Fug or Fab: Naomi Watts in Jason Wu

Well, “head” and “toe” are fine. It’s getting between them that has me straddling the fence.

Naomi Watts, "St. Vincent" premiere

Naomi has done a lot of good things to keep from being washed out, and I WANT to appreciate them; unfortunately I’m too distracted by the pattern. She’s almost pulling it off, but it’s just such a jerky-jerky mishmash in places that it feels like a patchwork ode to interior design elements of the 1980s (seriously, turn her top upside down, and I think I saw a frosted-glass sconce that was its twin).

let’s peek closer


Fug or Fab: Greta Gerwig

I both love this and think it would make an AMAZING backsplash in the country kitchen I don’t own:

And because I can’t make any legitimate judgment on something if I can’t stop imagining a stainless steel faucet coming out of it, I turn to you:

Fug or Fab: Marion Cotillard in Dior

I have a lot of thoughts.

The 2014 New York Film Festival presents 'Two Days, One Night'

Primarily among them being, “Jennifer Lawrence would have looked ABSURD in this,” so let’s all be grateful that she’s really busy canoodling about town with Chris Martin right now and not in the midst of a press junket. But my other feelings are, in no particular order: That coat might be great, it might be a bathrobe, it might be a great bathrobe; does Marion Cotillard have an amazing Dior bathrobe at home? I bet she does; this outfit makes her look short; it ispossible I might feel that her shorts need to be higher-waisted, and did I really just say that??! It is, in short — no pun intended –a real mixed bag.

Fug or Fab: Shailene Woodley in Dior

I am always amused when celebs have to pose for red carpet pics in front of giant photos of their own heads, especially when their giant face looks SO CONCERNED, as Poster Shai looks here (albeit with amazing lipstick):

'White Bird' Premiere In Paris

I think Poster Shai is thinking what I am thinking, which is, “you look awesome from the ankles up, but I am not sure I can sign off on open-toed wrestling shoes, dude.”

Are YOU concerned?

Fug or Fab: Lea Michele in Cushnie et Ochs

I think Lea Michele is really angling for the Boobs Legsly title, now that Blake Lively seems to have more or less retired her position. The bad news, Lea, is that your name does not as easily lend itself to the pun. Work on that, and get back to us with suggestions, and then we’ll talk. (“Legs Micleavage?”)

Fug or Fab: Diane Kruger in Elie Saab

Always and forever, I love those shoes. And her escort, even if he is looking a little rumpled”

The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences' Hollywood Costume Opening Party - Arrivals

The truth is, I’m even willing to sign off on this entire look — yes, it’s like lingerie under a blazer, but the lingerie is fabulous and the jacket is, too — but I might just be getting Sheer Stockholm Syndrome and it’s entirely possible that I’m no longer a reliable narrator.

Please be the voice of reason:
