Russell Davenport - 90s After.jpgLook at that fella! If someone dressed you up like that, wouldn't you demand an apology?

That's Bollingbrook resident Russell Davenport on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" back in 1990, and even though he didn't demand an apology, he's getting one on Thursday's edition of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" -- from Oprah herself.

"So I would like to take this moment to personally apologize to you for that [1990 makeover] ... for the layers, the socks, the rolled up thing, the man purse," Oprah tells Davenport. "This was at a time when we clearly were still working out the kinks in our
makeover department. ... I don't know what on earth were we thinking?"

Well, he could have found work in, say, a Deee-Lite video.

Thursday, Davenport is back on Oprah's stage, where he is surprised by the opportunity for another makeover -- this time by "Project Runway's" Tim Gunn.

Also on the show, former "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" Carson Carson Kressley is set loose on the streets to give unsuspecting men some unsolicited fashion advice.


UPDATE: Davenport just spoke with the Sun-Times about his Oprah makeover redux. Read the story here, and check out his new "before" photo ...
