So close. I spoke to style guru Tim Gunn today - the day before the finale of "Project Runway" Season 4, but couldn't get him to so much as hint at the winner. He did say that he's thrilled with the outcome. Really, it sounds like any outcome would have pleased him - Gunn says all of this season's designers were talented enough to win and he's expecting big things (bigger than we've seen from past vets so far) from many. Gunn said he'd jump at the opportunity to do a fifth season, which has yet to be announced, but seems inevitable given the show's continued popularity. As for his other Bravo show, "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style," Gunn didn't sound certain there would be a Season 2. Ever the diplomat, Gunn did admit the underwear drawer surprise scene in each episode "bothered me to no end." He'd like to see more education and fewer gimmicks...that is, if there's anything to see at all. Sounds like a decision has been made, it's just a matter of when Bravo announces it.
I'll have much more from Tim Gunn on "Project Runway," Isaac Mizrahi, his new job with Liz Claiborne, the trouble with petites and plus sizes and his own wardrobe in the St. Paul Pioneer Press on March 23. That's in advance of Gunn's March 26 appearance at Herberger's Rosedale Center.
