Man Of The Year – Ryan Gosling

There were no other candidates for Man of the Year, because Ryan Gosling has pretty much had it in the bag since Cannes Film Festival.

He was frankly robbed by People magazine for the title of ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ as he was so very dashing every time he hit the red carpet.

The Canadian heart-throb appears to take the red carpet seriously by opting for perfectly fitting Italian tuxedos in vivacious colours such as midnight blue, ruby or bottle green to set himself aside from other fellas in classic black or navy.

His favourite designers have been Ferragamo and Gucci. My personal favourite is the blue Ferragamo suit he wore at Cannes.

I can’t wait to see him hit the red carpet during awards season.

    I agree with every positive comment here. The scene in crazy, stupid, love when he takes his shirt off is great – pure eye candy. Wept with him in The Notebook and lusted after him in crazy, stupid, love. Is it a coincidence that my husband is called Ryan and my son Noah?

    I completely agree! Perfect choice!

  4. Rod December 27, 2011 at 08:51 #

    I still see him in my mind in Breaker High and now… Mr Lovejoy :)))

  5. Sabrina December 27, 2011 at 00:08 #

  6. glenn December 25, 2011 at 00:53 #

  7. Carolina Roq December 24, 2011 at 17:18 #

    Love him! Besides being gorgeous and fashionable, he’s a great actor.

  8. Liz December 23, 2011 at 21:14 #

    YES! God Yes!

    Great choice FC. He’s the only memorable man, fashion-wise, this year.

  10. Nat39 December 23, 2011 at 18:02 #

    Not a fan of Ryan, an average actor at best, not charismatic enough, and his style is a bit too “tutti fruity” for my liking, dislike the comical narrow fit shorter pants.

    • Nat39 December 23, 2011 at 18:59 #

      As for the sex appeal, I wouldn`t even put him on that list, it doesn`t come naturally for him.

    • Zerina December 23, 2011 at 20:47 #

      Go away 😛

      • Nat39 December 24, 2011 at 19:39 #

        Oops, sorry for raining on your “milk and honey” parade 🙂 but the guy is just not that good of an actor, and his style feels just as fake as his acting, in my opinion.

        • Zerina January 13, 2012 at 16:17 #

          That’s your opinion, go express it to someone who cares. 🙂

    • Jones19 December 24, 2011 at 12:11 #

      We’ll be waiting for your apology when he wins his Oscar and accepts it shirtless!

      • Nat39 December 27, 2011 at 18:25 #

        Yeah, you never know these days…even Alexa Chung won her award 🙂 but seriously, I`ll gladly take my words back, no problem, if it`s a very well deserved Oscar, and he can even accept it naked 🙂

      • Zerina January 13, 2012 at 16:18 #


  11. justme December 23, 2011 at 17:18 #

    Talk about well deserved!
    My personal favourite would have to be the beige Gucci suit he had on at the Ides of March premiere in Toronto. He wore it with an open necked white shirt and studded shoes. So flawless I wanted to cry.

    I’m loving these best of… lists, FC. I have a lot of catching up to do lol.
    Merry Christmas in advance!! 🙂

    Thank you for giving my husband this award! He totally deseves it.

    • EmmaWoodhouse December 23, 2011 at 19:21 #

      Lol 😀 😀 😀 😀
      He has great style. Don’t love the pajama look from Cannes but that blue suit? Stunning! 😀

  13. Tammy December 23, 2011 at 15:23 #

    Ryan Gosling is one FINE man <3

    • Alina December 24, 2011 at 08:02 #


  14. maria December 23, 2011 at 15:21 #

    i like that he is quirky and funky in his street style but always dresses up properly for the RC. It might be not the average tuxedo or suit, but he never tries to show up with jeans or scuffed shoes.

  15. maria December 23, 2011 at 14:41 #

    This was a no brainer. His style is so refreshing and unique right now.
    But it might be his confidence which is the sexiest part of all.

    • Mol December 23, 2011 at 15:23 #

      Perfectly put – love him and his style……and he is a very talented actor too, the whole package!

    • Natalie December 23, 2011 at 16:34 #

      Absolutely hands down agree with this!! He is so unassuming and humble to boot, and of course talented and sexy! The perfect guy, goddamn you Eva Mendes!!

      • Fashion Critic December 23, 2011 at 16:42 #

        “goddamn you Eva Mendes!!” DITTO

        • Zerina December 23, 2011 at 20:46 #

          Eva, I hate you :/

          makes me wanna cry xD

  16. paulina December 23, 2011 at 14:28 #

    yes yes yes!!!

  17. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) December 23, 2011 at 14:12 #

    You can tell he takes his RC seriously, but I definitely sense the confidence and fun he’s having with it.

  18. Zineb December 23, 2011 at 14:07 #

    I remember the green suit he wore once before, looked very stylish in it

    • Christine December 23, 2011 at 18:19 #

      That is the suit that comes into my mind when I think of him. Stylish: yes, well put. I would say HOT!!!!

      • Zineb December 24, 2011 at 00:04 #

        Totally !!!!

  19. ahot December 23, 2011 at 14:05 #

    Me too. He is so yummy in those suits! I really like his cool if i can say so. He really has something. Definitely one to look for

  20. Zineb December 23, 2011 at 14:05 #

    So true !! He’s way sexier than Bradley Cooper, at least he has a better sense of fashion which is kinda rare for dudes 😀

    • Emi December 23, 2011 at 15:32 #

      I agree with you, I don’t understand all the fuss about B. Cooper. Ryan is better and he dresses so well.

      • gurlygurl December 23, 2011 at 20:30 #

        Agreed, and like someone else mentioned he’s humble and unassuming too. He really was robbed of the “sexiest man alive”!!!! he is the whole package… Highly underrated. Glad to see at least his dreamy self can be appreciated here 😉

        • Jones19 December 24, 2011 at 12:10 #

          Robbed is too true! He’s flawless and not just on the red carpet.
