Fug or Fab: Mindy Kaling in Marc by Marc Jacobs


Do I like this, or am I just playing into its hands?

Mindy Kaling

I mean, clearly, it’s trying to scramble my mind grapes. (Get well, Tracy Morgan.) It is sending out weirdo waves of brain control and it wants to hypnotize me into submission. Is it WORKING, or is it just GOOD? I trip up a little bit on the chest area — I can’t tell where anything is? — and whether her makeup might be too heavy. But I still might like it. In other words, feel free to stomp on my mind grapes as long as it makes mind wine.

Guys Choice Awards Fug or Fab: Cameron Diaz in Gucci


This is the best Cammy D’s head has looked in a long time.

Cameron Diaz Spike TV Guys Choice Awards

In fact, her whole BEING looks pretty good. I will admit, I’m a little confused by her choice of outfit because, for a girl who’s often in a high-and-tight rut when it comes to skirts, picking something more modest at the Guys’ Choice Awards seems kind of counter-intuitive. There’s something grown-up and sophisticated about this that is welcome, but also highly irregular when you are popping up at a Spike TV event to promote a movie called Sex Tape. I’m not complaining; I actually like that and find it amusing, and while I don’t think I’d vote this FAB, per se, I actually like it and think it’s a great way to prove that sexiness isn’t determined by your skirt height.

is it YOUR choice?

CMTs Fug or Fab Carpet: Nicole Kidman in Giambattista Valli with Bonus Urban


I just love this picture of them:

She’s like, “oh you loveable scamp,” and he is like, “what can I say? I’m Keith Urban!” It looks like a promo shot for an ABC Family show about a loveable country music star who keeps getting into scrapes (due to his uncontrollably generous nature) and the tall, amused woman who loves him. Honestly,  I am sort of unexpectedly pleased that these two are still making it work. As I confessed during Cannes, I have a fondness for Nicole and I want her to be happy. And I also like Keith, even if his current haircut makes him look like he’s thinking about starting a boy band, which could ALSO happen on his ABC Family show. It could be him, JC Chasez (I want JC to have a job, you guys), Nick Lachey, and Scott Porter, who will ALSO need a job once Hart of Dixie is over, and we know he has moves.

But enough about this brilliant idea that’s going to make me my great fortune. Let’s talk about what Nicole is wearing. I’d like it better if it didn’t seem like she was wearing one dress over a wholly other dress. We don’t need to reinvent the dress by making it MORE Dress. Just do ONE dress that’s all the dress a person might need, you guys. It doesn’t seem all that complex.

Fug or Fab: Amanda Seyfried in Lanvin


Sometimes I start writing these things in a charitable mood and then I just devolve into crankiness and such is the case today:

The truth of the matter is that I think the dress is, by itself, potentially cool and interesting if deployed correctly and on the right person (Kirsten Dunst), and while she’s not necessarily the wrong person, DAMN IT EVERYONE, IT’S JUNE. I know she’s in Japan, and it’s sometimes gloomy there in June, but guess what? It’s often gloomy here in Los Angeles in June too and we STILL PULL IT TOGETHER and don’t come rolling out sporting November’s cocktail party widow weeds. I’M OUT.

(It’s really the shoes that pushed me over the edge.)

Fug or Fab: Naomi Campbell at the Glamour Woman of the Year Awards


Is there any better example of the power of the right person wearing….well, anything?

Because obviously, this is bold — I’m sure it’s a reference to SOMETHING, and I’m sure one of you will know, and if the reference is actually to “that crazy dream Naomi had last night about burlesque after working on too much night cheese,” I hope that Naomi herself pops by to let us know. I do think that it’s of a piece with the Intriguing Flapper-Inspired Looks we’ve been seeing lately and the truth is, while this is for all intents and purposes TOTALLY NUTBALLS, I actually think it’s kind of a kick. Albeit possibly a kick in the head.

CFDA Awards Fug or Fab: Emmy Rossum in J Mendel


I was about to comment that she almost could have worn this to the Met Ball, and that’s true, but I LOVED that Met Ball dress and would never have wanted to replace it.

Emmy Rossum in J Mendel at the CFDA Awards (1)

This is clearly related to the J Mendel that Anna Kendrick wore to the Oscars, except I wish Anna had worn this one. The bright spot of that dress was the back, and, indeed, the back of this one is kind of great, too:
