Tim Gunn

Tim Gunn’s almost a kind of spiritual leader around here, and we take all his guidance very seriously. So, when our style sage gave fashion advice to Emmy host Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show, we took detailed notes.

Here are some easy ways to please His Holiness (yes, we just promoted him). And, as always, Tim’s red carpet advice is also applicable to your everyday life.

1. Wear a simple black-and-white tuxedo. Otherwise, Tim will be “despondent.” And if he’s not happy, we’re not happy.

2. While walking the red carpet, think, “I own my look, and I know I look sensational.” Unbridled confidence makes any look work.

3. Stand up straight and refrain from drooling.

4. Find the “core of you,” and your style will follow.

Oh, Tim Gunn, so wise—you could probably solve all the world's ills if you just had the time to do it. In any case, come Sunday, we hope red carpet strutters heed your advice. Otherwise, they may not enjoy what Kimora Lee Simmons and Carson Kressley have to say on Monday night’s Fashion Police, here on E!
