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.

Fugs and Fabs: The Rest of the Elle Style Awards


Gwen Christie from Game of Thrones may not be the most famous person in this slideshow, but HOW COULD I NOT LEAD WITH THAT OUTFIT? She looks like a Hogwarts professor at the staff holiday party, hoping Snape will catch her eye and agree that she is his present, like, COME ON, what more can she do? YOUR CRUSH IS GONE, SEVERUS. MOVE ON.

Oscars 2015: Fug Nation’s Best-Dressed


Okay, because the Oscars are A Grand Affair, we do two separate Best Dressed polls: for the main ceremony, and the after parties. All the candidates — chosen from the stuff we liked, and then trying to gauge what you responded to that we didn’t — are in this slideshow, with the telecast contenders first, then the post-parties (all labeled). The separate polls are after the jump.

Sorry if that seems confusing; we’re trying not to drag out the voting, and four different posts certainly feels like it would. As ever, it’s an evolving beast.
