Reality shows live and die on the personalities of their hosts. While The Apprentice has been adding celebrities to try and off-set Donald Trump's ineptitude, while Jeff Probst made himself so inseparable from the Survivorbrand that even Mark Burnett spent the money to re-sign him in 2005 when he could have hired an ex-contestant for much cheaper. Similarly, what do you think would happen to Idol's ratings if Simon Cowell took his schtick elsewhere?
Tim Gunn is another one of those invaluable personalities. After rocketing "Project Runway" into the stratosphere, Gunn turned his own show, "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style" into a runaway hit--not an easy task; just ask any former Seinfeld cast member.
Today's your chance to meet the man, the myth, the classy legend when Gunn appears live and in person at the kate spade store in the Aventura Mall, where he'll give tips on personal style and talk about how accessories change everything. Don't they ever!
As Tim would say, "Make it happen."
