And now for some Gosling.
Ryan Gosling attends ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’ New York Premiere in Gucci.
While we appreciate the intent and the effort, we don’t think even the Gosling can pull off velvet pants. It’s a gorgeous suit, though. We have such a weakness for velvet jackets; not, like, Liberace-style ones or anything; just simple, well-fitted blazers giving that hint of richness. But you couldn’t pay us to wear velvet pants in public. We’re gay, but we’re not THAT gay, for God’s sake.
Not that we’re saying the Gosling is gay. He’s just a pretty man who likes to look pretty and thought that velvet pants would do that for him. And to be fair, they honestly don’t take away from his prettiness. But neither do they flatter him all that much and besides, that’s just too much richness for one outfit.
Also: those shoes look surprisingly cheap. If you’re going to do head-to-toe velvet, we’re thinking a dingy pair of businessman’s shoes is a particularly poor choice.
But we know you’re all going to defend him because he’s the Gosling. Have at it, ladies.
