Fug File: WTF

Golden Globes Fug Carpet: Keira Knightley in Chanel

Keira’s face is perfection. The rest of her suggests that Karl picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue…

Mostly Well Played: Maggie Grace in Christian Siriano (But Then WTF)

It wasn’t until I got the large version of the photo that I noticed the flashes preyed on Maggie here:

This was really working for me — it’s material we’ve seen before on Willow Shields, but put to better and more flattering use here, especially with the unexpectedness of the snug navy top. But then the flashes stole her mystery. This is basically why every celebrity or stylist needs to have an industrial-strength camera in-house for all their test runs. Jessica and I used to joke that we were going to open up a store on Melrose or something that simulated red-carpet conditions, so people could see how their clothes would hold up. Apparently that service is needed.

But, I feel for her — Maggie Grace is not a big red-carpet hound. I interviewed her once at Fashion Week and she basically said she feels pretty hopeless at the fashion stuff; the dog-and-pony-show doesn’t seem to be her bag, particularly. Which is fine. It’s why I’m sorry this otherwise good idea backfired on her a little bit.

HOWEVER, there is NO justification for the WTFery she deployed last night.

You can’t just shrug it off and say, “Clothes? I don’t know. Whatever.” Because you know. You HAVE TO KNOW. Never has anyone put on this outfit and NOT been aware that she looks like a dominatrix at a business seminar. So on the one hand, it’s entertaining to see someone whose style is SO all over the map that you know she’s not bothering with “style” at all; on the other, WHO ARE YOU? I have no idea what story you’re telling, but I suspect it ends with a whip and a sex-swing demo in Conference Room B.

What the Fug: Cara Delevingne at the W Magazine Party

This seems somewhat innocuous from the front:

She’s been hanging out with the Kardashijenners lately — courtside with Kendall and Khloe at a Lakers game, etc. — so the emphasis on the cleavage is hardly a surprise. This whole thing feels like she found it in a crater (or krater?) on Planet Kardashia.

But a look from the side reveals that it’s not just fabric spots on the side. In fact, yes, it is see-through:

The Golden Fugpass: Dakota Blue Richards

DBR here was in The Golden Compass, and I was CERTAIN her parents were celebrities, but I was wrong.

"Kooza" By Cirque Du Soleil - VIP Performance

I am fairly sure I am right, however, when I note that the All Powerful Granny Panties Lobby is marking this one down as a win.

WTF 2014: Naked and Transparent

Why am I putting you through this? To make ABSOLUTELY SURE you’re ready and willing and stoked to kick 2014 to the curb. But also, this was my attempt to keep all these yahoos from bogging down the “Worst of the Rest” slideshow, because all that awfulness that DIDN’T depend on transparency — or nudity, or both — deserved its moment in the sun. Separated out like this, anyone who’s too terrified to wade in here can scroll on past. But I recommend it just for the fact that you will learn who designed Charli XCX’s Peter Cottontail number, and no, the answer is not, “She glued those puffs on herself.”


What A Fugging Year: More of the Worst Outfits of 2014

As with our slideshow of Other Bests, these are the leftovers we couldn’t cram into our slideshow for The Cut. There was just so much bad stuff this year. SO MUCH. And this doesn’t even include the really naked stuff. THAT’s coming later. Oh yes. It’s on its way. You can’t escape.
