Fugs and Fabs: Patterns at the Independent Spirit Awards


We covered a couple folks from this during the Oscars — like what Cate Blanchett wore — but so very many more celebs went to the Independent Spirits, an awards show that was meant to be so casual that people might bike to it, but which is steadily turning up the fashion volume to, oh, MTV levels at least.

BRIT Awards Fug Carpet: Ellie Goulding in Alberta Ferretti


Ellie wore an Alberta Ferretti last night at the Elle Style Awards, and this feels like its demi-nude Coachella cousin:

Boob-covering motif? Check. Sheer in parts? Check. Visible panties? Check. I can’t figure out why she’d wear two gowns by the same designer with such a kinship, and SO close together, but then, it’s not like wearing just ONE of them would have made either frock suddenly attractive. I thought she’d chipped herself out of her see-through style rut, but I guess it runs deeper than I thought. We may need to tunnel in to rescue her, which means… I’m probably going to go get a beer instead and just leave her for awhile, because she did it to herself.

And in one sense, this is her pushing back in the other direction from that Oscar post-party outfit, given that she’s wearing a jumpsuit that also has its own skirt — as if she’s double-bagging herself after having merely quarter-bagged it in L.A. But it’s still a see-through jumpsuit and an equally translucent skirt, so even though the gentle gold sparkles are alluring, the effect is Same As It Ever Was. Aren’t you bored of rolling the Bits Dice to see which ones you show us today, Rita?

Fugs and Fabs: The Rest of the Elle Style Awards


Gwen Christie from Game of Thrones may not be the most famous person in this slideshow, but HOW COULD I NOT LEAD WITH THAT OUTFIT? She looks like a Hogwarts professor at the staff holiday party, hoping Snape will catch her eye and agree that she is his present, like, COME ON, what more can she do? YOUR CRUSH IS GONE, SEVERUS. MOVE ON.

Oscars 2015: Fug Nation’s Worst-Dressed


And, the worst-dressed. Same rules apply as with best-dressed: All the contenders are in one slideshow, but the telecast and post-parties are split up in the polls. Which are after the jump, because: long. Judge, then convict.
