Fug File: Fug or Fab

Fug or Fab: Rihanna in Jeremy Scott


On one hand, this is a robe:

The DAILY FRONT ROW "Fashion Los Angeles Awards" Show

On the other hand, it’s a formal robe that I am desperate to own, the better to swan about my home, throwing drinks in people’s faces and making out with the pool boy. SO.

So?!

Fug or Fab: Gwyneth Paltrow in Lanvin


As if Our Lady of GOOP would waste her side-ass on something as laaaaaame as Mortdecai.  This is a side-boob only joint. (I admit to being curious to hear what she’s privately calling this one, since she’s on record as referring to View From The Top as “View From My Ass.” I kind of want to get caught in an elevator with Gwynnie. You’d have to be there for a LONG TIME before she’d break, I think, but once she broke, you’d get DISH. And probably some weird recipe for an organic face wash.)

Fug or Fab: Emily Blunt in Alexander McQueen


I am not entirely sure what’s happening here:

At first I thought she was wearing a glamorously weird McQueen take on a caftan, but actually, the gown seems more fitted than that, so… she might just be wearing a glamorously weird McQueen, full-stop. It has a sleeve that thinks it might be a cape. Still… even if it’s not floaty enough to hide my snack bloat, I could TOTALLY swan around in that on someone’s yacht deck by night, a flute in one hand — of Champers, not of musicality — and a plate stacked high with cheese in the other. There’s something appealingly luxe about its kookitude, like this isn’t just an outfit but a lifestyle.

Do you like it?

Fug or Fab: Katie Holmes in Marc Cain


I was going to full-out fug this, and then I looked at it, and it’s CRAZY but I might kind of enjoy it?

But it might just be the cozy goodness of that coat speaking to me.

Have I at last been hypnotized by a coat, something we all knew would happen eventually?

Fug or Fab: Chloe Grace Moretz in Valentino


Okay, let’s work through this together.

We’ve got an ornate collar (lovely) and a gold color (usually a yes) and a whole lot of lace (… it depends) and some black pumps (zzz) that seem to have a very elegant shape to them at least (true) and no platform (PRAISE) but the double skirt looks like a window (yeesh) and she seems to have her hands jammed into translucent pockets (…?) because I can still SEE her hands (!!!!) I think (pretty sure) even though I shouldn’t be able to (right?) and it’s freakish (… the hell?), and you know what (what?), I’ve talked myself right out of this one.

Press your luck:

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Fine or Fab: Julianne Moore in Saint Laurent


Saint Laurent always looks phoned in to me — like once they lost the Yves, they also lost the will to live — but this isn’t….I mean. It’s….I can’t even muster up the oomph to finish the sentence. IT’S FINE. THERE. Two words. Seven letters. One sweet apostrophe. I did it:

The 20th Annual Critics Choice Movie Awards in Hollywood

But FINE is probably exactly right when you won a Golden Globe on Sunday and you know that this — an event at which she also won — is just a pit stop on the commute to Oscarville. You have to leave something in the tank for the last ten miles of the journey, after all. (Maybe take a detour around the Sheer Bib Portion of the drive next time, though. It’s so unsightly and traffic is terrible.)
