Tim Gunn Turns Author Again

Project Runway's Tim Gunn is following up his first book, Gunns Golden Rules, with what he is calling a "fashion bible".

His sophomore tome, Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible: The Fascinating History of Everything in Your Closet, will pick apart everything from shoes to underwear and even dish out styling tips.

Tim explains:

"Fashion is fun and thrilling — and it’s something that concerns everyone who wears clothing, not just an elite crew in midtown Manhattan. Every item of clothing means something, usually a lot of somethings. By pointing out what those things are, I hope this book will delight readers and magically transform their cluttered closets into world of wonders."

We think it sounds fascinating and can't wait to pick it up when it hits shelves in the fall of 2012.

Nina's Got Your Back, Anna!

Ouch!

Nina Garcia has weighed in on the claims Tim Gunn made about Anna Wintour in his new book, and she doesn't back her Project Runway castmate.

The Marie Claire fashion director said "To be honest with you, I haven't seen Anna being carried. I really have no comment about her being carried or not."

Nina better hope Tim doesn't write a follow up book, because if he does we have a feeling she'll be on the top of his shit list.

Tim Gunn Bashes Isaac Mizrahi

Me-ow!

Tim Gunn was forced to bite his tongue when it came to dishing the dirt on Isaac Mizrahi in his new book Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work.

The Project Runway mentor calls Mizrahi a "spoiled snob", but he could have done worse.

Tim told the NY Daily News:

"Oh, please, I was so kind to him. I mean, I wouldn't have the words to describe some of the more abhorrent behavior. He really is a terrible, terrible, terrible person."

Tell us how you really feel Tim!

He also calls Martha Stewart's daughter Alexis "one of the angriest people" he's ever met.

Gunn recalls how she "kept cursing under her breath in anticipation of her mother coming — 'goddamn bitch,' almost as if she had Tourette’s syndrome."

Well that doesn't really surprise us. She's the Queen of Crafts and everything has to be just right. We'd probably be uttering that too if she was our mother!

Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work hits shelves September 7th.

Anna Doesn't Do Stairs Either!

96715198_e1.jpg

What is with all these divas not wanting to walk up a couple flights of stairs?

First it was Naomi Campbell, and now a new story has come out saying Anna Wintour doesn't do them either!

In Tim Gunn's new book Gunn's Golden Rules, the Project Runway mentor describes a time when Vogue's editor-in-chief pulled an even more diva move than Naomi at Peter Som's fashion show in 2006.

Tim dishes:

"I was with a colleague from Parsons, and we had been discussing the will-she-or-won't-she-take-the-elevator question, so we ran over to the elevator bay to see if Anna would deign to get on. She wasn't there. Then we looked over the stairway railing. And what did we see but Anna being carried down the stairs. The bodyguards had made a fireman's lock and were racing her from landing to landing. She was sitting on their crossed arms.

I ran to the window to see if they would put her down on the sidewalk or carry her to the car like that. They carried her to the car. And I thought: I will never for get this."

Wow. We wish he got a picture of that!

Gunn also spills the deets on Andre Leon Talley's diva-tude behavior at a New York Public Library panel discussion with photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and Martha Nelson editor of People.

He divulges:

"When we return to the green room, we see that someone has spread a translucent barber's bib over Andre and he's reclining, his arms at his sides. He's being fed grapes and cubes of cheese one by one, like a bird in a nest."

Ha!

Of course Vogue is quick to deny both of Tim's claims saying "Tim Gunn has a very vivid imagination. There is no truth to any of this."

Suuuuure.

Who do U believe???
