Fug File: Accessories to the Crime

American Music Awards Fugs and Fabs: People in Metallics

As you know, in general I cannot resist a metallic. But some of these may be…resistible.

American Music Awards Well Played, Fergie in Halston Heritage

I believe that this is good on her by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s EVEN BETTER if you first reflect on what she used to wear. And I don’t mean in the old Peed on Herself On Stage days, I mean like two months ago when she wore this crazy thing. (I mean, but also we should reflect that THIS is a thing that happened. 2006 was a weird and in many ways amazing year.) Is it REVOLUTIONARY?

The 2014 American Music Awards in LA

It might be, in the sense that I’m not sure she’s looked this good in maybe…ever?

American Music Awards Fug Carpet: Heidi Klum in Armani

Noted musician Heidi Klum, at the American Music Awards! I assume she’s there to accept her award for Best German Language Spoken Word Poetry Recording, or something? No? Huh. I would have bet money.

Fug or Fab the Gift: Kim’s Hermes Bag

I want to be clear: I am not fugging North West’s artwork. That kid isn’t even two years old. She’s not SUPPOSED to be doing anything other than swirling things around and making handprints with help from an adult. She didn’t make this with an eye toward it being photographed, because SHE’S BARELY A TODDLER. We are not making fun of her output. It’s totally a little girl having fun with this crazy-ass canvas someone handed her.

Kim Kardashian

But let’s think about it as a gift.┬áThis is clearly Kanye trying to out-Angelina Angelina, by sticking North’s early artwork onto a couture bag rather than a custom wedding gown (I’m sure he’s super angry they didn’t think of making Kim’s a mosaic of North’s face, claiming North approved the sketch and personally glued every construction-paper tile). It is also, I think, a thousand┬átimes more soothing to receive than the infamous Bag, which, frankly, might have been every bit as horrifying to find in a box as a severed head.

Let’s check it out more closely, just to examine it:

Emmys Fugs and Fabs: Ladies in Red

We accidentally published this without text here, which… I mean, that was bound to happen. I’m surprised it didn’t happen two days ago.

Emmys Fug or Fab Carpet: Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting


I am, as regular readers know, VERY SUSCEPTIBLE to pink and red together. I just love it. It’s like a big old Valentine ON YOUR BODY. And thus I think she may have talked me into this. Do you want to talk me OUT of it?

Something about this parade is weirdly soothing. I’m so relaxed right now.
