Emma Roberts and Evan Peters Lunch in West Hollywood

Posted on May 01, 2014

Okay, fine. This isn’t a pap shot kind of moment and they’re clearly not dressed to show off some contractually obligated labels. We’ll be nice. It’s a struggle for us, but we’ll be nice.


Emma-Roberts-Evan-Peters-GOTS-Chloe-FPDBB-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)“American Horror Story’ stars Emma Roberts and Evan Peters grab some lunch together in West Hollywood, California. Emma Roberts is wearing Chloé ‘Susanna’ studded boots.

We can smell those boots from here.

Well, we tried to be nice. It was a struggle, but we tried. Seriously though, Em. Those boots? DO NOT GO. That dress (or whatever) would look cuter with a pair of drugstore flip-flops than it does with those boots. Wear them with black jeans and a CBGB t-shirt. And socks.

As for Evan, to quote Emily Blunt from The Devil Wears Prada, “THAT I can’t even talk about.”

    Why bother to be nice, she was arrested in canada for attacking her boyfriend in public and biting him. Amazing what can happen when you are outside the protective influence of the police in L.A. who never arrest celebs for horrific behavior.

    • melisaurus

      She had bruises on her too when she was arrested. They’re both abusive.

      • AthenaJ

        Were they on her face? If they were on her arms or shoulders they could be from someone like Evan or the cops trying to restrain her.

        • holla

          was it foreplay?

  • Danielle

    Look at these fucking hipsters.

    • Raspberry2012

      Right? I’d bet anything his wallet is made out of duct tape, and her cell phone case probably has one of those dumb “moustaches” on it.

          Also, you know: owls. They were a kind of charmingly old fashioned motif, once.

          • Sarah

            It is the irony of featuring them for their charming old fashioned-ness that did it. Poor owlses.

          • fursa_saida

            The poor, poor octopi paved that painful road for them.

          • Jacob Bowen

            Elephants are going to be the next animal.

          • formerlyAnon

            Is this based on early sightings, or were you lip reading over cocktails at the Top Secret Trend Setter’s Conference in Dubai last weekend?

          • Jacob Bowen

            Based on growing sightings over the past years…unfortunately (because I truly love elephants). My college friends are all slowly abandoning owls and jumping on the elephant bandwagon.

        • decormaven

          They are everywhere now, thanks to Pinterest.

          • Sarah

            I know it. What’s the true sign of ubiquity is that I get some of these extremely low-price/quality crappy catalogs with things like “Solar Frog Garden Statue” and “72” Americana Carpet Runner” and they are now arriving with pages of gaudily colored owl-themed coordinated bathroom sets, children’s comforters, ankle socks, and cast-resin owl home decor statuettes. HIDEOUS.

          • decormaven

            That’s a trend for you, moving at lightning speed. “There’s never an egg timer around when you need one.”

          • Sarah

            When factories in China know your trend, you should give it a damned rest, I’m thinking.

        • Raspberry2012

          From your lips to god’s ears.

      • Anna

        Ugh. I’m sure you’re totally spot-on about the duct tape wallet.

      • tallgirl1204

        Is that a thing? My husband has the same wallet he’s had since junior high, and it’s held together with duct tape. (Believe me, stronger people than I have tried to wrest it away from him and replace it…)— is this a thing? Can I tell my husband that it’s what all the popular kids do? Because if ANYTHING would stop him, thinking that his wallet was fashionable might be the thing to make it go away.

        • Liz

          Duct tape wallets are completely made out of duct tape. They’ve been a thing for a while, my son had one a girlfriend made for him a few years ago. Now, a wallet that is held together by duct tape is a different story, it shows he’s thrifty (?)

          • fursa_saida

            Yeah, duct tape everything was a big thing when I was in high school ten years or so ago. Possibly it’s just something kids go through when they think they’re being punk?

        • random_poster

          Tell him!

      • AthenaJ

        I am laughing so hard at this one right now… My husband received mustache-printed duct tape awhile back and wrapped his wallet in it. He also has grown a handlebar mustache, kid you not. Unfortunately it only receives praise and compliments from friends and strangers, which drown out my protests about it being effing annoying and he should shave the damn thing off. I constantly tease him about being ‘King of the Hipsters’ though the funny thing is he really doesn’t pay much attention to trends, he just comes up with this shit and then gets mad when he realizes a million other people are doing it too.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I really love her dress. But my first thought was “stank boot”.

    • Glam Dixie

      I think that’s going to most everyone’s first thought. And they’re ugly too.

    • Anna

      Could she be wearing no-show socks? NVM, she probably doesn’t think her precious tootsies could ever get rank.

      • Jessica Freeman

        I’m not so sure the whole debate is about whether or not anyone wears socks with their ankle boots, which I’m sure plenty of them do. It’s just the first thing we think of….and an age old thing around TLo.

        • Anna

          Ah, OK. I will say, an ankle boot contrasted with pale, bare skin is a bit hard on the eyes.

