Fugs and Fabs: The Rest of the Creative Arts Emmys

I already covered Julianne Hough from this event, and sat down to break out more posts — and then looked at the calendar and realized that Standard Issue Emmys are Sunday, and we’ve got LOADS of things from the Toronto Film Festival and Fashion Week to cover and we better get this done.

Creative Arts Emmys Fug Carpet: Julianne Hough in Zuhair Murad

Don’t worry.

The 2016 Creative Arts Emmy Awards - Day 2 in LA

While a variety of celebrities are in Toronto for the film festival, or coming back from the festival in Venice, or maybe getting some PR at Fashion Week, Julianne Hough is bravely holding down the fort in LA, reminding us all that the trend in which otherwise genetically blessed humans choose to drape themselves in a disintegrating wedding gowns will never die.

Well Played: The American Pastoral Cast at the Toronto Film Festival

This is one really good-looking cast. And whoever is responsible for styling them for TIFF is making the most of everyone’s genetic blessings. They look, to an actor, fab.


Fugs and Fabs: Shailene Woodley at the Toronto Film Festival

Shailene Woodley is in Toronto promoting Snowden and telling people that she’s not sure she’s doing the next Divergent movie now that it’s going to be on TV (no matter what her IMDb page says) and wearing interesting things, thank god.

Well Played, Lupita Nyong’o in House of Herrera

Lupita is in Toronto promoting Queen of Katwe, which is getting good reviews and apparently got a standing ovation at TIFF (its trailer also totally made me well up). Frankly, I would like to give a standing ovation to this whole look.

She just looks totally fantastic here; as far as I am concerned, this might be one of my favorite looks of the year.

GFY Giveaway: I’m Judging You by Luvvie Ajayi

SO excited to be giving away I’m Judging You. If you don’t read Luvvie Ajayi’s website, Awesomely Luvvie, you definitely need to start — she’s hilarious and smart, and her new book is fantastic and will be right up your street (which should be obvious from the title, right?).


THE PRIZE: We’ve got five copies of I’m Judging You, of which I was lucky enough to get to read an advance copy, and which you will definitely enjoy. Per the book itself:

With over 500,000 readers a month at her enormously popular blog, AwesomelyLuvvie.com, Luvvie Ajayi is a go-to source for smart takes on pop culture. I’m Judging You is her debut book of humorous essays that dissects our cultural obsessions and calls out bad behavior in our increasingly digital, connected lives―from the importance of the newest Shonda Rhimes television drama to serious discussions of race and media representation to what to do about your fool cousin sharing casket pictures from Grandma’s wake on Facebook.

With a lighthearted, razor sharp wit and a unique perspective, I’m Judging You is the handbook the world needs, doling out the hard truths and a road map for bringing some “act right” into our lives, social media, and popular culture. It is the Do-Better Manual.

THE TASK: I am going to pick the winners at random, but to keep it fun, please tell us what in your own life you are currently trying to Do Better. (I personally trying to put down my damn phone and live in the actual world more often. It is HARD.)

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Friday.  FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you. (Prizing courtesy of the publisher; open to residents of the US only. Thank you!)


High Fugshion: Christian Siriano Spring/Summer 2017

The front row for this show was a good one — from Christina Hendricks to Pamela Anderson (who felt very apropos given that Heather has been watching a lot of Baywatch lately) — and also featured several plus-size models, presented without fanfare, which was neat. How great it would be if every designer showed women of various shapes and sizes in their clothing. Let’s look at the clothes!
