Tim Gunn Overarching Angel of Project Runway

What will you be doing tonight at 9 p.m. ET tonight? We’ll be on the couch, popcorn in hand, watching the premiere of Project Runway on Lifetime.

YourTango recently chatted with PR newbie and designer to the stars Zac Posen, and got the scoop on what’s happening behind the scenes - from what he and Heidi disagree on to Tim Gunn’s role as the “overarching angel of the show.”

On what Jennifer Aniston should wear for her wedding: I think that Jennifer Aniston looks really good when she’s really clean. I mean, I’d love to see Jennifer in Azzedine Alaia. She has a rocking body. It's super elegant. The level of sort of architecture and simplicity, I think would balance her sporty, easy-[going attitude].

On what Kim Kardashian should wear for her wedding: I think she should make her own dress. I think she should design and make her own dress. I think that would feel the most authentic.

On the dress he’s working on for a “secret musician:” I’m working on a piece right now for an amazing musician. I can’t who yet, but bringing her fantasy to fruition is a thrilling experience. With a wedding gown, custom, you have the time to perfect and nuance and tweak and change every little element of it, and it's a real labor of love, and it’s a very real deal.

On what it’s like to work with Heidi: Amazing. Heidi is inspiring; she is driven; she is funny; she is entertaining. Heidi is sort of the bijoux of the whole show and holds it all together. I think Tim is sort of the overarching angel of the show. I think the show is so fortunate, and the fans are so fortunate and the viewers to have him involved because he's a light.

On what he and Heidi usually disagree about: Heidi and I usually push for the more creative people and the newer ideas. Nina is definitely always going for what is the chicest to her, what is the most in trend in fashion at the moment. She comes from an editorial standpoint. I come from a real design standpoint of like, is this idea going to be something that in the future Nina is going to like?  Tim comes from the development side, which is, how do we get this design and idea to be ready to present.

What is Size XO Fashion

What is size XO fashion ? OK, it is possible you have never heard of size XO.  It is also possible that size XO does not exist or never has existed.  Well, the fact of the matter is that I am fairly sure size XO does exist.  I was on facebook last night and on the Fashion Bug page someone was asking why Fashion Bug charged more for size XO then they did for size XL.  The lady writting the post mentioned she measured them and they appeared to be the same.  Anyway, I tried to research the size and did not find much at all.  It is my understanding (possibly and incorrect understanding) that size XO clothing was created for larger size women in the same manner that size zero was created for smaller size women.  It is very possibly simply a "vanity" size. OK, here is how Fashion Bug explained the size, " The sizes XL and OX are in fact different. An OX provides more room in various areas of the garment such as the body, armholes, sleeve length and shoulders. And a 1X hav

Fashion Goes in Cycles

They say that fashion goes in cycles.  What is in fashion this year will be out of fashion next year. However, clothing that may have been in style ten years ago, can potentially be next season smashing trend.  Due to the the cyclical nature of the apparel industry it is important for designers as well as consumers to monitor past styles as well as currently trending designs.  One way to do this would be to occasionally view old fashion articles in magazines, newspapers, websites, and obviously on blogs such as this one.
