You know how they say an accessory can make or break you? Well, for Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick, that accessory might be the name: He’s Chuck Bass. Well, he was anyway. Since the show wrapped shooting after six seasons, the actors have felt free to look more like themselves than the characters they’ve become famous for portraying.

Although he’s never without a bow tie, pocket square, and perfectly groomed hair on set, Ed looked a little scruffy at the Fun Size premiere on October 25. Even though he’s still sporting the signature breastcessory, Ed showed off the chest hair usually covered by his tie. Hold the phone, though. Um, is he wearing a chain?

So, what do you think — is his appeal all in the name (and what goes along with it), or is the Bass-less Ed the sexier suit-er?
