Fug File: Who Fugged It More

Who Fugged It More: Rashida Jones vs. Michelle Dockery

These ladies didn’t wear the same dress from the Prada collection that had faces plastered all over everything, but that doesn’t mean we can’t compare. Michelle’s had the face down on the bottom half of her dress; Rashida’s is more… everywhere:

Dockery wins the hair battle, thanks to Rashida’s apparent feud with grooming products. Neither bodice is particularly appealing to me — both flatten them out, although Rashida’s might be a shade more criminal. Dockery’s looks like the face was concussed by a bag of Skittles; this one looks like the Wizard of Starburst is ripping out her memories and replacing them with an ad for an iPod Shuffle. Dockery’s had shape, but it also sliced her across the chest more; this one looks like a pillow case with cat ears. At least Rashida handily wins the shoe battle — those are awesome — but as for the rest… I might not be able to pick a winner, because that would imply even a modicum of favoritism one way or the other, and that simply won’t do.

Fug/Fab Face-Off: Jennifer Hudson vs Chloe Grace Moretz

It’s not every day that a dress someone wore to the Teen Choice Awards gets donned by an adult at a Grammy party. But Chloe Grace Moretz is a pretty mature teen, and Jennifer Hudson has crazy young skin, so maybe they meet in the middle. I would also like to meet them there, but sadly, that ship has sailed straight down my forehead furrow.

On Chloe, Jessica noted that this looks like a Swatch ad come to life, and that was deeply apt. Jennifer’s spiked short cut and sassy red lip give this the right, dressier dose of maturity — it doesn’t look like she’s in a teenager’s clothes, nor did it look like the teenager had stolen hers. I think this dress, as loud and lively as it is, might be a rare breed that can adapt to the wearer and look right when it’s treated properly, and both ladies did that. So I actually think they BOTH pulled it off. If you’re going to dress like the credits of an 80s comedy, at least make sure you look like the star of the movie.

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.

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.
