Hottie Madness winner: Ryan Gosling!

Well, who could have predicted that one? (Note the sarcasm.) 2011 was officially the Year of Ryan Gosling, and it’s continuing into 2012. As you know, we’re smitten with Ryan around here and we had a feeling he would win (especially after the People’s Sexiest Man Alive backlash). But there were some close calls, major upsets and seriously heavy competition, and hey, you just never know. But, the ladies have spoken.

So congrats Ryan Gosling. You and your un-Photoshopped abs are crowned the GirlyObsessions Official Hottie for the 2011-2012 season. Wear the title with pride.

And again, a huge HUGE thanks to all who voted and played along! We had great participation and we’re already prepping for next year!

Ok, no more words. Let’s get to the hotness:

Hottie Madness Finals! Ryan Gosling vs. Leonardo DiCaprio.

So I’ve been accidentally calling this round the semifinals, but what I really meant was the finals. The Final 4 was technically the semifinals. Oopsie. Well, whatever, what’s important is that we’ve reached the FINALS! The championship of hotness!

We’ve narrowed down four weeks of hotties to two leading men: Ryan Gosling and Leonardo DiCaprio. I’m not surprised to see Ryan in the top. He’s been all over the place this year (including our blog) and I feel like we’re making up for the fact that he wasn’t voted People’s Sexiest Man Alive. However, I am surprised to see Leo in the final! You know I have undying love for Leo, but I didn’t think he’d make it this far. Maybe all the Titanic promos gave him a boost! Either way, I present your final two hotties. May the hotness be ever in your favor. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.)

We also wanted to give a HUGE THANKS to all who have been voting! We truly appreciate it and have already started collecting hotties for next years bracket!

Voting ends Sunday April 1st. Winner will be announced Monday April 2nd!

Girly Obsessions presents: Hottie Madness.

It’s that time of year again. I don’t know how many of you ladies watch college basketball. (I actually do. Go ‘CUSE!) But, in the spirit of March Madness, we thought we’d create a competition the ladies could appreciate: hot guys. And we’re calling it Hottie Madness.

A Ryan we’d like to play house with.

Ashley: I know we share a lot of love for a certain Ryan around here, but we really shouldn’t neglect the other Ryan. Ryan Reynolds. He’s just as hot, equally as charming, and I don’t know why we’ve waited so long to share the love. (Minus the one small mention.) Luckily, I’ve been seeing his mug all over TV in the Safe House trailers, and it reminded me that we needed to do this post!

See ya, 2011.

This will be brief. If I had time, or the foresight to do so, I would have put more effort into an end of the year post! And probably would have made a few resolutions, although what’s the point, I never stick to them. Plus Sara’s made a list so I feel like that’s good enough for the both of us!

But, we’ve had a great year at Girly Obsessions! Super quick recap: our blog was born on July 6, and this will be our 147th post. And to date, the subject of our most popular post is…Ryan Gosling. Shocker! So, we’ll be back in 2012 (which is a now less than two days away) with more obsessions! (And probably more Ryan Gosling.)

And a big THANKS to all of our fab readers. Seriously, what would we do without you? We hope to make this site even better for you in 2012!

Bringing you the most stylish men of 2011.

Since we totally slacked in bringing you a hump day hottie yesterday (although we did give you Mila on Tuesday), we’ll make up for it by sharing several hotties today! And bonus, they’re also well dressed! InStyle has been recapping some of the top trends of 2011, and they put together a list of the 20 most stylish men. Of course, we couldn’t agree more with their top pick: Ryan Gosling.

Ryan Gosling InStyle Most Stylish Blue tux

He’s had an incredible year, all while looking…incredible. I feel like it takes a confident man to pull off a shiny blue tux and a reindeer sweater. Even Bradley Cooper, who took People’s Sexiest Man Alive title, paid homage to Ryan’s style when he said: “Ryan and I were both in Paris this last week and a friend of mine showed me photographs from the paparazzi. And when I say ‘friend,’ I mean me, alone in my room, looking at the computer. And it’s like him walking around and he literally looks like he’s in a photo shoot, like he just came off the runway .”

Some of our other well-dressed faves include:
