Friends With Better Fugs: Brooklyn Decker in The Row


Brooklyn Decker is so pretty and this is doing her no favors. I cannot even imagine what the late, lamented Dumpster would have said about this:

I believe this is Blazer By WHY and Suit By YOU’RE BETTER THAN THIS paired with shoes by Actually Those Shoes Are Great. (Someone please start a shoe line called Actually Those Shoes Are Great. Thanks.)

Fug or Fab: Kristen Wiig in J. Mendel


First of all, I don’t know if I was aware that she’d cut her hair, but it’s totally cute and sassy on her:

As, in fact, might this dress be. Sure, it’s like four outfits folded into one other outfit — one of which might have started life as a placemat — and yet, I am pretty sure I still enjoy it. Let me count the reasons:

Ergo, it MUST be a win. What do you think? Have I been too easily swayed by the glory of a list?

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


And this was the post where I accidentally fell sleep before the late night round of photos came in, and woke up with a start around 1 a.m. with all the lights on in my bedroom and no idea what was even happening with my life/choices. The all-hours Royals updates of the last couple of nights have not been a trial whatsoever because I am (a) a total night owl and (b) often up late working on the book and whatnot anyway, but tonight I just conked out. ANYWAY. WE’RE AWAKE NOW. WE’RE ALL AWAKE NOW.  This is a state reception where William is unveiling a new portrait of the Queen (there’s actually video of the event here; he gives a speech and all whatnot, rather than just going, “Yo, here’s a new painting of my grandma, see y’all later”), and I appreciate that Kate brought out the custom Jenny Packham for us (a better call than this bottomless Packham frock, I guess).

I believe that next up is A Yacht Race, which is actually how Heather and I settle all our arguments here at GFY HQ, so I’m looking extra forward to it.

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


No Bonnie Prince Georgie at this event, perhaps because laying a wreath at a war memorial is not exactly an appropriate occasion for a baby, even if he is a completely adorable little noodle. These two are also off to a fancy reception later tonight (which might be tomorrow for those in the US — let me tell you, I have done more math figuring out what time it’s going to be here in Los Angeles when things happen in New Zealand this week than I ever could have anticipated, and I have screwed it up several times) and that will get its own post, because SURELY it will have GOWNS.

Here, Kate’s in bespoke McQueen and as is true for all her McQueen coats, I love it. I want to take all her McQueen coats and wear them all at once, a la Joey putting on all of Chandler’s clothes. “Could I be wearing any more of your coats?”

Well Played, Lupita Nyong’o in Giambattista Valli


Thank god she’s back. I mean, she obviously needed a nap after the whirlwind of awards season — I needed a nap and I do all my work in yoga pants — but still.

This is VERY girly indeed, but so charming on her; Lancome was extremely correct to make her their newest Face of Lancome. I will totally buy her lipstic or whatever else she’s selling, and I would also like to buy something that will give me her arms without me having to do any actual work. If possible. That’s possible, right?

Fugs and Fabs: The NBC Summer Upfronts


I wish they’d made everyone wear Sharknado dresses. Even Nick Cannon. Nick Cannon would totally do it.
