Fug or Fab: Chloe Grace Moretz in Donna Karan

* This was supposed to go up at 10 a.m. TOMORROW but accidentally appeared in that time slot today, at around 1 p.m. I’m bumping her up now for the people who wouldn’t have looked for a random new entry suddenly slotted beneath The Good Wife because WHY WOULD THERE BE ONE and ugh. 

Sometimes I think that whoever is styling Chloe Grace Moretz is pretending she’s 24.

She has interesting taste, she’s really bold, never daunted, always sells it with her face by never looking doubtful or miserable — seriously, Chloe will wear the exact same expressions whether she’s in couture or a cereal box. But she’s a bit lost in this, despite even those efforts; I think it would have benefited from being on a Jaime King or a Jessica Alba. It needs a grown-up, and Chloe shouldn’t be in a hurry to become one. Donna Karan isn’t a 17-year old’s game. Among other things, isn’t that what DKNY is for?

Fug or Fab: Kristen Stewart in Chanel

This is another gift to the Stew fans.

Also, I couldn’t resist. Her smile is so arresting. It’s the reason we harped on her in the past for not bringing it out more — she doesn’t have to be happy-go-lucky, but just say “cheese” sometimes to the camera and it changes the entire narrative. I also like the short hair on her; well played for THAT part of the outfit, anyway.

But let’s take in the whole shebang.

Fug or Fab: Michelle Monaghan in Simone Rocha

First I like this, then I didn’t like it, then I did like it, then I just didn’t know:

The Best of Me Premieres in LA

No doubts on the shoes: They’re fantastic and I’ll be home today from 10am-3pm to sign for them, thank you very much. The dress, though, feels a bit like Angry Betty Draper has a baby with a picnic tablecloth and the weird thing is, I don’t even mean that as an insult. I like picnics AND Angry Betty Draper is gorgeous and always well-dressed. So I am going to come down, tentatively, on the side of the angels here. But what say you?

Fugs and Fug or Fab: Kristen Stewart

I must admit I’m glad she’s got a movie to promote. At least she’s rarely boring, god bless her. Today brings us a LOT of leather and leather-like items of various levels of success.

Well Played: Emily Blunt in Roland Mouret

She really looks like she’s rethinking this:

I can’t think why; she looks delicious. Unless she’s just realized that she REALLY hates Creamsicles and now she looks like their most glamorous spokesperson.

Unfug or Fab: Diane Kruger in Michael van der Ham

First order of business: Diane Kruger has joined Instagram (@dianekrugerperso), and is not opposed to posting photos of Pacey. I consider this a public service announcement.

Second: This dress is mostly cute, but I can’t decide what I would tinker with to sell it harder. I don’t think the shin window adds any particular romance to this, as usual — but honestly, I think what’s throwing me more is the upper-arm loops. They’re heavy enough that they make any tinkering I want to do with the skirt turn into something frumpy. Like, if I shorten the skirt, suddenly the loops become LOOPS. They are The Feature. And I’m not sure if I want that. Ditto if I lengthen the skirt. I MIGHT cut off the loops? And then hem the skirt where the slip stops. Or, just fully line it. Or even leave it. The moral of this story is, I am indecisive, and can’t remember where I’ve seen those Dior shoes before. Please send help on both counts.

Oh, but before you vote, some unfinished business:
