Fug File: Who Fugged It More

VMAs Who Fugged or Fabbed It More? Katy Perry vs. Coco Rocha, plus Well Played, Coco


I have NO IDEA who decided it would be a good idea for Katy Perry to wear something to the VMAs that Coco Rocha already wore to the Met Ball, but WHY would you set yourself up to be in a Who Wore It Better with COCO ROCHA??!?! That is not going to end well unless you are, like, Karlie Kloss and possibly not even then. It just feels like setting one’s self up for failure.

Who do you think wore it better? Get your judgement on in the comments, please.

Who Fugged It More: Miley Cyrus vs Katerina Graham


There’s something very dated-feeling about this.

I don’t know if it’s the dress with giant pocket flaps at the hip bones, or something about the bodice, or the aggressive goldness of the Chuck E. Cheese tokens with which it’s been decorated. But it keeps reminding me of the inappropriately grown-up things people bought at Express and wore to my middle-school formal dances (a girl’s first French twist thinks it needs her first cocktail dress too). It isn’t making me black out with rage, but it’s stale.

Miley’s version was less “our little girl’s NOT all grown up, but don’t tell HER that” and more “when did our little girl get into bondage?”

Fug/Fab Face-Off: Morena Baccarin vs. Sarah Hyland


When we saw this dress on Morena Baccarin during the SAG Awards weekend, I thought that it was kind of cute, yet maybe kind of cutesy and young for her. So along comes very cute and young Sarah Hyland wearing the same thing:

Sarah, unfortunately, lost the war on skirt wrinkles. She also picked silver pumps instead of the black ones Morena wore; I prefer the metallics in theory, but in execution those contribute a bit to what Jessica called “the uniform on the cutest carhop at the burger joint,” if you replace the last couple words with “cutest peanut-slinger NOT A EUPHEMISM at the Playboy Family Circus.” But while this whole thing feels more age- and style-appropriate for Sarah, her hair looks like she sped over in a convertible and she seems stiff and a little uncomfortable, so maybe Morena — on whom the fit also looked crisper — should have the edge. It’s a toughie. Warm up your voting fingers for next week’s Fug Madness and let’s get judgy.

Oscars Who Fabbed It More: Charlize Theron


Who knew that Charlize and Miley Cyrus looked so much alike? (Or, more accurately, as I said to Heather last night, who knew that Miley’s FACE was so good? She needs to never lose that haircut.) I also agree that Charlize’s super short crop (she buzzed her head for a movie role) is crazy flattering on her — in part because her face is crazy flattering on her:

As for her dress….well, check it out:

BAFTAs Who Fugged It More: Amy Adams or Alice Eve


I’m a little afraid of this dress.

It makes me think of the Headless Horseman. Like, her torso is a spindly wood after dark, and someone is going to ride through it with his decapitated head on a saddle just to freak out some weary travelers with the mess and pernicious smell. And, relatedly, the dress also makes me think of creeping rot. All of these are words a lady dreams of having written underneath her picture someday.

Alice’s dress is less elaborate:

Fug/Fab Face-Off: Shailene Woodley vs. Diane Lane


Last awards season, only about a month shy in the proceedings of where we are now actually, Shailene Woodley wore this lacy dress in support of The Descendants. Fug Nation was split — 56 percent of you loved it, and the rest felt either negatively or ambivalent, saying she looked too mother-of-the-bride or that it didn’t belong on anyone under 35. So let’s see how it flies with you on Diane Lane — who is over 35, could therefore be the mother of a bride, and if you think about it, kind of looks like a grown-up Shailene Woodley.

I wonder if the fact that Shailene’s hair covered the camisole strap part of the dress is a reason I’m liking the bodice part better on her. I also think the length is more ideal on Shailene, but somehow I can see the waist detail a bit clearer on the photo of Diane and it seems more flattering there. But either way, the whole concept does still scream “wedding,” with its combination of lace and satiny slip — on Shailene it’s the bridesmaid dress she’ll never wear again, and on Diane, she KIND OF looks like the Mother of the Bride had this on under her actual dress, trapped a groomsman in the coat room, and has begun a seduction. All of which is to say that I can’t quite find my way around this dress on Diane any more than I could on Shailene, except to say that to my surprise — even though it’s not a typically “young” dress — I might prefer it on the whippersnapper. No affront to Diane Lane intended. She’s older than I am, but if I woke up tomorrow and looked exactly like her, I would be so stoked that even the Mars Rover would look up from its crater and be like, “Huh, that was loud.”

PIck one (vis a vis the dress, not for life purposes):
