Fug File: Well Played

Well Played, Angelina Jolie in Ralph & Russo

I know some of you won’t agree with me here, but I love this on her. I am VERY susceptible to Ralph & Russo, especially on Angelina, and as you know, I have a weakness for the ladylike, which is this in extreme. So I may be delusional. Let’s discuss.

Well Played, Amal Alamuddin Clooney

I do not understand how it is possible to look so cute when tromping through the airport:

I suppose it all starts with waking up on the morning of your flight and making the conscious choice to wear something extremely charming rather than jeans and a sweatshirt but I’d rather believe that actual answer is, like, “MAGIC.”

American Music Awards Well Played, Fergie in Halston Heritage

I believe that this is good on her by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s EVEN BETTER if you first reflect on what she used to wear. And I don’t mean in the old Peed on Herself On Stage days, I mean like two months ago when she wore this crazy thing. (I mean, but also we should reflect that THIS is a thing that happened. 2006 was a weird and in many ways amazing year.) Is it REVOLUTIONARY?

It might be, in the sense that I’m not sure she’s looked this good in maybe…ever?

American Music Awards Well Played: Selena Gomez in Armani Prive

I have never said this about Selena Gomez, before, I don’t believe, unless it was in discussion of Monte Carlo (which is underrated and charming), but she looks elegant, and I’m sort of sad she blew this look on the AMAs.

Well Played, Samira Wiley

I pretty much think Alexa Chung should have worn this instead to her Nailexa Chung launch.

It’s sleek and edgy and flattering, and in it, Samira¬†ALSO looks tall — which she isn’t particularly, as I learned when I saw her at Fashion Week — so… well, look, I don’t want to pile regrets on top of Alexa¬†Chungstocking down there. There’s nothing we can do. Let’s just rejoice and be glad that TV’s Poussey looks so vibrant and chic, and that a newbie is teaching the (comparative) old guard some tricks.

Well Played, Zendaya

She looks like the coolest girl at the sock hop:

Nickelodeon Halo Awards

That’s not a bad thing. I feel like she could teach me a few things, like how she walks with her jacket coolly propped over her shoulders like that without it falling off (the last time I tried this, it looked great and I had to stop every seven steps to put it back on my body), the secrets of getting that hem to hit at the exact right spot, and also all about her lipstick.
