Susannah Constantine co-hosted the British fashion programme What Not To Wear from 2001 to 2005 alongside her longtime friend Trinny Woodall. Although the fashion experts have worked together on several projects, Susannah has also worked on numerous successful projects on her own! Did you know that she studied sculpture?

Born and raised in London, the 57-year-old fashion journalist and make-over expert Susannah Constantine is probably the right person to comment on your outfit before going to a party! And that is basically what she has done since the late 1980's when she first got involved in the fashion world by working for Giorgio Armani in the United States, and later on for John Galliano in London. However, it was in 1994 when she met her friend and fashion partner Trinny Woodall, with whom she hosted the BBC British fashion programme What Not To Wear from 2001 to 2005, which made her gain international recognition.

In 2006 Susannah and Trinny moved from the BBC to start their new show Trinny & Susannah Undress..., where they advised couples who were struggling with marriage issues. Later on, also alongside Trinny Woodall, Susannah appeared in Good Morning America as a make-over expert and fashion advisor. As of 2007, the fashion experts dressed over 5,000 women all over the world.

But what has Susannah done independently? It seems that she is really into reality television shows! In 2015 she took part in I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!a British survival reality television game show where a group of celebrities who live in a jungle camp in Australia have to deal with numerous challenges in order to survive.
