Fug or Fab: Kate Bosworth

And now, the palate cleanser after Rita and Miley: an actual garment.

I don’t really like whatever that fabric is on the top, and although the skirt is cool,  it also looks like she velcro’d her clutch to her groin. Which might be a good idea for cocktail parties, come to think of it.

You should also see the back:

Fug and Fab: Lizzy Caplan in Proenza Schouler

Lizzy has some of the most interesting tastes in town, and THANK YOU SWEET FRIEND for not punting even though it’s August and the weather has been hella weird and it’s easier not to leave the house.

This is a scrolldown for me, because while I love the jungle element of the dress, the shoes make as much sense as a lion in an ant farm: They just don’t seem at home (although SLIGHTLY less likely to react to that by eating their enemies). Get back to me when you’re in a ballet entitled Christian Louboutin Presents: The Birth of Our Savior Blue Ivy, starring Lizzy Caplan as whoever held Beyonce’s laptop to document her contractions.

Scrolldown Fug or Fab: Sarah Paulson

But is this a Be Careful What You Wish For scenario, in which the lady’s attempt at unusual footwear has resulted in lemon-colored pumps that REALLY look like they got lost on the way to the Teen Choice Awards? Spicy shoes are something I generally support, but gown and scrolldown don’t look like they have ANYTHING to say to one another, like if you sent Helen Mirren to dinner with Justin Bieber and told them they could ONLY discuss books that don’t have pictures in them.

Fug or Fab the Cover: Various International September Issues of Vogue

Here in the USA, we got Beyonce. In Australia, there was a great cover of Nicole Kidman. Japanese Vogue brought Katy Perry. But what did the rest of the world find in their mailboxes this September? LET’S FIND OUT TOGETHER.


Fug or Fab: Amal Alamuddin

She was in motion in this shot — which is the best one I had of her dress — so please forgive her the Knees of Incontinence. It wasn’t her choice.

Fug or Fab: Vanessa Hudgens

One thing is for sure: Chokers really ARE back. Kelly Taylor is going to be thrilled. Next up: baby tees and tiny plastic hair clips. The return of 90210 fashion aside, I want to give V. Hudge at least nominal props for this.
