Stacy London has investigated hundreds of people's closets on TLC's "What Not to Wear." But what can we learn about fashion by taking a closer look at her wardrobe? Luckily, we don't have to snoop through her Brooklyn home to get a read on her style do's and don'ts. By taking a close look at what she wears on TV, we can tell the fashion rules by which this style diva lives.

Stacy is no stranger to the media and the world of fashion. After serving on the fashion editorial teams of Vogue and Mademoiselle, she's been co-hosting TLC's "What Not to Wear"since 2002. In addition, she has styled celebrities such as Kate Winslet, Liv Tyler and Katie Holmes, served as a style correspondent for the "Today" show and appeared on "Access Hollywood," "Oprah," "Tyra" and "Wendy Williams."

Stacy is a big believer in staying true to who you are and never fighting against your natural beauty. For instance, she never dyes her signature gray streak in the front of her hair. In fact, a condition of her contract with Pantene stipulates that she will never have to remove her grays.

But there's more to Stacy than just clothes-sense: She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Vassar. And in keeping with her trademark wit, she says that she and her cat Al live in Brooklyn with her shoe collection.

We've watched the clips and honed in on ten fashion tips learned from Stacy's wardrobe. Let's start with the most obvious.
