Recent Fugs and Fabs: Freida Pinto

Freida’s at the same Italian Film Festival as Jessica Chastain is, and, frankly, Jessica Chastain and Freida Pinto Solve Crimes at an Italian Film Festival is a movie that I just decided I really, really want to see. Someone, get typing!

Well Played, Keira Knightley in Erdem

Keira Knighley is ALL about the metallic shoes this summer: heels, Mary Janes, and now sandals.

Keira-Knightley (1)

I support this totally. Other things I support:

  1. This dress.
  2. A saucy print in general.
  3. Smirking at the photographers in a way that actually doesn’t seem that irritated
  4. Whatever they had to drink at this dinner, which I assume was Pimms Cups, because in my fantasy life where I am going out for dinner in London wearing that dress, I drink Pimms.
  5. Her makeup-less-looking face. I know this seems UNLIKE ME — no one notes that You Might Feel Better If You Put On Some Lipstick more than I do — but I think in this instance, the dress is fancy enough that she’s actually smart to use her face to dress it down. (I’m totally going to start telling people I’m doing that, also. For example, the next time the checker at the market tells me I look tired, I’ll just gesture extravagantly at my jeans and striped Breton top and say, “YES, Marcia! I am dressing this down so I don’t look too FANCY,” and she’ll just hand over my crate of wine in a disgusted silence.)

Recent Fugs and Fabs: Jessica Chastain

It appears that Jessica Chastain also saw herself in Zero Dark Thirty and thought, “god, I do look good in sunglasses.”

Fugs and Pieces, July 11, 2014

THANK GOD IT’S THE WEEKEND. Read this stuff while I start drinking heavily:

– In this week’s Vanity Fair WHO WORE IT BEST?! Heather and I make Brooke Shields and Joey Potter wrestle. Um, figuratively.

– In Unsurprising News of the Week: Lindsay Lohan Issued Final Warning Due to Poor Behavior on SPEED THE PLOW?. (Broadway World)

– Sooooo, the Scottish uniforms for the Commonwealth Games are….not great, Bob. (Telegraph)

People StyleWatch has a wonderful tribute to Eileen Ford, who died this week.

A Belated Tribute to Meshach Taylor and His Groundbreaking Designing Women Character, via Vulture. Well worth your time to read.


– Over at the Archives of American Art, this is awesome: “The Archives of American Art’s current exhibition Artists and Their Models considers the important role of models in the artistic process. A model’s distinct characteristics help bring life and personality to an artist’s idea. Yet being an artist’s muse requires both muscle and moxie. Live models have to ignore their aching limbs and maintain dramatic gazes for hours at a time. They must comport their bodies into awkward positions, often while wearing little or no clothes. Original photographs in our collections offer a glimpse into the work of models. Of these images, I wonder, which of these posers is premier? I have channeled my inner Tyra Banks to rank the top artist’s models in the Archives of American Art.”

– I ASSUME you’ve read the new Harry Potter tidbits, but you will also want to read Margaret Lyons’s take on it in Vulture.

– THIS is my kind of quiz: Which Ryan Gosling Movie House Should You Live In? (Lonny)

Lo “The Hills” Bosworth did the Grub Street Diet this week and I found it charming (and full of food). It reminded me why I always liked it when Lo showed up on the The Hills to tell L.C to Get A Grip.

– Allegedly Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are dating (she just broke off her engagement, so perhaps they’re just hooking up; either way, good for both of you) and I totally support this, actually. They’re both hot and they both seem likeable and entertaining, so way to go, you two hot likeable people. Get it on. (Lainey)

‘The Giver’ Gets a Nail Collection. Which Children’s Book Should Be Next? asks Elle.

– Justin Theroux gave an interview in which he says he hates sweatpants AND mandals. You’re hired! (Celebitchy)

– You guys may not know this, but I am secretly obsessed with articles about how best to pack one’s luggage, and this Cosmo one has some legitimately good tips that might change my life.

– I love this headline: The 25 Most Egregious Emmy Nomination Snubs Of All Time (According to Me, At This Particular Hour, Based on my Current Mood). (Pajiba)


Royals Round-Up, July 11, 2014

In which William puts on a wetsuit for us, and Crown Princess Mary works her jeans and sneaks.

BUT FIRST! This week here at GFY, ICYMI, a lot went down:

Fugs and Fabs: The Sex Tape Premiere

You will never BELIEVE who Cameron Diaz wore. It’s a jumpsuit and it rhymes with “Bella McFartney.” Can I believe I just made that joke? No, I cannot. Did I still decide that it was Friday, and therefore silly juvenilia was allowed? Damn straight, I did. Let’s get comfortable and sit in judgement.
