Yes! Finally! Tim Gunn lands his very own fashion show! The fashion gods have finally heard fashionistas cries for years to give the guru of all things fashion his own show! In a move that should've been taken years ago, Lifetime will unveil Tim Gunn's new show, aptly named 'Under The Gunn' on Jan. 16.
The show which will be another fashion reality competition will feature some of our favorite Runway alums like Mondo Guerra (!!), Anya Ayoung-Chee (!!) and Nick Verreos as mentors to teams of designers who will compete against each other in a series of fashion competitions. Think 'The Face' meets 'Project Runway'.
Just like 'Project Runway' be prepared for an all star cast of judges to vote who stays and who goes that will include Rachel Roy, celebrity stylist Jen Rade and Marie Claire's senior fashion edition Zanna Roberts Rassi. Wait...what? No Michael Kors, Zac Posen or Issac Mizrahi?? A man on the panel is always great to balance out the female perspective and with an all women judging panel will there be any of the dynamics we love so much on 'Project Runway'? Can Zanna Roberts Rassi live up to Nina Garcia's standards and blunt force honesty?
But let's take a moment to look at the mentors on 'Under The Gunn'. Could they not have picked a more dynamic and eclectic group of people? Mondo Guerra is a master of all things quirky, Anya Ayoung-Chee is the mistress of eclectic and chic while Nick Verreros is the master of elegance. Will these three judges be able to step outside of their personal styles to help their teams win?
Regardless of what will happen between the mentor and their teams and the judges we can already hear Tim Gunn's infamous words ringing through 'Make it work!'
