Fugs and Fabs: Celebs at the Airport


Tis the season! I’m sure a lot of Fug Nation is traveling over this week. Be safe, look glamorous, and report back if you end up in security behind Bieber.

Well Played: Star Wars Cast Members at GMA


I’m sure I should temper my excitement, but I can’t. I did not enjoy the prequels. I DO enjoy that these films appear to honor the look of the original three. And I’ve watched those a million times in the last two years because I have two obsessed beans who can re-enact the entire X-wing destruction of the Death Star while listening to the soundtrack — like, they have the timing of every line, relative to the music, completely down pat. So… yeah. I’m stoked. I want this to be good. And at least the cast seems to be enjoying the tour as it revs up.

Pursuant to that: What is your favorite of the movies? I know the popular answer is The Empire Strikes Back, but I have to say… mine is the original, aka Chapter IV, aka Star Wars, aka A New Hope. Again, having seen (and re-enacted; I am often cast as Darth Vader, aptly) them a lot recently and through the eyes of two kids, there is SO MUCH TALKING in Empire, and a lot of drudgery. Whereas the first one is PERFECTLY paced and has a lot of really fantastic action setpieces. And, you never forget your first Death Star. As a standalone cinematic experience, I think that one is the most wholly satisfying. You?

Fugs and Fabs: Celebs Wearing Things to the Airport


So! Recently, LAX announced they’re going to build a new, super-private VIP entrance for celebs, to which I say: BORING. How am I supposed to judge people’s cute luggage now?!? WILL NO ONE THINK OF MY PAGEVIEWS? (Also: yes, by all means, totally get on building a secret tunnel from LAX to Calabasas for the Kardashians but don’t even worry about the fact that the JetBlue terminal only has a Burger King and like three toilets for women, total.) Let’s enjoy this while it lasts!

Recent Fugs or Fabs: Reese Witherspoon


All of this is cute, to my mind, but then I looked more closely and realized that her skirt, her wacky printed pants, and her sweater, are all the same print and, ergo, I think I just got Draper Jamesed. Which IS cute, if bright and preppy is your jam — it is mine — but MAN, it all feels about $100 more expensive than it ought to be. Is the quality particularly good? Is anyone buying it? DOES ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING?

(PS: I remember from a previous post that some of you wanted the “Totes, Y’all” tote that was sold out; it’s back in stock. I GET NO KICKBACK FROM THIS. I just wanted you to know!)

Fugs and Fabs: The Recent Looks of Lady Gaga


I’ve liked her so much more since she’s started dressing like a character in a Judith Krantz novel.

Mostly Well Played: Lupita Nyong’o


Lupita is currently starring in Eclipse Off (and soon to be On) Broadway, which is great news for us, because it means we get to eyeball whatever she chooses to wear to greet the paparazzi at the stage door. It’s extra good news because she is not just opting for the same jeans and puffy jacket every day. It’s extra extra pleasant to get to look at her collection of wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses.
