SAG Awards Fug Carpet: Susan Sarandon in Max Mara


I hope they’d met before this. Or do I?

SAG Awards Fug Carpet: Julianne Moore in Givenchy


Emma Stone once wore a slightly more gold version of this greenish glittery hue, and I didn’t personally love it on HER, either. An amendment to the Redheads In Green rule might be, “As long as your green doesn’t look like what asparagus does to urine.” Not that she can’t carry it, but it’s not a very relaxing viewing experience for me.

SAG Awards Mostly Well Played: Laverne Cox in Prabal Gurung


This is not as big a hit for me as her last two awards gowns were — I think I’d rank the Emmys Calvin Klein first, then her Globes gown, then this one, and I actually like this less the longer I look at it. But she is the kind of person who can elevate almost anything, and that’s what is carrying the day.

SAG Awards Fug or Fab Carpet: Nicole Kidman in Gucci


I just keep thinking of this as Gucci’s clown collection.

It’s from the same line that yielded Dakota Johnson’s, and some of you liked that better than I did. I suspect this entire vision board is simply not my particular flavor of gum. I can start with the good: her hair, lush and full; her accessories; her smile; her carriage; her necklace, even sitting a tad low; her red carpet interview, in which she was very charming. I hope she and Keith Urban are for real (an absurd thing to say about a couple, except it’s Hollywood, where it’s almost a matter of course that people engage in bizarre role-playing with their own lives for insane lengths of time).

But I keep landing on it being too… silly. A bit Cheap and Cheerful, Frankly Fake, or whatever else you’d call something that’s trying to have the look of luxury but can’t hide that it was designed by a Vegas costumer who dreams of being in a Big Top having knives thrown at her by a man in a heavily waxed mustache that curls at the tips. That aesthetic, at the very least, I’d generally leave for the Grammys.

SAG Awards Fug or Fine Carpet: Brie Larson in Versace


Brie just flew in from Australia on Saturday morning, then picked out this dress and had to rally herself to get to the SAGs that night. I think she may have figured out on the fly that it wasn’t the best choice.

Fug or Fine: Toni Collette


Did we know Toni is a redhead now?

I am not in love with this dress — it looks a little it’s made of lining, and the cut is tediously prairie; the belt is trying, at least? — but I DO think the hair is fabulous. If only she could talk SWINTON back to red. Maybe we need a Council of Gingers to handle such matters. Prince Harry would, obviously, be the party planner.

What the Fug: Dakota Johnson in Gucci


We forgot to post this when it first happened on The Tonight Show, but it’s too bananas to let slide any further. Behold, what happens when you beg an actress over and over again to embrace color:

It’s like a mixture of a cartoon present, this Reem Acra show, and a store that sells the sort of dolls whose eyes follow you no matter where you are. Her nose has been well and truly thumbed at us all.