    • random_poster

      And $1270 stank boot, to boot!

    • Raspberry2012

      Yup, first thing that ran through my mind.

    • Same, on both counts! I would actually love to know where she got that dress. It probably would cost a couple months’ rent, but oh well.

  • StelledelMare

    While I agree that the boots don’t go (and they are pretty hideous), I will say that she may actually be wearing something over her feet in them but we just can’t tell. I have about 3 pairs of ankle boots and I always wear a pair of those thin “footies” because regular socks are too thick (not like the ones that you use to try on shoes, the higher quality ones that often have gel inserts at the heels). They are comfortable and greatly reduce/eliminate any chance of stank boot. I would never, ever go barefoot in any shoe that completely envelopes your foot because that’s just uncomfortable. But given how kinda sloppy she looks, I wouldn’t be surprised if she was indeed barefoot in them.

  • I defend the boots with the floral as street style. Not only do I see this everywhere in LA, I kind of like it. Especially with this return to the early 90’s (where downtown LA is regularly taken over by an army of whippersnappers in Doc Martens), I like that the floral/boot has been updated to ankle boots.

    That said…good lord, it was hot yesterday and I hope she was wearing socks.

    • I haven’t worn it since the 90s, but I loved it then too.

      I like her dress but I think she could have chosen a better ankle boot to go with it!

    • kmk05

      To be honest, that’s how I wear all my dresses in spring/summer (no way am I stepping anywhere with open shoes in London, and it’s never hotter than 21C). But I always ALWAYS wear socks, and it never occurred to me not to (until TLo’s stankboot). Wouldn’t it hurt your feet before you even started sweating?

    • formerlyAnon

      I always choose to believe they’re wearing short socks. Anything else would be soo un-comfy.

      But I prefer the full on towards-the-knee Doc Martin with the floral dress. These little ankle booties are kind of neither/nor for my tastes. Commit, ladies, if that toe stomping, ass kicking/girly contrast is what you want. I don’t much like it as a toned down hard/soft thing.

    • conniemd

      I love ankle boots. They are my apparel of choice in winter – always with ankle socks or knee highs. But I cannot imagine wearing anything heavy on my feet in summer. If you have to wear socks then you are defeating the purpose of escaping the heat and stank by wearing shoes that AIR OUT. I love sockless sandals in summer and boots with socks in winter. Simple really.

    • eight_of_nine

      I don’t mind the combination either. I would never, ever wear a floral dress, but I like the boots and I think the two items look cute together.

  • Betsy

    Dead roses

  • elizabethann1

    LOL TLo HATES the boots with summer dresses trend. Don’t look at me once in the summer. 😉

  • Janet B

    I know it’s been windy, but that hair is ridiculous.
    Why presume she’s not wearing socks? Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there.

    ( Her dress reminds me of an apron I used to own, except it didn’t have the sexy off-the-shoulder thing going on.)

  • Anna

    Ugh, Emma has that same arrogant bitch-face her aunt Julia possesses.

  • KinoEye

    They are possibly my least favorite celebrity couple. They’re neck in neck with Elderly Gay Windchime and his Midlife Crisis at the moment. I really liked Evan’s work in AHS — in the first season, there were moments where he was channeling Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange and I was living for it — but he comes off as such an insufferable, affected asshole in real life. She’s even worse.

    That said, I like the dress. Hate the boots. He’s schlumpy, but at least he’s not wearing a hair clip and dinosaur necklace this time. Sad that that’s considered an improvement.

    • Kayceed

      They do seem rather dour, despite being rich and young and famous.

  • Anna

    Didn’t Madonna wear those boots with some really ugly jeans fairly recently?

    Whenever I see this couple, I instantly hear Pulp’s Common People in my head, “laugh along with the common people, laugh along even though they’re laughing at you and the stupid things that you do.”

    • Grumpy Girl

      I never even know the words to the song (yes, I’m one of those people who never know the real words to songs–just a random phrase and the rest is lalalala), and yet that tune has been playing in my head at their pictures for the past few months, too. It is so appropriate . . .

      • Anna

        Yes, the whole “normcore” discussion made me think of it and now it’s all I hear every time I see them together.

  • LeelaST

    Who decided that guys don’t even have to make an effort anymore? Seriously, even when women get it horribly wrong they look a million times better.

  • Kent Roby

    He’s not wearing a torn Mickey Mouse t-shirt or any barrettes in his hair, so this sad mess is actually a slight improvement for him.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Does he have a habit of wearing barrettes? He’s not really on my radar.

      • Kent Roby

        A post on this site of this lovely couple showed him wearing the most god-awful contrived hipster mess that one can imagine; it was bad enough to be a parody.
        ETA: click his name above, and you’ll see them in Paris. Ridiculous.

        • FibonacciSequins

          Oh dear. Bahaha

  • FibonacciSequins

    Those boots are fugly. Pairing heavy leather boots with a light dress is such an LA cliche.

