Fug File: Fugs

BRIT Awards Better-Only-On-A-Technicality Carpet: Rita Ora


Blessedly, her bum is not extruding gossamer black fabric — a sentence, by the way, that a person in this world should never, ever have to type.

And in one sense, this is her pushing back in the other direction from that Oscar post-party outfit, given that she’s wearing a jumpsuit that also has its own skirt — as if she’s double-bagging herself after having merely quarter-bagged it in L.A. But it’s still a see-through jumpsuit and an equally translucent skirt, so even though the gentle gold sparkles are alluring, the effect is Same As It Ever Was. Aren’t you bored of rolling the Bits Dice to see which ones you show us today, Rita?

Oscars 2015: Fug Nation’s Worst-Dressed


And, the worst-dressed. Same rules apply as with best-dressed: All the contenders are in one slideshow, but the telecast and post-parties are split up in the polls. Which are after the jump, because: long. Judge, then convict.

Fugs or Fabs: Kristen Stewart in Chanel


While we were prepping for and then covering the Oscars, Kristen Stewart was off in Paris winning a Cesar Award. (That’s basically the French Academy Award; she is the first American actress to ever win one, for Clouds of Sils Maria. Between that, and the accolades she’s getting for Still Alice, this year has been very good for her career. [The story to which I just linked also told me that K Stew's dad is the stage manager for ABC's Oscars pre-show, a factoid I love for some reason.])

Win THE ROYAL WE From Goodreads


Just popping into our Oscars coverage to let you all know that Goodreads is currently giving away fifteen autographed ARCs of The Royal We! (ARCs, for those of you who don’t know, are advanced reader copies. It’s basically the second to last version of the book, printed early to go out to reviewers and librarians and book sellers and whatnot, from the draft that happens before our final pass. Which means they’re in short supply and they’re very slightly different from the final copy, which makes them nifty collectors items. Our ARC, for example, has got one section where a VERY IMPORTANT WORD is missing. [Don't worry, we fixed that for the finished copies.])

In case you haven’t heard, The Royal We is our forthcoming novel, which comes out on April 7th.
