    Remember when your best friend's younger brother finished tenth grade and you suddenly, uncomfortably realized he was hot? No? Well, it happened to us, and now it's happening again: actually, we've had our eyes on Joseph Gordon-Levitt for years now. But still.

    Once a long-haired underdog in cargo shorts, JGL has not only blossomed into a beautiful man; he's also transformed into a veritable style star (and movie star) who's captivating the minds of stylish men and women alike. As his acting prowess and fan base have grown hand-in-hand, it's only natural that some image management instinct would kick in and step things up a notch, but given his recent GQ cover, we're sensing this whole dapper fella thing is a natural talent.

    We will say one thing, though: His acting versatility (from bad guy to sensitive guy to everything in between) doesn't necessarily translate to his wardrobe — and we've got no problem with that, because this guy wears a three-piece suit look better than any of the Mad Men. But the fun here is mostly in watching the phenomenal transformation. Whether you've been a fan since the early days, were a convert when you saw that adorable Christmas video with Zooey Deschanel, or are just now getting psyched thanks to The Dark Knight Rises, this timeline of Joseph Cutie-Patootie will have you swooning. So...just make sure you've got a fainting couch nearby before clicking through.
