Teen heartthrob and “Gossip Girl” star Chace Crawford is only too aware of the shoes he’ll have to fill in the upcoming remake of “Footloose,” the film classic that helped launch Kevin Bacon’s career.

“It’s a big role,” Crawford said at the Emporio Armani show on Tuesday. “But I think I’ve got what it takes to pull it off.”

Filming starts in March.

Meanwhile, Vittorio Brumotti illustrated why he’s bike trial world champion, riding down the bleachers on to the runway to perform a medley of dazzling tricks to kick off the show.

“It was half my idea, half Armani’s,” said the 29-year-old Italian, who will soon be in the U.S. for yet another Guinness World Record attempt and to shoot an ad campaign for his sponsor, Sector No Limits watches.
