Fug File: Well Played

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

AND WE’RE OFF. Nine News in Australia had footage of the three of them changing planes in Sydney and it’s kind of amusing for a couple of reasons: first, it’s footage of people getting out of a car, greeting some folks, and then getting on a plane, which is simply not that dramatic unless you’re watching Scandal. Second, George is waving his arms and legs all over the place throughout the entire process. Third, and almost best, the news anchors are getting all excited to see the plane change and a bus pulls up and parks right in front of their camera and the whole studio groaned and yelled at the camera person to move.  I don’t know why it tickled me, but it really did did. ANYWAY. At the plane change, Kate was wearing her Max Mara gray wrap we last saw last February (when she was pregnant), while William and George were both in blue and looked like a dude in a suit and a baby, respectively.

BUT ON TO THE MAIN EVENT. Obviously, they changed to deplane here in Wellington, New Zealand, and changing brought with it a pillbox hat! George in a sweater with wee Queen’s Guards on it (I think; the video of them deplaning seems to support this theory)! And William in a suit still! Yes, I DID watch them get off the plane on the livefeed and here is what I can tell you about Prince George and the next 19 days: HE WANTS TO GET DOWN. NOW. PLEASE. DOWN. ALL THE TIME DOWN. He’s also really very cute and seems awfully chipper for someone who’s been traveling for 24 hours. Is it wrong that I might want a sweater with the Queen’s Guard on it myself?

Casual Fuggerday: Emma Stone

In case, you were wondering, Emma Stone continues to be the cutest:

Even when she’s posing in front of a drainpipe.

Well Played, Jennifer Connelly in Louis Vuitton

I never fail to be amused by how many of the photos from the Noah press tour end up yelling “NO” at the camera:

While I agreed yesterday, about Jennifer’s McQueen topiary, here I am going to argue with the backdrop. While I recognize the potential argument that her top looks a bit Disco Derby Queen, and the belt probably didn’t also need to be patent — look, far be it from me to say that not everything needs to be shiny, but honestly not everything needs to be shiny — I also think she looks good in this, in a kind of Vaguely Inspired by American Hustle  kind of way, just with considerably less cleavage. Sometimes, that’s enough.

Well Played: Shailene Woodley in Zuhair Murad

Every time I think I have a bead on what Shailene is going to do, she changes it up on me.

Well Played and Fug or Fab: Cobie Smulders in Monique Lhuillier and Sportmax

I’m sure a small part of Cobie was like, “Really? I have my umpteenth Captain America screening on the same night as the last How I Met Your Mother?” And then the rest of her probably thought it was best not to dwell, and spent the evening encouraging her man Taran Killam to make Jebediah review it on Weekend Update.

Here is what she wore first, to promote HIMYM on Letterman:

She looks really nice in that Lhuillier — it’s funky and classic all at the same time. So, a little Robin Scherbatzky, and a little Robin Sparkles, rolled up into a dreamy burrito.

Presumably after she did the taping, she had to make a quick change, because this is how she exited the building:

Well Played: Emma Stone in Valentino and Balenciaga

It is not the first time, and won’t be the last, that we have noted that THANK GOD these two like each other because this PR trail is going to be long and winding.
