Gosling Lives

  • Najib Benouar

We’ve been seriously worried for a while now. For most of 2012, Ryan Gosling has been missing from red carpets, style blogs and, most troubling, our hearts.

Luckily, we can call off the APB we sent out, since it looks like Esquire has found him hiding out in Canada (our mistake for not alerting the Mounties). And thankfully, even after the hiatus, he hasn’t missed a beat. Here he is at the Toronto Film Festival, sporting a Gucci suit in an unexpected pattern and attempting the legendary invisi-tie. It’s a move that was perfected by Phil Collins (perhaps willed by an Invisible Touch) with success that may never be replicated. Esquire pans Ryan for the try, but let’s look at the bigger picture here: His Goslingness has returned.

Just in case, authorities are still on the lookout for his tie.
