Oh Look: Another Well-to-Do, Trash-Talking Fashion Nazi


MySpace is pushing a promotion for Bravo's series premier of Tim Gunn's Guide to Style, which looks like Tim Gunn's sad attempt to become the fashion world's version of the UK's Brian Sewell, who travels the world to say nasty things about everyone else's ancient oeuvres.

We are not convinced by his "fashion therapy" approach, but maybe it's only because he hasn't got an accent.

If a niche authority were a piece of American real estate, his or her value could increase by at least $2-$4,000 with proper use of an accent alone. Call it the personality variant of flying buttresses or vaulted ceilings.

Don't knock on Tim Gunn!

I'm not sure Myspace is the way to go with this promotion, but Tim Gunn is definitely the best part of addictive, popular shows like Project Runway. He seems very intelligent but conscientious, more like a beloved professor than a snarky, judge-y diva. I'm not really a fan of the makeover show format, but I'm hoping his character can redeem it!

A very interesting guy, as revealed through Project Runway... who appears to do his best analytical thinking when pinching, rubbing or stroking his chin. Perhaps a secret to his success which we can apply ourselves? :^)
