What’s the worst fashion trend you’ve ever seen? Time magazine recently asked this question of the enduringly decanal Tim Gunn, now mentoring a fresh crop of designers on the fifth season of Project Runway. Gunn’s pick of sartorial tragedies? The embrace of rubbery shoes fit for an ungulate.

Of course, this bit of wisdom sounds even better when Gunn says it. Watch Time‘s video of the interview here.
