Pairs Division: Kruger and Jackson

Posted on July 03, 2012

Okay, generally we applaud it when people really put some thought into their outfits and try to put together a look appropriate for the event and the venue. But sometimes, there is such a thing as being a little too on-point. Those are the times where we say things like “If this was a scene in a movie, we’d laugh at the costume designer for being so pedestrian.” In other words, if you’re going to a Paris couture show…

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson attend the Chanel Fall 2012 couture show in Paris.

Chanel Resort 2013 Collection

…maybe you shouldn’t dress in a manner akin to wearing a t-shirt that screams “I’M GOING TO A PARIS COUTURE SHOW.”

SHE: Looks cute, we have to say. And we’re sorry to re-use a good line that we recently used, but this looks like something Carrie would have worn when she was swanning around Paris with Mikhail Baryshnikov and getting slapped. It’s just a little too referential, y’know? Like all it needs to complete the picture is a baguette. It’s not a bad look – in fact, it’s quite cute – but there’s a big part of us that looks at the whole picture and has to resist the urge to roll our eyes and say, “Come ON, honey.” Still, we can’t take too many points off just because she looks like a couture tourist. A coutourist, if you will. Score: 7/10.

HE: Has slimmed down, right? We don’t ever remember him looking so svelte. At first glance, we declared him far too casual for a couture show, but the more we look, the more we like. He looks casual, but chic – and very comfortable, which is important with guys who aren’t necessarily inclined to put a lot of work into their clothes. We wouldn’t have thought so, but the slim cut of those pants really looks great on him. Score: 7/1o. She did more work than he did (as is usually the case), but his simple elegance really shines here.

Combined score: 7/10. Like we said, they look like they’re starring in a movie about a beautiful couple attending Paris fashion shows. That’s both a good and a not-so good thing at the same time.

            Maybe stealing other posts and spamming are fun. Then again, maybe they make you look stupid.

            • RzYoung

              I’ve been noticing this lately too. With links to dodgy looking websites. TLo, daddy and daddy need to tell these people off.

            It kinda goes into her ear, like a bejeweled bluetooth hearpiece. ..FoxGetPositionWork.blogspot.com

    • Paigealicious

      I’m sorry, but I hate when guys don’t wear socks with loafers. All I can think about are sweaty manfeet.  I do like that her dress appears to have panniers, though.

      • gloriana232

        He might just be wearing low socks, though. Handy trick.

      • http://twitter.com/DarthJaeda Jaeda Laurez

        That’s exactly what I thought. I realize that it’s “the look” right now, but IDC IDC IDC.

        In deck shoes, yes. In real shoes with real full length pants- it invariably looks stupid. 

    • Emily Giovanni

      Is she wearing one insane earring? I think I will start doing that. 

      • AmandaCathleen

         I know right? When I first saw it I thought it was kind of crazy, and yet she’s pulling it off and making it look pretty fabulous.

      • RebeccaKW

        You’re right, I didn’t even notice!  Now I want to raid an antique store for some sparklers, to wear only one. Then I’ll sniff at my friends “it’s all the rage at the Paris couture shows.”

      • http://twitter.com/almcafee Alison McAfee

        yes! I noticed that too. loveeeeeeeee.

        It kinda goes into her ear, like a bejeweled bluetooth hearpiece.

          Ick, yes, that’s why I don’t like it.

      • http://twitter.com/starlounging Ann M. Erickson

        I like the idea, but here I think it only contributes to the hilarity of over-dressing the part.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZBFH32YG44LIIZYLSQPMBXMYCU Sarah

        I believe it is a calculated attempt to balance the tip of her beret on one side with bling on the other. I’m sorry, but a beret in Paris? I think she looks good, because she’s beautiful, but I feel as if the French will mock her on sight. Maybe they don’t know that cliche? I’ve not been there. Perhaps they will just say “Oui! The national chapeau!”

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sierra-Delta/100003182924700 Sierra Delta

          The French tend to appreciate it when any barbarians (read non-French) acknowledge their Gallic superiority.  I would expect them to be charmed by Diane’s beret and gracious in accepting her wearing of it as a witty cultural nod.

          I love the way she incorporated the one fabulous opulent earring into her outfit.  It’s subtle, elegant, and chic, all things which should endear her to les Parisiens.  She looks fresh and understated.

