Visual Studio.NET and Windows Forms produce the most
robust user interface. Web Forms (ASP.NET) produce the
next best user interface.

You can also enrich the GUI in your WinForm app with additional controls.
See here for some examples -

This would be called "skinning", if I understand you right.

I don't know about skinning GUIs with .NET, but perhaps you could
include this keyword in your Google search query.

I did a quick Google myself and found this:

create bitmaps, apply them on a form, override paint method(s) and cut
regions
