“Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style” will be back on television later this year, but the show will go on without Veronica Webb.  His new accomplice will be Gretta Monahan, fashion expert, personal stylist and owner of Grettacole Spas, Salons and Boutiques in Boston, according to Bravo.

“I’ve been a fan of Gretta’s for awhile now – she’s on the edge of fashion with a fresh approach that resonates well with all types of women,” said Gunn. “I’m thrilled to have her as my fashion accomplice.”

I’m unfamiliar with Gretta, but I’m hoping she comes across better than Veronica, who always made me feel uncomfortable.  No doubt she was a great runway model, but on the show she never seemed to develop a rapport with the women she was supposed to be helping.

And the underwear drawer segment?  It won’t be coming back either. It was humiliating.  Even Tim Gunn has said so many times.

Gretta Monahan’s influence as a trendsetter began in Boston with the debut of Grettacole, a salon and spa that gained popularity due to its exceptional service and hip, fun environment.  She launched more beauty hubs and a fashion boutique Gretta Luxe, as well as Grettastyle Studio in New York City.

She has contributed to the “Today Show,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “The View;”  both her beauty and fashion advice has been featured in W Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Elle and Marie Claire.
