Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning in NYC

Posted on November 30, 2012

They’re in a movie together, but by all means, start writing the erotic fan-fic in your heads, if you so desire. They’d make an odd couple, though.


Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning take a casual stroll through SoHo in New York City.

Sofia Coppola for Louis Vuitton Suede Asphalt Handbag. Alexander Wang Sigrid Over the Knee Boots with Notched Heel.

This is so clearly staged for the cameras that it’s kind of amusing.

His outfit is simply not worth discussing and we shall waste not a moment longer on it.

Her outfit is cute. Love the coat, but of course the boots make it. She’s worn them before and we don’t blame her a bit for recycling them. They can make even the plainest outfit look kickass.

Yes, dear. We can see your bag.

    Her hair’s blond again! I covet that bag so much.

    • i thought it was her sister who had dyed her hair?

  • gabbilevy

    OH MAN. I have been searching for knee-high boots and those would be PERFECT… if only I could afford them.

  • Beardslee

    I think of you two every time I carry my own bag like this.  I understand the product placement part but this truly is a natural way to carry a bag like that.  I carry my own bag like that all the time and I am as obscure and no account as they come.

    • Qitkat

      Except for the $$$$$, this couple looks as obscure as any I might see in Denver any day this time of year.

    • juanamom

       Really? It kills my arm to carry mine like that. Maybe I should unload it a bit . . .

      • MilaXX

         I carry bags like that too.

    • Me, too.  Shoulder bags are bad for my back, so I have defaulted to handbags for years.

  • In_Stitches

    If this is staged his PR team was off the clock; he looks homeless.  She, however, looks the best she ever has.   The weird double breasted single button coat is a bit odd, but I really like it.  In the spring, with a slip under it?  Dynamite. 

    • EditKitten

      I agree — to me, this is a best-ever. It’s chic and adorable.

    • Kristin McNamara

      It’s like it’s just a REALLY long men’s blazer…

  • BeeBeauNYC

    His outfit: $250. Her outfit: $10,000+?  She does look awfully cute. 

  • She looks adorable, but I can’t stand him.

    • Mismarker

      Agreed! I don’t get his appeal AT ALL. 

  • Meg0GayGuys6

    Since I’ve just graduated BKCC, I must ask the professors: If your bag’s handles are that small (yes, I see the one large strap, but many bags only have these small handles), how else are you supposed to hold it? I know you can just grab it with your hand, but I find that kinda awkward.
    I’m sincerely asking… This BKCC alum just barely passed the finals.

    • DeborahJozayt

      I barely passed, too, after downing 5 hour energy drinks while cramming for the final, but I think carrying a bag with an obvious convenience strap attached in this manner is just a way to freely advertise it to the cameras.

      I don’t think TLO are saying if you have a bag with no long strap attached, you’re supposed to carry your bag some other way. They’re just smirking at the fact that she’s totally showing off the bag as advertisement rather than carrying it for convenience. 

    • MilaXX

       I alternate. If I need hands free, I use the shoulder strap. In and out the car, I use the small handles.

  • Kayceed

    She looks a bit like Kate Hudson’s little sis. Cute.

    • jonnyf8

      Kate Hudson’s  little sister.  The one who got the talent.

  • When you add him to a photo op, it’s like adding a Sea Monkey for “Instant Hipster-splosion!” Love the boots on her, but a handknit hat would be much more hipster, Dakota, dontcha know. It’s currency in the bank, lady friend.

  • Is he wearing three coats???

    • julnyes

       it appears to be a t-shirt with a lined zip up hoodie (with an oddly placed breast pocket or tear? in it) and a coat … wait that might actually be two coats he has on .. either way he looks like a schlub.

      • AuntieAnonny

         I think the two coats might be one coat with a removable lining. I had one like that before, you could unzip it and it turned from a winter coat to a spring jacket.

      • Cathy S

        I’m pretty sure he IS a schlub. It usually works for him but he’s looking a bit homeless here.

    • Yes, he is…is it just me or is that ridiculous?  Either he is way over dressed (weather wise…not style-wise, obviously), or Miss Fanning must be freezing!

      • Derek_anny

         Not necessarily.  I know several people who feel temps at the extremes.  One guy will go out without a jacket, and another will wear a down parka.

  • Sarah Thomas

    So are they remaking Curly Sue?

  • Virginia Anderson

    I thought he was carrying a brown paper lunch bag for a sec. Scarf? Either way, *her* bag is fantastic.

  • lovelyivy

    I work at Columbia- every other undergrad has those over the knee boots (usually with a cuff) and I am officially tired of seeing everyone walk around looking like a faux pirate.  Die trend, die.

    • Mismarker

      Holla! I am 37 and found myself on a college campus a couple weekends ago for a football game.  Holy schnikeys.  This boot is every fucking where.  

  • But there’s no other way to hold that kinda bag. I mean, that’s the way I would carry the bag. If she wears it over the shoulder, the bag would smush under her arm given how short the straps are. 

    • AnaRoW

      I was about to post the same thing.  It’s also safest to carry bags in front of you like that. It makes it harder for purse-stealers.

  • PrunellaV

    Hey, at least his jeans are clean. She looks a lot like Jodie Foster here.

  • pookiesmom

    He looks like a homeless person. And the 11 year age difference (when she’s barely cleared to vote) makes any suggestion of romance between these two just waaaay too squicky. 

    • Agreed. It’s not so much the 11-year age difference in and of itself, but an 11-year age difference with an 18-year-old. It’s gross.

  • bertkeeter

    They look perfectly normal….not worth any comment!

  • formerlyAnon

    I could pass these two on the street a dozen times and never note them. Unless I glimpsed a stunning smile on his face, or happened to notice that her coat & accessories appear to have cost a couple of orders of magnitude more than his. Equally unlikely.

  • Rand Ortega

    He looks like her creepy uncle Hiram who refuses to take the hint none of her also teenaged friends are interested in him. But he tags along to meet them at Starbucks anyway. She pretends they’re not going to the same place.

  • quiltrx

    Hand over the bag, and no one gets hurt.  Cute coat but it wouldn’t fit me.

  • MilaXX

    I cannot image him bumping uglies with anyone. She looks cute.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Do they really truly have to carry a bag so it shows like that?  How annoying.  But her outfit is darling.  I am going to attempt to replicate it, from the top and bottom, inward.  Even the bag.  But without the dude on to the side..

  • guest2visits

    Well, I almost like his outfit more than hers.  I hate these particular boots of hers; please find something else Dakota.
    And she’s got too much stuff going on… it’s looking sloppy.  OR.. more like this is how LA dresses for the big bad cold of NYC.
    I like these pieces separately (except the bulky boots); but they are not working for me here. 

  • littlemac8

    Well, if they are a couple, then, of course they are an odd couple, because who could be more sexless than Jesse?  I don’t think it matter who you pair him with, it would still be perplexing!

  • dharmabum8

    Those BOOTS. I am in full on covet mode,damn it.

  • PhillipWilde

    She looks adorable.  He looks homeless.

  • decormaven

    Her look is good, but her coat doesn’t seem to be a good choice if it’s frigid weather. I assume it must be well-digger cold by the hoodie/puffy coat combo he’s sporting. Or she’s dressed for the photo op, and he just tagged along for fun.

  • Evy Colón

    I kinda love how she’s subtly giving everyone the finger… It’s the same gesture one of my doctoral advisers uses…

  • Love her coat. She looks great. The bag looks empty, which confirms your suspicion that she’s taking it out for a publicity stroll. 

  • wasn’t that a ”look’ in Legally Blond?

  • His sneakers are nice.
