Fluff: 12 y/o Ryan Gosling. Possibly even more adorable than the current edition.

Do you want to see a 12-year-old Ryan Gosling? OF COURSE YOU DO. Because he is adorable. And he says “aboot” instead of “about”. Cute little Canadian that he is.

Ryan had just won a coveted role on the Mickey Mouse Club, alongside other child stars like Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears when he recorded this interview. And apparently, he wasn’t as talented as the others.

He told Interview Magazine in 2010:

“It was kind of depressing because when I got there, they realized that I wasn’t really up to snuff in comparison with what some of the other kids were able to do. I remember one time they put four of us in a dance routine, but I was so off. I was on the end, so they just pushed the shot in closer on the other three guys to frame me out. I would just come in at the beginning of the show and then come back at the end, and occasionally I’d have a sketch here or there, but I didn’t end up working that much, which was disheartening.”

Oh Ryan. Let us hug you so that you can feel better. And maybe you’d like a kiss too?

And don’t worry – we’re not going to leave you hanging without a Ryan Gosling gallery to flick through…

You might already know that Brad Pitt is the new face of Chanel no. 5 – we’re still not sure why this gentleman is fronting up for a women’s perfume brand, but hey, we’ve decided not to overthink it. The ads have been met with plenty of hilarious spoofs. Here are a couple of our favourites (and if you still haven’t seen the original ads, you can see them here).

This spring, a certain style of skirt has grabbed our collective attention- the maxi.

Equal parts laid-back and feminine, the maxi is easy to wear on the weekend with a wrist full of bangles or the morning school/coffee run with strappy (but appropriately and sensibly flat) sandals. So you’re keen to try this trend out for yourself, are we right? OK. Here is how fashion’s A-list is styling their  maxi skirts and maxi dresses and a few easy ways to DIY:

New label to love – Underwear of Sweden.

We’ve found an intimates label that looks like swimwear but feels like underwear… why would you wear ANYTHING else? Underwear of Sweden fills a gap in the fashion market for well-priced, European-quality underwear and swimwear and is honest-to-goodness the cutest range of intimates you will ever wear. Their cup sizes range from size A to E and bottoms from size 10 to 18, check out the range HERE.

Shop here.

And speaking of fashion  – are you familiar with Gossip Girl? It’s famous for being the show on which every item of clothing is AMAZING (and often, utterly ridiculous). Every Gossip Girl viewer has their favourite style moments – most of which were masterminded by the show’s stylist, Eric Daman. As the show comes to an end, Eric’s moving over to upcoming series The Carrie Diaries – which is basically the prequel to Sex and the City. 18-year-old actress AnnaSophia Robb will be on set to play a 16-year-old Carrie Bradshaw, and we couldn’t be more excited to see the show begin in January.

In the meantime, we have this for you.

The best-ever looks from Gossip Girl, as modelled by Serena, Blair, Vanessa, etc… Take a look.

Onto another fashion item we’re not so sure about. 11-year-old Willow Smith stepped out to do some shopping in Los Angeles on Sunday, wearing a jacket with the words ‘I hate everyone’ blazed on the back. Hmm. We love her, especially after seeing this music video she released in July – and considering she’s known for fashion statements, this jacket even seems like one of her less eccentric choices. Flick through our gallery of her style below:

In other fluff news:

Ps. Any excuse for a gratuitous Bradley Cooper gallery…
