Fug File: Fug or Fab

Fug or Fab: Diane Kruger in Jason Wu

I kind of like this, on a noncommittal, theoretical level.

But does it also look like weirdly imprecise surgery?

Fug or Fab: Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton at the Jason Bourne Premiere

I have a lot of notes about this. Mostly that it feels like three different dresses that have been melded together.

Fug or Fab: Angie Harmon

I think Angie Harmon is so extremely pretty, and she was also my favorite Law & Order ADA — a very important determination every woman must make after careful, measured consideration — which always prejudices me in her favor in a way which is possibly unfair. Abbie Carmichael was just always so straight-forwardly grossed out by various crimes, as well illustrated in this clip here, captured by our friend and Previously.TV head honcho, Tara Ariano:

Hands down the greatest moment of Angie Harmon’s career/life.

So I WANT to like this. You know, for her. And there are things about it that I appreciate:

However, when I saw it, the thought that popped into my head was, “this would look GREAT on Britney,” and now I can’t unsee that, y’all.

Fug or Fab: Jennifer Garner in Versace

J.Gar leaned on Versace for her big Oscars appearance after the Vanity Fair article, and so it makes sense that she’d show up to support Donatella at the couture show. But it also kind of makes me wish Jennifer Garner would turn up at ALL the couture shows, wearing ALL the designers. Much like how I want her to flit about town dating every eligible actor out there. DO IT UP RIGHT, GARNER.

Energetically Played: Zac Efron and Adam Devine at the Premiere of Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

Jessica was telling me that she hates the poster for this movie, and I promptly saw one, and I agree. The slogan is, “They asked for nice girls. They got hot messes.”┬áSince when are those two things mutually exclusive? I hope that’s the moral of the story.

Fug or Fab: Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza at the Premiere of Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

Aubrey here is wearing Prada, and it’s not as stodgy as Prada has felt recently, so thumbs up there.

Aubrey Plaza

There’s also something pleasantly, kickily nautical about it — but is that maybe because it looks like she made it out of things she found on an actual boat? Every two seconds, I flip from, “Totally cute,” to “A high-fashion sandwich board just waiting for an ad to find it,” and back again.

But at least it’s trying something. The same cannot be said of Anna Kendrick’s frock.

Fug or Fab: Gemma Arterton

I’m torn. I can’t decide if I think this is pretty and delicate, or TOO MUCH PINK:

National Film & Television School's Gala - Red Carpet Arrivals

On the other hand, if this event was partially sponsored by Bollinger, perhaps she’s merely in costume as a glass of rose. I cannot hold that against anyone.
