Tune into NBC's "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" tonight, Thursday, August 13 at 12:35 am et/pt as Tim Gunn visits to talk about Season 6 of "Project Runway" on Lifetime.
Want more Tim on your TV this week? He'll be guest starring on Lifetime's "Drop Dead Diva" on Sunday at 10 pm et/pt!
Would you kill to spend a minute gabbing with "Project Runway" fashion mentor (and S.A.T. vocabulary buff) Tim Gunn? Well, you're one step closer.
Starting today, you can send your very own personalized Tim Gunn phone call to family, friends, co-workers, old flames and everyone else you can think of with our Tim Gunn phone message activity that we've just launched on the site: Send a personalized Tim Gunn phone message now.
Picture the look on your friend's face when they get a call from Tim Gunn talking about their fashion tastes, jobs, favorite hobbies and more. It's even funnier to hear Tim repeat some of the best "Runway" quotes the judges have ever flung at designers. (Ah-hem: "It looks like $29.99 prom!", compliments of Mr. Michael Kors.)
Don't hang up! Make sure you've heard Tim out. There is a little surprise quote at the end of each message that longtime "Runway" fans are sure to love. It's an homage to one of the best "Project Runway" scenes to date.
So send a few messages now. It's free and it only takes a couple of steps. I've already sent six! ...To myself! Get started now!
P.S. A bit of behind-the-scenes trivia, Gunn fans: Tim is always very eloquent on "Project Runway," but is he a fast-talker too? Yes, he is! He can read over 550 names, recite all 50 states and do numerous one-liners in about an hour. That's how long it took Mr. Gunn to do the voice recordings for your personal messages. He's one of the fastest on record alongside Alec Badlwin who recorded one for "30 Rock."
Finally! “Project Runway” is back. Starting August 20 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime, 16 new designers are ready to compete for a chance to show their design skills at Fashion Week.
And to get everyone ready for the show’s premiere, we’re unveiling the new crop of “Project Runway designers” and introducing them to you with more access than ever before. Get a personal tour of their homes, watch their audition tapes, snag a fashion tip or two, see their casting sessions and look inside their closets. We’re rolling out 80 video clips — five per designer — so you can start to judge who you think will make the cut right away.
We also have more than 40 galleries in our “Project Runway” photos section that show each designer’s journey from kid fashionista to the “Runway.” And, most importantly (and most awesomely), check out the designers’ portfolios for their sketches and designs and to find out what makes them tick ... their inspirations from music to choice fabrics to the style icons they love.
In case you happen to forget when the big premiere date is happening (for shame!), we’ve got you covered. Our “Project Runway” Season 6 countdown clock is here for you to grab and proudly display on your blogs or favorite social networking sites like Facebook. Speaking of Facebook, give us a shout on the official “Project Runway” Facebook page and stay in the know with tweets from Twitter, so you’ll never miss the latest updates.
And once Season 6 begins, we promise you’ll experience “Project Runway” like never before online. Here’s a little peek at what’s coming: Detailed critiques from Tim Gunn on every design … every episode. Designer sketches for every design … every episode. Extended judges’ feedback on every design … every episode. And that’s just the beginning. With new fashion games, a souped-up version of Rate the Runway, a sweepstakes for the chance to win $25,000 and meet Tim Gunn, a community that will let you talk about the show and comment in all kinds of ways about the designs, a designer scorecard and more. You won’t be disappointed!
