Fug File: Fugs

Fug or Fab: Aubrey Plaza in Valentino

SOMEONE has worn this before and I cannot put my finger on who — I would have bet Emma Stone, but I don’t think that’s actually true. Maybe I’m losing my mind. Maybe I just DREAMED that someone wore it. I kinda like it. It’s sassy. It’s like what you’d see on your jazzy old aunt who collects strange pieces of bone that might actually belong to the lovers that she’s killed, but you feel like…look, she probably had her reasons.

Fug or Fab: Katie Holmes in Zac Posen

The new tradition around these parts is to first admire Miss Holmes’s face, I think:

From this angle, this entire thing is very balletic — remember when Katie Holmes was pretending she was A Great Dancer? Not that she’s a abjectly BAD dancer, but from what I can recall, she was basically like That Girl In Your High School Who Dances Competently But She Basically Landed That Part In The Musical Thanks To Charm So Don’t Worry About Saving Her A Spot, ABT. (That link goes to a YouTube video of her “Get Happy” performance on So You Think You Can Dance and I think she suffered from comparison with actual dancer dancers; that said, it’s a GREAT reminder of how good that bob haircut was on her). Apparently, the memo for The Giver premiere-goers was, “wear pink!”

Let’s see the whole thing:

R.I.P., Robin Williams

It just felt weird to kick off today like yesterday wasn’t a brutally sad loss. Robin Williams was somehow eternal to me;  he was a force that always was and simply always would be, even if he wasn’t in front of me. Maybe in a way that will hold true. There’s such agony in the fact that a person’s delivery of joy to everyone else can be so inversely proportionate to what they find in themselves. I hope that through whatever murk haunted him, he did have days where he saw in the moment how much people basked in his glow — that he, figuratively and literally, was able to turn his face just a bit to the right.

Vulture compiled some wonderful clips of Robin Williams’ memorable moments, including his Oscars acceptance speech and a Mork and Mindy blooper reel. They did not have a clip of the end of Dead Poets Society, which I will link to here as my conclusion. I hope nobody yanks it today (several have already disappeared), because it’s a fitting goodbye. O Captain, my Captain, indeed.

Casual Fuggerday: Ali Larter

We’re seeing a LOT of this Christian Siriano line on people lately:

I suggested putting this on a Fanning for a photocall, but that’s pretty close to Ali Larter on GMA, right? They’re both blonde and…cameras are involved. Regardless, it’s nice to see that it’s as cute in the wild as it was in an controlled environment.

Well Played: Elisabeth Moss

This feels like summer to me — it’s breezy, it’s glowy, it’s lovely.

Elisabeth Moss

It also makes me wish she were in a dance movie — like, Ewan McGregor and Taye Diggs need to sweep her off her feet in a little pas de trois, choreographed by Cooper Nielsen, while Peter Gallagher’s eyebrows try to strike her down with the merest wiggle. And, just to cross references, someone could put her in a corner real fast too. Anything.

Your Afternoon Man: Ryan Kwanten

I don’t know. Something just told me that you True Blood viewers might want to see Ryan Kwanten frolicking shirtless in the surf:

I cannot pretend this has ANYTHING to do with clothing — um, congrats on your classic swim trunks? — but never let it be said I wasn’t looking out for your interests.
