While I was searching, several pictures of her face/hair came up and I once again noticed her gray streak. I've always been fascinated with it. Did you know that the streak just turned gray when she was 11? She apparently had a clause in her Pantene contract saying that she could keep it.
I am addicted to What Not to Wear, and I adore Stacy and Clinton. Stacy especially finds a cool balance between being into girly-girl things and not being cloying.
Did you know she started out as a fashion assistant at Vogue? That she was the senior fashion editor at Mademoiselle? For me, she just appeared out of nowhere one day on What Not to Wear with that mangy first co-host, so this was all really interesting to me. She also styled several fashion shows, celebrities and fashion spreads. She pretty much kicks ass.
Another thing that surprised me to hear is that Stacy has long struggled with weight issues, and suffered from psoriasis. She claims her weight has been everything from a size 0 to a size 16. She always seems so confident and lovely that this is hard for me to imagine. She says, "It really took a great deal of work to recognize that at all those weights, no matter how I felt, I could still find a dress that made me feel sexy and powerful." Suddenly her deft understanding of women on the show who feel ugly because they are a larger size makes so much more sense. She can help them find a confidence she had to struggle for herself.
To say Stacy London is one of my favorites would be a gross understatement. I mean, shut the front door! How adorable is she?
