Well Played: Kate, Wills, and George’s Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand, Day Eighteen, Part I


The penultimate day! Tomorrow (today? Yesterday? I don’t even know what my name is right now) these two will make a couple more final appearances and then climb on the plane and head back to London where surely many a nap will be taken and many a yoga pant will be worn in secret. But today was very jam-packed: they planted trees with extremely cute twins, and gamboled in pods of some sort of playground ilk; then went to a reception, where they listened to/gave a speech respectively (the content of which, I believe, was basically, “thanks for having us! You are all DELIGHTFUL and our baby is awesome. See you soon!”) and pressed the flesh. Later tonight, they’re going to a party of some sort, so hold your breath for shit to get glamorous up in here — that event will get its own post, very possibly tomorrow morning, in part because it’s possible I might fall asleep before it happens, but also because…well, gowns.

Outfits? I can tell you: Kate wore a Catherine Walker coatdress, her second Catherine Walker of the tour, and Twitter reported that she told someone it was sweltering — I can believe it. I presume it’s in green for Australia, and mostly I keep thinking that I wish the person who helps her figure out what to wear and why would have a blog to explain to all of us, later, what the inspiration was behind each look,  because they’re thoughtful and I’m nosy. I like it very well, but, you guys, these shoes shall be the death of me. They must be extremely comfortable.  (I did, parenthetically, read that sometimes people get Botox in the balls of their feet to make wearing heels less painful and I swear if I were her I would do it. Botox in my pits to prevent sweat, Botox in my feet so I could stand. Just pump me full of botulism toxin, y’all.)

As for William, he actually changed when Kate did not. I know, right?

Fugs and Fines: Midriffs at the Elle Women In Music Party


Well, it’s not a TON of midriffs. But they’re there. Winking at us. Wanting us to talk about our feelings. Let’s oblige.

Mostly Well Played, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield


“I’m going to set Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield,” I told Heather. “AKA, the celebrity Will and Kate.” Which I meant only in the sense that they’re very cute together and also that Fug Nation really enjoys them as a pair and likes talking about them. But then I saw that they’re PLANTING TREES on a school visit, and the analogy became yet more apt. ANYWAY. News you can use: her dress is very cute, but her shoes are terrible even for grubby outdoors-y chores (wear Converse like your boyfriend, Emma!) and Andrew has shaved his head. DISCUSS.

Well Played: Kate, Wills, and George’s Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand, Day Sixteen


And we’ve got Kate in McQueen again. (Interestingly, this sort of reminds me of the Emilia Wickstead dress she wore, ages ago, that she revived this week in teal.)  This is not the first time she’s worn McQueen in this pale pink shade; you may remember her pink McQueen coat from The Queen’s Birthday in 2013, when Harry tried to high-five her. On Twitter, Fug National Lesliepedia noted that the cut of the vee on this bodice was  similar to that on her McQueen wedding dress, and I like that idea; it’s nice to see her in a different neckline than the usual. (PS: their wedding anniversary is Tuesday and we will be bringing you a wedding retrospective so you can ease your way out of daily royals shenanigans with maximum gown-age.)

Parenthetically, I know there is a faction of people who love these Sledge shoes on her, but I have to say that while I actually really like the shape of them — in a deeply classic, agonizingly appropriate kind of way — I also think they are a ZzzzzZZZZzzzzzz in this color. I don’t expect her to Go Cray and wear, like, polka dotted heels (although that would be cute), but the color of this dress is delicate enough that she could do something Never Nude. Even the charcoal gray ones she wore with the uplinked Wickstead! Free yourself from the tyranny of the nude shoe, Kate!

At any rate, this day looked fun: they hung out with kids and watched skateboarders and got to DJ and unveiled a plaza named after George, then flew home to hang out with Cheeksy McSqueezeable himself. (William must have a ton of streets and plazas named after himself. I hope sometimes he can name drop them: “Drive allllll the way down to where the road dead-ends in ME STREET and then hang a left. Don’t be late, Kate’s bringing a souffle.”)

Recent Fugs: Rita Ora


I still can’t hum a single one of her songs, but I know her hideous wardrobe from the last two years like the back of my own hand.

Fabs and Fines: Kate Upton, Leslie Mann, and Cameron Diaz at the The Other Women Premiere


The truth of the matter is, the three of them kind of turned it out last night.
