict who has finally turned her life around but can't shed the party-girl style of her former days of addiction.
On Friday, March 25, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, TLC premiered the season finale of LOVE, LUST OR RUN. In the season ender, "Jackie; Liz," Stacy transforms the looks of two more women.
