Ryan Gosling single-handedly made '80s prom tuxes cool again during the Oscars red carpet
There’s not much Ryan Gosling can’t do. He can do the waltz sans-gravity (you know you loved it in La La Land). He can rip off his shirt and do the Dirty Dancing lift-the-girl-above-his-head move (we all saw it in Crazy, Stupid Love). And now, it would seem that the handsome dad can bring the glory of ’80s prom style back with a single tux shirt.
The Best Actor nominee whipped out the ruffles tonight on the 2017 Oscars red carpet, pretty much teaching a master class in tuxes. It was admittedly a risk, but in a sea of plain tuxedos it was nice to see something fresh.
Ruffled shirt aside, Mr. Gosling opted for a dashing bow tie and shawl-collar tuxedo combo to round out his winning ensemble. No doubt his stylist Samantha McMillen pulled together the swoon-worthy look for tonight, but we’re sure Eva Mendes approved as well.
And to anyone who might hate on your shirt, Ryan, we just have this to tell you: We’ll be your prom date!
