Suffice it to say, there’s more—much more—to Ryan Gosling‘s dreamy allure than just his face. First, he’s a sensitive fellow, often bringing his mother Donna as his date to awards shows. Then there’s his masterful kissing prowess, which he displayed for the world at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards. Of course, let’s not forget his slightly scraggly pooch George, who is often spotted by his side and just about everywhere, from late night television gigs to being walked by Ryan’s very Lucky lady-love Eva Mendes.
But we would be remiss if we didn’t mention his casual street style preferences, marked by a blend of tattered band tees, technicolor flannels and dark wash denim. In short: the gold-hearted high school bad(-ish) boy of your dreams.
