NYFug.com: Grammys Superlatives


We covered some of the snazziest — and not! — looks from last night’s Grammys for The Cut:

“It’s not that we particularly like Sara Bareilles’s molting Blumarine mullet dress; we don’t. But the more egregious offense may be her gnarled braided updo, which makes her look one Jell-O shot in Cancun away from getting a really dumb tattoo someplace she can’t hide.”

Read the rest of it here! And stay tuned here at GFY for Grammys coverage all day long.

NY Fug.com: The Best, Worst, & Kookiest at the 2014 SAG Awards


Because it’s awards season, baby. Plus coverage all day today AND tomorrow, even though it’s a holiday. We do it all for you. In our sweatpants, but still. ANYWAY, including such items as:

“We’re tickled by how visibly giddy Kerry Washington has been now that she’s not hiding her pregnancy, and we understand wanting to be playful. But this custom Prada is a disaster — like she’s practicing for motherhood by wearing an extremely fancy bib and a splatter-proof drop cloth. Olivia Pope would’ve locked her in the basement.”

NY Fug.com: Best and Worst of the Golden Globes Red Carpet (Kinda)


More like, the most interesting of the red carpet. For example:

“We love how much Sandra Bullock has spun the color wheel lately, but this looks like the decor at a baby shower where nobody knows the kid’s gender yet and they’re kind of annoyed about it.”

For more sassy short-takes, check out our piece at The Cut! And if you didn’t watch the red carpet yesterday, feel free to read (or revisit) our liveblog!

NY Fug.com: The Best, Worst, & Sheerest Fashion Moments of 2013


It’s time for our annual round-up of the best and worst red carpet looks of the entire year. Including:

” Biggie and Tupac might concur with [Miley's] “PLEASE STOP” message, because surely they’re rolling in their respective graves over being resurrected on her ass, and somewhere in 1996, Gwen Stefani is real pissed someone stole her signature look.”

Check out all our picks — good, bad, ugly, and uglier — over on The Cut!

NY Fug.com: The Fug Girls Rate Long-Haired Male Movie Manes


This might be my favorite column of the year so far. Because it’s all about dudes with long-hair and how luxurious that long hair is and it also includes a joke that I have been waiting perhaps my entire writing life to make. No, I’m not going to tell you which joke that is. You just need to figure it out on your own. Anyway, the column includes bits like the following:

Michael J. Fox, Teen Wolf (1985)

Is It Necessary? Absolutely, for only with realism can we understand the struggles of the high school werewolf.

Is It Flattering? Only according to people with very specific fetishes.

Is It Luxurious? It might be soft, at least? But it also might smell like wet dog.

Overall Gloriousness: 9. This is commitment at its finest; bonus points for the fact that Michael J. Fox spent a lot of the movie in a tank top and shorts and thus also a hirsute suit.

Read all about it — and surely argue about it in the comments — over at Vulture!

NY Fug.com: The Best, Worst, and Weirdest From the 2013 CMA Awards


In addition to our exhaustive CMAs coverage here, we tackled the red carpet for The Cut, handing out superlatives like leftover Halloween candy. You want an example? You get an example:

Worst Mullet (Which Is Saying Something at the CMAs): Laura Bell Bundy. This would have been far more successful if it had just committed to being a mini-dress – or at least made an attempt to be more than a skirt with a cape. On the other hand, the awkwardly deployed high-low situation here at least distracts from the fact that she appears to be using the clear plastic loops designed to attach her dress to its hangers as spaghetti straps.

This, and so much more happened last night. Read all about it at The Cut!
