Fug File: Fugs

Fug or Fab: Keira Knightley in Simone Rocha


I really like this, but it might just be my holiday spirit talking. There’s basically NO OTHER TIME you can wear a white-fur-trimmed dress and get away with it.

Royally Played: Wills and Kate Visit New York, Day One


And we’re off! This is going to be so bad for my Coats Budget. Which is $0. Because I already own too many coats for a person who lives in Los Angeles. (This first one on Kate is a custom number from Seraphine, per our friends at What Kate Wore. It is cozy, and it is purple. William’s obviously wearing his customary cat sweater and leather maxi-skirt combo, which is no surprise to royals watchers.)

*Now updated with her cocktail wear. Twitter told me we weren’t getting getting any photos!

Recent Fugs and Fabs: Lady Gaga


 

Is it wrong if I sort of love that she’s dressing like she’s fallen out of an 80s mini-series now?

Fugs and Pieces, December 5, 2014


So many Best Books and Gift Guides! (Speaking of, the Fug Nation gift guide went up this week, and you should check it out, if you haven’t!)

– Best of both worlds! The Los Angeles Times book gift guide is awesome and also REALLY PRETTY.

– I’m just going to share the title of this Collectors Weekly piece: Royalty, Espionage, and Erotica: Secrets of the World’s Tiniest Photographs

– This is also fascinating and well-worth your time, from the New York Times: My Great-Great-Aunt Discovered Francium. And It Killed Her.

– And also in the department of Great Headlines that Say It All, from Grantland: The Weight of Guilt. Death, disgrace, and a handful of knockers: inside the secret world of competitive bass fishing cheaters.

– Check out Slate’s piece on the best Overlooked Books of 2014.

– And Book Page’s best books of the year.

And Huff-Po’s!

– I hope you like books! Because here’s another round-up, and it’s a biggie. The New York Times‘s 100 Notable Books of the Year.

Entertainment Weekly ran down the most awkward sponsored challenges of Project Runway.

Elle’s advent calendar is just HOT DUDES.

– Ooh, look at all these pretty vintage engagement rings! (Retroette)

These photos of America’s malls in 1989 will take you back to junior high, if you’re my age. I can smell the Sbaro’s. (Mashable)

– Here are some Benedict Cumberbatch cupcakes! (People)

– Speaking of enjoyable headlines: Meryl Streep had to use her neighbor Gwyneth Paltrow’s oven on Thanksgiving. You can use my oven any time, Meryl. Not a euphemism. (Celebitchy)

– Miley is really going all out at Art Basel. Those pasties are gonna be a bitch to remove. (Lainey)

– You surely want to see the teaser of Clooney on Downton (Vanity Fair)

– Try the Hipster Business Name Generator! I’m Butter & Capes, which is apt because I love butter AND capes.

Pajiba tells you what the very WORST Christmas movies on Netflix currently are. One of them stars Daniel Baldwin.

Royals Round-Up, December 5, 2014


Are you ready for some coats? For some Legos? For a tiara, and a fur turban? (Not at the same time.) I am here for you.

No other royals coverage on GFY this week BUT Wills and Kate arrive in New York on Sunday night and we will be ON IT, so next week should be fun.

Well Played, Lily Collins in Maticevski


I love everything about this (except maybe the shoes but in this time of holiday joy when we’re supposed to be forgiving and kind, I shall ignore that):

Lily Collins walks 'Love, Rosie' Red Carpet in Tokyo

The color, the pockets, the fit, the fact that it makes me want an Aperol spritz even though it’s 100% too early to be drinking, all of it.
