Stacy London of TLC’s “What Not to Wear” fame is returning to TLC with her own show, titled “Love, Lust, or Run.” London co-starred with Clinton Kelly in “What Not to Wear,” which premiered in January 2003 and was cancelled in 2013 after 10 seasons.
With arguably one of the most long-running makeover shows on TV in her resume, can London’s new show attract a similar number of viewers?
We think so.
According to Deadline , True Entertainment has ordered 12 half-hour episodes, where viewers will be introduced to women dedicated to outrageous fashion.
London will use her time by working on giving them each a makeover and stripping away their extraneous and unnecessary accessories and makeup.
London stated , “For me, this new series was an evolution of ‘What Not to Wear,’ and not wanting to leave the style space made this a perfect opportunity for me,” conveying her love for the fashion TV genre.
She told People Magazine , “I’m super excited to be back…
I was burnt out after ‘What Not to Wear.’ It was a good amount of time for me to take off.
I rested and did a lot of traveling, it was amazing!” She continued , “It was an easy thing to say yes to…
Everyone here is like family and it felt like the right time.” As for how she’ll hand out her fashion advice? London stated , “I’ll try to do it in the nicest way possible…
But you might as well let people know.
I’ll be like, ‘Hey, not that you asked me, but just a quick thought,'” joking about her unsolicited suggestions.
General manager of TLC Nancy Daniels stated , “I am so thrilled to have Stacy back on TLC! She has an amazing ability to connect with fashion challenged women and help them find their own sense of style.
With this new show, we definitely put Stacy’s skills to the test.” “Love, Lust, or Run” will premiere on January 23 at 9pm on TLC.
