Ryan Gosling's latest role (in Crazy, Stupid, Love, which opens on Friday) seems to focus heavily on what's under his shirt — per the previews, a rock-hard six-pack that we would be happy to let chill in our fridges — but in real life, the former Mouseketeer has turned himself into something of a fashion plate. We're used to seeing the 30-year-old Gosling on screen as anything from a neo-Nazi to a sex doll's boyfriend to a lumber mill worker carrying a mushy notebook; not exactly the kind of dudes who shop at Barneys. That's why it's so surprising to see his developing off-screen affinity for shiny suits, colorful jackets, and yes, velvet. It's been an epic journey from his days as Sandra Bullock's trucker-hat-wearing boy toy; join us as we chart how and when Gosling came out of his sartorial shell.
