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:

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.

Fug or Fab: Sophie Turner in Louis Vuitton

First of all, I love you, Sansa Stark. You were great this season and I am rooting for you. And some of that fondness for her fictional self spills over to Sophie Turner here:

Which is why I am ever so slightly concerned that this dress might be composed at least partially of spitballs.

Fug or Fab: Gabrielle Union in Marc Jacobs at the BET Awards

I just keep coming around to this haiku: Gabrielle Union // gorgeous lady drowning in // bordello curtains.

Fug or Fab: Chloe Grace Moretz

I think it’s telling that I looked at this frock on CGM — a dress covered in fishing lures, through which we can see her leotard — and thought, “oh, ma, I’ve seen WAY worse.”

And what it’s telling me is that I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.

Fug or Fab: Emma Stone with Billie Jean King

Emma Stone here is presenting an award to Billie Jean King at the Logo Trailblazer Honors, because she’s playing BJK in Battle of the Sexes, which is about the time Billie Jean destroyed Bobby Riggs – and, by the way, if you want to fall down a wormhole, that Wiki page will take you there. (To wit: “King entered the Astrodome in Cleopatra style, carried aloft in a chair held by four bare-chested muscle men dressed in the style of ancient slaves. Riggs followed in a rickshaw drawn by a bevy of scantily clad models. Riggs presented King with a giant lollipop and she gave him a piglet.” To which I can only say: ????!!!!??!) (Said tennis match is also stuff of legend in my family, because my 24 year old mother won a bunch of money off her father by betting on Billie Jean, a bet I suspect my grandfather took in part just to get her riled up.) ANYWAY, Billie Jean looks terrifically like herself — the coordinated glasses delight me — and I look forward to seeing her Sportfaces over Wills’ and Kate’s shoulders in the next couple of weeks at Wimbledon. As for Emma, she ALSO looks very much like herself from the neck up:

From the neck down, I don’t even know. I LOVE YOU, Emma Stone, so much, but this looks like you realized your white day dress was too boring so you layered an old cocktail waitress uniform over it and hoped for the best, and the best missed the bus.

Fug or Fine: Olivia Munn in Vatanika

From Attack of the Show

Olivia Munn

… to Attack of the Sheers. Which also sounds like a movie I wish the Mystery Science Theatre 3000 lads could dissect. I’m sure we would have the same comment on both: It could be worse, but it sure could be better.
