Who Covered It Better: Kate Hudson on Harper’s Bazaar vs LC on Cosmo


We already wrote up Lauren Conrad’s springy January 2014 cover of Cosmo, and then Harper’s Bazaar came along with what I’d term the grown-up version:

It’s the adult version of the flouncy little bra-top dress, a sexier version of the California beachy-blonde subject, the more famous lady, and obviously, it has cover lines that do not include unexpected lower-case vowels. The color palette is less HOT HOT HOT GET LAID A LOT than it is Be Super Classy This Year Y’all, and instead of an interview about “getting past the haters,” this one simply offers us “the real deal.” It’s like an entire demographic jump north of the other one. The question is, which one do you like better? Neither dress lights me on fire, and both women look charming and fun, but something about the overall mien of this one stresses me out a lot less, plus Kate’s smile here is both so wholly her and so wholly Goldie, in a way that delights me. I’m sure this is just me inching toward Harper’s demo and out of Cosmo’s, but I am going to give this cover the win.

But it is YOUR opinion I want to hear:

Emmy Awards Who Fugged It More: Julianne Hough vs Lena Headey


When this came down the runway two weeks ago, Jessica wrote that it’s what Kate Middleton would wear when she decided to mess with everyone¬†and give the Queen a coronary.

I’ve decided that’s exactly right, then, because at times Julianne Hough’s style is totally “Kate Middleton, If She Were Trying To Give The Queen A Coronary.” Her head looks tremendous, but the rest of her looks like she’s living a Katy Perry fever dream.

But at least the gown has pretty DNA. I have no idea what the heck is going on with Lena Headey’s:

Who Fugged It More: Grimes vs 2 Chainz


This might be my favorite one of these EVER. Let us begin with Canadian musician Grimes, a.k.a. Claire Boucher:

I don’t even know what to say. Do I commend her for matching her chunky gold necklace to her ornate pants? Is there any point to discussing the dirty kicks she’s wearing with them? Why are those cut like pajamas? What is on her arm? Is that a blood-pressure cuff? Did she anticipate flying into a white-hot heart-stifling rage at any point in the night, and if so, did it happen when she laid eyes on this man?

VMAs Who Fugged It More: Iggy Azalea vs Ciara vs Iggy Azalea


Yes, you read that right — Iggy Azalea wore not one but TWO see-through outfits, which means this is going to be a dogfight. Poor Ciara. All that effort into looking super naked, and some random Australian singer takes her thunder and flosses with it. In other news, I just imagined Iggy Pop in these outfits and now I can’t unsee it. You’re welcome.

If you're still conscious, please vote on which is MORE egregious:

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?”
