As a celebrity stylist to the stars, Jules Sebastian was a natural choice for new makeover show with "an emotional twist" - 'MTV Style Me'.
However, Jules says never in her wildest imagination did she think she would end up hosting her own show, especially after giving birth to baby Hudson just five weeks prior to getting the call to audition.
"I've never done anything like this before so I'm nervous, but I’m super excited as well.
"When the opportunity came I was overwhelmed, I just didn’t know like, could I do this? Is it going to be good? Am I going to make an absolute fool of myself? But so far so good, I think."
On 'MTV Style Me', Jules raids the wardrobes of the fashion illiterati and helps them cultivate their own sense of personal style, while helping to boost their self-esteem. Jules says that 'MTV Style Me' is not about creating an unrealistic ideal for her young charges, but guiding them towards making fashion choices that fit their personality and lifestyle. The opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life is what appealed to her most about her role.
"For me that’s the best part of my job, it’s the moment when somebody sees themselves in the mirror and you know that they think that they look great, and that for me, that’s the moment. That’s the reason why I do this job, for those moments.
"With these guys that I was styling on the show, they're obviously between 16 and 25, so they're younger, and that's a really vital time of life, you know I remember being young and you're so impressionable and you're so influenced by whatever’s going on around you, especially nowadays, it’s changed so much since I was a teenager."
As a self-proclaimed teenage "dag", Jules is excited to help young people steer clear of the poor choices she made, and get them out of the manky trackie-dackies and into something with a bit more street appeal.
"I didn't know I was a dag at the time, I thought I was quite cool!
"I'm a tomboy from way back, I still am a bit of a tomboy, I like being comfortable. My thing is that I really try and work within a person's personality and lifestyle, I don’t want to take them so far out of their comfort zone that it’s totally not them anymore."
Amongst Jules’ celebrity clients are Australian singer Jessica Mauboy, our own songbird Brooke Fraser and Jules’ husband, 'The X Factor' judge and 'Australian Idol' winner Guy Sebastian.
While Guy hasn’t offered Jules any specific hints or tips on how to present herself on screen, she says he's influenced her in other ways.
"I think I’ve learned a lot from just watching him in general.
"On 'X Factor', that's him, that's who he is, he's just himself all the time and I think I’ve taken very much a piece of that pie and applied it to my show because, you know, I’m just normal, we’re just normal people and I just want people to know that and be comfortable.
"[Guy's] always been himself, he never tries to be anybody he's not, he doesn’t turn it on, turn it off, that’s who he is all the time, so if I can take anything from him, that would probably be it."
Guy evaded babysitting duties while Jules filmed 'MTV Style Me' as he was away in New York and London filming his new video and fulfilling his 'X Factor' commitments, but now he's back to full time dad-duty as Jules takes her turn in the limelight.
"He was pretty much away for the whole time, so he got out of babysitting duties, but today he's on babysitting. I’ve got to go do some filming today, he’s just put Hudson down for bed so he’s doing good, he’s doing really good."
On 'MTV Style Me', Jules emphasises her personal philosophy of sticking to the fashion rules. So what's her number one rule to keep you off the worst dressed list?
"Don't wear leggings as pants.
"Leggings are great, because they go with anything, they make short dresses ok to wear if you don't want to get your legs out, but short tops where your bum and everything is out and about? No, cover. Cover your bum."MTV Style Me starts Tuesday 14 August on MTV at 9.30pm
