Fug File: Accessories to the Crime

Independent Spirit Awards Fug or Fab Carpet: Jessica Chastain in Elie Saab

First of all, you should know that it was very humid in Los Angeles this past weekend — surely to the great sadness of hair stylists everywhere. Second, you should know that the Daily Mail felt this look was “busty.” I don’t even know, sometimes.

Oscars Fug or Fab: Jennifer Jason Leigh

She’s been looking lovely throughout his entire awards season, but I think this look might have been – ultimately — a bit more bridesmaidal than I was anticipating. Let’s discuss!

Oscars Fugs and Fabs: The Dudes

There was a lot of handsome at this event last night. I am NOT complaining.


Grammy Awards Fugs and Fabs: The (mostly) Dudes of the Grammys

Can we interest you in some Dudes in Suits?

BAFTAs Fug or Fab: Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton

More than anything, I want to talk about the Vikander/Fassbender Kiss Cam Scandale of last night (we didn’t see it here; it seems it was cut for broadcast everywhere). Wait, more than ANYTHING, I want to hear about DiCaprio making out with Maggie Smith. And then we can talk about Vikanderbender. And then — only then! — can we discuss her dress:


Yes, it’s leather, embellished with some kind of progressively stabby tinsel — as if this were a Chia Pet, but instead of a pet, it’s a dress, and instead of chia, it grows tinsel. I don’t hate it, and I definitely want to touch it. Which is either good news, or bad, depending on how you feel about me as a person, I suppose.

The DGA Awards Fugs and Fabs: The Solids

All of these women looked at their closets and made the choice to eschew color on this fair evening.

SAG Awards Fugs and Fabs: The Women of Downton Abbey

The SAGs LOVE Downton, as they’ve won best ensemble in a drama several years in a row. And love seeing the Downtonites out of period costume. They all look more or less great, but Baxter looks particularly amazing. NO SPOILERS!

Note: No Michelle Dockery this year. Her fiance died at the very end of 2015, and (understandably) she hasn’t made any public appearances since. Actually, I just realized that it’s ONLY the Downstairs Downtonites who came to this event.
