  1. Guide to Style is smart, fun and instructive, emphasizing enlightenment over shame and choice over following orders.
  2. Basically it’s a knock-off of TLC’s "What Not to Wear." But the Bravo version is watchable, mostly thanks to its host.

    If the slightly less relaxed Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style doesn’t quite have "What Not to Wear’s" tone of cheeky camaraderie, well, never mind. It has Gunn’s "make it work" philosophy at its heart, and it has his spirit of compassionate, caring honesty.
  4. Gunn is best when showing us what he knows, reacting critically to the thing in front of him rather than speaking lines meant to jog the narrative or jack up the drama.
  5. 60
    For the most part, the show is content to be another study in the effects of fashion on self-esteem.
  6. 50
    Gunn is fine in limited doses. I like him better as a design guru than the closet king.

    Guide to Style is too glazed and slick for its own good, too clinical and forensic to be any fun.
