    Had to share this, which accompanies a brief interview with him in OK magazine:

    Wow... don't know what else there is to say but... wow...

    It sure takes a confident man to pull of a pic like that.

    In the interview, he says he hasn't been on a date in 26 years (!), and actually prefers being alone.

    That's a pity, because that's a pretty fine bod for a man in his 50s (or any age for that matter).

    I agree! What a pitty I've only seen him on PR but he seems like a pretty nice/ cool guy. For some reason I can't imagine him as much of a loner.

    a BRIEF interview . . . . that's very punny!


    Agree that Tim would made a fine significant other for someone, although I wouldn't want to play Scrabble with the man!!!

    Here's a new one...Tim Gunn is going to be a comic book hero!

    Dressed for Action

    By GEORGE GENE GUSTINES
    Published: May 20, 2009


    Ready to Save the Day: Tim Gunn (and Iron Man) in a version of the first cover of “Models Inc.”


    THE heroes of Marvel Entertainment have foiled everything from bank robberies to alien invasions — usually with their fists. But when a young set designer is murdered during New York Fashion Week, solving the crime falls to more delicate hands.

    On Aug. 26, Marvel will release the first issue of “Models Inc.,” a sartorially minded mini-series that unites some of its fashion-friendly supporting characters and pushes them into new starring roles.

    The runway divas include Millicent Collins (a k a Millie the Model), Patsy Walker, also known as the superheroine Hellcat, and Mary Jane, the model-turned actress who is the sometimes wife of Peter Parker, the Amazing Spider-Man.

    The women team up to clear Millicent, who is the prime suspect in the murder of the set designer. Think of it as “Charlie’s Angels” set in the fashion world.

    But what would the angels be without someone to guide them? Enter Tim Gunn of “Project Runway.” In the debut issue’s second story, Mr. Gunn becomes an action figure — jumping into Iron Man’s suit of armor to save a fashion exhibition from evildoers.

    It’s certainly a departure from Mr. Gunn’s usual role as a mentor to aspiring designers, but there is a connection. Mr. Gunn said he remembered comic books with Millicent, who first appeared in 1945. She was a comic romantic figure, who worked as a model for the Hanover agency.

    Mr. Gunn will grace one version of the first cover of “Models Inc.,” drawn by Phil Jimenez, a popular comic book artist who also illustrated the cover of “Amazing Spider-Man” No. 583, which paired Spidey with President Obama. A sales analysis on the Beat, the comic blog of Publishers Weekly, estimated that more than 520,000 copies of the issue were sold.

    Can Mr. Gunn persuade fashionistas that these comic books are as valuable as the September issue of Vogue?

    Mr. Gunn doesn’t claim to know, but he is as surprised as your average Hulk reader that he is now a Marvel action figure.

    “I’m not certain of the particulars of how I’ll be portrayed, but I’m really excited about it,” Mr. Gunn said. “To say I’m a character in a comic book is wild!”
    POW! BIFF! BAM! MAKE IT WORK!

    All kinds of people were quoted speaking highly of Tim but my favorite quote was from Steve Rosengard--last season.

    "Why is Tim so universally appealing? I would say it comes down to three things. He's clearly intelligent, but without being a bore. He can laugh at himself and at others without a trace of malice. Above all, he's unpretentious, which in fashion is like finding a piece of the Queen's jewelry without a diamond in it."
    He's simply a lovely man & it shows in everything he says & does. You can imagine what a great friend he would be.
