Fug File: Well Played

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Well Played: Emily Blunt in Emilio Pucci

I might’ve had other suggestions for her head, although it’s not bad.

Emily Blunt The 20th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards -

But in that gown, she looks FABULOUS. She is slaying it. And she’s actually managed to be the only big celebrity – at least that I’ve seen so far — in red (or any truly assertive color), which feels like a miracle. Maybe with Oscar nominations out and her name not on the list, Emily figured, “Okay, well, screw it, I’m not saving anything for late February. RELEASE THE KRAKEN.”

Fairly Well Played: Jessica Chastain

I don’t usually remember to watch the late-night shows, but I happened to catch Jimmy Kimmel the other night when La Chastain was the guest in this very outfit:

And it was exactly as you’d expect: A VERY cute idea and a wonderful color, but too tight in the waist, which you can see even a little bit in this photo. When she sat down it got all bumpy and pinchy. Which happens to us all; I just figured her people would have a really good tailor on speed dial. I wish I did.

The snug waist looks better in this Lela Rose dress:

Golden Globes Well Played: Katie Holmes in Marchesa

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Marchesa gown so completely… chill.

She looks good, right? We were jonesing for Katie to pop out of the Cruise divorce looking insanely stylish and sleek, and instead we got this abominable Kors top and Belle’s dress after the beast accidentally sneezed on it (can you even believe that’s from the same designer as this?) and good lord I just can’t. So while this might not be turning my soul into an inferno, it’s solid and pretty and TWO BRACELETS and her CHEEKBONES and I’ll take it.

Golden Globes Well Played: Three Stars of Downton Abbey

In what is also a convenient space for me to let you know that the Downton recap will be a little later than usual this week, thanks to these here Globes. I HAVE BUT TWO EYES. I’m going to try to get it up by the end of the day on Wednesday, though. ONTO GLOBES MANIA.

Golden Globes Well Played: Diane Kruger in Emilia Wickstead

There is nothing more delightful than how THRILLED The Krugs was when The Affair won for Pacey. Other than perhaps the moment everyone on Twitter realized that this Globes brought us Pacey and Joey together again, in a medium-sized and very sweaty ballroom.


Golden Globes Well Played: Anna Kendrick in Monique Lhuillier

I think it was a year ago when Anna Kendrick showed up at Fashion Week and proceeded to attend almost every single show, saying she was blitzing everything so she could get a sense of it all. Since then, she’s made way more interesting choices, so let’s file “going to Fashion Week” under “Continuing Education” and call it a self-improvement exercise.
