Emma Roberts and Evan Peters in NYC

Posted on January 09, 2013

These two are a couple?

We suppose, given our jobs, that we should be more up on celebrity gossip, but we’d rather pull our teeth out with pliers than devote too much of our brainspace to it. Not that sitting around discussing celebrity clothing is some sort of grand higher calling, but who’s dating who and who just got arrested and which celebrity is threatening to shoot another one are topics that leave us flat after about 30 seconds. We stick firmly to the idea that celebrities aren’t royalty; they’re modern court jesters.

Emma Roberts and boyfriend Evan Peters made a stop at the MOMA in New York City.

You just know he said something snotty about the photographer, sending her off into gales of laughter. It’s cute. We might actually believe they’re in love.

Anyway, clothes: Obviously, the big story here is his teddy bear sweatshirt, which is possibly just a little too preciously ironic, but still kind of funny. Love his scarf and what little we can see of the striped hoodie he’s wearing, but that jacket (which is the best piece he’s wearing) is somewhat ridiculously small on him.

She looks really cute. Love the suede booties, striped sweater and bright pink scarf. The purse is killer.

    They’re very cute. I always find her adorable. But I’ll just stay it, he is creating some weird internal conflict between my maternal instincts and my bowm-chick-a-bowm-bowm instincts. Is it that he’s just on the cusp or is it the teddy-bear shirt? Also, have I been skinny-jean-brainwashed or do his pants look just too baggy?

      EVERYTHING YOU JUST SAID HERE!!!  I keep calling it my disturbing and begrudging crush on Evan Peters, but you’ve nailed it!  Lol – I’m glad I’m not the only confused one.

  • I object to her ripped jeans.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      THANK YOU!!! I cannot for the life of me understand this trend!!!

      • Rand Ortega

         It sucked in 1989 when Janet Jackson/Madonna/Every other starletrockerchickwhatever did it.

        • EveEve

          Cripes – slashing started in mid-15th century northern Europe.  Yawn.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      Amen.  What the hell does that strategic rip accomplish?  It’s not like anyone thinks Emma Roberts ripped her jeans playing tackle football or doing carpentry.  It just looks absurd.

      • sweetlilvoice

        Darn it, I meant to click at the top of the post. Sorry about that. Recently, I saw a guy wearing ripped jeans that had flannel under them. I still don’t know if he was wearing flannel pjs and ripped jeans or if the ripped jeans came with flannel. Either way-stupid. Tons of snow at that time too.

      • suzq

        I can’t, for the life of me, rip my jeans…even by accident.  Perhaps I don’t engage in the sorts of activities that rip jeans.  My son, however, wears his brother’s handed down jeans and manages to rip a knee within months.  He refuses to wear them once they are ripped and he calls them “broken pants.”  I tell you, this next generation gives me a lot of hope. 

        • I normally get a hole in the crotch before the knees, but maybe try wearing the same cheap jeans all year or falling down to get a hole.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Me too!!!!

    • MissMariRose

      Objection sustained.

      • … and (insert gavel knocking sound) motion passed. Injunction issued forthwith.

    • formerlyAnon

       I wore ripped jeans at one point (though I never bought them that way, in my defense), so I am living in a glass house on this one.

      •  Oh totally. I had deliberately ripped my jeans in 1989 but it looked shit then and it looks shit now. It should go the way of acid wash and poodle perms (I never had a poodle perm).

    • I never wore ripped jeans until I had children and was apparently crawling around on the floor with them too often, because the knees started ripping out (always just the right knee).  I found them incredibly uncomfortable to wear.

    • Peter Hepburn

       I agree as well.  I always find myself wondering why celebs (“celebs”?) in ripped clothes can’t afford clothing that is intact.

  • She always looks so much better in woman on the street posts.  Casual is definitely her friend.  And she always looks more relaxed than in front of the cameras on a step and repeat.  The only annoying thing for me is the big gaping hole in the knee of those pants.  It is January in New York, no place for holes in your pants.

    • suzq

      With this “global warming” non winter we’re having on the East Coast, it’s not THAT cold.  Note the lack of heavy coats.

  • Sobaika

    They look like brother and sister. Anyone else seeing that?

    Anyway, I am a fan of his and don’t know what she’s ever been in but she looks cute and they look happy so I am okay with this.

  • ChiliP

    If it’s cold enough to warrant a scarf, jacket, and boots, then it’s cold enough to make sure there’s not a huge hole in your jeans. Honestly, I don’t understand that trend at all- it just looks sloppy. Cute look otherwise, though.

    • MRC210

      And if it’s cold enough to warrant a shirt, hoodie and jacket, it’s cold enough to button up instead of just piling on a scarf over the exposed parts.  I don’t have anything against the layered look per se but she looks top-heavy and he looks like you could peel him like an onion.

  • Janet B

    Cute young couple. 

