"After 10 incredible seasons, we felt that it was the right time to end the series," said Amy Winter, TLC's executive vice president and general manager, in a statement Wednesday. "Stacy and Clinton have also become two of the most sought after fashion experts and TV personalities in the industry."

Before you ask, "Is this show still on," the answer is an obvious yes and Season 10 kicks off in July with "WNTW" returning to its original Friday-night home.


"This show changed me and the trajectory of my life," London said. "I've learned so much from all of our contributors over the years. I hope we touched them as much as they touched me. I hope we touched our viewers. It feels like the end of an era and I look forward to my next chapter."


Kelly concurred adding, "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. So, I'm more surprised than anyone that we've lasted this long."


London has been with the show, which is an American take on a British series of the same name, since the beginning. Kelly joined in Season 2 and replaced former co-host, Wayne Scot Lukas.


Over the years, London and Kelly have overseen more than 300 fashion makeovers. And fans can expect a 10th and final season full of exciting ambushes, dramatic transformations and huge shopping sprees.


"What Not to Wear" returns July 2013 on TLC.

I loved/love the show. I know they did all kinds of shapes of women. Except for the really large women. Their idea of large was 16/18. Now, that might satisfy most, but a few of us would have liked to see 24-28 size women. They are just as real and important and I wish they had done more in that size range. People have problems and issues and need help. And, the final may not be this world's view of what is beautiful, but it would have encouraged and validated many large and I mean large sized women in our world. So, in my view they screwed up and didn't show an important portion of the REAL women.

I'm sorry Linda, but I have to wonder from your comment if you have ever actually watched the show! As a person who has watched the show over the past 10 years I can say it has always been very diverse and does not only show model thin women (as a matter of fact I don't think I have EVER seen someone on the show who even remotely looked like a model). They really are just average women of all shapes and sizes. Sometimes yes, even thin women need style advice. No we do not all have $200 to spend on a pair of jeans, but the show is meant to show you how clothes should fit, and give you ideas for style. I don't think it was meant to be a shopping list of specific brand names you should go out and purchase.

I love this show and will miss it!  I have learned a few things for sure!  I love clothes and shoes anyway!  Some said they didn't get overweight women on the show - REALLY?? Were you not watching the show??  They had ALOT of large women on this show. I enjoyed the smaller women because I could relate to them more, but it was interesting to see how the clothes fit the larger women - they always looked so good afterwards! They also did several older women, maybe not as many as viewers would like, but it didn't matter to me - I just loved watching it!!

WNTW was the last reason I had to watch TLC. I have watched the show from the beginning and my husband and kids are very familiar with Stacy and Clinton. We all ask ourselves "what would Stacy and Clinton say" before we walk out of the house in something questionable. TLC used to have quality programming but like so many other networks they have sold out to the tackiness that is reality tv because that type of programming is cheap. I don't think I will be tuning in to TLC after this show ends. After all, I thought that TLC stood for The Learning Channel and I don't want to learn anything from Honey Boo Boo, Sister Wives, or Gypsy Sisters. Maybe they should rename the network Vouyer TV.

used to love this show, but I believe that it has definitely run its course. They all started looking the same and I think the "fashion" sense of Clinton and Kelly aside from the love yourself where and who you are, is circumspect.
Too bad it is ending before they did a couple of shows on older, (over 55) women, and what some might consider overweight.  We are not all 6 foot tall & weigh 100 lbs.  Use "normal" women and show us how to buy the clothes that will mix & match for both work & play because we all don't have a fortune to spend on clothing!  Jeans that cost $200, you have got to be joking!!!!  Alot of us go to Penney's, Wal-mart, etc and buy our clothes, we can't even begin to imagine spending that kind of money on 1 pair of pants.  But, I must say, I loved Nick when he was doing the hair, that haircut by that man would make me run down 5th Avenue naked.  Again though, we can't all spend $500 for a haircut, I know the man is good but again who spends that kind of money on a haircut.  Thanks for letting me have my say!!

Stacy and Clinton really changed the way I dress myself.  I am embarrassed that I used to be one of those Christmas sweater women.  I will miss the show, but I think I learned enough from watching it to be able to look well dressed from now on.  Thanks for all the tips guys.  I loved the show and will miss it.

so sorry to see the show end .loved it. maybe all the negative comments are from men. we women have had to endure all those football ,car racing ,wrestling shows for years. time we women have something we like to watch. and honey boo boo ,19 and counting ,sister wives are dumb shows WNTW is about average and real people. the key word there is average

Really?  He is wearing that?  Stacy could you an update on her hair also.   Everyone they "redo" looks the same, regardless of size or shape.   If I see one more fitted jacket, I will scream!

Are they still taking nominations ?  Because I would like to nominate myself - 55 years old, graduating from college this summer. Boy do I need a makeover for my new life
Good!  They never have anyone over 40 on the show!

I have always loved this show and will miss it!!! I think Stacy and Clinton do so much more for the people on the show than just changing their wardrobe. They manage to instill a sense of confidence and make people feel good about themselves. I often find myself thinking about their fashion advice when buying clothing or trying to put together an outfit. When I'm asked if something matches, I say "It doesn't have to match, it just has to go" LOL - Thanks Stacy and Clinton!!!

Mar 7, 2013 9:07AM
I look at that guy and think to myself "he is a reputable fashion expert?  I wouldn't be caught dead wearing the stuff he puts on"  Look at the picture of him attached to this article!!

Soooo sad to hear this show is going away. I love you guys.that really SUCKS.

If you don't like a show, don't watch it.  I like WNTW and it does help us learn how to dress our bodies to look our best. 

While I don't agree with all I have seen on Honey Boo Boo, she is cute as can be, especially about Elvis being Santa's helpers.  One thing I have noticed, she does not talk back to her mother nor does she throw temper tantrums.


These two shows are like most of TV, they are shown to entertain us, if they help us in some way while we are being entertained - that is great!

I am so sorry to hear that this is the last season for WNTW;  I love this show and have watched from the beginning.  I agree that there are some changes that could be made (like not including celebrity make overs, they can afford their own; having more shows with older women--we are not all young things, who can wear all the trendy styles).  I really hope they will reconsider ending the show after this season.  I can't stand ANY of the reality shows that are on right now.  Let's all take a vote to keep it going!!!!!!      Betty in N.C.

I hated that they kept changing the night it was on.  Friday night was always WNTW at my house then they started switching nights and it was hard to keep up with.
