Fug File: Well Played

Well Played, Katie Holmes


You may disagree with me — FEEL FREE, since the heat has totally melted my brain and I might seriously just be typing, like, “banana Jenga pantyhose lemur” right now — but I seriously feel like she looks better here than she has in a REALLY long time.

Mostly Well Played: The Ladies of Orange Is the New Black


Sure, it’s suspicious that we don’t have a snap of the front of Laura Prepon, but I think it’s safe to assume that there IS a front to this dress, and give her the benefit of the doubt.

Well Played, Abigail Spencer in Paule Ka


Sometimes you see an actress in an outfit and think, “Why isn’t she more famous?”

Abigail Spencer, This is Where I Leave You Premieres in Hollywood

For some reason, Abigail Spencer always makes me want to explain why you might know her name — from All My Children, from that brief arc on Mad Men as Sally’s teacher, from whatever she’s on now that I can’t remember. But she’s a total bombshell in this, sleek and refined, and it makes me wonder why people aren’t freaking out about her more. Maybe now they will.

Well Played, Tina Fey in Osman


I am not sure how convinced she looks by this, but I have to say, I rather enjoy it. Is this where you leave me? HAR.

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.
