WERQ: Ryan Gosling in Gucci

Posted on July 20, 2011

Ryan Gosling is determined to make us love him. “Ryan Gosling,” he must have said to himself as he got out of bed, “What can I, Ryan Gosling, do to make two bitchy gay fashion bloggers love me that doesn’t require the trading of sexual favors?”

Ryan Gosling attends the “Crazy, Stupid, Love.’” World Premiere in New York City.

Gucci Spring 2012 Collection

That’ll do.

He is WERQing that shit so hard it’s taking everything we have not to do snaps up and head rolls at the sight of him. You go on, boy! Rest secure in the knowledge that you have earned our love.

He looks amazing. It takes a big man to wear a shiny windowpane plaid suit, you guys.

      I love him! He is such a good actor (Lars and the Real Girl and Blue Valentine). And he looks mighty fine here too. A deserved WERQ!

        Blue Valentine KILLED me. He’s so good! It’s so sad! I have traumatic flashbacks to that movie.

        Also, Half Nelson.

        Also also, he’s hot, love the suit. May even have to see the damn movie now.

          Blue Valentine is one of the best movies ever made, but yes, it does rip you apart!  He is so amazing in it, and it all feels so real.  Great movie, even if I don’t ever want to watch it again!

        Cajones means drawers, the furniture type haha. The one you’re looking for is cojones, and he definitely has those. Looks hot.

      This man only gets better with age. Swoon!

      He should have shaved the neck beard…but I suppose that can be forgiven.

      • http://profiles.google.com/denise.alden Denise Alden

        You know, as I was looking at him, wondering how on earth he looks so fantastic every time I see a photo, I was thinking, “And I usually DETEST neck beard, but . . .”  That dude has got it going on, doesn’t he?

      • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

        It works in this case. Perfectly matches the face, not too scruffy. Adorable.

      WERQ for sure!  And I like the long tie better than the bow tie the model is wearing.

    • Anonymous

      Love.  The suit is fabulous and he is fabulous.  I’m glad he didn’t wear the bow tie.

      So hot.

        Me too. The bowtie would have been too Pee Wee Herman for me.

    • Anonymous

      I like it, but for some reason, it looks like the suit was meant for someone else.  Maybe if he shaved his beard?

    • Judy_J

      I’d give him a 10/10 if it weren’t for the scruffy beard.  The suit fits him to a T, and he looks marvelous in it. 9.5.

       That’s just perfect on him!

    • Gwen Schott

      He looks great, but I don’t know that I’d give him a WERQ. He looks stiff and uncomfortable. He REALLY doesn’t know what to do with his hands.

      • Anonymous

        I thought he looked a bit stiff too, like he doesn’t know what to do with himself. He looks good though.

      • http://twitter.com/asciident Melissa Della

        At least the suit’s far too tight for him to stick his hands in his pockets and ruin the look!

      The man knows how to wear clothes! I’m reminded of TLo’s last Gosling post: http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/2011/05/ryan-gosling-in-salvatore-ferragamo.html

      I’ll give him an IN but not a WERQ

      The suit is fab and fits him properly.  However, he looks stiff and uncomfortable and needs to trim the beard properly.

    • Anonymous

      If only he’d ditched the scrubby beard and neck fuzz.  With the sharp, shininess of the rest of it, his unkempt face and neck are very jarring.  He still doesn’t do it for me, but points for trying a big, bold look. 

    • Anonymous

      I loved him in Lars and the Real Girl. That said, this isn’t WERQing for me at all. First, it’s shiny. Second, it’s tiny. Not a good combo for me. He looks like he’s wearing leggings and a suit jacket he’s grown out of.

      • Anonymous

        Yeah, the pants make me think of Hank Azaria in The Birdcage. “Why joo giving me highwaters?? I like that nice Armani break…”.
        They just look like clamdiggers to me.

      As much as I love him in this suit, I think he’d look better wearing nothing at all.

      He looks great. Smart move to not wear the bow tie like the runway version. WERQ indeed!

      THIS is how a skinny guy wears a close-fitting suit and the scruffy look.  Pay attention, JT.  (Although you will never be as pretty as Ryan.)

