Lynn Martinez Before
According to Lynn Martinez, her first day on the job as a television reporter was nothing short of terrifying. She was young, insecure and horribly dressed. She was ready to take on the world and my very first television story.
When she showed up to work, her assignment editor barked out her marching orders and handed her a couple of press releases. Just as she turned to walk out the door, he called after Lynn and asked about her dressing. Everyone in the newsroom simultaneously burst into laughter. She adds that she was as broke as a spandex maker when grunge hit.
So to make due, Lynn Martinez would piece together outfits from free clothing she got from her old pageant and modeling days. The second day in her job, her News Director forwarded her first official complaint. The director claimed that during Lynn’s very first live-shot, she wasn’t wearing enough lipstick, her hair was too flat and her gauchos were hideous. Fortunately, the director thought Lynn had done a good job on the story.
The next few years, Lynn beat the streets of Amarillo, Texas, in search of her reporting style and fashion sense. The biggest lesson she learned at the beginning of her career was grace under fire. She had to be dressed to impress, but ready for almost anything.
As a result, Lynn Martinez started keeping a change of clothing in her car, along with a pair of all-purpose weather boots. She needed to be ready to walk, run, climb and endure any possible weather element. Lynn did her hair and make-up and it was utterly impossible to keep herself looking decent in all those mentioned situations.
Her hair was a safe-one-length-beyond-boring-brown-bob and she sprayed the bejesus out of it to keep it looking halfway presentable in the High Plains heat.
Her make up was thick base, bright red cheeks, frosty eyes, gobs of mascara and pink lips. As Lynn grew more seasoned, she graduated to a few anchor/reporting jobs, which granted her a two-day reprieve from being an alley cat. Lynn points out that no one ever helped or styled her.
She watched, learned and listened to the world around her. As the focus of my career changed, so did her wardrobe. Instead of chasing tornados or covering murder trials, she was hanging out at cool restaurants, nice boutiques, fabulous museums and local theaters, which eventually led to interviewing television stars and the occasional movie star in Hollywood.
As her paycheck grew, her buying power did too. She negotiated a clothing stipend/allowance, as time went by. Channel 7/WSVN polished her complete appearance. They secured a clothing sponsor to dress Lynn daily for television appearances, celebrity interviews, and red carpet events and provided a make-up artist who was a genius, as she puts it when it came to High-Definition television.
Fresh out of college and utterly thrilled to have a job after 6 months of rejections, Lynn desperately wanted to look like a “grown-up journalist” so she always wore a suit. Her style was classic. Serious. A grown-up journalist, with a splash of edge.
Lynn’s biggest mistake was wearing pantyhose in 95-degree heat while reporting in her early days on the streets of Miami. She wore them with everything, even underpants. She then realized that was a bad idea when she was interviewing someone and had to stop the interview after she felt something going down her leg which made her jump. It was sweat. She was dripping sweat under her black pants and control top pantyhose.
Now, a fitted dress with a pop of color is Lynn’s go-to television outfit.
