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:

What the Fug: Miley Cyrus

I feel like we’ve been heading toward this for a while, and it’s finally here.

Fugs and Fabs: Various Paleyfests

We need to discuss Gotham. I’ve seen three of the five episodes, I think, and I can’t say I particularly enjoy it. But Jada seems to be having fun? My primary objection is that, at its heart, it’s exhausting to watch a show about how Jim Gordon will turn out to be a totally ineffectual detective because Gotham is so jacked up on crime — with villains that, per this show, have been around in various forms for like twenty years — that a man actually decides to turn into a rubberized bat to fix it. So that makes it hard to watch. It’s like Ziggy: The Show. We know Jim Gordon will never truly win.

Unimaginatively Played, Olivia Munn

I have run through a hundred potential angles on this thing, and all I keep coming back to is that showing up at a ballet opening as the black swan is SO lazy and boring.

Olivia Munn

Wear this to the VMAs if you want. Wear it to the premiere of the third season of The Newsroom that somehow exists even though nobody was clamoring for it. Wear it to a Natalie Portman-themed Halloween party, and then wear it to bed in the hopes that you will win an Oscar by osmosis. Whatever you need to do. But this is the ballet. Old ladies will be there in, like, Carolina Herrera suits and ball gowns. Blow it out with something big and dramatic, if you want, but it’s just weird to me to dress for the ballet as if you’re in a ballet. Which, in this case, is a little like Swan Lake mated with Clan of the Cave Bear.

Fug the Show: The Good Wife Power Suit Ranking, season 6, episode 5

I never thought I would say this in a Good Wife recap, but: Stay tuned for the penguin in a top hat. (Scandal, though… I mean, aren’t we ALL just waiting for one to turn up there?)

14. Cary and Taye Diggs

Presumably they’re resting Matt Czurchy because of all the criminal trial stuff he has coming up, so to make up for all that future frowning, they let Kalinda spend a lot of time on-camera worshiping his male form with her mouth.


The only other thing he does is get suspicious of her commitment to him, which is correct. As for Taye:


He is Alicia’s co-counsel, and I think he’s JUST bored enough that he’s messing with us by wearing the grey suit with a black vest and a yellow tie, like a bumblebee in a winter coat.


But then he serves up some soothing lavender. It’s probably overkill, frankly — we are already looking, I promise; our eyes don’t need HELP moving toward him, and that’s a lot of Stuff. But on the other hand, if you aren’t giving Taye Diggs anything interesting to do, then I’m not going to get mad at the show for essentially highlighting him and then circling him in red pen and drawing arrows at his chest.
