Fug File: Well Played

Well Played, Judy Greer

I don’t know when it happened, but Judy Greer has totally turned into a dish:

Not like she was a hideous troll-beast ever — who can forget her seductive turn on Arrested Development, for example? — but she’s just looked really good lately. Including on that commercial where she and her Hamster-Husband leave her Brother and Gor-Don at home to go get tacos. And while I cannot deal with the fact that I’ve had MULTIPLE CONVERSATIONS with people that sincerely included the sentence, “is Judy Greer married to the Hamster, or is the Hamster her dad?”, the dress she’s wearing in that ad is really cute. AS IS THIS ONE. It takes a lot of woman to pull off a print that’s basically a Rorschach test (I see things in that fabric that would curl your therapist’s hair), but apparently she is that woman.

Well Played, The Cast of Outlander: Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe and Tobias Menzies

Is this basically an excuse to talk about the fact that they’ve made a TV series of Outlander? MAYBE. But the truth is that these three look pretty great:

Her shoes are a snooze-y choice in this particular case, but that dress is sincerely lovely on her and the men look dashing and well-suited if EXTREMELY match-y, rather like Dude Bookends — on the left is the dude playing Jamie, if you’ve read the books, and the right is the dude playing your protagonist’s spouse (whose character I barely recall, but I also read those books like ten years ago and I don’t remember what I had for lunch yesterday [I'm totally lying: it was a turkey wrap with avocado and chipotle mustard]). I would have forced everyone to wear a kilt — I do remember the books being KILT-Y — but if we’ve learned anything over the years, it’s that no one listens to me.

Well Played: Vera Farmiga in Peter Pilotto

Maybe I only like this because it’s better than the similar one Gwendoline Christie wore to Comic-Con.

Or maybe I like it because it’s also empirically better: more fun, more shape, more sass. The lipstick is a dream, and although the light pink shoes are an unusual choice– Rose Leslie’s blue heels might’ve gone down nicely — I actually think they tie in well and give it a bit of lightness. Gwendoline styled hers fine, too — everything clicks together — but it’s like the Luncheon version, and this is the Vixen one, and given the choice… look, I like lunch, a LOT, but I’d rather LOOK like a saucepot.

Well Played, Tom Mison

I mean, you probably want to see this.

It’s things we love. It’s a) Tom Mison, b) in glasses, c) looking casually dashing, d) doing a tango, e) with John Noble, who f) has on a nice jacket himself. That’s a long way through the alphabet for just one photo.

Well Played: Angela Bassett

Dear Angela Bassett:

Teach me how.

Well Played: Zoe Saldana in Valentino

I think this is one of those dresses that can be twee and irritating on the wrong woman, but totally charming and fabulous under the right circumstances and “subtly quasi-concealing a pregnancy” is very possibly one of those circumstances.
