"Gunn's Golden Rules" by Tim Gunn

Tim Gunn is well known in the fashion world for his no-nonsense mentorship to young designers on Project Runway as well as his honest and spot on fashion advice in many arenas. Now he is dishing out advice on everything life in his book Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Lessons For Making It Work.

In addition to advice like "the world owes you…nothing," "never underestimate karma," and "be a good guest or stay home," Gunn dishes on the designers of Project Runway, shares stories of his personal life and calls out the behaviour of some of fashions biggest divas!

I am a big fan of Tim Gunn's. I'm big on manners and I enjoy seeing people handle themselves with poise and class, qualities I often feel are missing these days (and I do admit to my own slip-ups from time to time!) I definitely did not need the audiobook for this one because the entire time I was reading the book, I heard it in Gunn's voice in my head.

This is a quick read but there is tons of great advice. Gunn isn't afraid to point out peoples bad behaviour, he admits to his own, and has tons of real life examples to back up everything he is saying. The stories he has of the famous personal offenders are delightfully dishy, though I did find myself wondering just how "proper" it was to be spreading the gossip! But he does it anyway, and it's very enjoyable!


  1. I am a fan of both Project Runway and Tim Gunn so this certainly appeals and will be worth looking out for, if it ever makes its way to Europe.

  2. I love Project Runway. And I definitely wouldn't need the audiobook to hear him reading it either.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. Oh, this one looks like fun. I love reading celebrity books (although most of them aren't actually written by the celebrities). I like reading their little anecdotes.
