Eva Mendes Lent Mama Gosling Clothes for the 'Gangster Squad' Premiere

No, Ryan Gosling didn’t bring girlfriend Eva Mendes as his date to the Gangster Squad premiere in Los Angeles Monday night, but he did bring his mom … who was wearing Mendes’s clothes. No, really.

“My mother’s wearing all my girlfriend’s clothes,” Gosling confirmed to E! News of his mom’s ruched dress, paisley trench and statement necklace. “I’m wearing Eva Mendes,” Donna reiterated, adding, “She let me raid her closet.”

Upon close inspection, we can totally see Mendes’s influence in Donna’s outfit. The short, sexy ruched gray dress is something the actress would totally wear, and we wouldn’t be surprised if we’d spotted her in those classic strappy black sandals before.

Gosling and Mendes, who clicked while filming The Place Beyond the Pines together in 2011, were first spotted holding hands in September of that year on a low-key date at Disneyland. Since then, they’ve taken their romance to New York, Los Angeles, Gosling’s native Canada and Paris, with Mendes first meeting Gosling’s mom on a movie date in N.Y.C. last January.

The stars have managed to remain pretty quiet about their relationship to this point, making Gosling’s use of the word “girlfriend” last night all the more poignant. Tell us: Would you ever lend your partner’s mom your clothes?

One thing to say . . the outfit is very nice on Ryan’s mom . . however Eva Mendes has NO FASHION SENSE or STYLE at all. She needs a stylist.

Sometimes guys need an older woman (Eva) to keep them in check. In this case, it’s working..
