Kruger and Jackson at Coachella

Posted on April 15, 2013

Oh, they’re just so cute, aren’t they? Like little rock-and-roll hobbits.


Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson attend the H&M Loves Music Coachella 2013 kick off event in La Quinta, California in head-to-toe H&M. 

Little rock-and-roll hobbits in their contractually obligated H&M outfits. And who can’t related to that, darlings?

No, seriously. They look cute. But it’s Coachella and you know what that means: Our annual tradition of pointing out stankboot. Miss Diane is throwing the gauntlet down to the other stars in attendance. “Top THIS stankboot, bitches.”

Well played, Kruger. Your Captain Jack Sparrow boots just may be the stankiest of this year’s Coachella Stankboots.

    Look, I know Coachella gives the ladystars (the boystars too, but mostly the ladystars) permission to dress like idiots, but Diane, honey, didn’t you look in a mirror and see that everything below the neck was a bad idea?

    Jackson looks cute and relatively toned down for this fauxhippie fest, it must be said.

    • drdarke

      To be fair, @8deb2affe7f387e1de2233d541eb1433:disqus , Diane would look fine if she was in sneakers – like her mate is….

      • Yes, sneakers, some fun spring-y flats… just not THESE boots.

    • Sobaika

      I think she looks fine until we get to the knees.

      • gabbilevy

        Dunno. The whole outfit is all caddywompus, like it needs a good yank out to the right. Plus badly hemmed shorts and the half-tucked shirt… Diane can do much, much better.

        • Sobaika

          Well, this is for Coachella. Not the place for perfect hems. Either way, wholeheartedly saluting your use of caddywompus.

          • IMNAngryLiberal

            I always thought it was cattywhompus, not caddywompus…it that a regional thing (I’m originally a Midwesterner) or have I been spelling it wrong all these years?

          • Sobaika

            I think it’s an alternative spelling.

          • gabbilevy

            I definitely googled it to check before I published 🙂

          • akprincess72

            We use cattywhompus, but we’re southern…

          • alyce1213

            She’s a movie star. Her seams should pattern-match and her hems should be well finished whenever she goes to a public event where she knows she’s going to be photographed. Funky is fine but sloppy is just sloppy. I suppose when it’s a contractual obligation one is limited in choices, but she should have selected another pair of shorts, maybe a solid color if pattern matching is a problem for the sponsor.
            Notice the pattern on his shirt lines up well, front and side, and it’s by the same cheap manufacturer (sorry, I hate H&M). I don’t get it.

        • akprincess72

          The soft make-up I like, but I wholeheartedly agree on the crappy clothes.

      • RebeccaKW

        I agree. Above the knees is good. The boots were a bad idea. Not that I am against wearing boots with the shorts at Coachella, but why bother with shorts if you are going to wear giant knee boots from some old caveman movie?

      • fursa_saida

        I’d say until we get to the pelvis. T-shirt is fine, the rest hurts my feelings.

  • I want these outfits for my boyfriend and myself.
    Go home, kids, you’ve accomplished your mission. Time to change into something else.

  • drdarke

    OMFG – those boots with the rest of that outfit! Diane Kruger looks dressed for a fetish I’m so not into….

    Joshua Jackson looks fine – okay, he looks like Peter Bishop at a family barbeque…just before the LSD Walter slipped into the cole slaw starts to hit….

  • Diego!

    hahahaha what happened to Joshua’s hair?

  • What the fuck, Diane?

  • AndresB

    What on earth happened to his fingernails?!
    Unruly remains of purple nail polish?
    Or did I miss a new male stank trend?

  • What is on his nails?? Nail polish or dirt?

  • H2olovngrl

    She looks so young! It is amazing what a big ol’ smile can do!

  • kayleymaybe

    Do I spy the remnants of black nail polish on Josh?

    • I see it too.

    • drdarke

      Is it nail polish, or dirt/grease, @kayleymaybe:disqus and @twitter-289440786:disqus ?

      If black nail polish, be interesting to know why he was wearing it….

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      I saw that too. I thought it was blue so the scene that I created in my head was, he was wearing the blue nail polish but on the way over he thought, “No, this is too much” and scratched it off.

    • Either that or he’s been gardening and now her nails are covered with dirt. Because it’s a very valid alternative, you know.

    • turtleemily

      I wanted to comment to ask if people thought Diane made him take it off. 😛

      And on a random note: I’m aware his first name is Josh, but my brain keeps wanting to think of him as Peter Jackson.

  • PastryGoddess

    Those shorts are making me nauseous

    The stankboot is fierce with this one

  • Oh sweetie…those boots…really? Really?

  • lehen

    OMG i almost forgot about stankboot

  • I was hoping this would mean a return of the stankboot 🙂

  • Does anyone else think Diane Kruger is 15 years too old for the short shorts/boots outfit?

    • drdarke

      I think Honey Boo Boo is 15 years too old for that outfit, @twitter-19271979:disqus !

  • DaveUWSNYC

    Looks like someone ripped her dress off at a Renaissance Faire.

  • Those boots are HORRENDOUS, but otherwise they both look cute. She is SO much prettier when she smiles, instead of smizes. And why does he have old black (?) nail polish on his hands?

