Fug File: Fug or Fab

ACM Awards Fug or Fab Carpet: Miranda Lambert in Randi Rahm and Blake Shelton


You know those celebrity couples you worry about even though you don’t know them, and you’re well aware that you don’t know them, and you’re actually not even that invested in them, not really? That’s me with these two:

I find him charming (as does most of America) and I am kind of neutral-t0-positive on her, but that’s about it — and yet I have a tiny portion of my brain that has opinions about their relationship, perhaps because I spend a lot of time reading People. And that opinion is that I hope they work out and yet I am always still surprised they haven’t broken up yet. ANYWAY. He looks like himself (enjoyable), and she looks like she should get a job playing Kristin Chenoweth’s sister on an ABC mid-season comedy.

Is that a bad thing? I'm going to let you choose.

ACM Awards Fug or Fab: Taylor Swift in J.Mendel


Full disclosure: I actually really like this. I’m so thrilled to see her keep moving past the shiny, spangly, short thing — and you guys KNOW I love shiny AND spangly. It’s just that for a couple of years she looked really PREDICTABLE and, truly, aren’t we all like sharks, in that if we stop moving, we die and also everyone is very excited for the week devoted to us on Discovery Channel? Exactly. That being said, I will not be surprised if some of you have NOTES, and indeed I welcome them, so LAY ‘EM ON US in the comments.

Fug or Fab: Karen Gillan (with an assist from Matt Smith)


Well, it’s a slow Friday, and we’re all winding down right about now, dreaming of our first cocktail of the night. So this one’s for all you Doctor Who lovers out there.

Let’s get the dress out of the way: I quite like the shiny, textured bits, but they’re laid over mesh, and then the sleeves seem to belong to a different dress altogether; I wish we could take the all the Bits and make a proper fabric out of them and try THAT on for size. Also, she needs some lip color; I’m going to give her a pass on the bracelet malarkey because we can’t see her left arm, as she is busy wearing her former co-star as an accessory. (We should probably discuss that tagline, though, and whether we think someone pitched this movie by saying, “What if the Harry Potter Mirror of Erised… WAS EVIL?”)

Anyhoo: I was trying to figure out if these two chipper youths are dating, and only came up with: a) the EP warned them against it while they were on the show; b) the fan base deeply seems to WANT them to be removing each other’s pants, and c) their Wikipedia pages have been scrubbed of any personal details. So let your Spidey Senses run wild in the comments, Fug Nation. Call it a Friday Fan-Fic, if you like.

But the dress:

Fug or Fab: Katy Perry in Versace


It’s entirely possible that I have been deeply brainwashed by Fug Madness — which continues tomorrow! — and now when I can see anything that’s not, like, horns protruding out of someone’s elbows worn with a coconut bra and a grill comprised of old Budweiser platinum caps, my reaction is automatically kind of positive. But the truth is that I might think I like this.

I clearly cannot be trusted. What do you think?

Kids’ Choice Awards Fug or Fine: Selena Gomez in Dolce & Gabbana


I don’t really know what to make of this.

My first wish is that it were a bit longer and a dress, rather than a tunic over shorts. My second wish might be for a different sleeve length. My third wish: that the trim and the photo-pattern looked like they had any relevance to each other. There’s a hint of purple in each, I guess, but mostly they are, to me, punching each other in the sandbox. In bad sports parlance: I don’t hate the player and I don’t even really hate the game, but the officiating stinks.

Dear Selena:

Fug or Fab: Shailene Woodley in Roksanda Ilincic


Look how TALL she looks in this.

The color is awesome, too; the one black strap seemed random and weird at first, or at least strangely lonely, but then it turns out the back is woven in a way that’s really eye-catching. So maybe the moment of discord in the front it worth it, especially because rest of it is so flattering on her. And smartly chosen: It’s got SUCH a beachy feel, and I swear, Shailene Woodley seems like someone who, in another universe, would just live in a tent on the beach. Like, I feel like the really chill parts of Lost would really appeal to her as a lifestyle: fishing with a spear, fashioning a residence out of fronds, opening the occasional can of something that was in the mysterious hatch, communing with an all-powerful being made of smoke, etc. Basically, all of Lost minus the murdery people and the whole plane crash bummer.
