Best In Fug


Weirdly, I am most troubled by the shoes.

Though admittedly, that’s because letting my gaze linger on the rest of this for too long gives me a headache, and risks retinal sunburn or something. (Suffice to say that I think Mrs. Claus wears this when she wants Santa to get too confused by the wrappings to undo them.) And so my eyes drift down to her feet, and… that HAS to be a trick of the light, right? There’s no way I can actually see the outline of her toes in that shoe…? So it’s just an illusion that it looks like a giant red paw? Please?

    I think…they might be peep toe shoes? And we can just see her toes through the tights? That is a really unfortunate case of matchy-matchy clothes, if so. And if not, she should burn the shoes.

    I don’t think those are peep-toes. They look like saran wrap. Ugh.

    The dress wouldn’t be so bad without the tights and shoes.

    The zoom seems to show that they are, in fact, red pumps made of Fun Fruit Roll Ups. It’s a pretty monstrous pair of shoes when they steal the spotlight in this red-tighted, ’80′s sleeved, curtain tieback-belted horror show.

    Her feet are wrapped in Fruit Roll Ups.
    Ms. Posey, I love you.

    She looks like a nosebleed. With paws. My head hurts.

    Eww. Giant red paw it is. Maybe she wants to give Thomas Jane a (more subtle) run for the money?

      My first thought was Thomas Jane as well, though this is admittedly less grungy and… greasy than he tends to look.

      Oh Parker. How I adore you, even when you wear plastic wrap paw coverings instead of shoes with your taffetta explosion of a dress. Excuse me, a taffetta explosion with TASSELS.

        That she managed to make the shoes the most disturbing part of this outfit is both amazing and award worthy.
        Who wears the worst shoes in Hollywood? The “SJP shoe award?”
        (vandalfan – “Fun Fruit Roll Ups”, perfection!)

    Mephistopheles is missing his tights and he is SOOOOPER mad. Girl, you best return those if you don’t want to get pitchforked in hell for all eternity …

    Did she pass out at the Halloween party and lose her tiny devil horns? Or is she just not yet completely dressed in her Santa’s Helper costume? So confused …

      I don’t think those are bangles. In the close-up it looks like…a gold chainmail wristband.

    Oh god, no, they’re real: they’re actually shaped like creepy cat paws.

    you guys this is an actual thing. Christian Louboutin makes them: http://www.styleite.com/media/christian-louboutin-cat-paw-shoe/

    I don’t know if what she is wearing is precisely that, but…it’s a thing. Sanctioned by top designers. That is enough to be horrified by.

    It looks the same on her other foot. They’re either super tight and see-through and we are seeing the shape of her toes suffering, or … they are made that way. Either option is horrifying.

    They aren’t Louboutin; they’re by Vivienne Westwood.

    http://www.viviennewestwood.co.uk/shop/womens-accessories/shoes/mary-jane-gold-1172/

    I would guess that her whole outfit is Westwood. The draping and random tassel seem just creh-creh enough.

      The best part is at $635.00 they recommend you have them resoled!!!

        I KNOW!

        If I pay that much, the damn shoes better come with their own cobbler.

        Preferably Daniel Day-Lewis. Or peach.

        They have more than one style. *Shudders.*

    That was my first thought too – horrid! So horrid!

    I thought they were those finger shoes! But now that I see these shoes have heels, even more shaken. So horrid.

    Actually, I am glad Kate acknowledged they are the Louboutins (note the red soles, peeps) – they are all over the place right now and FREAK ME OUT. I thought the animal print ones were bad, but in an actual color they are even weirder.

    I’m dying to know the story here, because this woman would only wear something this offensive with specific INTENT.

      Are you serious?!?! Those fug-ass shoes look like something you could find on Etsy. Give me a break.

    THIS is the dress Lea Michelle should have worn on the red carpet with Ashton “Big Bad Wolf” Kutcher — sans the red hose and shoes (black or nude instead) and swapping the neck piece for a cute red hood.

    I guess Parker is depressed that she’s no longer the Indie Darling (having been deposed first by Zooey Deschanel and now Elizabeth Olsen), but that’s no reason to start dressing like a friend of Randy Constan (the online Peter Pan Pixy Guy), is it? Good grief. She’s lost it, hasn’t she?

    I am at a loss at how she actually left the house wearing this, thinking that it looked good. Some outfits on this website may not really do it for me, but in a way, I can see why the person wearing them may have thought they looked good. However, there is absolutely nothing redeemable about this outfit and her hair. Honestly, what was Parker Posey thinking?

    I always thought that when my fancy shoes started looking like that, it was time to retire them.. Should I really have been selling them for thousands of dollars?

    I am secretly in love with her glomesh cuffs, I can’t think of anything kind to say about the rest,except that Lina is right – Ms Parker must have done this on purpose.

    They are Vivienne Westwood and very nice too.

    I don’t want to disparage Vivienne Westwood because she’s been making me laugh a long, long time (remember the Erect Penis shoes?), but I truly wish the dress and the hose and the shoes had been used separately, and not in a disastrous combination. I think the red shoes might have worked with something else (but I am hard pressed, let me tell ya, to think of what) and the red dress—it is so crazy and over the top. Colour looks great on Parker, though! But she deserves to look beautiful in something else.

    Upon glance it looks to me like Parker Posey is “Vaj Tassles: I didn’t even know I was Pregnant” tonight on Lifetime…

    At first I just looked at the shoe on the right and was thinking, “Okay, boring and cheap looking, but harmless enough) and then I looked at the left one:

    Aiyeeeee!!!! Those toe-shoes are creeptastic!!!!!

    Those tights are what I would call “chunky.” They bring new meaning to the word “opaque.” They so remind me of the type of tights I wore as a Ballerina in the nutcracker during the candy scenes. So red you can see them from the nosebleed section.

    I think this really proves that actors will wear really ugly outfits on purpose just to get attention, but it just looks ridiculous. And the fact that shoes as ugly as those cost almost $5,000 (according to Daphne) is as unbelievable as there actually being someone who would buy them.

    When my shoes begin to look like that in the toes, it’s time to get new shoes.

    I thought they were clear plastic at first — clear plastic that was too tight. And that was horrifying enough!

    The dress would be so much better (and quite nice, actually) without that bit around the neck. The shoes and tights are hideous. I have a violent aversion to coloured tights – they make grown women look like simpering kindergarten teachers.

    Seriously? Who looks at themselves in the mirror and thinks they look good in this?

    She looks like a court jester. The collar, the tassels and the tights make me think she’s going to start juggling. Or maybe she’ll stand on the back of a running pony, or whatever it is they do to entertain kings.
