Fug Don’t Cost a Thing: Christina Milian

There are certain places in Los Angeles that celebrities go when they want to be photographed. For example, The Ivy — at which Simon Cowell had Easter brunch this weekend, holding his baby, which is basically…like, you might as wear a sign that says, “Hey! I need some PR!” — and this place at which Christina Milian is alighting, Hooray Henry’s. And yet her outfit is so subtle:

I suspect you are scared to see the front of this. I will prepare you merely by noting that it could be worse:

Fugs and Fabs: A Variety of Events from the Tribeca Film Festival

So much to discuss, not the least of which are Katie Holmes’s new bangs. (Can we also talk about this rumor that Tom Cruise is dating Laura Prepon? Scientologist matchmakers at work!)

Fug or Fab: Emma Watson in Narciso Rodriguez

Well, she did NOT forget to wear a bracelet:

That is one delightful cuff, and I feel compelled to give her an A in accessories.

As for the rest:

I like this conceptually. It’s so spring-y and delicate and I feel like it toes the line of washing her out without quite lunging over it. But I feel that something is missing from it, and I can’t quite put my finger on what it is. Maybe it just needs a flute of champagne and a jelly donut — which, frankly, is exactly what I want for lunch today. Is that so wrong?

Forget about conceptually. In actual practice:

Fug or Fab the Cover: Emma Stone in Vogue, May 2014

After the drama of Kimye, a breath of fresh, welcome air in the form of Emma Stone. Vogue, in fact, has a short film — very short, like 2 minutes — of her “preparing” for her newest role up on their website and it is just…she is the most charming person. She might be irresistible. Which is why I wish this cover, at least, was a little livelier? Her face looks fabulous — her brows are amazing — but I worry that the hat (and the weirdly crispy hair) is literally putting a lid on her essential lightness. On the other hand, her actual face looks fabulous. Just stick your hand over the hat and see. Right? Right.

Let’s take a real looksee, including at two shots from the inside shoot, and then come back and tell me what you think.

Well Played: Kate, Wills, and George’s Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand, Day Fourteen

Easter + Zoo + Plane = so very much George. This was a big day and while Kate wore a lovely dove grey Alexander McQueen coat and darker grey Jane Taylor hat to Easter services — my kingdom for a McQueen! My God, those coats are divine — the cutest part of the day, obviously, was George Goes To the Zoo. I don’t even know what to tell you. It’s basically the cutest thing ever. I could have made this slideshow sixty slides long. If you have a weakness for William holding and also kissing the baby, then I suggest you sit down right now and hold on. Also, you may be interested in the proceedings if you like when people offers flowers to their wives, or also if you like koalas.  And, seriously, who doesn’t like koalas? Also giraffes. And kangaroos. Did I mention George? He wants to eat everything and always to get down. DOWN.

The rest of the day, we’ve got William sporting a blue suit sandwich (one for Easter services, a casual look at the zoo, and then another blue suit when they arrived in Canberra); George in a variety of baby outfits (also much blue, to match Daddy); and Kate in two additional outfits we’ve seen before, this yellow eyelet that she wore on their S.E Asia tour (the photo to which I linked there features amazing floral head-wreaths which shall put this weekend’s Coachella goers TO SHAME) which was designed by god knows who (maybe HER? Everyone only knows that it was made by a dressmaker, rather than a designer whose website we can crash, and I have no idea why), and then she replayed this blue Stella McCartney dress to deplane in Canberra.

PS: It’s the middle of the night, so I feel confessional — don’t worry, I have not bought myself a Cartier watch or anything — and I must say that I am rather going to miss the Middle of the Night Royals Updates when this is over.

Casual Fuggerday: Julianne Hough

Congrats, Julianne!

You are officially the best dressed girl in my 8th grade class. Sure, that was in 1989. But it’s something.
