Unless you’ve been living under a very large, meteor-sized rock for the past decade or so, you’re familiar with Stacy London, her unattainable level of badassery, and her general life prowess. The stylist, author, and television host may have become a household name after her hugely successful series What Not to Wear and more recently, Love, Lust, or Run; but beyond her styling chops, London is whip-smart, funny as hell, refreshingly down-to-earth, and a damn good mentor (I speak from experience).
