We all have goals. When I first moved to New York City early last year, one of my major personal goals involved tracking down and subsequently making out with Gossip Girl‘s Ed Westwick. Totally rational, right? A year and a half later, I’ve managed to share exactly one magical evening with my fair Chuck Bass, and by share an evening, I mean share the same air in a bar.
So until my goal is achieved (which seems more and more unlikely since, when GG ends this fall, the whole cast will probably leave the east coast), I’ll just have to settle for this totally unnecessary–yet at the same time so necessary–footage of my dreamy dandy looking extremely hot and bothered with another much luckier lady while Terry Richardson snaps away for a Philipp Plein campaign.
Plein is obviously a smart man who knows how to pick his campaign stars: You might remember him as the German designer who kicked off Lindsay Lohan’s ‘2012 comeback‘. But enough about him. This video is enough to make any law student or accountant leave her trained profession for a career in fashion. It’s everything a fashion film should be: Two minutes of obligatory hair flips, unexplained glass-breaking, stilted lap dances, and well tailored suits with pocket squares, all set to the soft-core soundtrack of a low-budget porno. As if you needed any more convincing, here’s what some smart YouTube commenters have been saying so far:
“EDWARD NEEDS TO STOP FLAUNTING HIS HOTNESS AROUND LIKE THIS. IT’S UNFAIR.”
“OMG Ed. Why so sexy?”
“The definition of sexy that model is so luckyy she lived the dream being so close to Ed. Ahhh Ed why r u so perfect sigh’ i wish he was mine :(((((“
I swear, I didn’t write that last one. But Ed, if you’re reading this… Call me, maybe? Or just email. That would be fine, too.
And now, for your viewing pleasure…