          Almost twenty years ago, I went on a tour of the Louvre.  Our docent, who looked strikingly like Geraldine Chaplin, was expecting a mainly American English-speaking group, so she dressed with care for us:  an elegant black pencil skirt, charcoal tights and shoes, a cashmere tunic — and a Minnie Mouse scarf wound nonchalantly around her elegant neck.

      • http://twitter.com/noshadejustT Tea

        Is it in her ear or in her hair? I thought it was a hair bauble.

        DOES THIS MEAN I CAN START WEARING MY HUGE, EAR-SPANNING EARRINGS? YES.

    • http://twitter.com/mizenkay Nancy K.

      The photo backdrop is awesome. Like Foux de Fafa goes to the prom.

    • kimmeister

      How did she sit down in a normal chair with those gigantic side bustles?!?  Love her makeup though, and I’m a sucker for a cute newsboy cap. I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen her in flats.

      • BerlinerNYC

         LOL. You know that Pacey and whoever was sitting on her other side were both wearing a lapful of dress!

    • http://twitter.com/msjwatt J.Watt

      Wow. This is just a *bit* too theme-y. Though those shoes she has on are fab.

    • Sobaika

      At least their blues don’t match.

      And I really hope an earring fell off without anyone noticing. Looks stupid.

      • Kristin McNamara

        True about the blues, but ALL I can think of when I look at the blue of that dress is “light wash denim” (which, it appears from the close-up, it is decidedly NOT). Even after a second and third look-through of these photos, I still can’t make my eyes see that blue as non-denim. In my opinion, fabulous design or not, that color makes the dress look SUPER cheap/tacky.

        • Sobaika

          I thought denim too, and it called to mind that horrific matching denim explosion worn by Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears in their heyday. This may be theme-y but at least it’s not that!

    • lovelyivy

      It looks like they’re going to burst into a dance sequence. Very American in Paris.

      • CozyCat

        Absolutely!  I swear at some point in the movie Leslie Caron wears that dress.  And he’s doing the whole “Gene Kelley wearing tight pants and loafers” bit.

        Yeah, it’s a bit much.  But on the other hand, don’t they look like they had fun getting dressed for this?  Look at his posture–I swear he’s in on the joke!

        • SaoirseLee

          He’s definitely taking the piss! :D

          Perhaps we’re witnessing a relationship power play via the medium of red carpet appearances, and this is his payback for her apparently begrudging turn-out at the  NHL awards…

        • drdarke

          He’s Joshua Jackson – of course he’s in on the joke! He has his Ironic Snark Field at full, the one that helped him survive five years of DAWSON’S. CREEK.

      • Kate4queen

        I had exactly the same thought! Gene Kelly, in Paris being a painter in a beret with the gorgeous Leslie Carron pirouetting around him. :)

      • formerlyAnon

         However, mes amis, Gene Kelly wore socks.

    • RebeccaKW

      I love that she is wearing flats.  The hair sticking out wonky from her hat is driving me nuts though.

      I can’t see a man in dress pants, loafers, and no socks and not be reminded of James Spader in ‘Pretty in Pink.’  As much as I love him and Pacey here, I just can’t with it-screams of douchey-ness.  Are there other acceptable summer shoe choices for a man’s dress look?

      I would wear a garbage bag and Uggs if it meant I got to wander Paris with Mikhail Baryshnikov.

    • AmandaCathleen

      I know they sort of look like they’re in costume, but I still think they look gorgeous. I’d give them a 9/10.

      • mshesterp

        Her face is so pretty it’s just distracting, you know what i mean?  I also think she looks pretty fab.  Him too!

      • AudreysMom

         C’est parfait!

    • Judy_J

      She’s channeling Audrey Hepburn in “Funny Face”, isn’t she?  That cap she’s wearing is the icing on the cake.  He looks good, but I really hate the “no socks” thing.  All I can think about is stinky feet when I see that.

      • MilaXX

        Good shoes don’t really stink. I rarely wear socks except for tights in the winter and the only time I have a problem is with shoes that don’t breath, usually the cheap, payless ones. A decent leather shoe, or canvas espadrille won’t stink.

        • alyce1213

          Shoes don’t stink (maybe cheap fake leather) – feet do.  It’s more the wearer than the shoes, even expensive ones. Men’s feet are stinkier than women’s and their armpits smell worse, too.  Biology.
          I imagine I will raise some hackles for saying that, but in my experience, it’s true.  I usually prefer socks on a man unless he’s wearing shorts or really casual slacks, but this all works, he looks great.
          And I adore espadrilles on men.

