Project Runway's Tim Gunn Talks Spring Must-Haves + A Fab Giveaway.

Update: This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered and congratulations to winner Shannon Lee!

Spring is in the air and we can't contain our excitement which is highly obvious from the multiple stories featuring spring style and beauty tips that we have posted recently. And to top it off, we had the most amazing weekend with the incredible Tim Gunn in NYC.

If you are one of the Tim Gunn's fans whose been impatiently waiting for more, since we shared our first few snaps on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. You will be happy to hear that the wait is over! Today is the day that you get the inside scoop on our rendezvous with the infamous Tim Gunn from 'Project Runway' and spinoff TV show 'Under The Gunn'.

We are still reeling over having the opportunity to meet with him to talk all things beauty, including his own personal skin care regimen and tips on must-have beauty products to look fabulous this spring. Read on to see what he shared, more great photos we snapped during the event and to enter our fabulous spring beauty giveaway!

We will start off by answering the questions we're sure are going through your minds right now.

In The Interview Chair With Tim Gunn

What He's Like:
Incredibly sweet! No aloof or stuck up celebrity here. He is easy talk to, very welcoming and friendly and the eternal gentleman. He even  helped our fellow fashion and beauty bloggers with their jackets. Thanks to Tim Gunn we can proclaim that chivalry is not dead!

His Sense Of Style:
Nothing less than you would expect from an infamous fashion consultant who was the chair for fashion and design at Parsons and who advised up and coming designers on the TV show Project Runway alongside host supermodel Heidi Klum.

Tim's sense of style is what we refer to as suave but modern, he wore a perfectly tailored, slim-fit blue and white vertical stripes suit and a white dress shirt with miniature box prints underneath. His bold red, white and blue asymmetrical striped tie added a pop of color and pizazz to his look.

What He Considers His Greatest Achievement In The Fashion Industry:
We expected Tim to talk about his TV success or even his success as an author with several books under his belt but his humility surprised us once again. He said "Without question, re-positioning the fashion curriculum at Parsons {from 2000-2007} when I was chair there. It was the most difficult and daunting thing I've had to do and it's what I'm proudest of." He is clearly no stranger to hard work or challenging ones-self, take note aspiring fashion designers and consultants!

On What He Would Do Differently:
"I have to tell you not a thing and that's because everything that we do, everything that happens to us, that we cause to happen, makes us who we are. So if I were to change anything I wouldn't be sitting here with all of you." Now that's worth quoting!

His Skin Care Regimen:
Tim Gunn swears by skin creams, in fact he refers to himself as "a skin cream junky." He pointed out Olay's Pro-X Anti-Aging Starter Protocol beautifully displayed in the aisle at Walgreens as the skin cream that he uses on a daily basis.

It includes an Age Repair Lotion with SPF 30, an Eye Restoration Complex and a Wrinkle Smoothing Cream. He referred to it as "fabulous" and said "I can't imagine anyone not being happy with this product" and he wittily mentioned that it comes with a money back guarantee.

As the new brand ambassador for P&G (Procter and Gamble) Tim Gunn not only uses but is passionate about and truly believes in their products. He pointed out that "there are more PHD's at P&G than all the other Ivy league colleges combined." We can't think of a better reason to trust the science behind their products and brands.
