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?

Not sure why they had to make it known she borrowed clothes from Eva…..its nice Eva wanted to help her, but that should be kept under wraps…..

Still bummed that Ryan broke up with Rachel McAdams years ago. I think Eva is too old for Ryan, but it’s time for that guy to get married!

His mom looks like a sweet heart, she has a very kind look to her. Ryan is an awesome man, he’s got a good head on his shoulders, and a great actor.

So sweet. I think it was nice that he gave is “girlfriend” a shout out. It seems they have a good relationship. Don’t know why people on this board always have to turn a positive into a negative. But, I thinks his mom looks stunning

This is very sweet all around but the most impressive thing is that Donna fits in Eva’s clothing. She must have a great figure under that coat. You go mom!

That is awesome that she can wear Eva’s clothes, more power to the mom for looking so good at the premiere.
Eva is great for helping her get ready for the big event and letting her raid her closet.
Very Nice people, I hope it lasts between them, Ryan and Eva that is.
