Steve Carell Finally Took Ryan Gosling's 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' Advice IRL

It's been six years since Crazy, Stupid, Love came out, and it's taken six years for Steve Carell to finally become one with the man Ryan Gosling's character was trying to make him. A confident, stylish, fly-as-hell DILF, that is. Mission: accomplished. That's not to say Carell didn't have style before. His red carpet suit-wearing abilities have always been great. It's more that we just haven't seen him in casual clothing. And why not, Steve? Why have you been hiding this sneaky stylish persona from us? In a time of political turmoil and general insanity, a clean-cut Carell is just what we needed. This is not Steve Carell in the time of Michael Scott—you know, the one who unknowingly wore a woman's suit to work. (All style risks must be made with self-awareness.) Let's break it down, shall we?

First, what an impeccable way to rock salt-and-pepper hair. The tapered hair cut and slight styling is flawless—maybe even, dare we say, as good as Clooney's. The tortoiseshell shades are a great modern option, and the frame complements his oval face shape. For the clothes, this chambray collar under a navy sweater is an easy option for a guy with a preppy edge. Expertly fitted slim chinos are great here, too—any skinnier would've looked too youthful. He completed it with brown leather sneakers and a walk of confidence. Well played, sir.
