Fugs and Fabs: The MOBO Awards


This red carpet is very shiny, and also well-weighted with women who use merely a single initial as a surname.

Royally Played, Kate Middleton in Temperley London


It seems that Kate spent the last twelve weeks at home thinking, “you know what? LET’S MIX THINGS UP. I’m buying this quasi-low-backed black cocktail dress that MIGHT be sheer in bits but totally isn’t and everyone’s going to love it OR NOT I DON’T CARE. Someone, anyone, NOT GEORGE, please bring me some ginger tea, thank you.”

As for me, I am on record as being generally unmoved by Kate’s cocktail wear, especially when it’s Temperley — I was meh on this Temperley in Australia, and this particular Temperley cocktail dress from a couple of years ago inspired extremely neutral feelings as well. (It seems that while I like Temperley a lot as a whole, I am not as enamored of their cocktail options.) THAT BEING SAID, I think I like this. I definitely like that she continues to (classily) (sort of) sex it up. REGARDLESS, LET’S DISCUSS.

Fugs and Fabs: The GQ Gentleman’s Ball.


I accidentally titled this post, “The GQ Gentleman’s Balls,” which is not gentlemanly at all. That said, as promised, this DOES bring you gentlemen, from Pacey to Riggins. Wait, quick: someone write a think piece called From Pacey to Riggins, about the secondary hot dude that everyone falls in love with on TV shows set in high schools.

Well Played Waxwork, Benedict Cumberbatch


I looked at these photos of the girls meeting this waxwork and said, aloud to the empty room, “I love people.” In their defense, this waxwork is good enough that they might be able to pass it off as the real thing in a dark room to a person who’s forgotten their glasses.

Fugson’s Creek: Katie Holmes


Well, her lipstick is fun? Her hair might be good? She seems happy? The book she writes in sixty years about how perfectly she was extracted from Scientology/Tom Cruise is going to be AMAZING? And now that I’d led with the good:

The 2014 Skin Cancer Foundation Gala

I should tell you that I’ve become so inured to The Jumpsuit that I literally just thought to myself, “huh, this might need different shoes.” I’m going to take to my bed now.

Fugs and Fabs: The Foundation Louis Vuitton Opening


In which even Marion Cotillard cannot save a look that’s gone wholly off the rails.
