At last night's From Scotland With Love's annual Dressed to Kilt celebrity charity fashion show, I ran into the amazing Eric Daman—former male supermodel (no, seriously, he's starred in Calvin Klein campaigns alongside Kate Moss and has appeared on the cover of L'Uomo Vogue) and costume designer for Gossip Girl and The Carrie Diaries.
Here he is with the cast of Gossip Girl, who he dressed for years!

Anyway, apropo of the occasion, Daman was wearing a kilt—and he paired it with a pleated tuxedo shirt, camouflage jacket, and a jaunty scarf. When I asked him if he had already been a kilt-owner or whether he had to procure one specially for the event, he confessed that the kilt was actually from the set of Gossip Girl—it was what the waiters wore in the episode where Blair Waldorf launched her clothing collection at Barneys! AND to top off his outfit, his jaunty scarf is THE Chuck Bass scarf.

Is Eric Daman's Gossip Girl IRL outfit the best TV-referential look ever? I think so.
