Fug File: Who Fugged It More

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.

Fug/Fab Face-Off: Julianne Moore vs Jennifer Connelly in Louis Vuitton


Julianne here is getting raves for Still Alice, which delights me because I used to work for one of the directors, and he and his husband — they did this movie jointly — are wonderful people and I really want them to clean up with some bigtime hardware.

I also like this so much more than some of the more elaborate bags she puts herself in — partly because she herself is aging SO RIDICULOUSLY WELL that I like seeing her in something with a youthful bent. It’s not too short on her, like Jennifer Connelly’s first look (what a difference mere inches can make), or potentially her second. I generally don’t go for patterned tights, but these seem to complement the whole thing very well. And her booties seem to have the right level of personality to play harmoniously with everything.

You can see the texture and detail of the dress itself — and the shoes — a bit better from this side angle:

Fug/Fab Face-Off: Victoria Beckham vs. Katie Holmes


Back in the day, this might have been a cakewalk for Katie Holmes, but Posh has turned herself into a formidable opponent — and Katie, less of one.
