Fug File: Well Played

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.

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

There was a plethora of activities on the Wills And Kate New Zealand Tour of Many Delights And Wardrobe Changes today: Church! Children’s Tag Rugby! Wine-tasting! Getting on and off planes! White-water rafting of a sort! All of this AND loads of speculation because William made an off-hand comment that could have been interpreted as implying they were going to have another baby soon. I told you they loved New Zealand.  (I seriously just think he said that because they are all loved up right now, as you will soon see in this slideshow, if he even said it as reported. Even the Daily Mail doesn’t think she’s pregnant right this second — she did taste some wine, and got on this crazy white-water rafty thing, and as we’ve been yapping here for months, it seems highly unlikely she’s get pregnant before a trip as exhausting and wine-taste-y and raft-y as this one. But Twitter was atwitter, which is always fun. We love speculation! Also royal babies.)

Anyhoooooodle, they kicked the day off going to Palm Sunday services, then coached kids tag rugby, where William’s team won — avenging his brutal yacht loss, presumably — and then they jetted off to drink wine and white-water-raft (kind of, it was like a….Speedboat Extreme and it looked both totally fun and somewhat ridiculous, and holy god Queenstown is SO PRETTY, I want to go to there). There were a variety of wardrobe changes, and also sunglasses and hats and gowns and jeans and life-jackets and an excess of gazing at one another, so strap in because this thing has, like, everything you like.

Finally, as always, you can find complete coverage of the tour here.

Casual Fuggerday: The Recent Fugs and Fabs of Taylor Swift in the Wild

In which a woman who used to mostly get photographed with whatever dude she was dating is now more often photographed with a friend.  I was going to make a crack that model girlfriends are the new boyfriends, but you know what? I actually love seeing female friendships out in the wild. Friends are important and good! I support you, Taylor!