          • MilaXX

            Never experienced that. None of the guys I know have stinky feet and at least 2 of them go sockless from time to time.

      • julnyes

        Hepburn and Astaire did not have great chemistry (of the romance variety) in that movie, but I do love the dance sequences.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VZLU6YVO4BRTELTTH3GRAAMWZQ Dot

      The backdrop is what makes the whole look supremely ridiculous. A baguette and bicycle are all that’s missing.

    • momogus

      Oh, Pacey! Swoon.

      • http://twitter.com/msjwatt J.Watt

        He was never better than in the Creek…or Skulls maybe.

        • Sobaika

          I take it you don’t watch Fringe?

          • http://twitter.com/msjwatt J.Watt

            No, not my thing.

    • Wendi126

      Yes I too immediately thought Carrie in Paris and I agree with her critique. However I am madly in love with her in this look-from the swing and color and fit of the dress to the adorable chapeau and the one crazy earring. He’s cute too

      • Jill Roberts

         The dress is flawless, and she suits a beret.  I love the earring too.  Normally I’m not a fan of the literal, but this is so perfect that I don’t care.  Pacey should have stepped it up, but I wasn’t even noticing him.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Beret? BERET?!!!!!

      • Hiptobesquare

        It’s a bit much, non?  But I love everything else about her look.  The fit of the dress, the flats–very 1950s.

        He is seriously underdressed.  Period.  

      • terpsichory

         It’s not a beret. Tsk! I should know, I still have one somewhere… from my last trip to Paris…

      • another_laura

        I know, it may not technically be a beret, but it’s close enough and with the ballet flats it does start to scream ‘Funny Face’

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sierra-Delta/100003182924700 Sierra Delta

        Calm down, mon cher!  It’s not a beret.  It’s the fabulously expensive version of a newsboy-type cap.

        In 1966 I was a high school exchange student living with a French family in a suburb of Paris.  I bought my preteen sister this hat (and a small purse, both in a gorgeously flowered print on a white linen background) at Printemps, the elaborate department store on Boulevard Haussmann.  She loved it so much that she regularly slept in it.

        It used to be common to see men all over the city wearing a version of this.  It looked very casual and chic, except on the unshaven dudes peeing against the wall of a building in an alleyway.

        • Qitkat

          Cool memories for you. I’m guessing that you had a better time in Paris in 1966 than I did.
          I was with a traveling college group over the 4th of July weekend on our Paris stop that year and for some reason most of us were miserable. So we drank too much cheap wine! I’ve always wanted to return to Paris and redeem myself. I imagine some of us also bought berets and newsboy caps there, not moi, I had almost no spending money :(
          Time has put a nostalgic spin on my bad weekend.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sierra-Delta/100003182924700 Sierra Delta

            My husband and I took our teen sons to Paris in the mid-90s.  At that time, my husband was working in the U.S. for a French owned company, so our trip was both business and pleasure.

            I’ve always found that the French will meet you more than half way if you try to speak their language, no matter how much you mangle it.  It seems to be the effort that counts.

            My younger son had been taking French in junior high for several months, so he kept a notebook with him at all times to jot down words and phrases he didn’t know.  One night he put money in a vending machine just down the hall from our hotel room, but nothing came out.  In high dudgeon, he marched down to the front desk to announce in his best carefully rehearsed French, “By my room is a thing that eats money.”

            A workman was summoned, and we all trooped back upstairs to confront the offender.  After thoughtfully regarding the machine for some minutes, our workman kicked it on the side and karate chopped it on the top, and my son’s candy bar appeared.  We were delighted, and our Frenchman modestly accepted our thanks.  The notebook appeared, and my son said, “How do you call this thing that eats money?”

            Our Frenchman rubbed his chin as he considered the question and finally said laconically, “Vendeuse.”  Thief.

            Go back to Paris, Qitkat!

            • formerlyAnon

              Wonderful story!

            • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sierra-Delta/100003182924700 Sierra Delta

               Merci!

            • Qitkat

              Great story! Lucky kids to have that opportunity. (I’ve been out of town, LA not Paris, hence the late response.)
              I am going to start planning some special trips and Paris will definitely be on the list. And brush up on my largely forgotten French. And renew my passport. So now that I have dipped my toe back in the travel pool (I hadn’t flown for nearly five years til last week), I am anxious to treat myself. I appreciate the support from a fellow kitten.

