Aww, Ryan Gosling Was Really Cute... But Really Unstylish

Ryan Gosling is the ultimate babe. He can sing, dance, act and save lives -- seriously, is there anything he can't do? Gosling steals our hearts on the big screen, charms his way through press tours and has just about the most dreamy eyes we've ever seen. And boy, can this hottie rock a suit.

In celebration of his 33rd birthday today (Nov. 12), we are taking a look back at baby Gosling. Believe it or not, the Canadian heartthrob didn't always have a strong sense of style.

During his early years, the Mouseketeer committed a cardinal fashion sin: white socks with black shoes. Though we wish we could stop there, we can't help but notice his serious '80s knit shirt and his... pendant necklace? Oh, Ryan. Just when we thought you were perfect. Kidding, you still are perfect.

In his defense, it doesn't look like Britney Spears or Justin Timberlake struck fashion gold either. Happy birthday, dear Ryan! We are going to give you a pass on your fashion faux pas since it is your special day. Call us!
