MORE EDITORS TO THE SMALL SCREEN: In Style is delving deeper into television. After landing a cameo on The CW’s “Gossip Girl,” the Time Inc. fashion magazine will partner with Bravo’s “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style” for its second season. Gunn, who is also a mentor to budding designers on “Project Runway,” and co-host Gretta Monahan, owner of Grettacole Spas, Salons and Boutiques, play fairy godparents to the style-challenged looking for a change (Clinton and Stacy, watch your backs). This season, subjects will visit the In Style fashion closet and work with an In Style editor (which will rotate over the eight episodes) to develop their own personal style. The show premieres Oct. 2.
And the magazine could have yet another show in the works. Sources during New York Fashion Week were buzzing that In Style’s Hal Rubenstein will miss fashion weeks in Milan and Paris to work on a television project in Los Angeles, details of which were not revealed.
