Ten-Year Fugtrospective: The 2006 VMAs


In preparation for this year’s VMAs, which are this Sunday, we all step into the WayBack Machine to revisit its red carpet, ten years ago. And, you guys, the 2006 VMAs were NOT well attended. I was looking at our coverage and thought, “maybe Heather and I were just REALLY HUNGOVER this week and didn’t feel like writing about this?” — we were much younger then; it was wholly possible — but I actually think it was not a celeb hot ticket that year for some reason. Red carpet attendees including everyone from The Hills (which is peak 2006), including Brent Bolthouse, and also, like, Rocco DiSpirito? Which is not to say that some of these flashbacks will not thrill and delight you, because THEY WILL. Oh, they WILL.

Fug the Shoes: Christina Milian


Jess and I and our friends used to joke that any pair of truly devious stilettos were called Kill-A-Man shoes, because that’s what you could do with them.

Christina Milian

For these, I would amend it to Neuter-A-Man.

(Please note that the cropped camisole and see-through skirt aren’t great EITHER, but what more can I say about either of those things? Pizza BOO, AND WEAR REAL SHIRTS. THE END. Not very eloquent.)

Royally Played, Wills and Kate (in LK Bennett)


Kate wore LK Bennett yesterday, too. Everyone over there must just be delighted by the twofer. (For what it’s worth, although this particular dress is sold out, none of this is helping me keep my vow to stop buying perfect day dresses. Damn you, Kate. Covering you is bad for my budget.) For those of you tracking Wills’s every sartorial move, yes, these are his usual khakis — the ones I privately call “the trousers that tell me more about The Royal Junk than anticipated.” Let’s start with the snap from KP’s Insta, with a helpful Informative Caption….

…and as ever, you can see more in the slideshow. SO MUCH MORE!

Casual Fugs: Gigi and Bella Hadid


I referred to them mentally as the Hadon’t sisters and then chastised myself for it. I cannot resist a good pun, but what’s even MORE tempting is a bad one.

Fugtrospective: Blake Lively


It’s Blake Lively’s birthday! What better time to revisit some of the most interesting sartorial works of the artist formerly known as Boobs Legsly? Spoiler: Her head basically always looks amazing.

Fug or Fab: Heidi Klum


You guys. I just flashed onto a vision of what Heidi Klum is going to be like as an old lady. I suspect giant bows and huge huge earrings are involved:

"America's Got Talent" Season 11 Live Show - Arrivals

Is it wrong if I confess that I’m kind of excited for this? It’s going to be fun.
