Tim Gunn Thinks Fashion’s Size Standards Are “Repugnant”

“I’ve had my own moments in front of designers when I’ve actually said, ‘You know, there’s a market here for expanding your work, and here it is,’” Gunn told us. “And frankly, there are two markets: The women who are larger than the 12, and then there are women who are petite. And most designer…

Tim Gunn Critiques “Star Trek” Fashions

Gather ’round, nerds: (Amelia, that means you!) Tim Gunn sat down with the web series Crazy Sexy Geeks for a trés serious critique of “Star Trek” fashion. It’s still interesting even if, like me, you could care less about “Star Trek” because the host is a fountain of information about the costuming decisions for the…

“Project Runway”‘s All-Star Edition Won’t Feature Any Of The Show’s Stars

Just as “America’s Next Top Model” is returning this fall with a season of “all stars” (read: also-rans who didn’t win), “Project Runway” is also pulling out its past losers for an all star season, featuring past season runner-ups who are angling for a second chance at top prize. The difference? The all-star show won’t…

Morning Quickies: Tim Gunn Thinks Hillary Clinton Is “Confused About Her Gender”


Tim Gunn thinks Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is “confused about her gender.” The claws came out when Gunn went on “Lopez Tonight” and dissed Clinton’s “big, baggy menswear tailored pantsuits. No, I’m really serious. [They’re] unflattering.” Wow. Inappropriate. She’s pushing 70 and works in government — what exactly do you want…

Heidi Klum Forces Tim Gunn To Run

Tim Gunn Talks Smack About Gretchen Jones Winning “Project Runway”

“Why did the villain win? Why? I could not believe it. Gretchen’s talented, and she’s not a horrible person. But was she the winner of the season? I don’t think so. The ‘Project Runway’ designers are like my kids. I love them all. I will say I love some more than others. And there’s some…

Tim Gunn And Conan O’Brien On The Nature Of Jeggings

“Project Runway” host Tim Gunn is pretty much our gay spirit dad — and what he says goes. Especially when it comes to the debatable denim-vention, The Jegging. In this clip from “Conan,” Conan O’Brien comes out on Team Jeggings while Tim is (rightfully) on the jeggings fence. And don’t even get them started…

Is Tim Gunn’s Industry Rant Streak Just Or Becoming Unprofessional?

Full disclosure: we’re crazy for Tim Gunn. But some are beginning to question his recent open attitude towards the fashion industry. The scandal gained momentum after the release of Gunn’s book in which he unapologetically called out Anna Wintour’s behavior, and repeatedly referenced her ridiculousness in his many press appearances for the book. And he…

Tim Gunn Calls Suri Cruise A “Dress-Up Doll”

“Suri is her mother and father’s dress-up doll. I think in many ways she’s a fashion victim and it’s very inappropriate … I feel bad for her.”

Tim Gunn is definitely on a war path against divas and seems to have the adage of “any publicity is good publicity” as his strategy. He…

Frisky Q&A: Tim Gunn On Evil Gretchen, Martha Stewart’s Rude Kid, And Kissing Michelle Obama

Tim Gunn has a giant pair of balls.

No, I am not intimately familiar with the contents of Tim’s nattily tailored suits. I have read the “Project Runway” mentor’s latest book, a half-memoir/half-etiquette guide called Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons For Making It Work, and let me tell you, this man has chutzpah.

Who — Or What — Is Your Spirit Animal?

What do a mini-pony and “Project Runway”‘s Tim Gunn have in common? Well, not much — except that I consider both to be my spirit animals. What’s a spirit animal you ask? It’s anything, or anyone, you consider to be a guiding light or force in your life, or an animal you feel as though…

Tim Gunn’s Mutiny: Asks If “Project Runway” Judges Are Smoking Crack

Last night brought the season premiere of “Project Runway,” and I tried—really tried—to stay awake through all 90 minutes of it. But while this show once seemed so fresh and original, now that it’s in its 8th season, it’s just stale. So to add an extra 30 minutes to every episode? Egads. I found myself…

Quotable: Tim Gunn Saw Anna Wintour Being Carried Down The Stairs

“I was with a colleague from Parsons, and we had been discussing the will-she-or-won’t-she-take-the-elevator question, so we ran over to the elevator bay to see if Anna [Wintour] would deign to get on. She wasn’t there. Then we looked over the stairway railing. And what did we see but Anna being carried down the stairs.

Quotable: Tim Gunn Will Not Be Wearing The Kardashians’ Line For Bebe Anytime Soon

“No! I just think the Kardashians have an absence of taste and I don’t think that that should be perpetuated. I’m sorry I’m sounding like an old farty snob but it bothers me.”– Tim Gunn, when asked if he is a supporter of the Kardashian sisters’ line with Bebe [Huffington Post]…
