Fug or Fab: Sienna Miller


I’ve been staring at this dress for twenty minutes and drawling a blank so large she could climb into it and disappear.

I can’t tell if the skirt has a tie on it, or just… a funky fold in front of her left leg, or what, exactly. And the top kind of looks like she started editing the dress WHILE it was on her body, taking one sleeve and tucking it in under her armpit and then fashioning a dickey out of panty hose. She’s certainly SELLING it better than I expected, but its always disconcerting when you’re staring at someone and wondering if the dress is being built on her AS WE SPEAK by an invisible fairy godmother and/or changing midstream due to the actions of her child who just arrived here in a Prius with a flux capacitor in it, and accidentally tap-danced on the space-time continuum.

Fug Madness Alumna: Aubrey O’Day (With Bonus Katie Price)


Every so often, our former champ rears her head around town.

Aubrey O'Day

For a long time I thought she was going to be the Katie Price of the U.S. I mean, this girl used to dye her dog to match her outfits. But now she’s back to Basic Tacky, and I’m almost disappointed, because at least shooting for full Katie Price would give her a point of view beyond Paris Hilton At A Deep, Deep Discount. Case in point:

Doesn’t she want to stay home in her yoga pants right about now? That said, as ever, this is a LOT of cute Normal Running Around Town clothing, right here. I want…like sixty percent of it.

GFY Giveaway: PAPER LOVE by Sarah Wildman


freaky-fug-friday

Hello, gentle readers. It’s time for another giveaway, and I suspect and believe that this one will be right up your street. It is extremely romantic and fascinating:

paperlovecover

THE PRIZE: We have five autographed copies of PAPER LOVE to give away! Let Barnes & Noble tell you more:

Years after her grandfather’s death, journalist Sarah Wildman stumbled upon a cache of his letters in a file labeled “Correspondence: Patients A–G.” What she found inside weren’t dry medical histories; instead what was written opened a path into the destroyed world that was her family’s prewar Vienna. One woman’s letters stood out: those from Valy—Valerie Scheftel.   Her grandfather’s lover who had remained behind when he fled Europe six months after the Nazis annexed Austria.

Valy’s name wasn’t unknown to her—Wildman had once asked her grandmother about a dark-haired young woman whose images she found in an old photo album. “She was your grandfather’s true love,” her grandmother said at the time, and refused any other questions. But now, with the help of the letters, Wildman started to piece together Valy’s story. They revealed a woman desperate to escape and  clinging to the memory of a love that defined her years of freedom.

Obsessed with Valy’s story, Wildman began a quest that lasted years and spanned continents. She discovered, to her shock, an entire world of other people searching for the same woman. On in the course of  discovering  Valy’s ultimate fate, she was forced to reexamine the story of her grandfather’s triumphant escape and how this history fit within her own life and in the process, she rescues a life seemingly lost to history.

THE TASK: I shall be picking the winner at random, but please comment and tell us the book you’d take with you if you had to flee (for whatever reason) and could bring but one.

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Monday. (US and Canada residents only, unfortunately.) FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, (a) I’m very glad you’re here and (b) the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you.
