Diane Kruger in SoHo

Posted on June 17, 2013

What are we supposed to be looking at here, Diane? What?


Diane Kruger having lunch at Serafina restaurant at SoHo in New York City.

Chloé Arrow Tank. Balmain X Aurélie Bidermann Pierre Bag. Chanel Diamante Jelly Sandal.

Is it your admirably taut belly? Your light-wash jeans? Your sparkley sandals? WHAT IS YOUR SHIRT POINTING AT, DIANE KRUGER? It’s driving us a little nuts.

Those sandals look like they would be incredibly irritating to wear. Actually, this whole outfit looks like it would be a pain in the ass in so many ways. We realize a star has to be picture-ready at all times, but this is pretty damn attention-seeking for LUNCH, of all things.

Can you imagine eating in that top?

      I have toe diamonds! I’m a star!

      • Really. i’m so effing rich I have 100 karat diamonds on my jellies, betches.

        • DebbieLovesShoes

          Omagosh Kiltdntiltd you always make me laugh.

    • alyce1213

      Hey Everyone, These Are My Ovaries!

      • So, this is her slyly promoting her response to the Hey Girl thing.

        Soon we will be seeing Hey Everyone memes everywhere, and a Hey Everyone book, just like Ryan Gosling’s.

      • drdarke

        No, @alyce1213:disqus – she doesn’t want to emphasize those! Because if she does, any baby she and Peter Josh have might end up being abducted into the Red Dimension….

      “I can eat lunch and still have a flat tummy!”

  • Patricia Gillett

    i am so over her obsession with midriff-baring tops.

    • Lola Channing


  • majorbedhead

    Chanel makes jelly sandals. Excuse me while I go weep in the corner.

    • And they are very EXPENSIVE Chanel Jelly sandals, too.
      Weep away, m’dear. I will join you.

    • Cathy S

      I was thinking something like that. Now you can get $2 jelly sandals that cost a bazillion dollars! This is an excellent use of your money.

      • MemHey

        Who will be the first to create the diy tutorial for these? Who will pin it to their Pinterest board?

        ETA: Come to think of it, the top could be easily diy’d with a yard or two of Wal-Mart sequin trim…

    • Jaeda Laurez

      Yay! Thousand dollar jellies that make your feet smell like Tupperware left on a hot stove just like the 3 dollar Gold Circle joints of my childhood.

    • norseofcourse


  • Jen

    This is an outfit in which you could never forget to zip your fly.

  • kayleymaybe

    The words “Chanel Diamante Jelly Sandal” made me throw up in my mouth a little bit.

    • wisdomy

      Uh huh.

  • Cameron Turner

    I think she looks fresh and beautiful

  • Kimmu

    I….think this is pretty cute. Of course, I also own a similarly shaped loose belly exposing tank top and enjoy wearing it in the summer and even while eating, so I guess there is no accounting for my taste.

  • Fordzo

    I can’t imagine sitting in that outfit. Between the tight pants and the belly shirt, it wouldn’t be pretty. (For me – I’m sure she’s stunning whether she is sitting or standing or squatting.)

  • Heather

    Perhaps we’re meant to admire her pretty summer pedicure?

    I would like jelly shoes to go away. They always make me think of Jeff Lebowski.

    Cute jeans, tho.

  • Like she eats.

    • eowyn_of_rohan


  • hughman

    They’re like suspenders for gay Tour Guides.

    • Oh Hughman, you’ve done it again. Love this.

      • DebbieLovesShoes

        Absolutely agree. Hughman wins this one.

    • Little_Olive

      LOL. For real.

      The City of NY should definitely make that the official shirt.

      • YoungSally

        Oh Please NO!! I can’t even imagine all the guys for all the doubledecker bus tours wearing that…unless of course they wear spandex hot pants as well.

  • SophiaPehawkins

    She looks like she’s wearing her little sister’s clothes. Everything is too small.

    • RebeccaKW

      That was my thought, too. That length of pant always just looks high-water to me, rather than cropped. Combined with how tight they are and the short shirt, she looks like her clothes shrunk in the wash.

  • Lisa Utter

    It took me a minute to realize that she’s not wearing a pink hat in that third picture. It’s a man’s head, which makes it kinda creepy.

