'Project Runway' Tim Gunn talks about free fashion event ‘Night At The W'

Posted: Updated:

It's a new year and the godfather of style Tim Gunn is dishing out tips on how to "make-it-work" in 2013.

"Where do we start?" CBS Atlanta's Jennifer Banks asked.

Gunn suggests we take part in the ‘Night At The W' event hosted by Walgreens.

On Jan. 10 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., all Walgreens locations nationwide will host "Night at the W," to celebrate its involvement in the People's Choice Awards.

Beauty advisors will be available to help customers achieve their own "red carpet" looks for free, and customers will also receive a copy of the "Red Carpet Guide to Glamour."

According to a GQ magazine study, Atlanta ranked 17 for the worst-dressed cities in America.

Banks asked Gunn what he thought about Atlanta being on the list.

Gunn's jaw dropped during our interview.

He said he was shocked to hear that because he has been to Atlanta and thinks the style is very chic.

Finally we asked the fashion guru what we should avoid for 2013.

"Whether you are in Atlanta, New York, or even in Paris, don't try too hard," Gunn said. "When people try to hard they look like fashion victims."

Gunn serves as co-host of the eight-time Emmy-nominated Project Runway, a reality-based fashion design incubator.

He also wrote several books like, A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style, and Tim Gunn's Fashion Bible.
