Beauty & Fashion TV Shows

About Beauty & Fashion

There's no shortage of beautiful and fashionable people on TV, but within the Beauty & Fashion genre, the entire focus of the programming is on the illustration of how to look fabulous. Segments presenting beauty and fashion tips have long been a staple of talk shows and morning news programs, but as the growth of cable TV allowed for the fragmentation and expansion of niche genres, beauty and fashion began to be the focus of a growing number of full-blown series.

The growing popularity of reality TV also affected the genre, too. Makeover shows, in which participants are treated to a reboot of their clothing, hair and/or makeup styles with the guidance of fashion professionals, combined old-school fashion how-to content with the human-interest drama of the reality genre.

Other programs leave the beauty entirely to the professionals, albeit with a reality-competition twist. The "Next Top Model" series, for example, follows the trials and adventures of beautiful young people as they compete for modeling contracts.

And, of course, there is still the ancestor of all beauty and fashion TV, the beauty pageant. The Miss America pageant got its start in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in 1921, but it didn't really become a nation-wide institution until it began airing on television in 1954; it has aired annually since then, moving around among the big three broadcast networks, as well as CMT and TLC between 2006 and 2011.
