Hello, It's Tim Gunn Calling!

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 12:09am GMT

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.

Tim Call Phone Call Message

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."

Carry on!

See Our "Project Runway" 'Scopes!

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 6:34pm GMT

Is your favorite designer destined to win "Project Runway" Season 6? Maybe it's all in the stars? Check out our "Project Runway" Horoscopes for more on how these designers are inspired and influenced by their astrological signs:

Ari Fish
Birth date: 6/18/83
Innovative Ari has Sun, Mercury and Mars in Gemini, the sign of the twins. Perhaps this explains why she likes designing "two-in-ones," like reversible jackets or a "really cool coat ... that turns into a backpack, that turns into a tent." With her Libra Moon, she’s a good-natured people person, but a bit flighty at times. She’s more fascinated by treasure-hunting for art than trolling for drama. Still, she may inadvertently get swept into fights by trying to play the mediator’s role. With Venus in Leo, life is a costume party for Ari — the more ostentatious, the better!

Malvin Vien

New York City-based designer Malvin Vien attended college at the University of Redlands, where he earned a degree in Social Medicine and Creative Solipsism through the University’s Center for alternative studies. He gained some of his early design training at the university’s costume department and later went on to study fashion design at Parsons The New School for Design.

Meet the Project Runway Designers: Nicolas Putvinski

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 8:37pm GMT

Nicolas PutvinskiNicolas Putvinski first realized his designer potential at age 15 when he made a pleather tube top dress for his 12 year old sister and hasn't stopped since.

Born in Moscow, Russia, Nicolas spent most of his childhood in San Diego, CA, and had only three weeks to learn English before starting school in America. Nicolas went on to study design at the Fashion Institute of Technology and received further training at Izquierdo Studio in New York, where we caught up with him for his home visit in New York City (with his dog, Chardonnay!):

Nicolas has had a number of works commissioned by W Magazine and Vogue, and has served as the lead assistant to the costumer who makes the famous angel wings for Victoria’s Secret. In February, Nicolas created a gown for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Oscars Design Challenge. Check out these designs and more of Nicolas' work in his designer portfolio.