    I don’t know why I’m giving the matter much thought:  If he removed some of the bulk under his jacket (teddy bear sweatshirt and hoodie) it would probably fit. Although the sleeves seem long…

  • prettybigkitty

    The jacket probably fits him fine.  Just not over a t-shirt, sweatshirt and striped hoodie!

    • uprightcitizen

      I agree. Especially with the dumpy fit of the pants. The sweatshirt is clearly a Christmas one (you can see that it has the word “jingle” on it … I’m guessing it’s something about “Jingle Bears Rock” or the like), so unless these pics are 3 or 4 weeks old, it’s an odd thing to be wearing. There’s layering and then there’s overdoing it. One more layer, and he’d look like Joey Tribiani, the time he put on all of Chandler’s clothes.

      But they look cute. When I see girls out and about, carrying purses like this over their bent arm, I always wonder if their arms don’t get stiff from the effort. It’s one of the great things about being a guy, that you either cram your stuff in your pockets or strap it to your back in a messenger bag. Your arms and hands can swing free.

      • I noticed that about the shirt. I kind of like that, I don’t know why. Maybe because they are just so cute.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    They look cute. If I saw them walking down the street I would have no idea who they were or that they were “celebrities.” (Although the paparazzi might give me a clue.)

  • I am a young, “hip” college student and I didn’t know they were dating either. It’s not just you guys. Maybe this is a recent development?

    • Hell Yes, I Would!

      I just googled – and apparently they’ve been together since last spring. Had no idea!

      • Well, now I am just a little more than jealous of Emma Roberts! 

  • I like that what she’s wearing is essentially my winter weekend wardrobe. I don’t have that purse, though. (Hint, hint.)

  • Rand Ortega

    He  strikes me as a very young Malcolm McDowell (ATTENTION: NO REMAKE OF “A CLOCKWORK ORANGE”, Rob Zombie! I don’t care how much power you think you have for making really bad splatter porn! Everyone in the business already hates you.). She is prettier than her aunt & doesn’t take herself nearly as seriously as Julia did at that age (Christ on a crutch, JR was insufferable!). They look real instead of a walking editorial. Well, more real than most “couples” who are obvious walking editorials.
    Already sick of the distressed jeans look.

    • Kimbolina

      Wait, are they seriously considering a Clockwork Orange remake??…  Ughh…

      • Rand Ortega

         Zombie’s been obsessed w/ the idea since he directed McDowell in the ” Halloween” remake 6 years ago. McDowell famously gave his blessing for an “ACO” remake  w/ a 3 word condition: “When I’m dead”.
        Fortunately, Mr. McDowell is still very much alive & so far, despite Zombie’s efforts, there have been no studio takers.

    • MilaXX

       Julia was insufferable? How about is ?

  • formerlyAnon

    They’re cute and would make some cute, very pale babies, if they weren’t too young (in my mind, if not biological fact) to do any such thing. The sweatshirt leaves me cold, perhaps because I think wearing it ironically is going too far and he’s far too old and appearance conscious to be wearing it un-ironically. Hope they’re having fun.

  • jw_ny

    The teddy bear sweatshirt…uh…no.  That alone makes me question that they’re dating, much less “in love.” 

    The torn knee…passe.  Yup, his jacket looks small, however I do like it paired with the hoodie in this case.  Otherwise…cute & well put together outfits for casual day out and about.  

  • 3boysful

    EVAN:  OMG–the paps are onto us.  Shit, I had to pick today to throw on this stupid bear sweatshirt . . . what are you snorting with laughter about?  You’re wearing jeans with a ridiculous hole in one knee.  We’re both going to get skewered by the Bitter Kittens.

  • crackineggs

    Modern court jesters.

    That is perfection.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    i almost did not recognize him, perhaps the 17 layers of clothing is making him appear much bulkier than he does on AHS, he reminds me in some ways of a young Rob Thomas which is a very good thing…..

  • ojosazules

    She is on my irrational bore me to death list. 
    When my jeans rip in the barbed wire fence, or something, it pisses me off. I don’t think she’s been scaling any barbed wire lately, somehow.

  • marilyn

    Not liking the rip in her jeans and his teddy bear tshirt.  

  • Somehow I think the idea of the outfit is better than the execution.  For both of them.

  • kimmeister

    Those shades look much better on her than the Nanette Lepore (?) ones that were named after her.

  • mhleta


  • alyce1213

    Boring and even more boring.  Hate the ripped jeans and the teddy bears.

  • This is a page right out of the book “Stuff White People Like”; a walking demonstration of the truisms discussed within.

  • MilaXX

    I think they both look cute in a hipster kind of way. He is just one accessorize short of hipster douche. A slouchy knit hat, or fingerless gloves or a fedora and I would be hating big time. The t-shirt is just right for this look.

  • quiltrx

    Love the purse.  He should put his bad Christmas sweatshirt away on the 26th.

  • meebs

    a whole lot of boring fug imo

  • ccm800

    yeah. this looks legit.
