Fug File: Who Fugged It More

Fug/Fab Face-Off: Melanie Griffith vs. Duchess Kate


Melanie Griffith has chosen to stop into the ring against the Duchess of Cambridge, who recently wore a creamy version of this Barbara Cassola dress, primarily to great acclaim.

Unfortunately for Melanie, it’s hard to gauge whether we like it in black, because she either decided to roll the transparency dice or fell prey to the Flesh Flash (aka, when you don’t realize we can see everything until the photographers really get going). Or is it lined on top but not below the waist? I don’t know, but mostly this making me applaud Kate either for getting away with one by wearing the white version during daytime, or somehow making damn sure hers was locked up tight and wouldn’t cause an international incident. Melanie Griffith, I feel like, will let this roll off her back if it caught her by surprise. Kate would be branded a full month with the scarlet H for “hussy.”

Who Fugged It More: Kat Graham vs Chloe Grace Moretz


If you’re wondering why you cannot escape this Proenza Schouler shirt… well, that’s an excellent question.

Chloe Grace Moretz galloped through the early Fug Madness rounds this year largely thanks to this but she wore it with pants that belled only a little. I am quite astonished that anybody decided to give it a second life, but true to Kat Graham form, she did it and refused to go halfway. She put ENORMOUS pants with it. And so, while that blouse will ALWAYS be the tragic uniform of a wilting rodeo clown, I’m forced to try and decide which execution makes it all… less ridiculous. In the end, I’m going with Kat, because her pants don’t look like they shrank in the wash, and somehow the wackier bottoms make the top look less randomly hideous and more like they’re folding into someone’s top-to-toe hallucination.

Oscars Fug/Fab Face-Off: Reese Witherspoon vs. Tina Fey


I’m quite delighted we got two deep purple gowns, because it’s one of my favorite colors, but I wish they had not been quite SO of-a-piece. Reese Witherspoon’s version is from Oscar de la Renta, and I’ll say it up front: It’s not my favorite of the two.

I don’t think I would be that hot on it anyway, even if I hadn’t already seen Tina’s and judged to be lovelier. The cups somehow just come off like someone glued on recycled old shoulder pads. It’s not a plot twist I particularly needed.

Tina’s is Versace, and it’s a rare instance when Mr. de la Renta’s storied house loses that particular fight, but here we are:

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.
