Fug or Fab: Sienna Miller


First of all, this totally looks like she’s wearing a throw blanket:

But I still kind of like it? IS THAT CRAZY? (I own 37 striped shirts.)

IS IT CRAZY?

Golden Globes Fug or Fab: Michelle Monaghan in Jason Wu


I keep going back and forth on this:

The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

It’s SO simple. But that’s kind of great. But it’s SO 90s. But that’s kind of cool. But it might feel underfinished? But maybe that’s what makes it good. JUST TELL ME HOW TO FEEL.

Golden Globes Unfug or Fab: Julianna Margulies in Ulyana Sergeenko


Apparently in 2015, all my ceaseless griping will be about length and stumpification. Case in point:

Julianna Margulies at the 2015 Golden Globes

Julianna Margulies had this made for her, and it starts out so well, and then quits on itself in that same type of hem that Tina Fey’s Antonio Berardi had. I wish this had gone all the way to the floor, gracefully, because the interesting fabric and bodice pleats mean it didn’t NEED a horizontal line chopping it up. Or, she could have cut it off where that seam is and worn it to another event. One or the other, and I’d have been inclined to go with the former. Sometimes, a pattern can do a bit of work for you. Let it.

Of course, I also take issue with the styling. The necklace is perfect, but I would have loved a bracelet — of course — and I don’t think her lipstick is assertive enough, whereas her blush might be TOO assertive to the point of not being blended. Further, her hair is VERY stuffy and First Lady, in a way that’s surprisingly severe given how much volume it has. I just always want Alicia Florrick to make me drool, you know? And this isn’t tweaking my glands.

However, if you want to drool:

Golden Globes Fug or Fab: Jennifer Aniston in Saint Laurent


These are two VERY TAN HUMANS:

The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Although they also look happy — I kind of hope they announce that they’ve been secretly married for two years and they’ve just been screwing with us  — and quite leggy. When Aniston got up on stage to present last night, I kept yelling at her to BE CAREFUL, because she came very close to showing us her Rachel Green, and indeed, that skirt means saucy business. Over all, this feels like kind of a punt — she doesn’t look bad, but the dress feels sort of half-assed on the part of Saint Laurent — and yet the fact that I watched like twelve straight episodes of Friends over the weekend makes me extra fond of Jen A. once again. So I might give them both a cheery wave and let them pass by. What do you think?

Golden Globes Fug or Fab: Ruth Wilson and Maggie Gyllenhaal in Prada and Miu Miu


Maggie Gyllenhaal said she and Ruth Wilson were flipping through look books together trying to pick their Globes dresses — they are, after all, both selections from The Collected Works of Miuccia Prada — so let’s see if they steered each other right or astray.

Ruth here won for The Affair, which is obviously very popular with the six randos who probably make up the Hollywood Foreign Press. (This is our excuse to discuss it: I felt like the MASSIVE divergences between both sides of the story went beyond a statement on the subjectivity of memory and straight into “the writers got freaked out it would be too repetitive otherwise and overcompensated in the other direction.”) And despite my frustration with a show that I thought got worse as it went along, she IS good on it, if also guilty of the accent sins Amy Poehler parodied on the telecast.

Ruth Wilson Golden Globes

I am not as grudgingly respectful of her gown. The color is intriguing, but the photo doesn’t get across the fact that all that detail looks kind of frayed and tired, like someone turned it inside out to mend a seam and then forgot to flip it back again. As if to say, “LOOK HOW MUCH WORK THIS WAS,” and not, “Look how lovely this woman is.” Always a mistake.

Am I being too harsh?

Maggie’s is DEFINITELY right-side-out, but it doesn’t help much:

Golden Globes Fug or Fab: George and Amal (in Dior)


I am underwhelmed:

The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards -Arrivals-in Los Angeles

George — in his wedding tux — looks appropriately George-ishly dashing, and Amal’s basic black Dior is lovely and understated, which is apt when you’re not the honoree. (And she accessorized her purse with a “Je Suis Charlie,” pin, which was a thoughtful and lovely touch; the Clooneys were not alone in this, either, at all — they’re just the first I’ve covered today who’ve done so.) HOWEVER. Those gloves. We need to talk about them. I am not a fan — they make this look like her prom, or her debutante ball, and if Amal A. Clooney is anything, it is not a blushing teen or a fresh young debutante. (Er, not that I’m saying she’s, like, a stale old hag — I AM NOT — but merely that she’s a grown-up accomplished person and that I fear these look like a weirdo rookie mistake. Just show up places looking like a sophisticated boss all the time, lady. BE THE DIANE LOCKHART OF GEORGE’S WIVES.)
