We’ve been tracking the fashion in the new flick The Place Beyond The Pines for a while now, and how could we not? I mean, METALHEAD WARDROBE, people! But while the on-set stills have given us plenty to talk about as we wait for the movie’s release this weekend, Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper’s premiere looks are an entirely different topic of discussion on their own. The two stars hit the red carpet last night in New York City looking dapper as usual, but with some, um, unusual twists to the traditional formal dude uniform.

Now, Ryan Gosling can pretty much do no wrong in our book, so if he wants to wear a velvet suit, we’re not going to stop him. Perhaps taking a cue from Eddie Redmayne, who’s made the velvet two-piece his trademark, Gosling wears HIS Gucci number with the same “aw shucks, I’m not THAT good looking” pensive expression that we know and love. After all, the actor has been exploring all sorts of new fashion terrain on the red carpet recently, so this seems like the next natural step. Then there’s Bradley Cooper, who paired his classic three-piece suit with…a slicked-back bob?

He might have his hair cut short in the movie, but Cooper let it all out— literally—last night, showing off his longer ’do. We’re glad that he slicked it back and everything so we can see his face (obviously), but in doing so the look gives off a wet sheen that’s similar to the one that’s been popping up everywhere recently. With a slightly wavy, tucked-behind-the-ear tendril, the actor just might be kicking off a new male grooming trend. A dude bob? A man bob? A mob? We don’t even KNOW what to call it, but Brad Pitt, Ashton Kutcher, and David Beckham have rocked it in the past, and now it seems like Bradley’s bringing it back.
