Spotted: Ryan Gosling Wearing the Most Adorable Sign of His Relationship with Eva Mendes
He man-cessorized with a long chain necklace bearing a pendant with an engraved name: Hugo, the name of Eva's dog! Love me, love my pets, eh? (Click the Zoom" button for a slightly better look, or click the link above to see a clearer picture.)
I'm starting to think there's an ongoing trend of men (at least in Hollywood) embracing wearable symbols of their relationship status. Of course, there's always been the often ill-advised tradition of celebrities getting tattoos for their lover, which is basically a sign that predicts imminent demise of the relationship with 99 percent accuracy. But jewelry is a sweet (and removable) way for a man to broadcast his devotion, so why sabe it only for marriage and wedding bands? Remember Johnny Depp's man-gagement ring? And Chris Hemsworth has been spotted in a necklace with wife Elsa Pataky's name and Phone number. Awww.
of course, it's not that surprising that fashion risk-takers ("risk-takers" is a polite way to describe how I feel about the Depp style) like Jonny and Ryan are comfortable wearing nontraditional accessories. I'm not quite so sure a regular dude would feel the same way, but if you'd like your guy to wear a bit of his heart on his sleeve finger/or around his neck, I'd bet the dog-tag style necklace would go over better with most dudes than a diamond ring. Men just don't appreciate sparkle the way we do.
