Emmy Rossum in Brentwood

Posted on August 22, 2013

We need a palate-cleanser after that last post, darlings. Miss Emmy shall be our amuse-bouche of the day.


Emmy Rossum stops for a drink at Starbucks while out and about in Brentwood, California.

Attagirl. Way to do the chic, clean, cazh thing to perfection. Love the blouse and the jacket (even if the sloppy tuck is making our eyelids twitch).

Celebs are always slightly off the season. She’s dressed like it’s October. In October, she’ll be dressing like it’s February. In February, she’ll be dressing like it’s June. Such is stardom. Part of it has to do with stylists and stars wanting to be seen in the very latest clothing, fresh off the runways, which then fuels a this-is-the-way-it’s-done conformity among them. To them, it’s perfectly normal to dress like it’s fall in summer and like it’s summer in winter.

Not that this looks so weird or anything. We’re sure it was weather-appropriate for Brentwood, but it definitely feels like more of a fall look, especially with the boots. Still, she looks super-cute.

    J’adore the movement pictures where the sloppy tuck is much easier to ignore. She is adorable and chic.

  • Jacquelyn

    Her hair in the second photo is so lovely!

    • Karen Belgrad

      I love the fact that celebrities come equipped with personal wind machines!

    • Rand Ortega

      Bouncin’ & behavin’!

  • She looks gorgeous. I hated her for a long time b/c of the atrocity that was the Phantom of the Opera movie. However, I finally watched Shameless, and she is divine.

    • JasmineAM

      I loved that movie when I was a kid. However, I didn’t like Gerard Butler as Erik/Phantom.

      • Nicole C

        OMG, isn’t he terribly awesome??? If you haven’t, check out Will Farrell as the Phantom on Letterman. I’d love if they could somehow cut him into that version because it wouldn’t take anything away.

    • Stacy Feng

      I cannot watch that movie, I hurl things at the TV. It’s my favorite musical, and they butchered it. Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber was involved, and he let them butcher it.

      • Exactly. My friends and I were so excited when we heard it was coming out. Then we were nearly kicked out of the theater because we were laughing so hard at the trainwreck on the screen.

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    from the wast up classy and chic, and from the waist down a little kardashian don’t you think?

    • mlle

      Nah, needs more leopard print or unflattering-but-trendy detailing to be Kardashian. They don’t have a monopoly on jeans tucked into boots.

      • marlie

        And the jeans would have to be 1 or 2 sizes smaller and bedazzled to fall into Kardashian territory.

        • mlle

          I think you mean enKrusted with jewels…

          • Jacob Bowen

            OH MY GOD. I almost peed…that was PERFECT.

      • Monzerrat Ontiveros

        you’re right, Emily is doing the boots-over-jeans classier than the Kardashian way…. Still this is their signature look…

  • mlle

    This is adorable. I want all of it.

    • Rhonda Shore

      I want that shirt!!!

  • LongTall_Sally

    Awwww! She lost her purse somewhere! I hope she finds it!

    • mlle

      Good catch!

    • tereliz

      I stole it. 🙂

  • Emily Smith

    My feet are sweating just looking at those boots but where I am it’s 85 and 90% humidity right now…

  • Adrianna Grężak

    wind in the hair! wind in the hair!

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Oh, just adorable! Seriously cute, even if it is out of season.

  • Pantene commercial.

  • marlie

    I know that the weather changes from region to region, but this still reads as “FALL” to me. Still… I’m going to rock this look SO hard in about 2 months. (She looks fabulous, and I want those boots.)

    • mlle

      Looking at California stars baffles me sometimes, so I’ve just decided that the lack of distinct seasons means it’s every season all at once.

    • getouttadodge

      Agreed. I purposely pack away all my fantastic boots until Sept. As much as I am dying to wear them, I must adhere to seasonal dressing! (Mainly because it gives me something to look forward to, and who like stank boot in August?)

    • elizonthelam

      It’s still in the high 80s/low 90s her in SoCal. I frequently defend the wearing of scarves and other warming clothes here, but i’m melting at the thought of that much clothes in this weather. Totally a great look—that should be put back in the closet until November.

      • marlie

        As someone who works in an office with the AC thermostat set to “arctic,” I understand sweaters and scarves and even light jackets even in the summer, but I still try to pair those items with clothes that seem “summery” otherwise.

  • tereliz

    Love the jacket! Perfect with those boots. She does casual so well.

