Fug File: Well Played

Happy Birthday, Prince Harry!

Happy 30th birthday, Harry. Let’s give you an extremely long and luxurious look (with bonus Wills and Kate appearances, of course. We would never ignore The Power of the Trio).

Well Played: Jessica Chastain in Prada

We complain a lot about Prada — or at least, we have lately — and so let’s raise a glass to the fact that we like what Miuccia did here.

Jessica Chastain

She looks so graceful and pretty, like James McAvoy could drift into frame and twirl her and dip her as part of a spontaneous dance number. Her makeup is great, the shoes are well-chosen, and, HURRAH, the bangs are slicked back, which really suits her face. FINALLY. Nobody puts Chasty in a corner. Which I guess makes her bangs the Jerry Orbach of this scenario, except less widely beloved. Sorry, Jerry. I didn’t mean to drag your memory into this. Let’s just think about “She’s Like The Wind” instead.

Well Played, Keira Knightley


This might be the first time I’ve wholeheartedly embraced the sheer. But I think this is kind of great. Has Fashion Week cooked my brain?

Fashion Rocks Well Played: Willow Shields

I chatted up both Willow and Kiernan Shipka at Fashion Week, within about half an hour of each other. And while both fourteen-year olds are totally on the same page in terms of poise and attitude and having great parents, they tend to be polar opposites when it comes to style. And it’s fun.

Willow Shields

I mean, maybe I’m nuts, but I totally think she’s pulling this off, and I think it’s HUGELY fun that she is even trying. She looks completely stoked to be there, she’s in a quirky patterned suit, her hair looks fab… this child is clearly having a great time, and frankly, she looks cooler than at least half the other people who RSVP’d. If Kiernan Shipka is, say, Junior Allison Williams, then this one is Junior Diane Kruger. There is room in my heart for both.


Mostly Well Played, Felicity Jones at the Toronto Film Festival

Almost all of these work for me. But it’s possible that’s just because Eddie Redmayne shocked me into general acceptance.

Well Played, The Imitation Game at the Toronto Film Festival

I am very excited about this movie — I hope it’s good! — because while my favorite genre, of course, is Romantical Troubles During War Times, I ALSO love The Thwarting of Nazis (ideally, one can have both), and I really am into code-cracking and also Using Fabulous Manor Homes For Secret Spy-like Missions. Plus, I am totally back in on Keira — she seems really happy lately, and I’ve missed her — and also, hello, Matthew Goode and Branson.

I will, in fact, stick the trailer after the jump, in case you want to see it:
