NEW YORK � August 14, 2008 � Tim Gunn is back to the rescue, diving into women's closets everywhere for the second season of "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style," premiering Thursday, October 2nd at 11 PM ET/PT. Joining Gunn as his new "fashion accomplice" this season is Gretta Monahan, fashion expert, personal stylist and owner of Grettacole Spas, Salons and Boutiques. The series will move to its regular timeslot on Thursday, October 16th at 10 PM ET/PT. Gunn and Monahan won't be making anyone over � with tough love and guidance, they'll help people make themselves over.
"I am absolutely crazy about Gretta and together she and I want every woman to achieve her perfect signature look," said Gunn. "It takes hard work and commitment to look good, but it should also be fun � our hope is that we'll inspire women everywhere to put their best foot forward and with cute shoes, too!"
"For years, I've been styling a range of clients from real women to red carpet celebrities both on and off-camera and in my experience, I have never encountered a show like this, which proves style is not superficial," said Monahan. "'Guide To Style' is about complete transformations from the inside out. It requires hard work, total honesty and 100% commitment from the participants throughout the entire makeover process."
In each episode of "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style," Gunn will use his unmatched counseling skills, to turn the fashion weary into polished and dapper-looking individuals. Monahan will accompany style-challenged women on shopping challenges, while guiding their choices, supporting them and listening to and offering solutions for their concerns. She'll contribute her opinions, share her fashion knowledge, and support Gunn while he focuses on the big picture of each subject's transformation. The series utilizes several tools to help a diverse set of women make themselves over and when building their signature looks, the subjects use Gunn's "essential shopping list," which includes 10 basic pieces that no closet should be without. And armed with Gunn's rules, each makeover subject is encouraged to get a great pair of jeans, a trying task for any woman. After the fashion is taken care of, Gunn calls on his friends and colleagues to put the finishing touches on the women, including hair and make-up.