      I’ve been rolling my eyes at the preview of Crazy, Stupid, Love every time I’ve been at the theater lately, but that line about him being photoshopped in real life rings so true…

      Hate the fabric with the anger of a burning school bus full of nuns holding kittens but the tailoring is impecable.  Would love a retrospective of his looks.

      He’s got quite a figure, hasn’t he? Bravo for abandoning the bow tie and the shiny shoes (seen on the model). Not a fan of the facial scruff, but I suppose it keeps the whole thing from being camp.

      Cannot gush as much because of the tie. My husband is a tie whore, he loves them and is very particular about the knot and he will tie and retie until he gets it perfect. At first I teased him, but after 10 years of watching him I have become a convert, it really is all about the knot. Now when people are wearing ties I automatically judge the knot like you do hems. And Ryan’s knot sucks, it is too small and askew, and does not have a dimple.  I also would have loved to see a patterned tie, possibly a paisley, with this. Lastly shave the neck.

      Too tight and get rid of the neck hair.

      The suit is great, but I actually don’t like it on him. He’s too bulky and too short – it needs someone long and lean like the model. I could see 10-years-ago-Jude-Law rocking the hell out of this.

      This may be tainted by the fact that while Gosling’s a good actor and objectively attractive, he does nothing for me, since he always comes off in pictures as an insufferable douche.

      • Christine Campbell

        Sorry, just did a spit-take at the pairing of Ryan Gosling as an “insufferable douche” paired with a compliment to Jude freaking Law (even ten years ago).

        Carry on.

        • Anonymous

          Heh, fair enough. They were meant to be two separate thoughts, though. Gosling is the wrong body type for this, Law would be better, full stop. Gosling may, in fact, not be an insufferable douche at all, while Law has pretty much proven himself to be one of the biggest, but Gosling always, *always* looks like he’s above his company when he’s out at these things, while 10-years-ago-Jude-Law was still apparently happily married and *so* pretty.

      Wow. He IS working it. I wouldn’t have pegged him as the guy to rock such a suit, which makes this an even nicer WERQ.

      The suit looks a skosh too tight and the tie looks a bit off-scale. Other than that, he’s WERQ’n it.

      I love it!  Glad he ditched the bow tie and shiny loafers – waaaaaaay to twee. I think he looks a  bit uncomfortable because the suit is extremely fitted and most men aren’t used to that kind of tailoring.  Ozwald Boateng wears and makes a-mazing suits like this and has the grace and posture to carry it off effortlessly.  I imagine it’s like learning to wear a corset.  Eventually you get used to it and can stand, move and sit with perfect posture while looking oh so elegant.

    • Anonymous

      WTF?  Are you two boys drunk or high?  He looks ridiculous in that suit, as just about any man would.  Seriously, that is goofy looking and just plain trying to hard to make a statement that doesn’t need to be made.  I think this is the first time I have seen a photo of him where I said “I wouldn’t f**k that with someone else’s d**k.”

      Ugh, I give up……

      He looks good. But my opinion is worth nothing because when he’s smiling pleasantly I always see him as an inexplicably bearded 8-year-old, (a pretty cute one, when he’s not in trouble) so it’s hard to judge rationally.  As an example, I see him as just an adorable ring bearer at his (rather hip) older sister’s wedding here.

      On first look I went “ugh shoes are scuffed” because they’re not shiny but on closer look I think they might be suede (??) and a calculated style decision to pair the matte shoes with the shiny suit. Bravo Mr Gosling.

      Really?  A too-tight, shiny plaid suit and a neck beard get a WERQ?  I love you guys, but he gets no WERQ from me!

      • margaret meyers

        everything you say makes perfect sense… and yet he’s taken on an out-there look and I think he carries it off.  Gosling is not particularly handsome or well built, but he wears clothes well.

        the neck beard is skeevy.

      I think if his hair didn’t look so greasy he’d get a 10 out of 10 from me. Otherwise the boy looks HAWT!

      Gawd, he looks so dang good in that suit, I’m loving his sense of style. I never thought much of him one way or the other but recently he’s making me take notice. 

      Minor quibble on the fit. Maybe just a tad too tight?
