Gossip Girl Stylist Eric Daman Is Happy to Take ‘Straight Men’s Fashion to a Strange, Dangerous Place’

Eric Daman and Ed Westwick.

Gossip Girl stylist Eric Daman on defining the cast's style: "I've helped them become fashion icons and they've helped me become who I am and it's a great give-and-take," he told us at the You Know You Want It book party at Henri Bendel this week. "It's nice to be able to take men's fashion to a whole new place. With girls' fashions, you can always have fun and play with it, but taking straight men's fashion to this strange, dangerous place with very handsome, rich men drinking bourbon and wearing pink ascots — that's a very big movement for American men's fashion."
