Chace Crawford for Versace?
Rumours are swirling that Gossip Girl star, Chace Crawford will be the new face of Versace. The 23-year-old is said to be close to signing a deal to replace Patrick Dempsey from Grey's Anatomy, who's contract will be ending in 2009.
The Italian fashion house has released a statement noting that Chace has worn clothes from the company to three big recent events: Fashion Rocks, the MTV VMAs, and at his Gossip Girl co-star Blake Lively's 21st birthday party.
In response to this rumour a spokesperson from Versace has said, "We have been working hard to develop our relationship with Chace - and that is all we can say on the subject. Patrick Dempsey is contracted with us through to Spring/Summer 2009. It is undetermined who will replace him at this time."
