For the whole week, MTV Style is bringin’ you nothing but mega-awesome-super-must-have-everything-you-need-to-know-before-going-to Prom coverage. But you know what? We can’t forget about the boys! Each day we’re picking a hot dude with SERIOUS jealousy-inducing “I wish he was MY prom date” style and at the end of the week, we’ll pick our prom king! Who shall be crowned the ultimate prom style icon? Check back on Friday to find out!
The more we discover about Ethan Peck, the more we adore him. You miiiggght recognize this hottie from ABC Family’s “10 Things I Hate About You” TV show, where he plays Heath Ledger’s bad boy role Patrick Verona OR as the love interest in the Olsen twins’ movie Passport to Paris (he goes WAYYY back). But the most recognizable part about Ethan might be in his face—he is the grandson of legendary actor Gregory Peck! Whew, those are some TOUGH shoes to fill, but we think he’s handling it quite well.
These days Ethan working on a potentially reoccurring role on “Gossip Girl” and is totally killin’ it stylewise at amazing events as pictured RIGHT HERE. Just last week, he wore a shiny gray tuxedo with black accents, two-tone patent leather shoes, and a DIY bow tie (we can tell because it’s crooked, AND WE LOVE THAT). When it comes to personal style, Ethan admits to usually wearing all black (in New Yawk that’s normal, honey) and even worked retail at Diesel and American Apparel. He also said he doesn’t “know much about fashion,” but we SERIOUSLY beg to differ. It’s sort of winsome that a guy with THAT kind of jawline and effortlessly dreamy hair is so humble, so we’re officially on-board the Ethan train. Also, wouldn’t a guy this sweet make the BEST prom date? He’s high fashion, but not SO high fashion that he’d upstage you, er, his lovely date. What do you think? Is he prom king material?
