Her full name is Stacey J Aswad and she does have her own web site. She's been doing the 7 things loops since 2005. No specific age given but her work history goes back 20 years so she is at least on her 30s. I wouldn't say dowdy but she can't look bubbly early 20s something anymore either.

Just watched the clip..the clothes aren't actually that bad. But, I don't think they're something she actually picked out. She looks a little uncomfortable and not as perky.

It's a fine line when you're in your thirties...you don't want to look frumpy, but there is nothing sadder than a woman who looks her age trying to dress like a 15 year old.

2nd this..I am 35 and a mom, but I don't dress dowdy..But it is hard, and takes alot of trying on clothes and putting back and trying again...Clothing stores either have young and trendy, or matronly and boxy looking.It is VERY hard to dress chic,modern yet age appropriate.Stacey looks fine to me, a little conservative, but this is disney we are talking about.

OK, I noticed this too. She looks Awful compared to the other ones. We noticed she drastically changed looks when we were there in March 2009. Her hair is AWFUL! It used to be kind of stylish, if I remember right, but this one was long and stringy and thrwon back in a barret. And not nicely either.

OK, I went and looked at past years too, and I guess her hair was always awful. LOL! But last trip for some reason that was the first thing I focused on. But she is much more peppy in the older ones.

Agreed, but I also see the OP's point--her clothes are less colorful than in the previous "Top 7" video, and they brought the energy down a little, too. I definitely prefer "Top 7" to the current one, but I still like Stacey.

Love Stacey, but have to agree I do not like this toned down version of her.

I just returned from WDW and can confirm that it is still the toned down, dowdy version of stacey.

the reason she was so good in her original video was that she displayed great enthusiasm for the parks. she was having FUN and made the viewer want to go have fun.

the new version of stacey is sedate, calmer, less fun.

it is not about whether she looks good or bad, nor is it about whether women on this board wished they looked like her or not. the issue is whether she is projecting the image of fun and youthful exuberance that makes these videos good.

i say not, sadly.

Ok, since I'm a man, someone is going to need to explain what dowdy means before I comment on this thread!

Ok, I may be mis-pronouncing this----but no one caught her name? LOL.

I would just like to say that no matter how she looks and how she dresses, Ms Stacey is a VERY LOVELY LADY. We actually had the priviledge of meeting her in 2009 when she was in the MK filming the "newer" footage! She actually took time out of filming to shake our hands, sign our autograph book and take a photo!! You can read about our experience in the following link!!!

Meeting Stacy!!!!!
