Penn Badgley Does ‘GQ’ Magazine


Penn Badgley, of Gossip Girl fame, is featured in the pages of the new issue of GQ magazine (the one with the very nekkid, very hawt Jennifer Aniston on the cover) posing in various American style fashions. Here are a few pics from his new GQ photospread:

It’s not just our dashing, thoroughly modern President-elect drawing the world’s attention — it’s our clothes, too. As the next twenty-six pages demonstrate, classic American Style has reinvigorated the world of fashion. And it all starts with actor Penn Badgley and these essential pieces for you to short-list this spring.

I am so happy that Penn is getting his own face time in a major magazine like this. No other Gossip guys are included in this GQ feature and Penn is highlighted in the most photos. Other models in this 26-page spread include actor Jeffrey Wright (Quantum of Solace, W.) and Olympian Ryan Lochte (whose photos are so hawt, I’ll have to post them all by themselves a little later on). After the jump, check out another set of photos of Penn Badgley modeling the essential must-wears for dudes this season …

Yeah, he looks pretty damn good in this spread. While, IMHO, Penn is not the hottest of the Gossip guys, there is something about him that is very appealing. I think he has a brainy hotness that speaks to inner geek-fan. Again, I’m just happy that the lad got his own photospread … he’s not sandwiched between Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick … he’s featured on his own .. and he does a pretty good job, don’t you think?


  • E

    For some reason, he reminds me a lot of Adam Brody.

  • Candice

  • Char

    LOVE him, he is looking H O T in this shoot!!!!!

  • Awww! He’s such a dork! The tennis pic made me laugh!

  • no no no! He is DEFINITELY the hottest Gossip Guy. While Chace Crawford is hot as hell, and Ed Westwick is for sure growing on me..(crying scene last week anyone?) Penn is for sure my fav!

  • Heather

    Love him!!

  • LOVECarrie

    DJ, the tennis balls are because Penn was named after them. (Seriously…) As far as the hottest GG guy, well, I have to give it to him ’cause Chace is just TOOO pretty….Ed? No comments other than he reminds me of Corey Feldman.

  • tiffany

  • ali

    plzz!! post the ryan lochte pics!!

    i cant wait to see them

  • Gaby

    Penn is HOT!!! and I do believe he is hotter than Chace. Ed is kinda growing on me and what makes him hot is his english accent.

  • Lucy

    I’ve always thought he was the hottest of the GG boys with Chase coming in at a close second;)
