Biography

Sophisticated, silver haired design guru Tim Gunn became an unlikely breakout celebrity at the age of 51 when he debuted as the fashion mentor on Bravo's reality fashion design contest, "Project Runway" (2004- ). The urbane, dryly witty man in black was previously known in academic design circles for his 25-plus years at Parsons The New School for Design in New York, a premier institution for art and design. But it was his presence as the stern but lovable guide to the fashion boot campers on "Project Runway" that turned him into a recognizable personality and a respected tastemaker for the masses. In the wake of Gunn's "Runway" success, he authored A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style and was granted his own spin-off show, "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style" (Bravo, 2007- ).

Bonus Trivia

.

In January 2012, Gunn revealed on his ABC talk show "The Revolution" that he had not been intimate with anyone for 29 years. "I haven't had sex in 29 years. Do I feel like less of a person for it? No. Not even remotely. It's very personal. I was in a very intense relationship for a long time. And my partner ended it, saying that, quite frankly, he was impatient with my sexual performance. I'm a perfectly fulfilled person...but it's very psychological."