    • MilaXX

      I suppose the polish is him trying to get his inner rock n roll on. It is coachella after all.

      • This would have been the time to touch it up, not wipe it off then!

      • It’s a bit too contrived to me. His nails were painted, and then scratched off? And he’s never been the “rocker” type.

  • BazoDee

    I like the whole look- I think she looks like she’s having fun and not taking any of this that seriously!

  • I hate those boots with a passion. Ugh. Yuck.

  • tired_mommy

    Nothing says love like a cup of ice with 2 spoons. No wonder they are stick thin…

    PS YEA! I finally figured out how to fix my browser to comment again!

    • MilaXX

      I thought those were snowcones. I imagine there’s a decent amount of syrup in that ice

      • lobsterlen

        Jackson will eat most of the snow cone. Kruger will only take 3 licks of the snow cone essence on the spoon.

  • l v

    Usually she’s so busy serving up fashion-icon-face that I forget how beautiful she actually is. Loathe the boots. The rest is fun. Plus, Josh as an accessory wins every time!

  • MilaXX

    I shudder to think what type of crude those fringes pick up if it’s particularly muddy anywhere.

  • I burst out laughing at those boots. Gorgeous boots? Yep. HILARIOUS with that outfit.

  • ralish

    Gosh, I just love him. Her outfit’s adorable until you get to the knee. ::Shudders::

  • hughman

    “Manpris and musketeer boots? Gurl, you need to sashay over to Cherry Grove. Our Fire Island house is full of fierce and we do not have time for that.”

  • rumcg66

    Is there something about the boots and her posture combining to make it look like she’s about to fall over? Or is it just me? I thought she was leaning against Josh, but even in the solo picture she looks like she’s… leaning. Or something. I can’t stop staring at it!

  • anotherkate

    I like her t-shirt, but those shorts are pissing me off with their misaligned patterns at the hem. It’s H&M so I guess it’s expected, but I’d be pissed if I were accustomed to couture and had to wear THAT. I will not speak of the boots.

  • MarissaLG

    Krug’s shoes ain’t cute but everything else in the photo is working for me.

  • thesixthbeatle

    Oh Pacey, youre so pretty.

  • alyce1213

    My eyes are twitching — I may convulse — from the misaligned seams on those shorts and the utter cheesiness of the boots.
    The Jagger T-shirt works for me.
    He looks like anybody, which is fine.

  • melissaisasnob

    Black suede boots in April? How droll.

  • Beth513

    I am not buying what she is selling. For one thing, she’s not that old, but that outfit is NOT age appropriate. Pacey on the other hand looks cute, very vanilla; my husband would wear that (literally since it’s H&M).

    • guest2visits

      Maybe that’s why I think it looks a bit fake and pretentious on her; like a concert-costume.
      It’s too teen, with or without the boots. I’m not liking his footwear either, too matchy.

  • pookiesmom

    Those boots are a crime against humanity.

  • PrunellaV

    So are boots at Coachella like hats at Ascot?

  • jetpackdino

    I’ll take me some Kruger, hold the boots please, and we’ll see how we feel later on about Josh for dessert. Thanks!

  • I feel like I am two seconds from seeing her cooch-ella. Maybe another half in on the shorts would help.

  • marilyn

    Typical SoCal dressing: Boots with short shorts. These people have lots of totally cool winter stuff and NEVER get the change to wear it. Therefore: the stankboots.

    • MissAmynae

      Same thing happens in Austin. ‘cept its the fancy-schmancy “cowboy” boots and coochie-cutter jean shorts. (I say “cowboy” boots because to me, a cowboy boot is one that is suitable for cowboy work. My Daddy would have thrown me out of the barn if I showed up in some of the bedazzled things I see around here.)

      That said, they look cute. I mean…Its Coachella, this is better than what 3/4 of the other people wore.

  • Those are some ridiculous stankboots, for sure.

  • Io Vee

    To be brief: the boots do not go. They should.

  • i just want to lick him.

  • demidaemon

    Yes, those boots seem particularly atrocious. Not just from a smell-based perspective, but also from a style perspective. They are hideous and do not go with the outfit at all.

  • decormaven

    Those boots elicit a big hee haw from me. Suede boots with short shorts and a gardening hat.

  • lobsterlen

    Those boots don’t go with that outfit. Well honestly the only thing those boots go with is a walk down the gangplank.

  • lobsterlen

    What the hell has Jackson done to his fingernails? Painted them black and picked the polish off?

  • m0r0

    STANKBOOT?? Is that, “I’m wearing boots so ugly my poop don’t stank.” Or is it “I’m wearing boots so gross and ugly without socks and my feet really stank.” Trying to glean your meaning.

  • With the masses. Of the masses.

  • I am ALL OVER DK’s shorts, but those boots have got to go.

  • Head-to-toe H&M… and a crocodile Chanel bag that costs more than 6 months of my rent.

  • lalahartma

    Why the boots? WHY? Like the shorts, tho.

  • guest2visits

    This made me laugh. Luv the Coachella stinky-boot contest.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Why does she remind me of a really really naughty My Little Pony?

  • librarygrrl64

    Those boots completely overwhelm both her outfit and her body. Yuck.
