Washington Life put Tim Gunn in the hot seat, asking for his thoughts on D.C. fashion, and the Project Runway host had nothing but praise for the first family. He said Barack and Michelle "follow my prescription for how to get your fashion right, and that is that silhouette, proportion and fit are the keys. And they know what they look good in and they know what clothes fit well." He even called Michelle a great role model and mentor.

See Tim talk about the Washington uniform ("I find that people wear clothes that are a little too big for them here") the Kennedys, trends, up-and-coming designers and the diplomacy of American fashion.
