Fug File: Fugs

Fug or Fab: Keira Knightley’s Latest (and the Dudes of The Imitation Game)

I honestly don’t know what happened over the last few years for me to go from being neutral at best on Keira to loving her, but here we are. What can I say? The heart wants what it wants. I’m Jessica. I’m a weirdo. I’m also a weirdo who has packed this slideshow with extras: Cumberbunny! Matthew Goode! Branson! The Future Mrs Cumberblunder! Etc!

Fugs and Fabs: Matthew McConaughey’s Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

These things have become a full-on PR event (not that they weren’t before). Lately, they’re attended regularly by — WHAT A COINCIDENCE! — the people who just HAPPEN to be starring with the honoree in his new movie! That said, who wouldn’t go to a Walk of Fame event for Mister All Right All Right All Right? And both Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain seem to be having a ball. Jessica, at least, should be pleased. She looks AWESOME.

Hollywood Film Awards Well Played: Shailene Woodley in Valentino

Let’s first and foremost be grateful that she lined this, given its runway look. (I really did think it was going to end up on Keira.)

18th Annual Hollywood Film Awards - Press Room

Second: While that bodice looks Extra Low on someone who isn’t a model, and therefore I wonder if maybe we’d all be better off with like…20% less sternum,  I do continue to think this dress is completely lovely. VERY Floaty Fairytale, and therefore a nice treat on a Monday. Thank you, Shailene.

Hollywood Film Awards Fugs and Fabs: The Dudes

Let’s eyeball some dudes in suits.



Well Wine Cardigan’d: Jessica Alba

The headline of the photo pretty much says everything.

Jessica Alba

Well, no. It doesn’t cover how I think the Toms make her look like she’s wearing two left shoes. But if she’d lend me that divine wine cardigan, I’d happily crack open a bottle to dissect the issue. It’s SCREAMING for a cold night and some well-decanted Shiraz.

Fugs and Pieces, November 14, 2014


– You’re going to enjoy Benderplants Cumbylarks doing 11 imitations of other celebs in one minute (some of them MUCH better than others). (Vulture)

Mr Darcy’s house is for sale! By which I mean, the house that Pemberley was based on. And it’s ONLY 11 million dollars! (Because it needs….forty-two million dollars worth of repairs.) Regardless, let’s Kickstart this thing and make it Fug HQ. As Curbed points out, THERE’S A BEAR PIT. (In all seriousness, I hope someone terrifically rich and historically-sensitive buys it and somehow makes a go of it, although it’s going to be a challenge. We’re up to it, right?)

– Let’s give it up for Carmelo Anthony’s post-game hat game. (WSJ)

– Let’s talk about what’s happening with R Pattz’s hair cut? (I assume it HAS to be for a role? It amuses me anyway.) (Glamour)

– The Cut just wrote a whole big old slideshow OF COATS. COATS.

– Over at Girls of a Certain Age, everyone is discussing their first crazy splurge purchase.

The new Fifty Shades of Grey trailer is upon us. I continue to have doubts, although I think it’s better than the first one. He is extremely hot, and I really like her, so I’m sort of hoping this whole thing is quickly forgotten for everyone’s good fortune, because I just don’t see a way where it isn’t…cheesy, I guess? (Lainey)

– Speaking of, I’ve been waiting for a moment to link to Jamie Dornan on Graham Norton. He is flat-out so charming and funny in this clip. (YouTube)

Let’s read about The History of The Spectacle! Many of us would be blind without them, and I, at least, would also miss being able to rip off my reading glasses in a rage for dramatic effect on occasion. (All Things Georgian)

– Pajiba’s take on GOOP’s Gift Guide pleases me. Y’all, she included A FIVE THOUSAND DOLLAR GOLD JUICER. Look, I love the occasional High Priced Item on a gift list, as is born out by OUR gift guides yearly, but even MC Hammer would look at a five thousand dollar gold juicer and be nice, “dude, get a hold of yourself.”

– Let’s handicap which dude we think is going to take the People‘s Sexiest Man Alive crown (we find out next week). Celebitchy has NPH and Chris Pratt as front-runners, and I have to say, I think Pratt is a VERY strong call. (Although NPH would be awesome.)

– This just made me giggle, on Jezebel: The New York Times Needs to Correct Its Correction About Good Burger

– Look at all these giant indie bookstores! BOOOOOOKS. (Traveller)

– Speaking of books, the New York Times has this great piece about an upcoming Christie’s Auction. To quote: On December 2, Christie’s will auction 75 first-edition books, each of which is a unique object that has been annotated with words and/or illustrations by its author. You can see them all in the NYT’s infographic. It’s really neat.
