Fug File: Well Played

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.

Well Played: Emma Watson in Ralph Lauren Collection

You guys know that I am not that into a white dress — unless one is being bound in the bonds of holy matrimony or have fallen into a tear in the space/time continuum and woken up as an old timey nurse — but this is great on her.

Well Played: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Kate Winslet at the Divergent Premiere

SHAILENE: This color is great on me. Do you think everyone here is recalling the interview I gave where I said I like to sunbathe my vagina?

THEO: I am extremely handsome and Lady Mary was right to risk killing me with her own, presumably less tan, vagina. Also, yes, Shailene. Yes, everyone is thinking that. I cannot stop thinking about it.

KATE: I mostly am thinking about your neighbors and hoping that, at the very least, your sundeck is private. But let’s talk about me and how great I also look.

SHAILENE: We actually all look really pretty sharp, even if the Divergent logo behind us looks weirdly like a wine bottle from this angle and it makes it seem like we’re at some weird formal dystopian wine-tasting. Let’s see the back of my dress”

Well Replayed, Kate Middleton (with an assist from Princes William and Harry and George and also the dog)

This picture cracks me up. It looks like nothing more than William is making some ridiculous corny Dad joke that Kate thinks is cute and Harry just like [silent head shake]:

ANYWAY, these three are off to a wedding this morning — how pretty it looks at that church, no? All the daffodils. It’s very  I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud up in there — and none of that is new on Kate, although I have always liked that coat. (It’s Missoni, and you last saw it at this delightful event where the Queen was apparently hilarious and Kate and William were throwing giant darts at things and before THAT at Fortnum & Mason, where I wish someone would pick me up some marmalade. Underneath is apparently this Whistles frock, which she has had for years [and actually so have I, before I even knew she owned it; thanks, ASOS, for making Whistles available to us here in the US!) I must admit that I have a sincere fondness for Harry's yellow vest, which he also wore to this wedding that happened last year. Interesting trivia in that post as it looks like William's tie in this photo here is Harry's tie there, but I actually think they own matching ties, which just makes me sad that they're not taking Christmas photos in identical outfits; also, Cressida Bonas looks fully insane at that wedding. The bride at this particular wedding is apparently a longtime friend, and her father is an Olympic gold medalist equestrian who once dated Princess Anne. Don't you feel like the seating arrangements at big royal events must just be a complete minefield when it comes to not seating people next to people they used to go out with? Everyone's made out with everyone. Which obviously, is exactly the way it ought to be for maximum scandalous gossip and ergo exactly the way I like it.


It's the new official family portrait, and essentially, I am dead now. HIS SHIRT SAYS "GEORGE."

Well Played, Jennifer Connelly in Louis Vuitton

Is it wrong that I love this?

I hope not, but honestly, it doesn’t matter. It’s too late. I think she looks so cool. It’s kind of like someone was in the middle of Photoshopping this to see what it would look like in tweed, and then gave up because the diagonal indecision ended up better then either one alone. This is one of those things I’m glad I DON’T own because I might march around in it thinking I am part-spy, like a demi-Sydney Bristow, and down that road lies a lot of pulled muscles.
