Fug File: Well Played

Well Played, Lena Dunham

Between this, and Keira Knightley yesterday, it appears that Pilgrim Shoes are BACK! I guess they ARE close to being seasonally thematic? I cannot wait until we’re all wearing bonnets and calling each other “Goody.” But while I was neutral at best on Keira’s, I think these are sassy and fun (due to the gold. I would like anything that is spray-painted gold. Seriously. Try me):

I also basically love this dress. This is a very cute look for Lena — the kicky Mod thing really suits her, and it totally goes with the font on her book. Yes, I am a person who just thought, “Ooh, her dress coordinates with that font,” and I will not apologize for it.

Well Played: Camilla Belle in Carolina Herrera at the amfAR Inspiration LA Gala

I am totally in love with this gown.

I love the color. I love that, even though I’m NEVER a fan of clear plastic accessories, she used the transparent belt to give just the merest depth of shading to the gown at her waist; very clever. I love the earrings, the lipstick, the delicate bracelet, the clutch. I’m still confused how Camilla Belle manages to pull major dresses for major events when I can’t even name anything she’s been in besides 10,000 B.C. and A Relationship With Joe Jonas. But maybe big roles and big fashion work like the field of dreams, and if she wears it, they will come.

Mostly Well Played, Jessica Chastain in Saint Laurent

I mean, I have SOME notes? But they’re minor. All this, plus an UPDATE on the last dress in which we saw her (short version: at least they weren’t lace tights).

Well Played: Padma Lakshmi in Naeem Khan

Padma is someone who, it feels like, almost always just throws on the dress and hopes that’s enough work for one day.

Fortunately for her, this dress is competent in the extreme. It’s just so cool. I swooned for it on the runway, and if I loved it any more, it would be adultery.

Well Played, Taylor Swift

I am actually listening to her new album as I write this (it’s good, if you like her stuff, which I generally do. I certainly spent a lot of time listening to Red and typing furiously last year. [You should also listen to Kelly Clarkson cover "Shake It Off," while I've got you here.]). I always appreciate how Taylor has a lot of FEELINGS.  And a lot of outfits. Let’s look at the newest.

Well Played, Carrie Underwood in Temperley London

Uh oh, Blake and Kate.

Someone wants in on the Posh Pregnancy Stakes. She’s fighting Blake on the hair front, nosing in on one of Duchess Catherine’s favorite designers, and bringing out enviable shoes to wrap up her first entry. Fraulein Maria came to play, y’all. Strap in and enjoy the battle.
