Hamish Bowles on Gossip Girl

Following Jeremy Scott’s designer turn in a Dynasty-worthy matador jacket on The Young and the Restless this week, it seems a few other fashionistas will be getting close-ups of their own. Milliner Stephen Jones, who’s creating hats for Madonna’s upcoming Wallis Simpson biopic, W.E., will also star in the film. “It’s too early for me to really tell you anything in detail,” he told Vogue UK. Perhaps remembering Madge’s stormy cinematic past (Swept Away, anyone?), he then added, “But really I think I’m more alarmed than anything.” Vogue’s Hamish Bowles, meanwhile, will likely have less to worry about when he makes a cameo on Gossip Girl this September. Fittingly, art will imitate life when Bowles plays himself, prepping for Fashion’s Night Out. It’s a pity that fellow CW swan André Leon Talley has yet to do a GG guest spot. Should Little J come back to wreak more havoc, the inside of one of ALT’s capes would make the perfect hiding spot.
