Fug File: Who Fugged It More

Who Fugged It More: Solange vs. Rita Ora in Maticevski


A full six months after Rita Ora debuted it in white, Solange has chosen to wear our old friend High Fashion Colostomy Bag.

I enjoy that, back in December, Rita attempted to sell it with an expression trained on the upper middle distance, pensive, like a musical theatre soloist wondering longingly to the rafters if Marius will ever look at her or only ever be into that drippy bore Cosette. Whereas Solange is looking at me like she cannot figure out where this community production of Our Town went so awry. And yet in a weird way, that blankness is selling this better than Rita’s attempted depth. What sayeth ye? Please bear in mind that I am writing this late at night, about an hour after I attempted to pay for water at 7-11 with my Banana Republic card, so… you know.

CFDAs Fug/Fab Face-Off: Nina Dobrev vs. Juliette Lewis


Juliette is in Christian Siriano; Nina is wearing Lela Rose. One is in something youthful, the other in something a bit stodgy on her. But the common denominator is the feathery skirt, so in the spirit of Mad Max let’s throw them in the Thunderdome and see which one emerges.

Who Fugged It More: Kim Kardashian vs Rita Ora


I cannot believe we live in a world where a) two people wore pink PVC dresses on the same night to the same party, and b) it was one of those people’s SECOND TIME IN FOUR MONTHS wearing a pink PVC dress. Why does everyone want to look like something you’d get in a saucy bachelorette-party goodie bag?

Oscars Fug/Fab Face-Off: Amy Adams vs Sofia Vergara


 

Another pairing you wouldn’t think would be going head-to-head. It’s a very MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch kind of day on GFY.

Who Fugged It More: Olivia Munn vs. Malin Akerman in Ralph Rucci


Well, this wasn’t a dress I was in a hurry to see again, but here it is, a year and a week after Malin Akerman donned it at the 2014 Globes:

It seems to fit Olivia better, but honestly, this has the whiff of Last Dress Standing about it rather than  being anyone’s first choice. I think one of my beefs with it is, it’s not a gown you can really do much to enhance. The sleeves and the sternum netting make it tough to accessorize, it doesn’t seem like it’d look that great with an updo, and it apparently didn’t inspire either one of them to up her lipstick game… Frankly, Olivia’s glazed expression is a little, “Please ask me about my torso so that you won’t ask me about this movie.” To declare a winner feels sort of wrong but maybe we can say which one is losing less.

British Fashion Awards Fug/Fab Face-Off: Anna Kendrick in Victoria Beckham vs. Anna Kendrick in Burberry Prorsum


This is a really similar silhouette to the Burberry she wore to the London Theatre Awards.

And so I’m tossing Anna into the ring with herself, with two similarly conceived looks duking it out for supremacy. In one corner: that other dress and its stunning color, its funky texture, cool ring, but the air of being a very beautiful towel boringly fit to her chest. In the other, one that might be a wee pinch on one side of the bodice, but with great metallic accessories and a cleanness, a crispness, which the other seems to lack. It’s about two bracelets shy of great, but it also might be the kind of thing she should wear to a daytime BAFTA tea party rather than a nighttime shindig honoring the very best in fashion. Because this looks like the admittedly very impressive best of Ann Taylor.
