As film's most stylish talents flock to the south of France to serve up a fresh crop of photocall looks, red-carpet-worthy tailoring and high-class cinematic offerings at Cannes Film Festival, it seems only fair that we turn our attentions to the king of Riviera style, Ryan Gosling. Here’s how the Canadian cuts it on the continent.
RYAN GOSLING'S GUIDE TO CANNES

Arrive in style
Spending their lives on location means most actors have airport style down to a fine art and Gosling’s travel steez is strictly first class. He knows that a jacket with strong retro detailing and some extra padding, like this burgundy bomber, is the perfect combination of cool and comfy and a surefire way of surviving the cabin pressure. Elsewhere, he goes for a ubiquitous celebrity cap and shades setup up top, a simple white tee underneath and classic black jeans and DM boots on the bottom. He adds a piece of luxury leather luggage for the perfect finish and he’s ready for another smooth landing.
Keep your cool
Live in your art
Play to your audience
Nail a winning look
It’s all well and good looking the part, but if you do actually make it onto the winner's podium (or photocall) it’s important to do it in style. Here we have Gosling demonstrating exactly how to do just that while celebrating an early victory for Drive with director Nicolas Winding Refn. Hand on hip, shirt undone and bow-tie askew, he oozes a cool confidence that says, "This tux is classy enough to accommodate a more relaxed, just-won-the-approval-of-all-my-peers styling approach."
