Fug File: Unfug It Up

Unfug It Up: Miranda Kerr


I weirdly kind of like this, but I keep staring at the top and thinking that it just looks like a Hanes t-shirt with grand aspirations:

In fact, I feel like this whole look aimed for Timeless Simplicity and landed in Kinda Half-Assed. The good news is, I think that with a little bit of work, we can wholly-ass it. I’d start with…well, a drink. And then maybe a some color. A jacket? Different shoes? You make the call.

SAG Awards Unfug It Up: Amanda Peet


This is nowhere NEAR her worst, but it does look like a feverish fabric store dare.

Why are there seventeen different things happening here? It looks like a rented costume for a high-school play that someone tried to adapt, but couldn’t find any matching patterns. Can anything be done? Do we ditch the sleeves first, or are they worth keeping if we figure out a different bodice? Is the fabric on the front of the skirt acceptable, or is the one on the top better? Can you even form a coherent thought about this? Is there a hero out there whose can translate the bizarre native garb of Planet Samples? Please step forward, friend.

SAG Awards Unfug It Up: Edie Falco


The good news is, I like this way more than the wine bag she wore to the Globes:

The bad news is, I feel like it still kind of looks like she dug it out of the sale rack at Chico’s, and I am not nearly as into Chico’s as Drake is. And yet, I think this is fixable….somehow. What would you do? Fix the hem? Make it into a top, worn with a simpler skirt? BURN IT WITH FIRE? Wait, that last one is too easy.

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Unfug It up: Jessica Chastain


I WANT to like this. But I want to like a lot of things: whatever I’m cooking up for dinner in the slow-cooker, the next few episodes of Revenge, what my hair is doing right now. We don’t always get what we want:

I mean, the color is good….? I think my issue is that I don’t understand what it is about this dress that is just leaving me cold. I just stared at it for ten minutes and then announced to the empty room, “This dress makes her head look small.” Which makes me wonder, is it her HAIR that we need to be blaming? Would this be better if she did this hair with it? Does she maybe just need a belt and some sunglasses? Should she go up half a size? Should she start over? Or am I just totally off my rocker, as usual?

Golden Globes Unfug It Up: Jennifer Lawrence


This isn’t the worst Dior of the lot, by any means, but that doesn’t mean I have to love it.

It just looks a bit like she’s wearing a carpet that only got part-way untied and unrolled. I want to snip out the second black piece and then see what we’ve got — something simple, sure, but at least it would be more flattering. The hair still isn’t flattering to her face shape, either, and I think her makeup may have been TOO heavy-handed, but let’s stay on topic: When talking to Seacrest, Jennifer noted that she was wearing Dior, with a quick quip about what a huge shocker that would be to everyone. Methinks she’s getting bored of it and when they uncage this beast — whenever the hell that happens (she was announced as the Miss Dior face in October 2012) — I think we’re in for a serious fashion binge, like going off gluten for a week and then being put in a room full of delicious, delicious sandwiches. She will CONSUME IT ALL, side effects be damned.

People’s Choice Unfug It Up: Lucy Hale


I don’t even know if we’re removing fug, so much as trying to create more fab.

I can’t decide how I feel about the pattern, exactly, but I so appreciate that she wore one that I’m basically happy with it. But somehow the sleeve, though helpful for warmth, pushes it into Way Too Much territory for me. So I’d maybe kill that sucker and then replace the shoes that scream I GIVE UP with something more fun — like, how about a gray, even, or a gray-blue that plays off the subtler colors in the dress? Kat Dennings wore some kind of grey pump in one of her outfits, I think, so they’re certainly out there. Just SOMETHING to lighten up the mood down there. And since she’s petite, I almost might bring this above the knee. I don’t know. Help me, Fug Nation. Or do I not need help, because it should stay as-is? Do I need help for other reasons? I’m so tired. What day is it?
