The ever-charming Tim Gunn is one busy fellow. From mentoring the designers of Project Runway to working on Fashion Week to handling his own show, you'd think he has little time for other things. Even so, there's apparently another endeavor he's pursuing.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the host of Tim Gunn's Guide to Style will be releasing a book next year. Titled "Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Instructions to Making It Work", the tome will be published by Simon Spotlight Entertainment. It's due in June 2010, following his bestselling 2007 work "Tim Gunn: A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style."
On an interview with Fox News, the silver-haired gent shared some tips for ladies who wish to dress the Tim Gunn way. Spotted at the Addressing Psoriasis Fashion Show in New York, the Project Runway star had some words for those women wanting to look good while on a budget. Some of these are probably in his book, so it wouldn't hurt to get a headstart on studying up on that.
"There are three key elements to getting your fashion right and they are silhouette, proportion, and fit," Gunn said. "It has nothing to do with a particular label or its textile or its price, it's those three elements. And it's true for women and it's true for men as well."
For those who aren't too fond of scouring racks of clothes for a good bargain, he even suggests going on the web. "I'm a big advocate for online shopping, especially when it comes to sizes, because few things irritate me or disappoint me as much as actually making the trip to the store only to find that they don't have my size!"
Tim says it's not all about trends, since there's one fashion no-no he wishes would just disappear from the planet. Whether you're being frugal or not, the Project Runway mentor will never allow it: "Crocs!"
Actually, you'd be better off buying Tim's book - "Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Instructions to Making It Work" - than slipping on that nasty footwear. Catch the style guide in bookstores in June 2010.
