"I just want to come in there, and I want to make you feel good. I want to make you feel inspired. I want people my age, especially women, to feel like you know what, I can do this, it's not over, I'm ready to try it because Sherri did it," she said.

The show follows 10 designers from around the world who compete to become the next global brand. "Fashion is global today, and it will continue to be. If anything, it will continue to be more global, and we're very honored and thrilled that 'Making the Cut' is a part of that and even a kind of catalyst for it," Gunn told Cheddar News.
Chatting with Bobbi Brown
Makeup artist Bobbi Brown joined Cheddar News' Between Bells to talk about the new season of her podcast The Important Things.

"I never thought my TikTok was going to blow up the way it has, and I think people are really just ready for simple information, for quick things, for authenticity, and truth, and not a lot of blah blah blah talking but more takeaway things," Brown said when asked why her show continues to be successful in a crowded podcast space.
