Gossip Girl is blessed with some dashing male talent: Penn Badgley as Dan, the scruffy Brooklynite; Chace Crawford as Nate, the well-intentioned trust fund kid; and Ed Westwick as Chuck Bass, the legendary UES pit viper with a wardrobe of seersucker suits and bow ties.
So who’d GQ Magazine name to their “30 Under 30: Most Stylish Young Men in Hollywood” list? All of them! Just like Blair Waldorf, GQ couldn’t quite pick a favorite.
GQ is puzzled by Ed Westwick’s casual off-screen style paired with his dapper onscreen Chuck Bass swagger. The mag says Ed’s duality is “head-scratching but somehow natural. He just keeps us looking.” They forgot to mention the hotness variable known as The British Accent.
Dan Humphrey’s Brooklyn beginnings have sure rubbed off on this curly-coiffed actor. Penn’s closet seemingly houses a litany of plaid and newsboy caps — a nod to his Seattle roots? GQ says Penn’s style is one of “classic sleaze,” like he “might light up a smoke and throw you a backhanded compliment before stealing your girlfriend.”
GQ applauds Chace’s “years of epitomizing Manhattan WASP-iness on Gossip Girl,” adding that the blue-eyed heartthrob has honed his off-screen style to match Nate’s grown-up trajectory. But Chace’s Most Stylish nod ends with backhanded burn only the likes of Blair Waldorf could deliver: “His wilder touches (like this knit-tie-and-tux combo) aren't exactly the most rule-shattering, but experimentation just seems so... new money, no?”
