Fug File: Fugs

Your Afternoon Chat: What You Wear on the Plane

Let’s look at all these celebs getting on and off planes, and talk about travel wear.  You guys know I love talking about packing, and I also love articles about What To Wear On the Plane. I will read every single one of them. (I spent all morning reading this post on Into The Glossabout Joan Didion’s packing list.) Literally, I don’t care: you have an article about wearing things on a plane/packing for a trip, I WILL READ IT. So, let’s talk Plane Wear Hints and Packing Tips and The One Thing You Always Put In Your Carry-On and all that stuff. My own personal rule is just that I have to bring a scarf or a sweater because I am always really, really really cold on a plane/in an airport. I own like nine random pashminas that I have bought in airports across the world. I once spent like $40 on a fleece blanket in the Austin airport because I was so cold. And yet I am surprised every time this happens.

The Fug-or-Fab Life: Tyra Banks

I usually rather like Tyra’s new spunky short haircut, and she can pull off stuff — by virtue of her wackadoo Tyraness — that few other people can. This post from the Daytime Emmys is a shining example of the good hair and cockamamie clothes that work. But this? I have doubts:

It’s Dynasty mixed with a shoulder split mixed with toe shoes mixed with soft ankle restraints mixed with a monasterial bowl cut tinged with something that shrank in the wash. Too much, Tyra. Which, incidentally, is also my three-word review of Modelland, her YA book, and if you haven’t read it… if you want ANTM meets Harry Potter meets Pan’s Labyrinth meets actual Labyrinth meets LSD, then it is the book for you.

We should also discuss her new talk show, which co-stars Chrissy Teigen and Joe Zee. The short trailer for it is after the jump:

Mostly Well Played, Christina Applegate

To me, this is a real scrolldown fug, and you have to REALLY scroll WAY down for it to go truly wrong, as far as I am concerned (you may disagree, of course, and PLEASE DO):

'Vacation' Los Angeles Premiere

I feel like the shoes are a weird choice — I might just be over the platform in this particular iteration? — but mostly, she looks swell. That zing of yellow is fresh, like the clothing version of a splash of citrus. All that said: Vacation seems like a travesty of truth and justice, and if you are one of those people who delights in reading brutal movie reviews, between it and Pixels, this week must feel like Christmas.

The Recent Fugs and Fabs of Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo is one of those Famous For No Reason people — she was on The City, with Whitney Port, where she mostly just had great hair, and during That One Year That New York Socialites Were Really A Thing, she famously allegedly wrote this letter to a bunch of other socialites, telling them to be nicer, which was then leaked. (You really need to read that article, by the way. It’s fascinating. I once witnessed one of the people who wrote Socialite Rank fall over a wall onto a runway at Fashion Week and break his arm, at a show that was totally a deathtrap, which is mentioned in the piece. Those were the days for a Fashion Week reporter, you guys. Stuff really happened.) Well, who’s laughing now? OP is the only one that’s ever getting photographed anymore, and she has done a ton of consulting and branding work. Who knows if she’s any good at it, really, but she’s DOING it. She’s also, I must admit, legitimately pretty good at dressing herself. Let’s look at some of the stuff she’s worn lately.

Your Afternoon Man: Chris Hemsworth

With Chris inching closer to global domination — he’s entrenched in the Marvel world, he’s in the new Vacation, he landed the new Ghostbusters — it’s high time we discuss exactly what Chris is doubtless pondering: When Mount Hemsmore is carved into the landscape of his native Australia, which hair should crown him?

Fugs and Fabs: The Recent Candids of Elle Fanning

The paparazzi are ALL OVER Fanning The Younger lately, and it turns out she has ten movies set to come out in the next year or so. Like, real ones: She’s playing a transgender teen in a movie with Naomi Watts and Susan Sarandon; she’s in the All The Bright Places adaptation; she’s in the new Ben Affleck/Dennis Lehane movie with Zoe Saldana and Sienna Miller and Bffleck himself; she’s playing Mary Shelley (!); she’s in How to Talk to Girls at Parties, which is the John Cameron Mitchell/Neil Gaiman movie with Kidman; and she’s in the new Bryan Cranston movie about Dalton Trumbo with such lightweights as Helen Mirren and John Goodman. And that’s not even all of it. I got tired just looking all of that up. SO, in other words, get ready for your fill of Elle Fanning, if such a thing there can be. (I appreciate her. Sometimes she wears crazy stuff, which, yay, and also I loved her in Super 8.).
