Ryan Gosling bought casual flair to the red carpet while promoting his upcoming film “Barbie” at State of the Industry and Warner Brothers Pictures’ presentation during CinemaCon 2023. The fantasy comedy, which stars Gosling, Margot Robbie, America Ferrera and Will Ferrell, premieres on July 21.
Gosling arrived with Robbie at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas on Tuesday, wearing a colorful and casual outfit. The “Gray Man” star’s ensemble prominently featured a white T-shirt printed with “Directed by Greta Gerwig” in pink Barbie lettering, referencing the director of the film — in which Gosling plays Barbie’s love interest, Ken. The cheeky top was layered beneath a bubblegum-pink $700 Acne Studios bomber jacket lined with pale pink shearling, which Gosling paired with dark chocolate trousers and a worn leather belt.
Robbie, meanwhile, opted to pay homage to the film’s titular character in a pink gingham Prada crop top and miniskirt with glossy Christian Louboutin mules and a Chanel anklet.
When it came to footwear, Gosling laced into a pair of Red Wing Shoes’ leather boots to finish his outfit. The actor’s $300 Classic Moc style featured light tan leather uppers with rounded moc toes and woven upper laces, complete with stitched paneling. The pair was complete with Red Wing’s signature ridged Traction Tred rubber soles for a stable finish, completing the “Notebook” star’s attire with a rugged edge.
Gosling’s shoe style is dapper and versatile. The “Place Beyond the Pines” actor frequently wears lace-up and combat boots in a range of neutral hues on and off the red carpet, hailing from brands including Red Wing Heritage. For formal occasions, he can also be seen in brown and black leather dress shoes.