    • Marcella

      Thank you! I looked and looked at the picture trying to figure out her strange hat. I’m glad I’m not the only one that saw it.

  • GorgeousThings

    I can’t wear really open shoes in NY – the stuff on the sidewalks can be pretty skeevy. And if I ever start wearing tops with arrows pointing at my ovaries please, someone, smack some sense into me?

  • Vanja

    Can you imagine eating in that top?
    Sure I can. I can also imagine all the stains on it afterwards. *no white for me*

  • zenobar

    Hey everyone, check my visible hipbones!

    My God, the paroxysms of self-conscious discomfort that eating a meal in this outfit would send me into. Between the braless, too-short shirt and the terrifying overspill of muffin top – what a wretched, wretched meal that would be.

    “Does anyone mind if I lie down here under the table and not eat? It’s the only moderately flattering position I can think of in this getup.”

    • DebbieLovesShoes

      hahahaha. So funny.

  • Lori

    Weren’t there rumors going around a little while ago about her being pregnant? If I’m remembering that correctly then the shirt would seem to be saying, “Not gestating!”.

    • Little_Olive

      It’s the anti-“Arrow pointing to baby bump” shirt (remember the ones Brit Brit used to wear?).

      Like: “Look down there, where all the magic happens! whithout babymaking!”

  • Mrs. Julien

    I would very much like to know what Chanel jelly sandals cost. I’m guessing a mark up of 418,263% myself.

    • I found some on EBay for 100 bucks. HILARIOUS.

      • Mrs. Julien

        Thanks! I spent some time trying to track them down.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    I had bare midriff tops. Even if I did, that one shows far too much unless she’s doing a 1980s retrospective.

  • MilaXX

    I hate the shirt on principle. If it was a cropped, white top, I’d have no problem with it. I saw those shoes at Nordstrom rack and I can”t say whether they would be annoying to wear, but I cannot see myself paying for what is basically a piece of plastic. The cheapest I have seen any of the new jelly shoes is $35

    • alyce1213

      The Chanel jellies (various styles) are about $300-500.

      • MilaXX

        Even worse.

  • TheAmericaness

    That is the dumbest top I’ve ever seen….and I was alive in the 80’s.

  • Celeste

    I just can’t wrap my head around the phrase “Chanel Jelly Sandals”. It’s just… Is oxymoronic a word?

    • It sure is, and you get props for using it!

      • Celeste


  • joanna dash

    I love everything she’s wearing. She looks fresh and cute!

  • frannyprof

    Chanel jelly sandals. Ugh.

  • plinkiedoodle

    Of course, she’s meeting Lea Michele for lunch!

  • Little_Olive

    I can’t imagine


    hell, anything but dieting, in that ensemble.

    But I have to say, despite that, the arrows and the Chanel Jelly Sandals (hahahahaha), she looks so breezy I’m not even annoyed.

    • ashtangajunkie

      I have to laugh at the idea of an outfit that can only be worn for dieting. You nailed it.

  • ChristySchiff

    “Diamante Jelly Sandal” is not something I expect to read next to the word “Chanel.”

  • bgrayduck

    Ok… I’m really stuck on the shoes. The ONLY thing keeping them on the front of your foot is that “diamante” button??? So when they get caught on something and that “diamante” button pulls through your toes which can’t be comfortable, and then you would promptly step on it?? Um…… I don’t get it.

  • kittenwithaquip

    I didn’t realize she actually eats. I thought she just lived on rarefied air.

  • kimmeister

    What an unflattering top. It obscures the small part of her waist and just turn her torso into a box.

  • girliecue

    Those arrows are pointless.

  • iCouture

    More importantly…..WHOOOO is the hottie sitting down, checking things out?
    Hit me up boo!

  • marlie

    I have issues with this whole outfit, but I still think she looks way better in her “on the street” garb than on the red carpet.

  • Sunraya

    I am always amazed at the “Man on the Street” pictures just how ordinary most of these “gorgeous” people are. I think Kruger is breathtaking on the red carpet,but in normal clothes and make-up, she’s just a pretty woman. I can only think of a few exceptions: Theron, Heidi klum, can’t think of anyone else who looks better than the girl at Starbucks who serves me coffee every afternoon. The power of make-up!

    • Gwyndall

      Funny, I thought she looks gorgeous without makeup… one of the few celebs for whom less IS more. She always bugs me a little, but I found her fresh and lovely here.

