TLC is bringing its longest-running unscripted series to an end. What Not to Wear will wrap up its run at the end of the upcoming tenth season, after having performed over 325 makeovers on people from all walks of life.
Although plenty of makeover shows have come and gone on television, What Not to Wear has been one of the most popular and a big hit for TLC. Hosted by Stacy London and Clinton Kelly, the series features ordinary people whose friends contact the show behind their backs begging the two fashion mavens to sweep in and change their frumpy friend’s style. Contestants are given money to buy a new wardrobe, as long as they agree to shop by the stylist’s rules—and throw away most of the things they currently own and wear. The show focuses mainly on the shopping aspect, but wraps up with a hair and make-up session that results in a complete overhaul.
The show has featured men, women, couples and even celebrity editions--all people in desperate need of some fashion help (the Big Bang Theory’s Mayim Bialik is famously among those ambushed for the show). Despite its celebrity background, TLC EVP and General Manager Amy Winter says the decision to cut the show seemed a natural one, stating, “After 10 incredible seasons, we felt it was the right time to end the series.” Both hosts have referred to the program as being a life-changing experience for them, as much as it was for many people who received makeovers on camera.
The final season of What Not to Wear will air on Fridays starting this July, and promises bigger transformations than ever before, as well as wilder shopping sprees and even some surprise guest appearances. No doubt we can trust Stacy and Clinton to go out in style.
