Himself - Style Expert
Sam Saboura has made his mark as a top stylist and as television's original makeover authority. He believes that style should be approachable, unintimidating, and easy to understand-as much for the real person as for the high-profile celebrity.
Saboura admits to embarking on his quest for good style around the age of six, experimenting with makeovers on anyone who'd stand still long enough. He launched his professional career as the personal shopper at the famed Fred Segal, LA's most exclusive specialty store. For several years, he remained Hollywood's best-kept secret, dressing many of the world's most visible stars-including Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Aniston, and Brad Pitt-who came to rely on his extraordinary eye and impeccable sense of style.
In 2003, Saboura joined the cast of ABC's Extreme Makeover. As the breakout star and style host of this international hit series, he led an elite team of professionals who transformed the looks-and lives-of individuals throughout the country. With his warm personality and tough love approach to self-improvement, Saboura quickly established himself as one of television's leading style experts, endearing him to millions of fans worldwide.
Saboura frequently brings his distinctive approach and expansive knowledge of fashion to the red carpet during award-show season. His charismatic and intelligent fashion commentary has entertained and educated audiences during The Oscars, The Emmys, and The American Music Awards, as well as on E! News Daily and E!'s Red Carpet Boot Camp. He is also a regular style contributor for Good Morning America, The Tyra Banks Show, E! Entertainment, TV Guide, MSNBC, and CNN.
In addition, his practical style tips and expert advice regularly appear in national publications, including Us Weekly, People, InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Marie Claire, Redbook, First for Women, Life magazine, Woman's World, LA Confidential, TV Guide, the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Boston Globe, and The New York Times.
In 2005, Clarkson Potter, the lifestyle imprint of Random House, published his best-selling book, Sam Saboura's Real Style: Style Secrets for Real Women with Real Bodies. The companion workbook, My Real Style: A Makeover Journal, was released on July 11, 2006. Filled with wardrobe-building advice and information on how to shop like a pro, it shows readers how to create a personal portfolio of style and inspiration.
"I'm on a mission to help real people feel good about themselves when they get dressed every day, to show them that this whole "style thing" isn't so hard after all," says Saboura. "With a bit of information and a nudge in the right direction, anyone can unlock their own style potential and look fabulous."
Saboura is already at work on a new book, and is in the midst of creating and producing his own style show. He remains in high demand as a personal stylist for celebrities in the film, television, and music industries, and works extensively as a freelance wardrobe designer and consultant. He recently completed work on his fifth series for primetime network television and is the national spokesperson for MSN Shopping.
