I have a secret to share with you... I have a bit of a crush on Gossip Girl's Chuck Bass a.k.a Ed Westwick. He isn't too good-looking like Nate, or too... well, good like Dan, so it must be because he is bad. Hey, I wouldn't be the first girl in history.

Nevertheless it's his geek-chic/preppy style that really makes me smile. Only someone like Chuck could get away with such colourful threads, even if yes, the bow ties are a bit much sometimes. That's why when I saw this picture of him filming in the Hamptons, I had to take a second glance... I had seen those argyle socks somewhere before. Then it hit me - is Chuck Bass the new Carrie Bradshaw?
