Tim Gunn says "make it work" a lot, and it seems the style spokesman is taking the motto to heart. He'll soon reprise his role as a Project Runway mentor, while also serving as the new chief creative officer of Liz Claiborne. And let's not forget his other show, Tim Gunn's Guide to Style, with dazzling Veronica Webb. But this Fall, the dapper Mr. Gunn has another starring role - as the front man for Macy's. He's now on television, performing in commercials with Martha Stewart, whose new home line just hit the department store. But Macy's isn't a Liz Claiborne company, and neither are Martha's licensed sheets... which means Liz Claiborne was so desperate for Mr. Gunn's unique talents, they let him have free reign within their conglomerate. If only Project Runway would give him the same leeway - whomever decided skeezy Vincent could outlast Alison Kelly ruined half of Season Three!
Tim Gunn Is Getting a Daytime Talk Show and Considering Designing a Plus-Size Line
Tim Gunn, the beloved mentor on Project Runway, is branching out in all sorts of new directions in 2012. Most notably, everyone's favorite filter-less and erudite fashion mentor has landed another TV spot co-hosting a new daytime talk show, The Revolution, which airs January 16 at 2pm EST on ABC. Each week the health and lifestyle show will feature one woman's five-month-long weight loss "journey" to change, compressed into five days; Friday will be the "reveal" day. (This is a great concept--who doesn't love a good make-over reveal?) Tim's role on the show will be to provide fashion and styling advice to these women whose bodies are undergoing big changes. He'll be joined in co-hosting duties by the often-frenetic Ty Pennington (interior design/art), Harley Pasternak (trainer and nutritionist to every hot celeb out there), Dr. Jennifer Ashton (OB/Gyn/women's health issues), and Dr. Tiffanie Davis Henry (relationship expert). While somewhat under the radar, Tim also signed on as Weight Watchers' "style consultant" last January.