    • Anathema_Device

      Yes, it is a bit costume-y. They need to break into “Foux de Fa Fa” by Flight of the Conchords:

      This makes me want to paint my nails red immediately. And do a less half assed job on my makeup.

      I am starting to detect a Clooney resemblance. God, I want that shirt…and those pants.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      she looks beautiful but all she needs is a bicycle and a box of Laduree macarons and the tableau would be complete!

        Oh, great. Now I’m drooling!

        • schadenfreudelicious

          toutes mes excuses!, i love them too :)

    • Introspective

      The hat is what makes the coutourist label most appropriate. Its like the oversweet extra thick icing on an already decadent cake.

      I like that this may be a tongue in cheek look but the face shes giving is also suggesting that she takes this look (and herself) a bit seriously here. Which I cant do.

    • Lilithcat

      She’d be fine if she took off the beret and wore heels.

      • MilaXX

         I actually like the flats with the dress. Besides the lady stars always have to wear such killer high heels, I’m not going to begrudge anyone who can work in a flat and still look fashionable.

    • PeaceBang

      It’s the president and vice-president of the French Club going to prom together. They’re so cute. They’re going to request that the DJ play the theme song from “The Triplets of Belleville.”

      It’s all a bit twee. Cute, but twee. And the no socks thing is driving me insane, too. Swampfoot. Bleurgh. 

    • Sara__B

      The cap is too much. The jaunty angle plus the ponytail over one shoulder and the earring just scream “trying too hard”. And I wish he’d shave. Other than that, they make a very attractive pair of courtourists.

    • http://twitter.com/anairbb Briana Blanchard

      They look wonderful! Simple, polished, and elegant. Their shoes are my favorite part. J’adore. 

    • MilaXX

      Between the matching outfits, the backdrop & her beret, they look like they went to Glamorshots.
      She looks good, but she needs to lose that stupid beret. 7/10
      He looks better than he has in a long time. Other than a pair of jeans I don’t ever recall him wearing a slim cut pant before. It looks really good on him. For once she’s not doing all the heavy lifting. 8/10
       total 7.5/10

    • Snailstsichr

      I like the pop of white on his shirt.

    • mmc2315

      Her eyebrows look amazing.  I’m in favor of the loafers plus no socks look here.  I think his shirt needs more starch and it would bump up the look considerably.  I love a man with a well-made, perfectly-tailored, well-starched dress shirt.

    • miagain

      Is that denim?

    • another_laura

      Too much blue for this PUF.  Fortunately they appear at the same level of dressed-ness, which T Lo noted – hey, they planned, hooray! – which is that she’s wearing something fashion-y but in t-shirt material and he looks like any number of post-grads that I see on a depressingly daily basis around here, in his button-down shirt and loafers without socks.  (Of course, these are very well-made and expensive ‘hey I’m just casual’ elements.)

      I uphold the T Lo judgment of 7/10.  Next time, not so much blue, mkay?

    • Candigirl1968

      I would like to steal Diane’s shoes.  If she lost that darned beret, and resolved that single earring thing (what is that about?), she’d merit an 8.  
      He looks great (totally rocking the “billionaire’s scion on the Riviera” look), and seems to finally have found the right blade on the beard trimmer for that scruffy look.

    • gaowmichelle

      it looks just a tad bit creepy.

    • kikisayshi

      If she just lost the beret, it wouldn’t be so literal and she would look great!

    • plinkiedoodle

      Sorry, TLo, I love this look on them!  They look chic and comfortable, svelte and stylish.  What’s to complain about?  

    • http://twitter.com/londonpenguin Teresa M.

      In the long-shots, it looks like the dress is made of thin denim. Also, are there stains on the bodice? I think she looks cute though.

      • tereliz

        I think it’s chambray, and usually if you see “stains” that are little circles, they’re dust spots on the pap’s camera sensor. 

        I think she looks cute, too. Honestly I think she’s perfectly dressed for this event.

    • http://www.facebook.com/izzzyy Dixie Murphy Ross

      so she poses so exactly the same (even facial expressions) that I’m almost wondering if Josh was photoshopped right in there. I know the whole crossed thing is supposed to make your legs look longer, but you didn’t even shift when he stepped away? 

    • HengRu

      “all it needs to complete the picture is a baguette.”

      Exactement, mes chers!

    • AlexisPayne

      I absolutely loves, especially for being cliche, they both look gorgeous.

