Tuxedo Finale: Nick Verreos "Project Runway: Under The Gunn" Season Finale Fashion Show
For my last "Nick's Look's"/Mentor Style Blog --this post is all about the Season Finale Episode of Lifetime's "Project Runway: Under The Gunn" and what I wore. You can read my take on this final episode HERE. but this blog is all about my style. So many people have commented on how nice I looked so that is why I originally decided to do this. And also to give props to my huney--David Paul--who styled EVERY single outfit. Not out of vanity's sake but as a former working stylist/wardrobe costumer, he just wanted to make sure I wouldn't repeat outfits and be "style shamed". So..let's get to my outfits:

Oscar and Nick: Oscar Garcia-Lopez and Nick Verreos--Meldown Comics and Collectibles store, Hollywood CA--Project Runway: Under The Gunn "Superhero Fashion" Episode
And I also only have one designer, Oscar Garcia-Lopez. For the introduction of this "Supehero Fashion" challenge, we all met up very early in the morning at Meldown Comics and Collectibles store in Hollywood on Sunset Blvd. The reason we were there so early is obvious: the producers wanted to film before the store opened and that early in the morning, curious people walking Sunset Blvd. would not be milling around wondering why Tim Gunn is in the store? (Hello!)
