Fug File: Who Fugged It More

Fug/Fab Face-Off: Reese Witherspoon vs Cate Blanchett


After we fugged Cate Blanchett’s pettitunic, a savvy reader pointed out that Reese wore something from the same Louis Vuitton collection to a premiere for This Means War — which, parenthetically, if her sitcom hasn’t proved Chelsea Handler should call off the acting career, then the sliver of her in the previews for this movie ought to seal the deal. Every time she brays, “A SEX TIEBREAKER YEEEEEES,” and then waves her arms around like she’s having a religious seizure, I want to quit this planet and try Mars.

On Cate, it was crazy, but it also hung better than this does. Adding the belt monkeys with the sequined layer, to where it looks like Reese belted a scarf to a party dress. If I were wearing that thing, I guarantee you I’d space out and end up drying my hands on it in the powder room. Fanciest. Dishtowel. Ever.

Which do you prefer?

Fug/Fab Face-Off: Katherine Heigl vs Herself


At the premiere of One For The Money last night — which looks crazy terrible and farcical and slight, by the way; I had heard good things about the books, so fans will have to let me know if this is a fair representation — Katherine Heigl’s styling was eerile familiar. I present to you Heigl circa 2008, at the Oscars:

And Heigl last night, in New York:

Golden Globes Fug/Fab Face-Off: Emma Roberts vs Erica Dasher


It’s the Battle of the Blues. Let’s DO THIS THING. In one corner, we have Emma Roberts:

Emma’s dress may actually be two-tone — it looks awfully black down by the skirt, or at least maybe like a darker blue. I don’t know. I wish the lighting were better (which… it’s not like this party was spontaneous, or doesn’t happen every single year, or is illuminated only by the glow of a hundred FRAGILE leg lamps, so can’t they fix that?). I think the architecture of the top is really pretty, but I can’t decide whether the little ruffles running down the skirt are interesting, or look like they recently fed the mice living in her closet. At least, for once, her eye makeup doesn’t make me want to attack her with some Pond’s.

In the other corner is Ms. Erica Dasher of Jane By Design:

Golden Globes Fug/Fab Face-Off: Rainey Qualley vs Freida Pinto


They’re not identical, true, but like Natalie and Angelina’s — whose dresses’ noteworthy red foldover feature sort of usurped each other — these share something in common: a shiny, maybe even textured blue-green fabric. Nobody ever said connective tissue had to be THICK. Halfway through day three of Globes Globes Globes Globes, you look for whatever fresh angles you can. By tomorrow I’ll probably be all, “These two women both have hair and skin and are not naked. WHO WORE IT BETTER?”

But who DID wear it better?

If three is a trend, then I guess maybe black is the new black. Who knew?

Who Fugged It More: Kate Winslet, or… Kate Winslet


You might remember this dress from the Mildred Pierce press tour, and how much I hated it, and how a lot of us thought it made her chest look  like a preying mantis. The prevailing sentiment was that people wanted to see it in different colors, to determine what the problem was: the blocking, or the garment itself.

Kate heard your pleas, Fug Nation. Or else she made those same pleas herself.

It is definitely better in red. I find the shoes to be clunky and forgettable, ditto the hair, and maybe she needs a redder lip here. But the dress itself, streamlined to one bold color and then the black detail, seems to be doing exactly what its intent was: flagrant public bodaciousness.

ESPECIALLY when you view it against the background of darkest night. It’s totally slimming and va-va-voom, but not in a way that has me afraid her midsection is going to end up on the Discovery Channel.

Which version do you prefer?
