Fug File: Fug or Fab

Fug or Fab: Jessie J


I must begin this post with a caveat and that caveat is that I may very well be totally crazy right now. I’ve been putting in a lot of hours lately and it’s possible that I’ve got some version of Stockholm Syndrome where I just start liking crazy stuff because my subconscious wants someone to come over and drag me away from the computer. (By “someone” you understand, I hope, that I mean “Jon Hamm,” and by “away from the computer,” I mean, “to Hawaii,” right? Just so we’re clear.) ANYWAY, that extremely long caveat aside, is this kind of cute or what?

I mean, it’s CRAZY. She looks like she’s wearing the bearskin rug that generally lives in front of her fireplace, but I feel like it’s crazy in a cute way. It’s crazy in the way of your crazy friend who pulls off stuff that you’d never try, but which you still like to admire (and, in this case, pet) at brunch.

Do you feel me?

Fug or Fab the Cover: Lena Dunham on Glamour


Last month, she was on Vogue, this month she’s on Glamour. Not too shabby, Lena Dunham:

I’m on record as liking the Vogue cover a lot, but I’m not quite as enamored of this one. It’s not her fault; I actually think her FACE looks great, if a wee bit dead-eyed. But I’m rarely a fan of the “oh god, you guys, I have such a headache” posing and OMG Glamour, we’re ALL over talking about her body so NO NEED TO PUT THAT ON THE COVER right OVER said body. Additionally, somewhere in a hidden room of a gelato warehouse, Tyra Banks just woke up in a cold sweat. She’s felt the presence of neckless cover shot in the universe and her chi is rattled.

How do you like it?

Fug or Fab: Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring at the New York Screening of Veronica Mars


It’s nice of them to give the Mars fans lots of material to squee over. Me, I wish Alex O’Loughlin would reunite with Jason Dohring for a movie version of Moonlight, where he was a vampire/PI who could smell the past — NO, LITERALLY — and Dohring was his depressed, bad-boy vampire mentor/fiend who moped a lot whilst wearing vests. That’s my Kickstarter, you guys.

SO ANYWAY, about Kristen's dress!

Fug or Fab: Anne Hathaway at the Elsa and Fred Premiere


I don’t even know why I’m putting this to a vote except maybe the time change has made me kinder (it has not; it’s made me violent and sleepy, which is at least not a very productive combination):

I may honestly just be cutting her some slack because the idea of Anne Hathaway deciding to do all her wardrobe replenishing at Cost Plus World Market this spring is entertaining to me. “Yes, I will buy this charming camel made of brightly colored fabric remnants. And I will also buy this adorable ceramic soap dish shaped like a turtle! Oh, yes, and some wine. And then some more wine. And some wrapping paper. And some obscure foreign candy! Excellent. Wait. What did I come here for again? RIGHT. A potentially flammable and slightly shapeless maxi-dress they’ve stocked here by the woven Venetian blinds since 1998. Done! Ooh, I also need a new bathmat!”

At least she’s not wearing the bath mat.

What do you think?

Vanity Fair Oscar Party Unfug or Fab: Selena Gomez in Emilio Pucci


New couple alert:

This will obviously upset Justin Bieber’s apple cart, as he Instagrammed Internet photos of Selena in this dress along with schmoopy sentiments about what a goddess she is, because clearly he thinks they would still be a good idea even though the Greek chorus that is THE ENTIRE PLANET is screaming, “HOLSTER IT, TWERP.”

Let’s look at Selena’s gown without the accessory of one Mr. Bill Murray:

Vanity Fair Oscar Party Fug or Fab: Elizabeth Banks in Jenny Packham


One of the many things I like about Elizabeth Banks is that she is NEVER boring. Even if I don’t like what she’s wearing, she never shies from color and pattern and she’s ALWAYS interesting. I applaud that. And she LOVES wearing a feathered skirt to the Vanity Fair party, as she did it in 2012, as well:

I like this effort SO much more than that; I’m just not sure if this is equal to the sum of its parts. Let’s do some figuring: the shoes are amazing; the color is divine; it’s refreshing to see someone show up at this event NOT wearing a giant gown for once; and, obviously, who doesn’t like a dramatic feathered cocktail skirt? I am, on the other hand, EXTREMELY sad she didn’t wear the matching coat. It’s possible that I’m delirious on lack of sleep, but as kooky as this is, I find it – and her — charming, and so I’m going to hand her the win here.

Will YOU?
