Fug File: Well Played

Well Played, Katy Perry

Regardless of your personal feelings about Katy Perry…

Pepsi Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show Press Conference

NO ONE can say that she hasn’t fully committed to this plan to play the Superbowl Halftime Show.  Down to her accessories, even. I admire her commitment. And, in spite of myself, really want her skirt.

Well Played, Isabel Lucas in Jenny Packham

Noted Weird Headgear Enthusiast Isabel Lucas wisely decided, WHY NOT wear something really pretty to the premiere of a movie that looks super dumb that we’re all going to secretly enjoy hating when we end up watching it on USA in the middle of the night eventually?

Her face is like, “I know. What can you do? I have bills to pay, too!” but her dress is like, “please take me somewhere lovely next. I deserve the best!”

SAG Awards Alexisly Played: Joan Collins

Our recapping slates are pretty full, but we probably HAVE to try to cover The Royals in some capacity, because of how Joan Collins will be on it as the Grand Duchess Helena (how she got that title remains to be seen — by the sounds of things her daughter Elizabeth “Queen Helena” Hurley is married to the king and not the blood heir herself — or, indeed, may never be explained). I don’t know how we are going to pull it off, but if Joan Collins can still give me Dynasty-style palpitations then I probably need to see where it goes. And she CAN still do it:

She is so fabulously legendarily Joan. Just please throw a drink in someone’s face soon. Actually, throw one in MY face. IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK?

SAG Awards Well Played: Kaley Cuoco

Kaley Cuoco looks quite GOOD. Yes, okay, the hair still isn’t QUITE right — there’s something very ’80s about this phase, like she’s REALLY feeling Mary Stuart Masterson right now, and in fact, it’s possible she IS wearing Ryan Sweeting’s future on her finger — and her lips could’ve used some more color and she MIGHT need to exfoliate some of that bronzer off of her skin. But that’s a grown-up dress with a grown-up fit and a series of pretty bracelets. At this rate, come Emmy time, by Jove, I think she might get it.

SAG Awards Well Played: Tatiana Maslany in Oscar de la Renta

This is one of those dresses that, I suspect, looks better on TV than it did in still photos:

21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

BUT FIRST: We need to talk about the fact that Orphan Black is dating Downton’s Tony Gillingham, who I find nearly unrecognizable when he’s not in a tweedy three-piece trying to talk Mary into marrying him! (NO DOWNTON SPOILERS although you can read this week’s recap here!) Did anyone notice if he went onstage when they won? He MUST have done. (I was distracted by how cute Branson was when he noted that they made him sit at another table.)

And back to the dress: I mean, don’t get me wrong: it still looks pretty good. It just vaguely, down near the bottom, might be starting to give me a TINY ocular migraine. But I’ll never be mad at you, stripes! I love you, and want more people to wear you. And because this is OdlR, it fits her so nicely:

We can have a sidebar about whether this is technically gym hair, or it works, later.

SAG Awards Well Played: Viola Davis in Max Mara

I enjoy the woman standing behind Viola there, snapping a photo. And who wouldn’t? She looks fab:

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, Arrivals in LA

Great dress, great hair, great earrings, great bracelet, GREAT clutch. That woman is right to take a picture, as it WILL last longer, and she might want to refer to this more than once.
