When we think of Tim Gunn, the mentor and nurturer on Project Runway, our thoughts are mostly warm and fuzzy. But don’t be fooled, this kitten has claws. Tim Gunn will not stand for for your bad styling, ladies. He will not stand for it. In an interview with Wonderwall he let us know how he really feels about the Kardashian’s clothing line and the Jersey Shore cast.
Wonderwall: What do you think of Jersey Shore style?
Gunn: Ugh! Oh! Don’t even get me started. It is not a style to emulate. I know that the show is hugely popular. I will tell you it pains me when I hear 12-year-old girls say it’s their favorite show. You shouldn’t be watching it!
WW: Are you a supporter of the Kardashians’ line with Bebe?
TG: No! I just think the Kardashians have an absence of taste and I don’t think that that should be perpetuated. I’m sorry I’m sounding like an old farty snob but it bothers me.
WW: You sound like somebody who’s telling the truth.
TG: I will say in general with celebrity labels, with the understanding that they’re not actually designing them, but you hope in a way that they’re not overseeing them either. I’m all in favor of anything that employs young designers.
Set em straight, Tim!
Are you with Tim, or Kim?
