A little while back Tim Gunn told Time he loves Michelle Obama's style but is far less enthused with Cindy McCain's. (His exact words were, "Cindy McCain looks like someone has twisted her ponytail into a knot and tried to give her a face-lift.") So when we bumped into him at Tide and Downey's "Total Care" event last night, we just had to ask him to elaborate. Tim still thinks Michelle has Cindy beat style-wise, hands down. "There is no contest!! I mean, Michelle really epitomizes American style, and she's not afraid to show her shape, she's not afraid to show her sexiness without being the least bit inappropriate," Tim said. "She's just an alluring woman. And Cindy with her suits and she's all buttoned up, she's just soooo — she just looks like she's duct-taped! There is just something about her, and in a way it's a metaphor about who she is!" Does he think she's heeded his advice about wearing her hair a little less taut? That's the least of her problems! "I'm just not a fan. I don't know who her advisers are, but it's the whole look — her clothes have to be fixed too." He continued, "I just don't think she's capable of improving the look. It's an inaccessibility in the way [Cindy] presents herself to the world, whereas Michelle has an accessibility. You would feel comfortable just going up to her and saying something like, 'How are you?' And with Cindy you have to be careful you’re not speared!"
