Fug or Fab: Reese Witherspoon in Self Portrait


According to the step-and-repeat behind Reese here, this event was partially sponsored by Roberto Cavalli. I wonder if they sent her something and her stylist had to write back and be like, “you guys, come on. You know you are not on brand for Reese,” and their PR people were like, “yeah, yeah, we know. It was worth a shot?” and then everyone planned when they were going to get cocktails.

This is what she ended up wearing, regardless:

I’m kind of into it, although it does remind me of an incredibly formal screen door.

Fug or Fab: Nicole Kidman in Prada


Those of you who are invested in the Nicole Kidman/Keith Urban relationship (as well as those of you who enjoy People Holding Umbrellas For/With Loved Ones) are going to enjoy this. Regardless of how you feel about her dress.

But speaking of her dress:

American Music Awards Fugs or Fabs: Various Kardashians/Jenners


I want to tell you that I somehow just misread this headline — which, yes, I myself wrote — as “American Music Awards Fugs or Fabs: Various Voldemorts.”

American Music Awards Fug or Fab: Rita Ora in Zac Posen


This feels like a cousin to an older Lena Dunham dress, but with a less squinchy neckline.

It’s… fine, and it’s colorful, although you’d be as likely to see a knife and fork poking out the top as a person’s body. And somewhere around the middle it starts to pull weirdly, like a stretched piece of a popped, broken balloon. I don’t know if the goal is to have one’s thighs look like a child’s ultimate sadness.

Zzzz?

American Music Awards Fug or Fab: Taylor Swift in Michael Kors


Taylor won some kind of Dick Clark Award for General Stellarness, and she was very well-spoken and gracious, and that’s one of the reasons I can’t ever really get sick of her. She means well, she’s a hard worker, she can string two words together… If I had a daughter, she could do a lot worse than to look up to Swifty.

And Swifty could do a lot worse than this dress, but she could also do a lot better. And has. I almost prefer the Unitard of Doom to this, because at least that was sort of… pert. This is a beautiful color, but a snoozy design. I want to keep the skirt and send the rest back to Michael Kors with instructions that he should redo it or else receive a Singing Telegram from Heidi Klum in which he is ceremonially Auf’d.

Is it working for you?

American Music Awards Fug or Fab: Elizabeth Banks


This is 100% in her wheelhouse:

Bright, sassy, patterned, cheerful, possibly a little weird but not in a way that makes anyone uncomfortable or eye-roll-y, compelling despite potential imperfections. Which is not a bad wheelhouse to find yourself in, actually. WAY better than Predictably Naked or WTF Just Happened Here?

But how does it grab you?