    • Carleenml

      coutourist. new favorite word.

      • Kayceed

        Me too. I would love to see it applied to people wearing couture, badly.

    • jilly_d

      I also never would have thought to put those skinny trousers on him but oh.  Purrrrrrr.  She would have done a lot better to just leave the hat at home. Love the shoes, girl!

    • nannypoo

      I don’t like the great big skirt. The ridiculous beret takes it into costume territory. He looks good.

    • janetjb

      They look so fabulously pretty.  They may be dressed as if they came straight from a movie set, but I don’t care!

    • charlotte

      “Like all it needs to complete the picture is a baguette.” -Exactly what I thought.

    • kingderella

      i think the dress looks SPECTACULAR on her.
      the beret was probably a bridge too far, and the background doesnt help.

    • afabulous50

      Does she ever smile?  She’s like Victoria Beckham…

      • SewingSiren

         Except she has a very pleasant look on her face.

    • Tashina Savage

      I think they both look fantastic. I don’t mind that it is theme-y, because they have done it so well. Also, I can’t help but think they are being cheeky about it, and that is cute to me.

      I don’t mind the loafers with no socks. It looks very European to me, so again, on theme.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      Kristen Stewart should hire her make up artist. That is some GREAT face paint.

      The rest of her look is ridiculous. He’s totally doing the heavy lifting in the “chic” part of this duo appearance.

    • Dan_In_NYC

      Super literal, makes me want to scratch their eyes out, EXCEPT… I love it anyway.  It’s an IN for me!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/FEP56YB4DUIXBWSLIMSSSGQHWY jimmack

      They look cute. He could have tried a bit hardy. She should loose the hat.

    • formerlyAnon

      I’d give her an 8.5 out of ten, subtract one for wearing a beret in Paris, resist the temptation to add one because I love her single jeweled ear cuff/ring/whatever and her watch so much. She: 7.5/10

      He gets 8/10, a full half point of which is for the white band on the edge of his shirt cuff and part of the collar, sadly subtract a full point for sockless with loafers at any indoor event where your date wears a dress and full makeup. I hate that look so much I don’t care if he actually is wearing low socks that don’t show. He: 7/10.

      Combined score: 7.25/10.

      My personal score: = +1 for only ragging on ONE of my irrational hates. Many fellow BKs will know what I didn’t mention.

    • msdamselfly

      I think it’s an 11.  She’s totally pulling off that look without self consciousness and looks adorable  ( love the shoes with the dress) . Her makeup is flawless- He looks perfect

    • PinkLemon

      carrie was my first thought too!!! but j’adore this. totes.

    • jessieroset

      Prob crazy but I’m getting a Colin Firth vibe from him.

      Not crazy about the cap. But the pannier dress with sparkle flats is genius.

      I’m going to go out on a fashion limb (panniers?)here & say “Viva la France!” The look on his face says it all. He should get extra points just for that. Tongue in cheek?- yes. Chic? Bien sur! My only quibble is the one earring. The shoes? I LOVE cute flat shoes. I wear cute flat shoes. Someone said she never smiles a la Victoria Beckham. There is a big difference..VB looks like she smells something bad & has a stick up her bum. Not that I dislike her. Just sayin’.

      Wait, can we talk for a second– Is he not wearing socks!?

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        Neither is she. We don’t get what the big deal is.

          Loafers don’t need socks. Like boat shoes and sandles. Though they’re only inexcusable on sandles, I guess.

    • StephanieLovesTLo

      Ha, my first thought on seeing this was, “where’s the baguette?”

      Pacey looking a little Colin Firth-y…

    • bellafigura1

      She has nice makeup but the rest of her get-up makes me snicker a little bit.  He, meanwhile, deserved waay more than a 7.  I’d have given him a 9, based on the upgraded cleanliness factor, the slim thing and what I perceive to be a better attitude!

    • Lisa Dugan

      He looks the best I’ve seen him in a long time.  She looks lovely but the beret was a step too far.

    • http://twitter.com/MandySCG MandyJane

      I love that she’s wearing flats, but that’s about all I love. Hate the shape of the skirt, and the beret is hilarious.

      oh Okay.  Looking again, I see that you’re right.

      Loose the hat and she would look great! What the heck with the backdrop?

    • Trisha26

      The more I see of them together at these events I’m beginning to suspect they’re having a laugh at everyone’s expense. They’re entirely over (or above) the red carpets, don’t care, and are just having fun with it. That’s the only explanation for the looks above.

