Has there ever been a more fashionable man on television than Ed Westwick as Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl?
Don't answer that; it was a rhetorical question. Throughout six seasons, Chuck Bass has gifted us not only with legendary one-liners ("I'm Chuck Bass" being his signature) but iconic ensembles, full of bold colors (hello purple suits!) and standout accessories (his plaid scarf sold out immediately after he first wore it in season one!).
To celebrate the sixth and final season of the CW hit, we asked Gossip Girl's celebrated costume designer Eric Daman, who is currently working on the network's Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries, to select his 10 favorite Chuck Bass looks ever!
Just like he did with his picks for Serena (Blake Lively), Daman reveals juicy behind-the-scenes info about several of Chuck's looks, including an accessory Westwick chose to add to an ensemble and which outfit was inspired by Jack Nicholson!
Daman also explains the meaning behind certain outfits, many of which have to do with Chuck's relationship with Blair (Leighton Meester), and we think fans of the couple will love the reasoning behind Chuck's wardrobe in the season-two premiere "Summer, Kind of Wonderful".
Gossip Girl airs tonight at 9 p.m. on the CW.
