Fug File: Fug or Fab

Fine or Fab: Reese Witherspoon in Stella McCartney

This is EXTREMELY straightforward and fine, in a gorgeous color. So it’s hard to imagine it being anything LESS than a resounding “fine.”

But it’s Stella McCartney. So the fact that this actually looks nice feels like a bigger victory than ordinarily it might, given that Stella’s name usually makes me want to run around waving my arms over my head and screaming, “IT’S A TRAP. GET OUT OF THERE.”

BAFTAs Fug or Fab: Felicity Jones in Dior

Damn it, getting to stand that close to Becks is a prize in and of itself.

BAFTAs Fug or Fab: Julianne Moore in Tom Ford

Her face is radiant. Her whole head is like, “Yep, I’ve got this. I am so excited for Feb. 22 that I can barely stop myself from screaming ACADEMY AWARD WINNER JULIANNE MOORE every time anyone asks me my coffee order.”

And I LOVE the true red on her. But while I think Julianne is doing this every justice she can, is it returning the favor? That top is depressingly creasy along the shores of Boobbados. It draws your eyes there for reasons other than, “WOW she is in good shape, for basically any age,” which I suspect she would’ve liked better.

Grammys Fug or Fab Carpet: Anna Kendrick in Band of Outsiders

I might have Awards Season Blindness — in which nothing makes sense anymore and also I start writing random words that are generally misspelled and eventually everything that comes out of my fingers is like potato pancakes waffle face kombucha — but! I am pretty sure this is good on her:

57th GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

I mean, right? Yes? Please validate me here. I do keep thinking she either needs a stronger lip or a necklace, to break up the expanse of flesh from forehead to abdomen, but you know what? I almost think either might have been a little cheesy on her, because she’s so small and easily overwhelmed. This might, in fact, be the first time that I could say that Anna Kendrick — whom I love — looks almost…bad-ass adjacent. (Not FULLY bad-ass, as I think she would agree, but delightfully near it.) I’m going to give this to her.

What do you think?

Grammys Fug or Fab Carpet: Rihanna in Giambattista Valli

Is it wrong that I found this hilariously entertaining and it filled me with glee?

Fug or Fab: Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson

JAMIE: Why do people think we hate each other?

DAKOTA: Can’t imagine. Why didn’t you button your shirt and wear a tie?

JAMIE: Why didn’t you brush your hair?

DAKOTA: It’s in a braid!

JAMIE: Not a proper braid. And my shirt IS buttoned.

DAKOTA: Not that it helps. God, you’re hairy right now.

JAMIE: Well, that sweater of yours is itchy.

DAKOTA: Who cares? You don’t have to wear it.

JAMIE: I’ll be wearing it all over my suit jacket. You’re like a cat.

DAKOTA: I hope so.

JAMIE: How do you mean?

DAKOTA: Cats have nine lives. And they always land on their feet.

JAMIE: And you think you’ll need both after this movie comes out?

DAKOTA: Bingo.

JAMIE: Me too. We’re in this together, I guess. Make the best of it.

DAKOTA: Deal. … Although why are you wearing brown shoes with that? It’s sort of distracting, and…

JAMIE: Hmm, why do people think we hate each other?

DAKOTA: Can’t imagine. Why didn’t….

JAMIE: Never mind.
