Fug File: Unfug It Up

Unfug It Up: Leighton Meester in Emporio Armani

Welcome back, Blair Waldorf. Stay awhile this time, will you? With both you AND S off the canvas (whither Boobs Legsly I ASK THEE)(just kidding, she’s finally shooting a movie)(but damn, that took a long time) there has been a void of crazy fuggery others have been filling with way too much stretchy nakedness.

At least this isn’t see-through. It is a cheap shift that ate some curtains and is currently regurgitating them, but it is a CHANGE, and I am so HAPPY to have something else about which to gnash my teeth. (She’s even wearing a BRACELET, although the shoes are a totally boring color choice here and so that’s probably a styling wash.) I mean, I actually like that bottom fabric, potentially, but why does it look like it’s been sewn into the other thing with dental floss? How would you ladies fix this? Would you even bother? PLEASE, talk it up, and rejoice and be glad that one of the options doesn’t have to be, “Line it.”

Unfug It Up: Anna Camp

This is SO CLOSE to being cute. So tantalizingly close.

Her head looks awesome. Her shoes are fabulous. And the crisp idea of the dress really works on her, but boy, is the execution weird. If only the boob patches joined up with the skirt, they’d look less like she’s in bandages. If only the underskirt didn’t look so much like an apron on a carhop. If only she were wearing a bracelet, and had a clutch that didn’t seem like it was originally planned for another outfit.

The waffled bit IS pretty, but I think that’s way too much of it down there on her thighs, and it’s used weirdly everywhere else… I just feel like there has to be a way to design this dress so that it still feels springy and cool and cute, and doesn’t evoke a waitress at a diner, and I suspect Fug Nation is just the bunch to fix it. To make it pitch perfect, as it were. O SNAP. When you have nothing witty left in the tank on a Friday afternoon, it’s a cherished GFY staple to go for the hackiest joke in the arsenal. I knew you’d be expecting it and I didn’t want to let you down; ergo I can call it SELFLESS triteitude. (Because, another GFY staple: nonsense words. IS IT BEER O’CLOCK YET?)

Unfug It Up: Chloe Grace Moretz in Carven

I keep thinking that thing around her neck is a dandruff catcher.

Not that such a thing really exists, although it could; it just strikes me as having been draped across her shoulders for the purpose of protecting her shoulders from debris, be it from makeup or the heartbreaking pain of dry scalp. I keep waiting for someone to sneak in there and remove it so that we can see what the real top of the dress looks like. At first I thought it was fairly lively; then I wondered if it was worth a conversation about whether the sleeves and the frock itself needed to be in more harmony, and now that I’m staring at it, something about the waist is making her boxy and the entire THING gives off the vibe that she’s slouching even though I don’t believe that is true. Posture is hard enough without the clothes actively working AGAINST you.

I also want to burn the shoes, but I say that about 70 percent of celebrities these days. You could write that complaint in your sleep.

Unfug or Fab: Emma Stone in Christian Dior

She certainly seems happy:

And I’m largely in favor of the dress — I love that the skirt is lined, for one thing, and the color and length work nicely on her. What I’m wondering is whether the matching shoes are too much, and whether I wish any portion of the top were also lined. Note: No cats expired in the making of those curiosities. What do you think, Fug Nation? Personally, I’m in the Old Lady Zone of just being grateful she looks professional and lovely and fun, without feeling the need to involve her erogenous zones.

Elle Style Awards Unfug or Fab: Katy Perry

This is Vivienne Westwood, whose gown I think did not fail Katy as much as her wig wrangler did (and if it’s not a wig, then… please fire your hair person, Katy, because it LOOKS like one, and a bad one at that). But let’s discuss.

How's this working for you?

Unfug It Up: Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld looks like she is seriously rethinking this on the fly:

I suspect she’s also thinking, “I can’t believe I agreed to going bare-legged today. What’s WRONG with me? PLEASE LET ME GO INSIDE.” That being said, I feel like this whole look is a wee depressing for her, and might need some color. Or some sparkle. Or some texture. Or something that doesn’t make me feel like I’ve never been colder a day in my life. What do you think? Please weigh in!
