Ed Westwick walked Philipp Plein’s runway in Milan this weekend, proving once and for all that it’s not just the Gossip Girl ladies who get all the fashion industry love.

Channeling a withering Blue Steel look that even rivals its creator’s (Derek Zoolander, obviously), the Gossip Girl actor opened and closed the designer’s menswear show, marking his first ever turn as a runway star. Westwick also brought more of his model A game to Philipp Plein’s ad campaign, shot by none other than Terry Richardson. In true Terry style, the raunchy campaign featured a lot of hair flipping, lap dances and glass shattering, with Westwick looking impeccably dapper all the while in a tailored Philipp Plein suit.

The German designer has always been tuned in to the world of celebrity — as you might remember, he was one of the first to launch Lindsay Lohan’s “comeback” earlier this year by featuring her in a campaign.
