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?

Vanity Fair Oscar Fug or Fab: Saoirse Ronan in Valentino


This may surprise you, but I actually kind of love this:

I’m not totally on board with the gym hair, but at the same time, I get it: this dress is a whole lot going on, so you don’t want your hair to look Too Done. She takes a lot of clothing risks — a lot of ones that I think don’t pay off, but, as I always say: Who cares? Take it off and try again tomorrow — but this time I think Baby Blanchett here hit it out of the park. This is sweet but also quirky; unusual, but not ugly. I vote yes.

How do you vote?

Oscar Red Carpet Fug or Fab: Margot Robbie in Saint Laurent


Margot Robbie is filming a movie right now, which is why she is brunette. And Margot Robbie is brunette right now, which is why she is unrecognizable. And Margot Robbie is unrecognizable right now, which is why I think she kind of punted on this dress:

It feels very, “eh, no one is even going to realize that it’s me. Who even cares? Get me something I can sit down in.”

The back, however, brings with it a tang of that 80s flair from Wolf of Wall Street:

Oscars Fug or Fab Carpet: Kristen Bell in Roberto Cavalli


I have to give it to Kristen Bell. Jessica and I were talking about the whole “stop running unauthorized paparazzi photos of children” movement that she has spearheaded with such success, and how Jennifer Garner must be thinking, “God damn, I had to haul up to Sacramento to testify to the state assembly, and nobody cared, and all she has to do is Tweet a strongly worded letter?!?” Then again, Jennifer Garner probably doesn’t care who got people to listen, as long as the lenses stop hanging out outside her children’s school and literally chasing them all up and down Montana in Santa Monica, which Jessica has seen happen, and described to me in detail as a super freaky-ass situation.

What I think will be the interesting by-product: The way the photos that are okayed expose which celebrities are complicit in their photographed adventures in and out of medical buildings, on the way to ballet class, to the pumpkin patch, etc. All the publications that are banning these pictures have said that they’ll run them if there was parental consent; presumably calling the paps on yourself counts.

Anyway: Kristen Bell. She can kickstart your movie AND your child’s safety. Can she kickstart my metabolism and my wrinkle cream, too? I mean, come on, spread the love.
