We ALL know Ryan Gosling is a megababe. Like, he's so far off in a league of his own that he can even wear a pajama shirt out in public and all women will still maniacally start crying at the mere mention of his name. I mean, the guy can't help it. He's got the looks, he's got the charm, and MOST IMPORTANT—he's got the style. (OK, FIIIIINEEE. His rockin' bod is PRETTY DARN important too.) But what happened the other day basically threw him off the charts. No one can EVER. COME. CLOSE. To Mr. Gosling's attractiveness after what a girl accidentally caught on camera in New York City the other day.

If you're a bona fide Gleek, you're probably already more than familiar with one Blaine Anderson, aka soon-to-be-superstar Darren Criss who will go from guest star to full-blown cast member this season on Glee. If he's not already hanging up in your bedroom or snuggling in your wallet (don't judge), prepare to paste life-size photos of him in your locker (either school or gym) because, make no mistake, this kid's gonna be HUGE. Not only does Criss have the MOST ADORBS SMILE known to man, he's a triple-threat performer whose talent you're about to see on stages and screens everywhere.
Vinny Guadagnino shaves a guy's head.

In case you missed it, there's an absolutely HI-LARIOUS bonus clip from last week's Jersey Shore of Vinny trying (key word: trying) to give Ronnie a haircut. He busted out the electric razor to help his roomie out, but SPOILER ALERT: It turns out badly. So bad, in fact, Pauly D walks in mid-razor cut and says, "Why you giving him them bald spots, bro?" Yeah. THAT bad. Ronnie continues to refer to his hair disaster as the "Friar Tuck" cut from then on out, and confines himself to the kitchen and wears nothing but robes for the rest of the time he's in Italy. OK, that last part was totally made up, BUT we're betting Vinny feels bad, right? I mean, at least a little? Well, yesterday he was in NYC giving passersby "fresh to death" makeovers and put that razor to use once again. Perhaps to prove that he does, in fact, know how to use clippers effectively? We'll never know his reason, but let's just hope this time it turns out a teensy bit better than Ronnie. *crosses fingers*

Hi, Mark Sanchez. *reaches out right hand* Nice to meet you. We haven't really...corresponded before. You know, with you being all into sports and us being all into fashion and stuff. I guess we never really crossed paths until now, which is even MORE embarrassing considering you're a quarterback for the Jets, which is a New York team (right?), and well, that's where we live. But all we have to say is, heh, OUR BAD. 'Cause boy, you are GORGEOUS. I mean, you got the entire September GQ cover to yourself, which is rad, but we couldn't help but notice how WELL you wear V-neck sweaters. Most guys can't show off their amazing pecs SHIRTLESS, but here you are, in your little forest green Boss Black sweater and gray pants werkin' it harder than anyone we've ever seen.
Andrew Garfield in 'The Amazing Spider-Man.'

The last time we fawned over Andrew Garfield in his skin-tight Spider-Man costume, we were ogling his, um, assets. You know, the ones from behind. Just a little south of the back. And a little north of the thighs. Oh for goshsakes, just LOOK AT THE TOP RIGHT PHOTO. *drools* Yeah. It's pretttyyy clear that the blue and red costume from The Amazing Spider-Man shows off EVERY last detail of his anatomy, including his, um, crotch region. Luckily, at Comic-Con Entertainment Weekly was ballsy (heh) enough to ask Andrew the tough questions like if he and director Marc Webb "gave a lot of thought to the south-of-the-equator regions," and if they talked about "whether to err on the side of being too Ken-doll androgynous vs. too bulbously revealing." Is anyone else DYING to know what Andrew said?
The Situation on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
Staring at Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's oil-slicked hair and super-tan visage suddenly makes us want to hum the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song and reminisce on G.I. Joe. Why? Because there is something so childishly adorable about the grown-up kid in a suit (and no, it isn't just his star-shooting "The More You Know" hair; look closely—it certainly sends us back to the days of Reading Rainbow and BOM-bum-BUM-BUUUM with its astral trajectory), but it is also his arts-and-crafts approach to a suit jacket.
Vincent Gallo in G-Star RAW's Autumn/Winter 2011 campaign.

Despite the fact that indie filmmaker Vincent Gallo kind of REALLY scares the crapola out of us, we still think he's hot. Like, he can turn up to a black tie event in crusty 3-week-old jeans, a smoky leather jacket, and unwashed hair and still look better than 90 percent of the people there. Though a lot of people can't STAND him for that (they're jealous, obvi), he's been a pioneer of hip New York style for years now—I mean, he was even Jean-Michel Basquiat's bestie back in the day. That MUST mean he's cool, right? Well, G-Star RAW agrees with us, so clearly we are right. The high-fashion denim line named him (and actress Gemma Arterton) as the face of their autumn/winter 2011 campaign. We love the fresh Brooklyn feel he brings to the European brand; who ELSE would pair oxfords and a skinny tie with some straight-leg G-Star jeans? *crickets chirping* Yeah, that's what we thought.
Paul Rudd on the September cover of "Nylon Guys."

As far as Hollywood heartthrobs go, Paul Rudd is the male version of America's Sweetheart. His sincere brand of sweet and funny has charmed us in every single film he's been in for the last TWO DECADES. It's kind of insane to think that the dude from Role Models and Dinner for Schmucks is still breaking our hearts the same way he did way back in the golden olden days of 1995's Clueless. One of our favorite moments in the movie is when Alicia Silverstone (aka Cher) sits in front of the neon pink Beverly Hills fountain and says, "I love Josh! I'm majorly, totally, crazy in love with Josh!" Is it wrong that we still mouth that line with her every time we watch it and that we maybe sort of mean it? No, no it's not. Paul Rudd is aging like a fine wine, and that's something to HONOR and CHERISH, which, incidentally, Nylon Guys does in this month's cover feature.
Sufjan Stevens sports wings during his Brooklyn performance.
Indie artist Sufjan Stevens took over Brooklyn this week with two back-to-back explosively entertaining shows. We attended the Wednesday night performance during the downpour of the freakin' CENTURY, but when we walked away tired, hungry, and soaked there was only one thing that kept our spirits lifted—reminiscing about his INSANE outfits. Sufjan opened the show in a black-lit neon orange and green custom-made jumpsuit complete with a LED light that blinked around his, um, crotch. (Something tells us this placement wasn't accidental.)
But juuuuuuust as we were admiring his glowing erm...package, a shadowy figure came out of NOWHERE with these gorge wings and placed them on Sufjan's back! Even from the nosebleed section, the sheer size and magnitude of these wings was striking, and kind of reminded us of the highly talked about feathers Selita Ebanks sported in Kanye West's "Runaway" video. Sufjan not only wore the wings with admirable ease, but he managed to sing pitch-perfect melodies and noodle on his banjo problem-free. Related: Victoria's Secret Angels have NOTHING on him.
But in pure Sufjan fashion, he was JUST getting the crowd warmed up—his costume changes got crazier as the night (and rain) wore on.
