I Told Tim Gunn My Shoes Are From Old Navy

Yesterday I spent my afternoon at the NBC Universal Experience. It was AMAZING. I did over 25 interviews for you folks, with everyone from Christian Slater to Molly Shannon to Donald Trump, and oh yeah, the cast of Heroes, plus many others!

Stay tuned for more scoop on my convos with the stars throughout the week.

But, in the meantime, I have to explain the headline of this entry.

You see, I have an obsession with Old Navy shoes. I knew I'd be standing for hours at the NBC red carpet, so without thinking twice, I threw on my Old Navy flats. No heels for the red carpet! What I didn't realize was that I would be interviewing Tim Gunn of Project Runway and Tim Gunn's Guide to Style.

Well, when my buddy at TV Guide asked Tim what the "it" accessory is for summer, he started to say:

"Summer is a time to be relaxed, to not take yourself too seriously. Have a wonderful ballet flat that you love. It could be metallic. It could be some crazy wonderful stripe. It could be embellished with something..." and then he looked down at our shoes and noticed we were both wearing flats.

And he said our shoes were cute!!!

So what did I do? No, I didn't just say thank you. I told him they were Old Navy shoes. Not many people would admit the brand of their shoes to a fashion guru unless it was Prada or Gucci or something crazy expensive. But, Tim Gunn, bless his heart, said, "You don't have to spend a lot of money for fashion!"

So today, here I am back in the office, sporting another pair of my Old Navy flats, with great pride. Because, hey, Tim Gunn approved!