  • marlie

    I hate the boots, but otherwise, I think she looks cute. He looks like every single other dudbro in the universe.

  • juniper

    I’m heading to the Pantages in LA tomorrow (from paradise Santa Barbara, mind you) to see Book of Mormon for my birthday (yay!).
    It’s supposed to be in the 90s (not yay).

    I have cute wedge booties I wanted to wear but cant rid myself of the fear of stank boot. so wedge sandals it is. This post confirms it. She looks silly in that heat with those boots.

  • paginatrix

    They both look kind of sickly and unwashed. Is that a Thing now?

    • Kayceed

      It looks like a hangover brunch date.

  • Violentcello

    I do really love that dress.

  • Grumpy Girl

    She couldn’t brush her hair at all before she left the house? At all? That wierd crimpy crap near the top–that is not caused by a breeze. Uggggh.

    The sad thing is, I looked at the picture and the first reaction was “oooh, I want an iced coffee.”

  • Noah

    Blacks and browns, darlin’. Decide.

  • AzSportsGirl

    I want to.. nay HAVE to.. believe she is wearing at least anklet socks with those boots. Otherwise My gag-o-meter will max out.
    Hair. Wash it. It’s not that freaking hard. I’m beginning to wonder if she every does her own hair care? If it’s not being styled for her, she just .. doesn’t.

  • sherrietee

    I’m always curious why people assume there are no socks on. Could be anklets. Just a thought. Still ridiculous looking. But not necessarily stank.

    • BLauD

      My thoughts exactly

  • formerlyAnon

    Blatant prejudice alert: I hope Evan’s got some kind of access credential tucked under his tee shirt, because there it NO form of male jewelry that should hang that far down the torso on a chain that thin. It just looks like he’s a latchkey kid.

  • MilaXX

    This truly is real life so I’m not hating on Evan for looking like thousands of other 20 somethings walking around town. I don’t even mind Emma’s look but those boots have got to go. What happened to a simple pair of ballet flat? Even slip on keds would look better than those booties.

    • decormaven

      Heck, jellies would be better than those booties.

      • formerlyAnon

        Harsh. True, mind you. But harsh.

    • housefulofboys

      I agree on Evan, I have three 20 somethings who look like this pretty much every day of the year.
      ETA: I take it back, none of them have jeans that sorry looking or ill fitted. Holes – yes; sad/baggy – no.

  • Stella Zawistowski

    Oh god, I guess the one good thing about this endless winter was that we were spared stankboot for quite some time, since everyone had to wear socks or tights with their boots.

  • In_Stitches

    Does he have a flip phone? Is their commitment to the 90’s that strong?

    • the_valkyrie

      I think they’re car keys

  • sagecreek

    Love that dress, but those boots are dreadful.

  • In_Stitches

    LOOK AT HIS DAMN CALCULATOR WATCH. This is planned, like….not just, let’s do the 90’s planned, this is the team is on board, we’re going full 90’s chic PR crazery. Where do you get a calculator watch these days? EBay?

  • kim bunchalastnames

    love the dress, though. strappy sandals would have been nice with it.

  • SophieCollier

    Relax, boys. We girls have these things called footlet socks. She might be wearing some, so pretend she is and you’ll feel better about the whole “I can’t see any socks” thing.

    • BLauD

      That’s what I don’t get about flipping out about people being sockless. She may not be sockless. I wear only ankle socks and you can usually barely see them when I wear sneakers, so I just think she’s probably got something like that on.

    • Sly

      I too wear either ankle socks, or no show socks, especially for my vans. It’s not a big deal people.

    • willworktomorrow

      My thoughts exactly.

  • ashtangajunkie

    I hate them. I only ever encounter them when TLo features them, but my hatred is real and eternal.

  • strawberryshake

    Call me crazy but I like her outfit, including the boots

  • Boulderista

    She kind of comes across in all her pics like she just doesn’t like herself very much (I’ve never seen an interview, she may come across better when animated).this look seems too much like ‘I hate myself’ …either that or a monstrous hang over.

  • She looks like every 20 something hipster in East Nashville (wishes it was Brooklyn).

  • JeanProuvaire

    They both just look so sad and stinky.

  • Jacob Bowen

    He looks like my dad going to work as a construction worker in the 90’s. That is NOT A COMPLIMENT!

  • quiltrx

    In all fairness, she COULD have on little anklet socks. But I bet she doesn’t. Those booties would indeed be very cute with jeans.
    He looks like a useless sack of crap. Which I assume he is.

  • Brian G. Cox

    So the humidity barely made it into double digits, but it’s was close to swelter-eight degrees in LA today. There’s no way those boots will ever air out enough.

  • AutumnInNY

    I think I had those boots….in 1984. Are they back now? is this a thing or just something a stylist talked her into? Hope not.

  • Angela

    Now, that’s a happy couple if I ever saw one.

  • JynxTheCat

    They look like junkies headed to brunch to hit up the rents for score money
