Fug File: Fugs

Unimaginatively Played, Olivia Munn

I have run through a hundred potential angles on this thing, and all I keep coming back to is that showing up at a ballet opening as the black swan is SO lazy and boring.

Olivia Munn

Wear this to the VMAs if you want. Wear it to the premiere of the third season of The Newsroom that somehow exists even though nobody was clamoring for it. Wear it to a Natalie Portman-themed Halloween party, and then wear it to bed in the hopes that you will win an Oscar by osmosis. Whatever you need to do. But this is the ballet. Old ladies will be there in, like, Carolina Herrera suits and ball gowns. Blow it out with something big and dramatic, if you want, but it’s just weird to me to dress for the ballet as if you’re in a ballet. Which, in this case, is a little like Swan Lake mated with Clan of the Cave Bear.

Fugs and Fabs: The GQ Gentleman’s Ball.

I accidentally titled this post, “The GQ Gentleman’s Balls,” which is not gentlemanly at all. That said, as promised, this DOES bring you gentlemen, from Pacey to Riggins. Wait, quick: someone write a think piece called From Pacey to Riggins, about the secondary hot dude that everyone falls in love with on TV shows set in high schools.

Well Played Waxwork, Benedict Cumberbatch

I looked at these photos of the girls meeting this waxwork and said, aloud to the empty room, “I love people.” In their defense, this waxwork is good enough that they might be able to pass it off as the real thing in a dark room to a person who’s forgotten their glasses.

Fugson’s Creek: Katie Holmes

Well, her lipstick is fun? Her hair might be good? She seems happy? The book she writes in sixty years about how perfectly she was extracted from Scientology/Tom Cruise is going to be AMAZING? And now that I’d led with the good:

The 2014 Skin Cancer Foundation Gala

I should tell you that I’ve become so inured to The Jumpsuit that I literally just thought to myself, “huh, this might need different shoes.” I’m going to take to my bed now.

Your Afternoon Man: Clive Owen

I don’t know about the whole ensemble, exactly…

Clive Owen

… but I do know that Clive Owen in a Touch Me blazer (that’s what I call anything with texture that begs to be stroked) is something Fug Nation would not want to miss.

Love, Fuggie: Lily Collins in Pamella Roland

It’s like my grandmother always said:

Lily Collins

When life gives you a flea collar, just give up and throw on the worst pants you can find, because you and your stylist are officially in a fight.
