Dressed To Kilt 2011

Kiefer Sutherland, Chris Noth, Kellie Pickler And Markus Schenkenberg Model Tartan, Tweed And Cowboy Chic

Hot Scots mingled with some of Nashville's elite at this year's "Dressed to Kilt," the annual Scottish-tinged fashion show and charity fundraiser, held Tuesday night at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom. In keeping with this year's "country chic" theme, the event's featured designers -- which included Vivienne Westwood along with a bevy of up-and-coming European talents -- lent many of their Caledonian-inspired designs a down-home Texas flair. And while tartan and tweed might seem questionable when paired with a ten-gallon hat and cowboy boots, organizers and attendees alike were quick to draw attention to country music's early connection to the Scottish Highlands. The event drew more than a few high-profile, and occasionally eyebrow-raising, participants -- among them Danny Ware and Ahmad Bradshaw of the New York Giants, both of whom looked surprisingly natural in kilts, as well as country artist Gary Allan and "Gossip Girl" actor Matthew Settle, who teased the judges with a flash of leg before strutting down the catwalk. Donald Trump and wife Melania, neither of whom donned plaid, caused the biggest commotion on the red carpet before breezing by reporters and being quickly ushered to their seats.
