Fug File: WTF

What the Fug: Maggie Q

This picture makes me laugh.

Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott

Dylan McDermott looks like a retired secret agent who is regretting that he’s not a hotshot anymore, and Maggie Q, the wacky heiress who lured him out of the game and is now bankrolling his career as a chin model and semiprofessional baccarat player.

What the Fug: Zoe Kravitz

Will this hold as the worst outfit of ALL of 2016? Let me tell you, it is not throwing away its shot:

That humble fisherman must have been so surprised.

Scrolldown Fug: Naomi Watts in Derek Lam

Sometimes I wonder if red-carpet dressing is ripped from a video game: You have a life meter, and sometimes, if you forget to recharge it, you run dangerously low for awhile. This might explain why, after that triumphant Oscars Armani that y’all named the best of the night, we petered out a little. This starts out nicely, and very Naomi…

Naomi Watts

… but then, if you will, it runs out of watts.

but the shoes y’all the shoes


Fugs and Fabs: The Scream Queens at the Paley Center

I cannot believe this show got a second season. If this lives and The Grinder dies…

What the Fug(s): Selena Gomez

First: Jessica touched on this yesterday, but seriously, people need to COOL IT with running up to celebs and SHOVING their cameras in said celebs’ faces. In this case, this fan ran up and went so far as to kiss Selena on the cheek. Now, I don’t know what was said here; maybe he asked, maybe he didn’t. Looking at other photos from the incident, as much as all the media seems to be putting an adorable spin on the whole encounter — “Oh, he greeted her with a hug, and even got a kiss!” — it looks to me like Selena is trying REALLY hard to be polite but is also super uncomfortable and wants to get the eff out of there. He didn’t “get” a kiss, from what I can see; he took one.

There is an unsettling trend that goes beyond people simply being amateur paparazzi, wherein they get RIGHT up there for their selfies and their Snapchats and their Periscopes, and act like they’re owed that kind of access. It’s difficult enough for celebs when the paparazzi does it from a comparative distance. Famous people, as part of the job, do give up a certain modicum of privacy and obviously a large chunk of anonymity, but they have not forsaken their rights to a safe halo. It’s not okay to violate somebody random on a bus, you’d be enraged if someone ran up to your mother or sister or best friend or spouse and touched them this intimately, so why does her being a celebrity make it fine for you to assault Selena Gomez’s cheek? The answer: It doesn’t, and it’s not. Reclaim your humanity and stop being assholes.

What the Fug: Rihanna’s “Denim Desserts” for Manolo Blahnik

This collaboration is, simply put, bananas. The detailing is allegedly inspired by Rihanna’s hand tattoos, and the prices START at $895, and top out at $3995. Yes, nearly four-thousand dollars for a pair of shoes bedazzled to look like someone’s hand.


Independent Spirit Awards Fug Carpet: Stana Katic

Well. As we finish up the leftovers from the Independent Spirits, I guess it’s curtains for you, Stana Katic.

Stana Katic

No, I’m serious. It’s curtains.
