Creating metro style winform in windows 7 using C#

Is it possible to design a metro styled winform in visual studio 10 or visual studio 11 on windows 7? If so, where can I find info on how to do it? I have already found some links, like

But I don't get the Windows Metro style.

Can anyone help me with this?

Answer

The strict Metro UI apps are Windows 8 only, and they require WinRT.

But if you want to simulate the Metro style in Windows 7 and Windows Forms, you can use third party controls (or develop your own), such as the Telerik ones,
