Fug File: Fug or Fab

Fug or Fab: Jess Weixler in Miu Miu

Part of me loves this, in that way you love a weird old tunic you found in your grandmother’s stuff that has just about found its way back in fashion.

Jess Weixler

And then part of me is worried her Pieces of Flair have caught a disease.

Is it your bag?

Fugs or Fabs: Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie is back to blonde, and thus recognizable again. First off, she’s really bringing it for Slytherin in Marc Jacobs:

Fashion Group International's Night of Stars-NY

Actually, I would totally buy a bag from Marc Jacobs For Slytherin. Marc is GREAT at accessories, and nothing’s more slithery and chic than snakeskin. Maybe with a wee turban as the clasp, and when you turn the turban to open the bag, the top comes off and Ralph Fiennes’s face is under there. Perfect! Take all my money, Marc!

She went considerably more angelic last night, though:

Fug or Fab: Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli

As a Very Pale Person, I’m always excited to a fellow Very Pale Person wearing white, because sometimes when I wear my own white dress, I feel like I might just look like floating hair and a necklace.

Fug or Fab: Jessica Alba in Lela Rose

Gather round, friends, and take a good look at Jessica Alba:

SELF Joyce Chang, Jessica Alba Caley Yavorsky and Allyson Felix Luncheon

Point the first: She’s wearing this as it was shown on the runway, but as our friends at Red Carpet Fashion Awards point out, it works better on the model (probably because the model is taller).

Point the second: I, too, like both pieces separately, but am unsure about them together.

Point the third: Does her shirt seem to be covered in fishing lures?

Point the fourth: But are they kind of CUTE fishing lures?

Point the fifth: CAN fishing lures be cute?

Fug or Fab: Laura Carmichael and Mia Wasikowska

It’s possible you will WHOLLY disagree on me on one of both of these, but that’s just something I’m going to have to live with, isn’t it?

Fug or Fab: Zendaya in Vivienne Westwood

This will be an interesting juxtaposition — I just talked about Chloe Grace Moretz, and how sometimes her clothing choices outpace her age in a way that makes them a hard sell. Zendaya also brings a weird maturity to what she wears, but sometimes she pulls it off better.


I can’t decide if this is one of those times. Vivienne Westwood is also what I consider to be a mature clothing brand, and Zendaya is only eighteen, but in a weird way the part of this that I think is eating her alive is the wig. With the dress itself, the skirt is lovely, the bodice is sort of okay I guess… but I think the wearer looks like she just stood there while someone dressed her up like a paper doll.

I can't decide. Please zend a hand. HA HA HA. Sigh.
