Fug File: Awards & Galas

Kids’ Choice Awards Well Played (with bonus Hmm): Iggy Azalea


Iggy Azalea just got eliminated from Fug Madness, and she seems out to make you glad you had faith in her.

There’s something charming to me about the fact that she resisted the urge to go Full Hooch at the Kids’ Choice Awards — something lesser mortals often can’t do — and also that she treated it seriously, like an event that she was happy to be invited to, and for which it was worth pulling out something nice. This is so much better than anything she wore in the preceding year, and with a cute, swingy high pony to boot, rather than a ten-pound crown of braids. Am I nuts or is she even less dead-eyed than usual? APPLAUSE.

And then she rolled up to the iHeartRadio Music Awards last night in this: Read More

Unfug or Fab: Hailee Steinfeld in Dior


She’s probably the best person I can think of to give this a try, but surely nobody’s torso needs to be dressed as a Sizzler sneezeguard.

Fugs and Fabs: Solids at the Independent Spirit Awards


And we can put THIS sucker to bed, at last. Come for the ScarJo, stay for some Kristens, formal pajamas, and the new Supergirl.

Fugs and Fabs: Patterns at the Independent Spirit Awards


We covered a couple folks from this during the Oscars — like what Cate Blanchett wore — but so very many more celebs went to the Independent Spirits, an awards show that was meant to be so casual that people might bike to it, but which is steadily turning up the fashion volume to, oh, MTV levels at least.

BRIT Awards Fug Carpet: Ellie Goulding in Alberta Ferretti


Ellie wore an Alberta Ferretti last night at the Elle Style Awards, and this feels like its demi-nude Coachella cousin:

Boob-covering motif? Check. Sheer in parts? Check. Visible panties? Check. I can’t figure out why she’d wear two gowns by the same designer with such a kinship, and SO close together, but then, it’s not like wearing just ONE of them would have made either frock suddenly attractive. I thought she’d chipped herself out of her see-through style rut, but I guess it runs deeper than I thought. We may need to tunnel in to rescue her, which means… I’m probably going to go get a beer instead and just leave her for awhile, because she did it to herself.

Fug or Fab: Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss at the BRIT Awards


I decided these two sat down as a pair and decided to wear Long Dresses With Interesting Backs to this event.
