‘Gossip Girl’ star Ed Westwick becomes face of Philipp Plein (Video)

By Diana Cooper,

British hunk Ed Westwick made his modeling debut this past weekend on the runway in Milan for Philipp Plein’s menswear shows.

Westwick, who is known for playing the wealthy and sophisticated Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl, brought his usual serious face to the catwalk. The only thing different about his look is that he grew a mustache. Fingers crossed he doesn’t grow a beard like co-star Penn Badgley!

The 24-year-old star, who celebrates his birthday tomorrow, also showed off his modeling skills in a video that shows his bad boy persona while getting steamy with a model. Photographer Terry Richardson worked his magic and shot them in different angles and positions. Looks like Westwick got a hot lap dance in the process.

Past famous faces of the German label include Mischa Barton for the Couture 2010 collection and Lindsay Lohan for the Spring 2012 collection.

Westwick’s new role as a model is only the beginning of his upcoming projects. He will star in next year's Romeo and Juliet as the hot-headed Prince of Cats, Tybalt. And, of course, playing Chuck, he will attempt to win his Empire back in Gossip Girl when it returns for its sixth and final season this fall.