      • Sunraya

        Sure, she is pretty, but not traffic stopping. I remember seeing pictures of Cindy Crawford without make-up, and she was just ordinary looking and tall.

  • alyce1213

    Nothing to do with her outfit, but there is no Serafina in SoHo (there used to be one near NYU). Maybe she’s in the meatpacking district.

  • Mary Lauer

    Who knew Chanel made JELLIES?!?!

    • Candigirl1968

      They’ve had em for a while, and they are pretty darned comfy.

  • crash1212

    Like: Sunglasses, bag, jeans. Detest: Shirt, sandals. Oh…hair’s cute, too.

  • Naomi

    Forget Diane Kruger. I don’t care about Diane Kruger. I’m stuck on the t-shirt model. Is it just me, or is her face off-center? I keep tilting my head trying to make it make sense.

  • Gloriana Reginata

    I must be the only one here that loves the look of those sandals, but I can’t help my toes clenching at the thought of hanging on tight enough to keep them in place.

    • GillianHolroyd

      Toes clenching *and* wary of a sudden gust of wind to turn that top inside out.

  • Miss WKS

    The arrows are showin’ her where her boobs are gonna be in 30 years….

  • when i first saw that shot with her standing in front of that bald guy, i thought she was wearing a hat. disorienting…

    those shoes are strange, sort of like giant stud earrings for your toes. interesting. and re: eating in that top, i’d have a napkin stuffed between my boobs from the get-go.

    • Qitkat

      Lol. I almost posted the same thing about the “hat.” I did a double take.

  • lrhg

    I was so sure from the front page that these were going to be overalls (which are apparently A THING now). I’m so relieved that it is not I can’t judge it accurately besides the basics of “Thank God It’s Not Overalls (and Those Shoes are Horrible)”.

  • nancymae

    Chanel makes jellies?! Are jelles making a comeback?? Geez, god help us.

  • Danielle L

    Good GOD I want those jelly sandals.

  • Imasewsure

    I like the jeans, the bag and everything above the neck but the rest is just stupid

  • jmorino08

    “Can you imagine eating in that top?”

    …or sitting in those jeans?!?

  • The hell with eating in that top, how the hell do you sit in those jeans?

  • Lola Channing

    tight jeans, belly ho top and halterless sandals: perfect for a hot, muggy day in NYC and lunch at Shake Shack.

  • Noelle

    Seriously, that shirt is just plain STUPID. And Chanel jellies?? This is why they hate us…

    • DuBey2

      Chanel making jellies is just a sad sad day. I can’t with it. Truly bummed.

  • steeg of their own

    She looks better than the model in all her pictures, I call that a win. Honestly the top doesn’t look that difficult to move in. If you’re as skinny as she is, then it’s made of fabric that will fall well pretty much no matter what you do in it. If I looked like her, I’d wear this outfit in a heartbeat.

  • demidaemon

    My first thought was, “It must be laundry day at the Kruger/Pacey residence.” That’s the only reasoning I could come up with for this travesty of a half-outfit.

  • nannypoo

    My ovaries are down there.

  • ankali

    I think she looks adorable, but utterly unsuited for real life. Also, anyone else would look ridiculous in this (I’M LOOKING AT YOU, GOOP).

  • littlemissstrange

    No one should have arrows going down their tits. Not a flattering look.

    And Dear GOD. Those sandals. I have no words to express my disgust.

  • Aurumgirl

    No matter what it all cost, she still looks like she’s doing her laundry and wearing the only clean rags she could find.

  • MaggieMae

    I intensely dislike the top. I don’t care how much it cost, it looks like something cheap & tacky you’d find at a low rent store. My main complaint with Kruger is her style choices bounce all over, and I dislike many of them. She’s the girl with a beret and cute dress in Paris. She’s the girl with 2 tigers nursing on her sweater. She’s in a mid-riff top at odd moments. She’s wearing something “different” (just to be different?) on the RC instead of something lovely. Blech!

    Now I’m cranky.

  • Lindsey Romain

    One gust of wind and those arrows would be pointing at something mighty different.

  • CeeQ

    Her crotch and toes alternately, depending on which way the wind is blowing…

  • bellafigura1

    I am over the moon for the bag in red. Gorgeous.
