We never thought we'd see the day, but all good things must come to an end. After ten seasons on the air, What Not To Wear
will be taking its final bow. TLC's longest-running primetime series will finish out by running its final shows on Friday nights, starting this July.
Are Stacy, Clinton, Carmindy and Ted sad to leave the cozy embrace of the 360 mirror? You bet. But they're also thrilled to be going out with a bang. "I'm excited about our final episodes. ... We are getting to do things
we've never had the opportunity to do before, and there are many
surprises in store," said host Stacy London.
Plus, both stylists have several other projects in the works. For the past two years, Clinton Kelly has served as a host on ABC's daytime talk show The Chew. And in 2012, Stacy released her first book, The Truth About Style.
"I'm proud of the work we've done and the lives we've changed," said Clinton. "And I'm relieved I
don't have to point out that dark-wash jeans look dressier than
light-wash jeans every day of my freakin' life."
Just how many makeovers have the crew completed? A whopping 325! That's a lot of shopping!
And WNTW had a profound impact -- not just on the style of the contributors, but on the hosts as well. “I've learned so much from all of our contributors over the years," said Stacy. "I
hope we touched them as much as they touched
me. I hope we touched our viewers. (I certainly see our rules in
practice every day!) It feels like the end of an era and I look forward to my next chapter. I will always cherish the time I spent on WNTW and be eternally grateful to TLC for a great co-host,
amazing crew and an awesome program."
"When I got the job, I told everyone I knew that we’d probably do ten episodes, get canceled and I’d go crawling back
to my old job in magazine publishing," admits Clinton. So, I’m
more surprised than anyone that we’ve lasted this long. As it turns out, WNTW is about taking stock of who you are
and communicating that non-verbally to the rest of the world. That’s incredibly empowering.”
