First look - Chace Crawford

Even if the words "Gossip" and "Girl" mean little more to you than "Beverly", "Hills" and "90210" or "One", "Tree" and "Hill", you (or at least your girlfriend) will doubtless be aware of the hit American show's unashamedly good-looking leading man, Chace Crawford. We catch up with Chace in our August issue, out now. But by way of a teaser, here's what Chace had to say on a few of our favourite subjects...

Leading the high life
"I usually stay at the Dorchester, or the Soho Hotel and my favourite place to eat is The Punch Bowl in Mayfair. Oh, and there's somewhere called the Troubadour. I saw the Killers do a jam session there. It was hot sweaty and brilliant."

Being chased by beautiful women
"I met a friend of my sister's at Mahiki for a drink and as we were leaving these other girls just followed us into the taxi uninvited. It was kind of awkward, with the photographers and everything there, to chuck them out and so we drove round the corner and then politely asked them to leave."

Esquire being his favourite magazine
"Because of the success of the show, I've paid more attention to the way I dress and I have developed my sense of style. And Esquire has helped me with that."

For the full shoot and interview with Chace see the August issue of Esquire. Out now.
