Cannes Fug or Fab: Salma Hayek in Alexander McQueen


I am actually very close to liking this outright.

Truly, I think the dress is great on her. My hangups are that I think the serpentine arm cuff is cool but not perhaps sufficient — does she need more bracelets on her other arm? — and the giant platform shoes, the likes of which belong in Grease on the foot of a young Australian lass who is so busy pandering to her horndog greaser boyfriend that she failed to notice he’d been willing to raise his game. So, basically, it’s like cooking a wonderful roast and then serving it garnished with only one tiny roasted potato and Hot Wheels car.

Fug or Fab: Nicole Kidman


Do you think she’s sad she’s not at Cannes this year? I am, mostly because Kidman is at her best at Cannes.

Cannes Fugs or Fabs: The Mad Max Photocall and Premiere


Yeah, this post was originally just going to be Charlize, but who am I to deny you Tom Hardy and Nicholas Hoult? And then I realized we might as well talk about Zoe Kravitz, too. In other words: let’s get all Mad Max up in here.

Fugs and Fabs: The Mad Max Premiere


I gleaned by reading between the lines of some tweets following this premiere that Mad Max is quite good, but that there’s an embargo on mentioning that yet, which seems dumb because almost everyone I know is like, “there’s a new Mad Max movie? Huh.” (In fairness, I may not be traveling in circles that would include a high number of Mad Max enthusiasts.) That said, apparently there’s all kind of people in this movie whose faces I enjoy. Let’s look at some of them.

Fug or Fab: Mischa Barton


Have we entered a phase where the erstwhile Marissa Cooper has turned into a Noted Kook?

Because if so…I kind of love it. GO FULL CAFTAN, MISCHA.

Met Gala Fug or Fab: Lady Gaga in Balenciaga


Like Katy Perry, I feel like this could have gone way, way more wrong. (Especially as I’d heard via Twitter that she was wearing geta, the traditional Japanese clogs. Instead, of course, she is wearing Lady Gaga’s Traditional Clogs; those shoes that make her look like she might be Frankenstein’s monster from the calves down.)
