Her makeover inspiration: When she’s getting her grub on during TV Diner or interviewing serious movers and shakers on Comcast Newsmakers, Johnson doesn’t have the opportunity to indulge her high-glam side. But for her makeover at G2O, she sought inspiration from screen queens of Hollywood’s golden age. She’s a longtime lover of iconic beauties like Marilyn Monroe and Greta Garbo; some of her fondest childhood memories are of watching classic films with her beloved grandmother. And right now, Johnson is even making wall hangings for her home using the starlet-filled covers of vintage LIFE magazine issues. It’s important to be relatable when you work on the small screen, but this was a chance to channel the style of larger-than-life stars.
