Last summer, Tide announced that Tim Gunn would be their new spokes- person. We finally saw his "Dressing to the Sevens" video and it is a gem. In it, Tim talks about how your clothes need to do more than just fit correctly and make the perfect first impression - they also have to be clean. He gives solid advice, like to go through your closet and throw away any stained articles of clothing or anything that has, "more pills than a bottle of aspirin." And the way he basically says, "Treat your clothes with respect, hang them up, fold them etc." is way nicer than the way my mom used to say it.
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.
