How to Get the Look

How costume designer Dayna Pink created Ryan Gosling's cool style for "Crazy, Stupid, Love."

In the Warner Bros. comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, which hits theaters July 29, Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling), a fashion-conscious professional playboy with a sizable trust fund, meets Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) -- an average forty-something guy whose wife (Julianne Moore) is leaving him -- at their local bar and decides to stage a style intervention. While there's no shortage of luxury labels inside Jacob's well-edited wardrobe -- which includes Alexander McQueen, YSL and bespoke shirts by Gossuin -- Cal on the other hand looks as if he hasn't shopped for new clothes in years. "Jacob dines at the top restaurants, drinks the best coffee and shops at Barneys. He has exceptional taste, and you see that in how he dresses," says costume designer Dayna Pink, who mixed Lanvin with superslim suits by Albert Hammond Jr. (prices range from $2,100 to $2,400) that she pulled from L.A.'s hip boutique Confederacy on Hollywood Boulevard. "Cal's look is a little dated until Jacob takes him shopping, and you see him go from wearing a hilariously oversized polo to a suit that hangs beautifully." Although both leading men donned Prada shoes, Pink opted to use Italian brands Canali and Zegna for Cal's new look. "They're both sharp dressers, but Cal's more classic than Jacob, who's very modern and cool." Adds Gosling, who had 36 costume changes in the film, "We tried to have Jacob wear something different in every scene."
