Fug or Fab: Jenna Coleman in Erdem at the Premiere of Victoria


Jenna Coleman is playing Queen Victoria in an eight-episode series that we in the United States will get next year. (If you missed it, we have the trailer here.)  It seems right that they’re having the premiere at the Orangery which is right there at Kensington Palace (which has a ton of Victoria exhibits, including an interesting one we saw while we were there in April, and where she lived for a long time). The Orangery, of course, is ALSO where Nicky Hilton got married last summer, causing me to have rage blackouts every time another media outlet claimed she was getting married in Kensington Palace. ANYWAY. Wow, that was a tangent. Back on topic: I don’t think I particularly like this dress, but I appreciate that it is such a modern take on a Victorian feel, so I’m coming down firmly in the camp of I Appreciate What You Are Going For Here. What say you?

Scrolldown Fug or Fab: Aya Cash at TCAs


We actually already saw Aya (You’re The Worst) in one slideshow today wearing something black-and-white and experimental, and now we’ve got her again:

FX Networks TCA 2016 Summer Press Tour

Despite my mixed feelings about the cut of the pants, I think she’s pulling this off quite well until we get to the shoes, which are… I mean, it’s a classic example of Be Careful About What You Bitch Incessantly. They could have been basic putty-colored nonsense, and so three cheers for sidestepping THAT; trust me, I know all the ways this could have pushed our regular hot buttons. But those are bonkers. She looks like she’s wearing bedroom slippers she bought at Epcot.

Fugs and Fabs: The HFPA Luncheon


Emma Stone was at this Hollywood Foreign Press event last week — man, the long seduction for a Golden Globe begins earlier and earlier every year — and I made a mental note to cover the rest of the attendees and promptly set that note on fire, I guess, because I am only now just getting to them. FORGIVE ME. I bring you Nate Parker and Christian Slater and Hugh Grant to help ease the pain.

Feh: Gwyneth Paltrow in Prada


This is an annual auction event in The Hamptons, and Gwynnie always likes to look undone and summery at it.

But this might be the MOST undone and the MOST summery. I honestly think she upgraded her shoe choice at the last second because sensible Apple wandered in and clucked, “Is THAT what you’re wearing? Isn’t it a NICE event?” Brush your hair, Gwynnie, and, er, try harder to keep the toys in the beach bag, okay?

Fug or Fab: Supergirl and her new Superman


CBS slid Supergirl over to The CW to join Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow, as we get closer and closer to renaming that network BerlanTV. (You just know some poor producer is weeping into a keg of coffee right now while trying to work out the logistics of a four-show crossover.) Anyway, as the shark over which it may already be jumping sharpens its teeth, Supergirl cast Teen Wolf‘s Tyler Hoechlin to play Superman — presumably just on a guest basis –and the two of them are now shooting scenes together. ET VOILA, your first look at a new Superman that isn’t the other new(ish) Superman.

Unfug or Fab: Cara Delevingne


This is, to put it super eloquently, a lot.

Cara Delevingne

It stresses me out. So many PARTS, and how does she not spend all day yanking the bootaloons up into place? Shoes should not take that long to zip, friend. But in truth, the first thing I would like to subtract is the string bra. It seems to be there because the boob panels on the bodice are so far apart, but it’s also super distracting. Its underwire — if it can be called that; I guess it IS wiry — and the top itself seem like they don’t agree on the location of her chest. I don’t mind the skirt, but honestly, I just want to take the great jacket and toss it together with a simple tank and leather pants, and be done with it. Easy breezy, unless you are Ross Gellar.

Fug or Fab: Kate Bosworth


I am not sure what I think of this as an outfit.

But it’s a beautiful formal dining room.
