Fug File: Fugs

Royally Played: The Prince George Christmas Photos

Pretty sure I made the right call to break into your holiday shopping weekend to bring you Prince Squashy McCheeks, in what I assume is Wills and Kate’s holiday present to us all. (What I really wanted was for Harry to regrow his Holiday Beard and come over and help me with my tree, but this is just so cute that I can’t get mad.)

Fugs and Pieces, December 12, 2014

Congrats on getting to the end of another week, everyone! How’s your holiday shopping coming along?

– We put together an EXTENSIVE list of our best and worst red carpet moments for The Cut this week, and you should read it. There’s A LOT of Lupita.

Vogue confirms that Keira Knightley is pregnant, to which all of Fug Nation says, “WE KNOW.”

– Also at The Cut: I Tried to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Here’s What Happened.

– Speaking of dating, I wish I’d thought of this: I Talked to People on Tinder About ‘Serial’ and This is What Happened. (Bustle)

– This is one of my favorite pieces of writing every year: The 2014 Hater’s Guide To The Williams-Sonoma Catalog (The Concourse)

The New York Times asked staffers to name the best book they read this year. What was the best book you read this year? (Mine was probably Life After Life, which I realize came out last year. We were so crazed with The Royal We this year that I read like 5% of my usual number of books. I am making up for it in December, you guys! I read three books last week! Books are back on!)

– Speaking of books, Cosmo has a list of books they think every twenty-something woman should read. And it’s quite a good list — Joan Didion! A Tree Grows in Brooklyn! Roxane Gay!

– This is seriously super interesting, on Eater: Myth Busts: The Enduring Legacy of Breast-Shaped Glassware.

– On topic, Good. Food. Stories brings you the Christmas Island cocktail!

– This is also fun and festive, from All Things Georgian: A Miscellany of Christmas Pies, Puddings and Cakes

– I feel like many of you will relate to this essay from the Los Angeles Review of Books: The Christmas Movie: A Hate/Need Relationship

Tatler asks you to vote on Britain’s Best Beard.

– Marrying the topic of beards AND Christmas, People StyleWatch brings you BEARD BAUBLES. PLEASE go look at this thing. Just do it.

– From Pajiba: They almost did a Muppets version of Into The Woods?!? This cannot be real.

– You probs want to see an adorable dog posing by a series of winter hats, right? (The Fashion Spot)

Kiki Dunst and Landry are going to be in season two of Fargo? I hope Landry doesn’t kill anyone again. (Lainey)

– Celebitchy runs down the Golden Globes TV snubs.



Royals Round-Up, December 12, 2014

WELL. This week was VERY BUSY.  Aside from Wills and Kate dashing all over Manhattan for two and a half days, Princess Charlene had her twins, and all of Sweden came out with MAJOR MAJOR jewels and gowns for this little thingie they’re calling the “Nobel Prize.”

Here at GFY, we had loads of Wills & Kate. LOADS OF THEM. For example:

Fug Widow: Rita Ora at the Philly Jingle Ball

Rita’s head is the good news.

Also, her dress has a built-in flotation aid, in case of flooding. However, the bad news — there is always bad news — is that the view doesn’t get any better from another angle.

WTF: Alessandra Ambrosio

I keep accidentally publishing posts with “words” as actual placeholders this week, but don’t worry. This time when I say WORDS, I mean it in the pure GFY slang sense: I am totally out of them and this is crazy.
