Penn Badgley embodies the tall-dark-and-handsome leading man of Hollywood yesteryear. Ever since appearing on our screens four years ago as the brooding Dan Humphrey in Gossip Girl, we knew big things were on the horizon for this dude. And sure enough, it’s true! He’s starring in this fall’s intense drama Margin Call along side Tinseltown bigwigs like Kevin Spacey, Demi Moore and Jeremy Irons, plus he’s been tapped to play iconic musician Jeff Buckley in an upcoming biopic. But on top of having killer acting chops, Penn is also known for his razor-sharp style. Gossip Girl has one of the classiest television wardrobes this side of Mad Men, and naturally some of that steez rubbed off on its star. And today is his 25th birthday! So in honor of his quarter century on this planet, we’d like to take a look back at Penn’s 25 hottest red-carpet styles. Enjoy!
