She received her A.B. from Vassar College with a double major in Philosophy and Germanic Studies, graduating Phi Beta Kappa.

Stacy London co-hosts "What Not to Wear" with Clinton Kelly. She is known for her wit, as well as the trademark grey streak in her hair. She also has a love for high-heeled shoes. In a "Best of 2005" lookback show, Clinton Kelly teased London by saying "....there are almost as many great moments as there are high heels in Stacy's wardrobe." Stacy is more aggressive than her male co-host, and will bluntly criticize guests for their fashion mishaps.
