Tim Gunn's Guide To Style Premieres Thursday Night at 11:00

I was thrilled to receive a "screener" of the first episode of season two of Tim Gunn's Guide to Style and I am happy to say that there are many improvements.

The biggest change is the new co-host and fashion accomplice, Gretta Monahan. She is adorable. She has a beautiful smile and dimples and she feels like a friend. Gretta has several wardrobe changes during the first episode and she looks fabulous in every scene.

Right off the bat you will notice that there is no staged "Surprise, Tim Gunn is coming to your house!" phone call.

No pawing through the underwear drawer....

and no sorting the contents of the closet into four piles...

But they have kept the things that make the show unique and special. The Optitex is still helping the makeover subject to visualize her shape and how certain styles and silhouettes look on her.

They are still stressing the importance of the right undergarments.

Of course, my favorite part of every episode is when they visit the designer showrooms. Only Tim Gunn could provide this kind of access. In this episode, they visit Gilles Mendel and he is completely charming and very generous.

The makeover subject in this episode, Meredith, is especially endearing. She is intelligent and appreciative and seems to be really paying attention to Tim and Gretta. Her transformation is remarkable.

Check out these previews and tune in to Tim Gunn's Guide to Style on Thursday night!
