Men in Kilts! Bottoms up! Chris Noth and Kiefer Sutherland are 'Dressed To Kilt' as they walk - and flash - the catwalk at charity event

By Georgina Littlejohn for Daily Mail

If you've ever wondered if a man really does go commando under his kilt, then look no further.

Because Chris Noth was happy to clear up the burning question last night as he lifted up his tartan skirt at a charity event in New York last night.

The Sex and the City star flashed his bottom on the catwalk for the Dressed To Kilt charity fashion event.

The 54-year-old was joined on the runaway by fellow actors Kiefer Sutherland, 44, Brian Cox, 64, Jason Patric and Jim Gaffigan, both 44, who also decided to flip their kilts up for the audience.

All five are currently starring together in the Broadway revival of That Championship Season, a 1972 play written by Jason Miller, Patric's father.

All five wore kilts even though Cox is the only true Scotsman, having been born in Dundee, although Sutherland has Scottish ancestry through both his parents.

The Dressed To Kilt event is now in its eighth year and has featured famous Scots walk the catwalk alongside professional models to show off cutting-edge tartan designs and clothing.

All proceeds went to the Wounded Warrior Project, the Paralyzed Veterans of America and the Erskine Hospital in Scotland

Also attending the bash was Glasgow-born comedian Billy Connolly, who did a Bruce Forsyth-inspired pose as he came out onto the catwalk.

Also on the guest list was billionaire and business magnate Donald Trump, who was accompanied by his wife Melania.

However, organisers of the show, which took place at the Hammerstein Ballroom, were left disappointed when their host, Sir Sean Connery pulled out at the last minute.

The veteran actor backed out at the 11th hour and said he was staying at his home in the Bahamas to play golf.
A source said: 'Just earlier this week we had no doubt Sir Sean would be coming in his capacity as our honorary chairman.

' We got a call to tell us Sir Sean isn''t coming. Apparently, he's on the golf course.

'He's made no secret of his passion for Dressed to Kilt over the years and his name was definitely on the guest-list. It's all a bit odd

'He was expected, but obviously something has happened to change this, which is a real disappointment. It's a bit of a shock and, to be honest, strange that the guest list would be changing so late in the day.'

His last-minute cancellation prompted fears for the 80-year-old's health, but, according to the Scotsmand, his publicist, Nancy Seltzer said he was ok.

She was quoted as saying: 'I've left word for Sean, who is on the golf course. He told me he wasn't attending and had retired from public appearances. I will ask him again, but he's feeling fine.'
