I have translated this interview from Italian to English. So I apologize in advance for mistakes.
Chuck Bass is a dandy, as a Philipp Plein testimonial your style is more rock, but in reality? How is Ed Westwick’s style?
«Let’s say something in between, I like to change a lot and every once in a while I try to exaggerate. I believe my style is influenced by the things that surround me, the music I listen to, I feel more rock in this period. I’ve also had other jobs in regards of fashion, but this is the first time a collaboration reflects my style completely. It gave my look an energetic spin.»
A fashion advice?
«Try new things, never be ordinary and be brave and if someday you go out with the wrong outfit, nevermind…»
What is never missing in your closet?
«A beautiful leather jacket, I think every man should have one.»
It’s your first time on the runway…
«Exactly, I really hope I won’t fall.»
Did you train?
«For months! I’m kidding, it all came really natural, working with a great designer and with great photographers, every piece of the puzzle went on its place, like during the shooting, it was a crazy experience working in New York with Terry Rihcardson, it was unique.»
I know you are a very dedicated fan…
«Of Chelsea, it’s true, and of England of course. I’m impatiently waiting for Sunday’s match.»
Rooney will play too, after the hair transplant he just did. What do you think, would you do that?
«Why not! You want hair, get the hair back. For now I have enough and I hope they will remain where they are. But if they would ever fall, who knows, why not, exactly.»
On Sunday England will be against Italy in the quarter finals of Euro 2012, will you watch the match in Milan?
«No,I will be already in London. My short trip to Milan, that I have adored, ends here. May the best team win!»
