Fug File: Well Played

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


Part one involved puppies and George and bracelets, and then we moved from New Zealand to Sydney, which involved more George, but no puppies. As you will see, both Kate and Cheeks (as they call him over at What Would Kate Do? It’s VERY APT INDEED) have changed; William has not. Just once, Wills,  I want you to pop out of the plane in a pale blue seersucker. Come on. Make an American’s day. I’ve very supportive of you. It’s really the least you could do.

Before we get back into it: I must note that one of the reasons this trip has been so fun for us is that a lot of Fug Nation hails from all over New Zealand and Australia, and getting all your reports from the road (and getting to chat with y’all on Twitter and here on GFY when I am up in the middle of the night) has been really awesome. (I told you this tour is making me soft. Don’t worry. Some asshat will wear a coffee cup bra and I’ll snap right back.)

Kate’s dress is Roksanda Ilincic, which is a pretty au courant choice; we just saw Anne Hathaway and Jessica Pare and Shailene Woodley wearing her. It’s nice to see Kate in something a little more unusual (the yellow is, of course, apt for Australia), and she was smart to wear a frock that wouldn’t blow up over her head. I do think they’re both slightly miserable without sunglasses — it’s so bright there! Not to mention the fact that everyone…well, you know.

UPDATE: I’ve added more photos since last night. IF YOU CARE.

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


Today (so far) involved puppies! William holding George! And bracelets! ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME, ROYALS? I cannot take it: THOSE ARE MY THREE FAVORITE THINGS. Anyway, it was W&K’s last day in New Zealand (which has looked so lovely; I really want to visit and I can’t wait for our fictional Fug Nation Wine Cardigan and Bracelet Retreat), and they popped over to the Royal New Zealand Police College and took a stroll through the Civic Center to meet and greet people — including, I believe, our own Fug National Lipstick Librarian, from whom I hope we get a full report! — before heading over to the airport to fly off to Sydney. Australia promises a reception at the Opera House and at LEAST one more outfit today alone, so I will be posting again about that at some point (probably quite late in Los Angeles, for our now traditional Midnight Post).

Here, Kate is wearing her Rebecca Taylor suit  — all blue suits for the royals this morning, all around! – which we first saw back in 2012. Taylor is from New Zealand, so that’s a nice farewell nod.

UPDATED: The final photo now courtesy of our own Lipstick Librarian, who had an excellent vantage point!

AS ALWAYS: Our complete coverage lives here; if it seems like you missed Day Nine, it’s because they had Day Nine off and presumably spent it sitting around eating  Twizzlers and playing with the baby.

Well Played: Myleene Klass in Dennis Basso at the Olivier Awards


I’ve always liked Myleene Klass. We did something with her years ago and she was incredibly cool, so I was always sad that her hosting opportunity in the U.S. — I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! — was on such a turd of a show.

Yeah, I’d say she rebounded from that just fine.

MTV Movie Awards Well Played: Zendaya in Ungaro


Compared to the last time we saw her, this is like….listen, I am pretty sure I heard a whole choir of angels sing as the heavens opened:

I actually think this is SO cute on her. It’s young and fresh and saucy, without being tacky or juvenile or silly. She is one of those girls who looks different in whatever she wears — her face takes makeup well, in a way where it’s kind of transformative on her — and I love that they decided to just have this dress do all the talking for her last night. It speaks well for her.

MTV Movie Awards Well Played, Amanda Seyfried


In a sense, she looks like she’s wearing a suit that someone painted with glitter confetti nail polish:

And yet somehow I mean that in a complimentary way. I guess anything really is possible.

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


Today, Wills and Kate went to Christchurch for a memorial service in honor of the victims of the devastating earthquake the region suffered in 2011 (and from which it is still recovering, from what I understand), then to open the Visitors Center, then to play some cricket, then to lunch at the Wigram Air Force Museum, where they also unveiled a memorial. This trip has had MANY an unveiling. Unlike yesterday, which brought FOUR COSTUME CHANGES and so much canoodling, today we had but one ensemble, but also people trying to whack balls with cricket bats.

With that, here are your Kate Credits: The suit is Luisa Spagnoli (which, according to What Would Kate Do, she also sported when they signed the book of condolence for Christchurch in 2011, which I have to believe was an intentional choice), the bag is her trusty Mulberry clutch and she’s also wearing her Episode heels, I THINK, which she also wears ALL THE TIME, so they must be comfy. (Do I need some?!? No, Jessica, my god. Get a grip, woman. You have got to get a grip. Also, I don’t think they’re for sale anymore. Which is good. For me. Although she has several other similar…no. I must be strong!)  As for W, William is in…A BLUE SUIT I KNOW SIT DOWN I AM STUNNED ALSO. Well, why mess with what works?

These two have tomorrow off, which means that sadly I will not be updating you in the middle of the night — I actually secretly enjoy getting to update you in the middle of the night, and not only because it means I get to chat with our readers on the other side of the world more than usual — but we’re back on the next day for MORE SHENANIGANS.