    • turtleemily

      Is that an earring or a blinged out bluetooth?

    • guest2visits

      Yes; very ‘couturist-y'; but she looks fantastic!  The panniers annoy me but she makes it work. They both look very good.
      Her close-up pic is stunning, how many people can wear a single giant diamond tree ornament, and a cap that looks like it was
      worn by the resistance cocked over one side, – and look so elegant.

    • LinXGUA

      She needs a baguette and he needs a … mouchoir autour le cou, et ainsi vous avez une postale “Wish you were here”.

      Very cute nonetheless.

    • makeityourself

      On an entirely different note, I am fascinated by the photo of the Chanel model.  She looks quite petulant.  Then I started to think she looked like she may be a he.  Interesting.

      THIS BITCH. 

      That’s what I have to say pretty much any time I see her (neon pink lace skirt notwithstanding). She looks fucking amazing about 98% of the time, even when she’s wearing something that would look ridiculous on anyone else. I think this is on the nose, yes, but adorable.

    • SophieCollier

      I dunno, his bare ankle look is a bit skeezy.

      The beret! THE BERET! Oh, why did she have to wear a beret?!?!?

    • PRFan

      I looked at these pictures and said “apache dance”!!

    • quiltrx

      If the dress were a little less foofy, this would work.  I give her props for wearing the hat.

      But WTF on wearing one humongous earring?  Love the shoes.

      And he looks cuter than usual.  Still needs a comb and a razor, though.

    • http://profiles.google.com/sauchih Sau-Chih Feng

      The dress looks much better on Diane than on the model. The model looks like she’s about to go on a murderous rampage, probably in retaliation for being forced to wear such a heinous wig.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      I read too much Stephen King.  I was wondering why Carrie White would be swanning around Paris, and if someone was going to drop pig’s blood on her.

    • RzYoung

      He looks delicieux and so TALL who knew he was so tall. And I’m sorry if it makes me obvious but I love her little outfit, it’s so cute.

    • Cheri Lee

      She is killing me with that damn hat. I have been in Paris now for a month and I have yet to see anyone wear a beret. He is almost as chic as the guys I have seen around here but she needs to seriously take that stupid hat off, otherwise she is adorable.

    • Bakerlooline

      She:  Lose the hat, fix the hair.  A comb and a bobby pin or two would work wonders.
      He: Just about perfect. Love the no socks look.  Pants are at the right length.

    • Warrior89

      huh….Joshua Jackson…who knew?  He’s looking fiiiinnnneeee.

    • OneTwoThreeFashion

      i think they look great… actually adore the dress (its color is lovely) and the french beret..not everyone can pull this off..

    • annamiklo

      “Coutourist,” haha.  I love the studded flats and white watchband with this dress.  Effective and simple styling.  It’s the hat that takes it into cheesy “Parisian” territory, I think.  He looks wonderful as well.  He resembles Colin Firth a little here.  That’s never a bad thing. 

    • ccm800

      thats a great dress. Damn stupid hat to wear with it but the dress is awesome. Why she always looks like she is about to murder someone is beyond me.

    • fursa_saida

      If someone would just snatch the beret off her head, it would go a long way.

    • AlinaValero

      his mankles make me uncomfortable and i’m not sure why

    • lilibetp

      I’d like it if she’d take off that silly beret. And he’d put on some socks.

    • marilyn

      The beret is casual and the dress is formal.  His pants are just short enough that we can see he is not wearing socks.  I don’t know about 7/10.  Hmmmm………..

    • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

      They’re both beautiful. They can get away with being a little cutesy.

    • Rebecca Jay

      They look like players in a stage show at Disneyland, and he looks like he just rolled out of bed.  I think they both look ridiculous

    • piecesofconfetti

      Sorry, I love it. That’s exactly how I’d dress on my trip to Paris (you know, if I could afford/had reason to wear high fashion).

    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      He looks delicious!

    • Vodeeodoe

      I’m loving it. They both look great and it’s nice to see him in fitted clothing. Occasionally it’s fun for couples to do theme dressing and their pose shows it.

    • Vodeeodoe

      Here’s my inappropriate comment: I’ve said it before, I’ve always had a little crush on Joshua, but she makes him look even sexier to me. Is that weird? You know how they said that Fred Astaire gave Ginger Rogers class and she gave him sex appeal. That seems to be happening in this picture.
