I think we can all agree that Ryan Gosling is a handsome man who has mesmerized women of all ages since his turn as the romantic lead in The Notebook, but ladies in the Fashion Spot forums also love Ryan for his dapper sense of style. “I think he's one of few male celebrities worth talking about when it comes to fashion,” wrote LolaSvelt.
For the New York premiere of his new film, Crazy, Stupid, Love, Ryan displayed his unconventional style in a slim Gucci suit. “Yes, the man wore a skinny leg, checkered suit. And I think he actually pulls it off,” wrote ChillChaser. “His taste in suits is so refreshing and fun.”
Forum members freely admitted that the Gucci suit wasn’t for the faint of heart. “He looks great. Only he and Johnny Depp could pull that suit off! I love his red carpet fashion balls! That sounded wrong, but you get my meaning!” littlepaperstars exclaimed. Tanique33 agreed saying, “This man. This man. Seriously? How does he pull off these looks that mere mortals would look daft in? LOVE that he takes a risk and owns each look. I still don't know if I like the suit but I love it on him.”
This clearly isn’t a case of “the clothes make the man,” it’s definitely more, “the man makes the clothes.” Maybe he’s just one of those people who can get away with whatever he’s wearing by virtue of being handsome? Even if he’s wearing something weird, he’s still attractive, so maybe that makes our brains confused. I think I may have to see the suit on someone else before I can decide if I actually like it, but as tanique33 said, I know I like it on him.