  • Meg0GayGuys6

    “Ya know, I had a grape 4 hours ago, so I better split this with you.”… “Well, it is amoooosing”

    Man! Two Friends references in two days! We’re on a roll!

    She looks fanfuckingfastic, btw 🙂

  • MilaXX

    That will look really cute in 2 mths

    • mjude

      exactly, not in the hot & humid conditions in my city.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I think I’d like it better without the blazer. It looks just a bit heavy for me in late August.

  • filmcricket

    Very chic. She’s making me long for orange leaves, crisp air, and the smell of wood smoke.

  • SugarSnap108

    Yes, it’s a weird choice for August. But she looks so fabulous. I want everything she’s wearing (and also her face, hair and body).

  • gubblebumm

    once school starts, its fall, except of course in san francisco, where its summer….

  • elemspbee

    Depending on what time this was, and it if was yesterday, it was in the low 90s in LA.

    • DTLAFamilies

      I was about to say I’m in Los Angeles and it’s been freakin’ hot all week. This outfit is insane.

  • stubbornthoughts

    Girl crush. Also, this solidifies the fact that I’m gonna need to get me some blazers for the fall.

  • lehen

    it is freaking 90 outside on my side of the country. this is ridiculous.

  • AnnaleighBelle

    Amuse-bouche? You just made me miss Hannibal. Next season can come quickly enough!

  • kimmeister

    I love the blazer EXCEPT for the fact that it has no closure on it. I’ve declined to buy several cute ones lately for that very reason.

  • ErmengardeGreen

    It’s true about celebrities and weather, but also the “seasons” are different out here — the summer is often colder than the fall, even in LA.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    She looks so cute and comfortable that I’m inspired to go out and have a look at the Fall fashions.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    This reminds me of wanting to wear my new fall clothes as soon as school started back…in 90+ degree August. I was always so sad that I couldn’t wear the cute new sweater for another month or two.

    As for this outfit, very cute, but I don’t like the lapel thing just hanging there. Makes it look a bit like a chic ringmaster coat.

  • Joan Wilder

    Funny thing is, it’s been cold all summer here and now it’s beach days. She could have warn this in July and I would have understood.

  • Imasewsure

    Brentwood is just as hot as the rest of LA but she still looks cute. Plus I’m assuming that people with zero body fat need layers year round (or at least they don’t cook like the rest of us)

  • Heather

    LIke October in NY, specifically. I can’t imagine those boots with jeans in LA any time of the year.

  • Ashley Ellen Wilson

    Uh I want that jacket!!

  • Victoria Anzalone

    Daytime WERQ, if you ask me. She looks the way I feel when I’m having an awesome hair day and wearing a new outfit. I bet she has her own soundtrack following her around.

  • fungstyle

    Must have those boots! Anyone know who makes them?

  • flamingoNW

    Well, it’s pretty hot this week in So Cal, so I’m sure those boots were nice and sweaty….

  • Brittany Knupper

    Those boots are gorgeous, but I live in LA and it is still too damn hot. My feet are sweating just looking at them.

  • newleaf1

    Is anyone else hearing the theme music from the “Charlie” commercial from the 70’s upon seeing these shots?

  • Stella Zawistowski


  • Just Me

    Look at that Kate Middleton before she was Cathy Cambridge realness!

  • She looks completely adorable, and if that really is weather appropriate in LA right now I’m sick with envy.

  • decormaven

    She looks cool and confident, which must be a heck of a task in August weather, no matter the geographic location.

  • Florence Whytingale


  • formerlyAnon

    She does look “super-cute.” And it’s not [all] riding on her personal good looks.

  • Trisha26

    Unless celebs don’t perspire (and knowing them, they don’t) this is totally inappropriate for August in LA. We’re just getting to our warm weather – it was at least 70 F if not 80 when this was taken. Cute though.

  • Pterodactyl111

    This outfit makes me wish it was fall. Too bad I live in the South.

  • bingo

    she looks super cute, because she is. what a gamine smile.

  • PeaceBang

    Love this! Blue and black, so chic. And I love when she steps off the harsh lippy.

  • Aaminah Khan

    This looks a lot like the outfits I wear out during fall and winter, so naturally, I love it.

  • kathrineb

    Not very exciting but it’s clean and pretty.

  • siao

    I’ll have what she’s having.

  • MissHellDial

    I want this outfit and I’m pretty sure it wants me back.
