Fugae Kruger


Pretty In Pink will live forever. Not necessarily because of its enduring messages about life and cliques and men with feathered hair who wear leisure suits…

… but because as long as there are celebrities who want to wear aggressive raspberry lace in distracting and unflattering ways, Andie’s torso will go down in history like the Rudolph of fashion disasters: bright, impossible not to see, and blind to all the other reindeer standing behind him and rolling their eyes because he’s turned into an insufferable famewhore.

Never let the Paceyphiles claim I don’t care about their needs. I DO want to hose off his head, a little, maybe? Fortunately Diane has a shower curtain right there, so we can craft a waterproof environment.

    What Stefanie said, multiplied by four. On the dress….the overlay is a pretty color and an interesting pattern, so I might be on board if the skirt was the same length as the overlay. Maybe. But the hair — is it a ponytail? A soft bun at the base of her neck? If it’s the bun option, that’s much too Mary Todd Lincoln/Marmee March for me.

      I agree about the same length as the skirt thing. It could be pretty.

      Make big noise for Pacey! And yes, this is a major fail for DK – but so easily could have been a well played with that full length black fabric idea….

    I feel like it was just yesterday when I penned an impassioned ode to Diane Kruger, vowing to love her forever, no matter what she wore, because it would always be mysteriously fabulous.

    I eat my words! No! This is not lovely.

    If you hold the hose, I’ll scrub him clean. ;)

    I actually wouldn’t mind this if the black dress underneath was also floor-length and the styling was more relaxed.

      Ooooh yes…floor length. Maybe different shoes and yes, maybe less severe.

    I would totally put a bumper sticker on my car that read Honk If You Love Pacey …

    I don’t hate this as much as I should.
    But I totally hated the dress that Andie made to wear to the prom in Pretty in Pink.

    I would have loved it had the overlay stopped where the underlay stopped. As it is – GAH.

    Well, Pacey looks good (except maybe the hair). As for Diane… I could be on board with this if the lace was the same length as the underskirt– that would look cool. But as is? Yuck, no. Also not a fan of the hair with this look– they don’t go together.

      Diane is beautiful, but this hair is NOT working for her – anyone else think this also? Makes her head seem too wide (maybe). Anyway, this is the first time I have ever looked at her and thought “Huh, she is not giving great face today.”

    Enough of the sheer overlays already! If you want to show off your legs, show them. If not, cover them up. This trend is really, really annoying.

    But really, I’m just here to Honk!

    All she needs is a nice sharp pair of scissors to fix that disaster of a dress.

    This looks disturbingly like it wants to be lace harem pants in the second photo.

    His name is Joshua. Not everyone watched or cared about whatever that show was.

      Ditto Dallas, yet I’m pretty sure people can deal with it if we call Larry Hagman “JR.” It’s just a name. We’re not disrespecting him.

        I never watched the Dawson’s Creek, but I’m HOOKED on Fringe….yet I call him “Pacey” all the time. I think it’s endearing.

    Oh got me some JJ pics for my Thursday!!
    Diane -I just can’t even. It is like she lost a bet with Pacey or something.

    Why do I like it? I blame the Pacey. I also blame a different photo I saw where it wasn’t so “tight” looking. And I blame my hot pink jealousy of blondes who can wear it. (Or apparently can’t.)

    OMG Speaking of sheers and here we go again. NO MISS KRUGER NOT EVEN YOU LOOK GOOD IN THE SHEER STUFF. PLEASE GET OVER IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It’s Dad’s black t-shirt with little sis’s pink lace curtain wrapped around.

      I’m with vandalfan. That’s not a dress, it’s a men’s t-shirt with a big lace scarf* tied around it.

      *This is the kind version. The unkind version is “$2.50 worth of polyester lace off the JoAnn remnant table”.

    She takes chances, and it usually works. Beside, who cares, she is gorgeous and she has him.

    i actually love this. reply if u think im crazy, and it may just be the sun, but this is really pretty and feminine and the FIRST TIME i have liked the sheer trend that, like heather said, can go DIE.

      I would like it if the pink and black were closer in length. Maybe take the black down to just above her knee and the pink to just her knee….. Maybe take the pink all the way up to about an inch or two below the black. It’s the curtain thing that bugs me.
      I think it’s BEAUTIFUL lace….and I love love love a rich pink/raspberry mixed with black.

      I am really digging the black manicure and light light pink pedicure combo. I am so going to steal that.

    I should hate this – but I don’t somehow. I think she’s pulling it off. I doubt anyone else could.

    The way the lace isn’t bunchy is what I wish Penelope Cruz could have accomplished with her otherwise pretty dress.

    I rarely appreciate make-up, but this time–wow! Good cosmetics on her. And her hair is so shiny. See how I’m ignoring her dress? Joshua’s hair makes me sad. Of course there was the scary Pacey-Poof era …shudder.

    So, l will be so happy when this tacky lace over a mini skirt thing is done. It is so JoAnn Fabrics. Argggg!

    I’m not mad at the outfit… I think the beautiful hair & makeup + Pacey make up for its shortcomings!

    Usually I think Dianne is incredibly stylish wearing ‘garments’ that lesser mortals would look ridiculous or atrocious in. I actually didn’t believe it was Dianne from the first photo (until I saw her arms around her beloved) The hair is very much Marmee from Little women – and I am a pink hater from way back. Pink and black even worse…

    Haha! The fuck!? I thought the Krueg could do no wrong. I was incorrect in assuming that.

    I never would have placed the source of that lace so perfectly–it is Andie’s terrible prom dress lace. Until I read it here, I just thought it was some form of recycled bathroom do-it-yourself curtain from the late 1960′s, and that I’d see it some time in the near future, on an upcoming episode of Mad Men.

    Oh well, these two are dressed for an NHL Awards ceremony, so I can see how the look is appropriate for the occasion.

      In the sense that it is the sartorial equivalent of hockey hair.

    I’m glad there are a few here that like this, because I think I do, too. I may just be a sucker for Diane Kruger and pairing hot pink and black together though. It was my favorite color combo as a child in the 80′s and I still love it.

    Count me as another who likes this. She just wears clothes really well. It’s different and it’s not something I would try, but I like = )

    Her makeup is making her face look particularly pointy here though…

    When she gets it right, she looks good. When she gets it wrong, she gets it terribly wrong. This looks falls under the latter.

    If only it was just a mini-skirt I would jump on that.

    It’s probably bad when the further you scroll down, the more you’re wishing it was black pants with a pink lace overlay instead of a black miniskirt.

    on my monitor her black shirt looks like someone took the photoshop black “pen” and colored over what she was really wearing.
