Wait, WHAT. Jared Leto. In a new HUGO BOSS Just Different fragrance commercial. Smizing SO HARD we're practically dead. Like, his piercing blue eyes are so intense we can't tell if he wants to douse us in perfume and light us on fire or hardcore make out. HOW. DOES. HE. DO. IT. Echelon, you feel me on this one? So hot, right? And this too-intense-for-life stare is literally within the FIRST SECOND on the commercial. First second! There's still 19 glorious seconds left to drool over, and by golly, we will. I mean, after he was named the face of Hugo Boss's Just Different fragrance in the spring, we've been stalking Mr. Hugo like a BOSS. (Lamest joke ever!) But, we're going to be honest here, we weren't prepared for this.

You guyyysss, it's National Coming Out Day today! If you didn't already buy your Ke$ha shirt in time for the festivities, don't worry—we still have plenty of reasons to celebrate. Out Magazine released their November cover and BY GOLLY. We are completely blown away by True Blood hottie Alexander Skarsgård gracing us with his gorgeous presence. This minimal black and white cover is here to prove two very big things: 1.) You don't need a lot of flashiness and high fashion to make a cover insanely gorgeous. 2.) Alexander is a TRUE stunner with his not-trying-too hard (but we still know he's trying) beauty game. Also, HAI BEARDY MCBEARDYSON. Nom nom nom.
Taylor Lautner for "GQ" Australia.

Just when you thought you had Taylor Lautner's cover boy routine down to a science—it's either the smiley-eyed all-American boy à la Seventeen or the brooding mystery man, dark and lusty on the cover of VMAN—he turns out a curveball like this. Dripping in Old Hollywood style, from the slicked back side part and the cleanly knotted skinny tie all the way down to the Rat Pack swagger one-hand-in-pocket stance, Tay Laut is a tall drink of water fronting GQ Australia's November 2011 issue and to date, the 19-year-old has never looked more classically handsome in our eyes.
We already know that Lady Gaga's muse/"Born This Way" music video scene-stealer Zombie Boy aka Rick Genest is a total and utter BABETRON, but, like, haven't you always wondered what he'd look like without all those tattoos? Specifically in the face region? I mean, they're amazing because he's practically a living and breathing work of fine art, but there's always a hint of curiosity looming over us when we see a skull-faced man in such FINE threads (see: Mr. Genest WERKING it in that plaid military Rag & Bone jacket above). Plus, Rick is so chiseled that his bone structure is to DIE for. (We didn't mean that to be funny because, really, dude is hot.) Luckily, the fine people over at Schön! magazine were ALSO curious and actually covered Rick in makeup to see what he'd look like sans tats—in gorgeous clothing, nonetheless. GENIUS. Turn up those fans, ladies, it's time to ogle.
In case you haven't been stalking Jared Leto all summer long like we have, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman recently ditched his spiky 'do for a sleeker, slicked back look. We spotted him hanging with some mega fans (um, is that Jared's name tattooed on a dude's stomach? That's some SERIOUS Echelon dedication, y'all. *slow clap*) last week, and we noticed he gave his locks some little extra comb and pomade lovin'. We love this new look! There's something super hot about a guy who takes care of his hair, and we definitely think this is a step up from his wild Dragon Ball Z 'do. (What? It just seems like it would hurt to touch it. Don't kill us, Echelon.) Also, haiiiii scruffy little beard. Nom nom nom.

Something hairy is going on with Taylor Lautner, guys. When we spotted him at an Abduction premiere a couple days ago we noticed he had, like, stuff on his face. We were all, "Ew, what is that? Lint? Cat hair?" Thanks to our incredible zooming capabilities (aka Photoshop), we were able to uncover that the "stuff" on his face was actually hair. Or, as some say, "beard." But is Tay Tay actually trying to grow a beard to warm up for the winter months or is it just a little 5 o'clock shadow from a day of not shaving? Well, let's take a closer look, friends. (Personally we'll find ANY excuse to stare at Mr. Lautner for lengthy periods of time.)
Ryan Gosling on 'Conan' Sept. 19.

This post needs a disclaimer: We're gross. Just for this one particular sliver of internet space for one particular moment in time, we're gonna get a little raunchy. OK, now that that's off our backs, whewwww. *adjusts sleeves, cracks neck* Let's get this par-tay started! So Ryan Gosling was on Conan last night, and wow. Wowwww. He looked, heh, dapper. *dabs sweat off forehead* He wore a light gray checkered two-button suit with a crisp white shirt, black skinny tie, and shined-up black shoes. And we were all, "Yayyy. Ryan. La dee daaaa," like every other girl when he walked on set. But then, Mr. Gosling sat down and our brains EXPLODED.

Listen, sometimes Jared Leto just wears so much funky stuff within one week that we can't handle it, but because were a little, um, busy with New York Fashion Week we didn't have the time to stalk him like we usually do. Which is a lot. But don't worry—WE DIDN'T FORGET ABOUT YOU, JARED (Echelon, we haven't forgotten about you, either), we're just catching up on all his style haps and WHEW, BOY. We are mighty pleased with his clothing offerings as of late. First up: Jared Leto at Terry Richardson's studio this weekend. He's just hanging out with actor Balthazar Getty, all NBD in an oversized fedora, signature cutout tee, black aviators, and—our favorite part—black painted fingernails. Dudes rocking painted nails is kind of REALLY hot (as we've seen on our favorite Korean boy band Big Bang) and seeing them on Jared is no different. But this was just the WEE tip of the iceberg, friends. Please follow us into the Leto lair of style, where we can get lost in even MORE ensembles. Bwahahaha.

It doesn't take much for Taylor Lautner to command our attention, especially when he's on the cover of a magazine (or looking like a TOTAL BABE in all those Abduction movie stills). Give us his searing stare or megawatt smile, and that's it, we're DONE. Lucky for us, we're living in a time when the fashion world loves Tay-Tay as much as we do. Thus, we must give props GAH-lore to Seventeen magazine for gifting us with Taylor Lautner in all his grinning, white teeth glory on the cover of their October issue. Not only do they tip us off as to who he's currently dating, they have quelched our post-summer blues with the most ADORBS photo outtakes. You can't just toss up shots of El Tay dressed like a lumberjack, clutching a football all smarmy-style, or hanging tough with a wolf-dog and not expect us to freak out, OK?
Pharrell Williams at the Palladium Boots "Tokyo Rising" screening.

Let's just put it out there—Pharrell Williams' style game is on LOCK. Like, he's found a way to perpetually never mess up any ensemble he throws on, and we THINK we might have figured out why. Pharrell doesn't try too hard! He just wears simple, well-fitted, comfortable attire everywhere, which makes him ooze confidence in a we-seriously-can't-even-handle-it kind of way. Case in point: Pharrell at his Palladium Boots Tokyo Rising screening this week in NYC. He kept his look easy peasy—he wore a crisp V-neck white tee, gray cardigan, distressed jeans, Chanel beaded necklace, black lace-up boots, and a fitted cap. And listen, we know we've seen this Pharrell look before (well, partially), but he was promoting his Palladium Boots-sponsored five-part web series called Tokyo Rising, where camera crews follow him around the city after the tsunami talking to artists about how the horrific event affected their lives. But, um, we have a little something to admit—we couldn't keep our eyes off Pharrell the wholleeee time!
