Stacy London and Clinton Kelly begin their final stretch as hosts of TLC’s makeover series What Not To Wear on August 9, and end it with an October road trip — to Vegas — on October 18. The network released details of the final season in today’s announcement:
As previously announced, TLC’s longest running primetime series and one of the longest running makeover shows in television history – WHAT NOT TO WEAR – is coming to an end. Starting August 9 at 10/9c, TLC will start airing the last episodes back on Friday nights where the series aired for most of its run. The series finale is scheduled to air Friday, October 18. In each episode of WHAT NOT TO WEAR, TLC resident fashion experts Stacy London and Clinton Kelly face an assortment of fashionably challenged contributors, providing them with invaluable fashion advice and life-changing transformations, inside and out. Over the course of 10 seasons, Stacy and Clinton have orchestrated over 325 memorable makeovers for men, celebrities, multi-generational fashion victims, and some of the most deserving women who were in need of drastic fashion overhauls.
The last season includes some of Stacy and Clinton’s biggest challenges to-date, including a trifecta of fashion disasters where three friends break almost all of Stacy and Clinton’s style rules covered over 10 seasons. The final run also features a mother of nine who gets a $10,000 makeover vs. the usual $5,000, a woman who gets a surprise visit from Stacy and Clinton while sitting in the audience of The Chew, and a behind-the-scenes episode where viewers will get a never-before-seen look inside what it takes to produce each episode of WHAT NOT TO WEAR. TLC will also air two hour-long clip shows, where Stacy and Clinton give viewers a crash course on their style strategy as they reveal their top 10 important fashion rules right out of their rule book, and answer letters from long-time fans.
In the two-hour series finale, Stacy and Clinton road trip to the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas to attend a fabulous party in honor of the end of the show. Along the way from New York to Las Vegas they visit past contributors and reminisce on the road. Once they hit Vegas, Stacy and Clinton find one last makeover candidate wandering the hotel which results in their final makeover ever, and it could be one for the books. It all leads up to an epic finale party, where over 100 past contributors over the past 10 seasons await Stacy, Clinton, Ted and Carmindy to help bid them a fond farewell they’ll never forget.
WHAT NOT TO WEAR is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for TLC.
