Tim Gunn Back in the Closet (Hehe)


Everyone’s favorite gay father figure is coming back to Bravo this week. Set your DVRs for Bravo on September 6th, at 10PM if you’re a Tim Gunn fan. He and diesel-armed Veronica Webb will be helping “fashion-challenged” ladies find their personal style on Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style. Basically, it’s a makeover show that will probably feel like watching someone go to therapy (What Not to Wear, anyone?), and personally, I can watch endless hours of that kind of shit.

Gunn’s PR people sent over some “matierials” on the show, and since my ADD is particularly challenging today, I couldn’t make it through any actual paragraphs, but there was a list of “basic pieces” that Tim says every woman should do well. Do you pass the test?

Basic black dress, Trench coat, Classic dress pants, Skirt, Blazer, Classic white shirt, Day dress, Cashmere sweater, Jeans, Sweatsuit alternative. Bonus: One indulgent trendy item.

We’re batting about 5/11, and that’s being generous… Also, sweatsuit alternative?
