Penn Badgley Gives His Take on Fall Fashion To Cosmopolitan

10/20/2009 at 04:33 PM ET

Starring in television’s most fashionable show –and dating stylish co-star Blake Lively — has taught Penn Badgley a thing or two about fashion. And now, the Gossip Girl heartthrob is sharing his thoughts on fall’s hottest looks with “What a woman wears says a whole lot about her confidence,” Penn tells Cosmo in a sultry fashion spread. Penn includes sweater dresses and V-necks amongst his favorite items to see on any woman. “A sweaterdress really can be the sexiest thing. As a man, I just like the simpler things,” says Penn. “A plunging V-neck looks like she pulled it off the floor of a man’s bedroom. There’s something so sensual about it.” Penn is even a fan of fall’s hottest shoes, the over-the-knee boot. “If a strong, secure girl wears thigh-high boots, it can be stunning and powerful.” Hear more from Penn on fall fashion at

@fancypants and @emma wilson

thanks for defending me, because that’s exactly what i meant. although i meant to write “did” not “didn’t.”

i think it’s ironic that people criticized me for not reading it when clearly they didn’t understand the blog post itself or at least offer an alternative explanation for it like @mel.

yes, i got that it was HIS take on women’s fashion and like both fancypants and emma wilson said, if a woman takes the plunging v-neck off of a man’s floor, then he’s inferring that it’s the man’s shirt. similar to how a girl will wear a guy’s button-down shirt in place of pajamas. i even checked the site to see if the picture accompanying it was a barely buttoned button down shirt to go along with the plunging v-neck line, but it was a dress that kind of looked like a long poncho.

i’m not hating on penn, i think his little gap is cute! i just think it was a weird way to phrase things, and maybe it wasn’t quoted properly.

You guys are all idiots. Usually mens shirts tend to be bigger on females therefore creating the plunging neckline – not because it was a plunging neckline on them to begin with. Sheesh.

Happy, happy female model…

He DID mean that it looks like they took a guys sweater off of the floor and put it on. Jeez. It would be plunging because a guys sweater would be big on a woman. You guys are taking this way too seriously anyway.

I enjoyed The Stepfather- this was just as a great as the first. Dylan Walsh did a great job filling the shoes of Terry O’Quinn
