Rogues Gallery: Ryan Gosling20:19:00
In my Rogues Gallery articles , I'll be featuring men who inspire me, who push the boundaries, who have become style icons
The first feature is the current Hollywood golden boy Ryan Gosling.
From Mouseketeer to Young Hercules, Ryan's earlier career was a mixed bag. His recent successes with Drive, The Ides of March, Lars & the Real Girl and his latest effort Only God Forgives have cemented his status as the casting director's obvious choice to play the outsider or dangerous loner. It's also shown us just how well the boy can dress.
Granted Gosling's looks & physique helps in carrying any look but he is adventurous and playful with his wardrobe. If he has a stylist, their work is exceptional, but I like to think he has input in the selection. Even his casual clothes are obviously considered, yet worn with nonchalant confidence.

I love the colour pop of his red socks

I don't think he could get any more appropriate for the Riviera
|Casual does not mean sloppy.|
|A great mix of fabric and textures.|
The driving gloves are the perfect finishing touch.

Unless you are a mega star, don't wear your shades indoors

Only Mr Gosling could make a scorpion-emblazoned, quilted satin bomber look this good
It's been announced that Ryan is taking a hiatus from acting to concentrate on directing. I hope this doesn't mean he'll be hiding too much.
