Well Enough Played: Anna Kendrick in Temperley London


My objection to her shoes is obvious:

Anna Kendrick arrives at "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' in NYC, wearing a blue eyelet dress

She’s been really making the rounds for Into the Woods – I thought they’d put the heavy lifting onto Emily Blunt (Meryl’s too famous to need to plug anything), but I guess it makes sense. After all, she’s an Oscar nominee and everyone loved Pitch Perfect, and I imagine the overlap in the Venn diagram of People Who Care About Those Things is probably the people who are into that movie. And this is…fine, right? It’s good! It’s cute! it’s totally unobjectionable! Keep up the good work!

Mostly Well Played, Emma Stone


She wears a lot of rings on her Engagement Ring Finger. I almost started a totally unfounded rumor that she and Garfy were making it official (because I know you care, Emma, if that were to happen, I would to APPROVE). Let’s celebrate my fiction with giant scarves and woolen hats (Emma Stone loves herself some cozy knitwear, as you will soon see.)

Recent Fugs or Fabs: Reese Witherspoon

As we enter into The Dark Time for Celebrity Events — I saw a bunch of paparazzi snaps called, “A CAR ON FIRE IN NEW YORK CITY” today, like…a car is not a celebrity, generally speaking  — I’d like to thank Reese Witherspoon for her awards season campaign, because it’s getting her out of the house. Your hustle is helping me, Reese. Keep it up.

Recent Fugs, Fabs, and WTFs: Lady Gaga

I like her so much more now that she’s not wearing groceries.

Fug the Cover: Nicole Kidman on Elle, January 2015

I like you, Elle. You’re a good magazine. Which is why it pains me to tell you this: Today you are a COVER of LIES:


Nicole is NOT rocking those Dior shorts. And you should NOT try to rock them yourselves. They are hideous. Her abdomen looks like a Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket of yore, and the only rocking of them that ought to be done is burying them under one.

She also has treadmill hair. It’s crispy there, and it’s crispy here:

see what else she is


Fug or Fab: Krysten Ritter in J. Mendel


The magpie in me wants to declare this a win immediately.

Krysten Ritter Big Eyes New York premiere

The lipstick is lovely with her skin, and of course, Shiny Gold Skirt rarely runs afoul with me. The whole thing is very eye-catching without appearing to arm-wrestle the spotlight away from Amy Adams. But, of course, the longer I look at it, the more I pick, pick, pick, like it’s one of those tiny pimples that won’t quite come to the surface. For instance, do the straps on the shoes come too close to the hem, in a Them’s Fighting Words kind of way? Where is the bracelet? And do we even like the bodice that much in close-up?

and thus we should SEE the close-up
