Fug File: Fugs

Teen Choice Awards Fugs and Fabs: Black and White


Loads of people went for basic black, white, or — my personal preference — the two together.  Let’s read them all over. (Now that fewer people get the newspaper, can corny Dads even tell that joke?) PS: If you’re looking for Zendaya, she got her very own post, of course.

Teen Choice Awards: The Pretty Little Liars


First of all, Getty Images told me that Burgundy Suit over there is Ian Harding (Ezra), but that’s  Tyler Blackburn…isn’t it? IS IT? Is this a new “Who Is A?” like mystery? You’re welcome, Pretty Little Liars, I just answered the question, “what are we doing next season?”. You’re figuring out which short-haired brunet dude is who:

No, wait, never mind. You’re going to have to break that story yourself. I was right. THANK GOD. I was fairly confident about this because (a) I actually really love Tyler Blackburn and quit Pretty Little Liars when they wrote him off, and then forgot to come back with him, and because (b) I see this photo every time Heather texts me:

That is Ian Harding, on the pre-show prior to this past week’s season finale, shoving a cupcake into his mouth before they went to commercial, and it is divine. Speaking of divine,  let’s discuss the assorted Liars, all of whom look pretty good to my mind, even if Ashley Benson (who, for what it’s worth, I love) insists on wearing what looks like the strapless version of this dress that recently made me cry. Vanessa Ray, kicking things off in the black dress, looks flirty and cute; Lucy Hale looks flat-out great in that blue; Janel Parrish looks vaguely like her dress might be choking her which is at least thematically appropriate given the character she plays; Shay Mitchell is a tall, gorgeous drink of water, and then Ash Benzo is trying to slowly kill me, and Tyler Blackburn is snazzily representing for all the dudes. So they’re four for six, which would be a great night if they all coalesced into the body of a baseball player somehow. And somewhere, everyone else shoves another cupcake in.

Teen Choice Awards Fug or Fab: Rita Ora in Max Mara


I weirdly kind of like this.

Teen Choice Awards 2015 - Arrivals

I think it’s because I’ve just created an alter-ego for Rita Ora in my imagination, where she is a bad-ass business lady who marches into the office and gives everyone totally brilliant orders, right off the cuff, and doesn’t take anyone’s shit, and the Xerox always works for all, and her underlings say things to each other like, “I love her and I think she’s so smart but is it sort of weird how she’s really REALLY into being so coordinated all the time? Oh, shit, here she comes. Hand me the TPS reports!”

But if her suit is Brightly Coordinated Business, her shoes at least are ready for a party:

I am on record as being sort of Platformed-Out, but….these might be an exception.  I am a magpie. THERE IS GOLD INVOLVED.

Teen Choice Awards Fugs and Fabs: The Cast of Screen Queens


This photo of the three of them just makes me laugh. It SO looks like Rachel Berry popping up to the front of the stage to speak for everyone, whether they want her to or not.

Teen Choice Awards Letter of Teen Choice Truth


Hey y’all!

GettyImages-484268136

The good news is, I just got an email from Mattel and they’re going to use these pictures to design their new Britney Barbie and it’s AWESOME because now I don’t have to put my shoes on and go into their offices.

Hope your summer is going great. Stay sweet!

Love, BRITNEY

Teen Choice Awards Well Played: Nina Dobrev in Zuhair Murad


In the Mae Whitman post earlier this morning, I mentioned the Teen Choice Awards Traditional Sparkly Dress, because I thought her look was such a smart interpretation of what actresses so often wear to this particular event. If Mae’s look was Sparkly Dress Rebooted, then Nina is wearing a Sparkly Dress Classic:

Much as I enjoy both ice cream and froyo, I like them both. I’d argue, actually, that this dress is basically the Platonic ideal of what you wear to Teen Choice Awards when you are a 26 year old woman who was once, but is no longer, the star of a vampire soap on The CW, but who still has to attend an event celebrating it. (She and  Somerhalder won Choice TV Liplock, and she won her individual award as well, for Choice Teen Actress Show About Vampires [paraphrased].) Might as well go out with a bang, right? Now, let’s get her a great new gig; I don’t like a TV landscape without Nina Dobrev elegantly crying somewhere on it.
