Fug File: Well Played

Grammys Kind of Well Played: Ariana Grande in Versace

Can we also talk about how WEIRD she is in interviews? The whole time she was talking to Ryan, she did that thing where she held her head at a 45 degree angle constantly, and she clung to Big Sean like a wind might blow him away. For someone who’s been working since she was little, she seemed like she was recently released from a youth spent in a cave away from all other human contact.

Grammys Well Played: Jane Fonda in Balmain

This is not the first jumpsuit from this line that I secretly like, but this one, I suspect I enjoy SPECIFICALLY in this context.

The EXQUISITE¬†unimpressed¬†expression on Jane’s face, coupled with the pose, the necklace more dramatic than Kanye when his dinner is late, and that fabulous shade of green, is collective PERFECTION. I don’t want to see this outfit ever again anywhere else — not on Gwyneth, a model, a Lohan, a Kardashian, Amal, or even Intern George (note: I MIGHT want to see that actually). This is it. This is how it was meant to be worn: by Jane, like a truth bomb being dropped into a room full of delusion. “Look at all you sad mice scurrying around in your see-through outfits,” she is thinking. “Sit down, you woeful children, and let me show you how to bring the noise.”

Grammys Well Played: Taylor Swift in Elie Saab

There are a lot of reasons for me to be Not So Into This, primarily that I am generally unmoved by this sort of skirt. HOWEVER:

57th GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

I think that if the whole dress had been long, it would have been too stiff and uptight for the Grammys, and while the underskirt is VERY short, I think she’s working it. The color variations are gorgeous, the shoes are interesting, the bodice is cool and, essentially, I am giving this to her. Take it, Taylor. Take it before I change my mind.

Well Played, Juliette Binoche

Juliette Binoche is ALL ABOUT white blazers now. Blazers with pants, blazers turned into a dress. I must say, I think she’s basically working it. I wish someone would interview her and find out all her beauty secrets. I want to know them ALL.

Well Played, Jamie Chung

I basically want to go up to her and high-five her for wearing Interesting Shoes That Aren’t Beige Thank God:

The 13th Annual VES Awards - Cocktail Reception

And then I want to smack someone upside the head for making her pose for this snap in front of a pile junk in the corner of a hotel ballroom. I guess we can’t have everything.

Well Played, Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Cushnie et Ochs

There are a lot of reasons to dislike this, but I think she is WORKING IT. With bonus Channing. (I dreamt last night that I was dating Channing and while the dream was irritatingly PG (and sadly there was no welding), he was SUCH A NICE Dream Boyfriend. Jenna, you lucky girl.)
