After a 10-season run, U.S. network TLC has decided to end its prime time makeover series What Not to Wear this summer.

The last episodes of the BBC Worldwide Productions series will air on Friday nights in July.

In each hour-long episode, fashion experts Stacy London and Clinton Kelly (pictured, above) transformed a style-challenged contributor through a new wardrobe, hair and makeup.

Over its 10 seasons, London and Kelly have overseen 325 fashion overhauls.

The series was inspired by BBC2′s original version which kicked off in 2001 with hosts Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine.

“After 10 incredible seasons, we felt that it was the right time to end the series,” said Amy Winter, EVP and general manager of TLC. “Stacy and Clinton have also become two of the most sought after fashion experts and TV personalities in the industry. We’re so proud to have had the two of them along with Carmindy and Ted as the glam squad behind this fan-favorite show, and the final episodes will definitely be a celebration of this monumental run.”

“We are thankful to our entire cast and production crew for their dedicated commitment to continually create and innovate, making this show the best of the best,” added Jane Tranter, head of BBC Worldwide Productions.

“I will always cherish the time I spent on WNTW and be eternally grateful to TLC for a great co-host, amazing crew and an awesome program,” said Stacy London.
