Fugger: Abigail Spencer

TIFF Fugs and Fabs: The “August: Osage County” Premiere


Julia is back at it, soon to be beating the Oscar drum for her work in this adaptation of a play. I almost wrote “adaptation of a plane,” which is both absurd and an indicator of how dumb I am right now. But if she were adapting a plane for the big screen, she probably WOULD deserve an Oscar.

Critics’ Choice Television Awards: The basics


I had no idea this awards event was even a thing. I guess this was only the third one, though. I’m sure the ancient stonemasons who etched gossip tablets back in Olden Times said the same thing at the third Emmys.

Fugs and Fabs: The Vogue/MAC Party


I can’t believe anyone from Vogue felt up to another party. I’m still exhausted from the Met Gala and I didn’t even have to change out of my jammies.

Well Played, Abigail Spencer


Abigail Spencer is having a good year. She’s got Cowboys & Aliens coming out, which is going to be huge, and above all she’s stopped dressing like she has no self esteem:

This is really cool — it’s got a touch of the ’80s about it, but the bright and lively ’80s we LIKE to remember, not the garish and freaky ’80s from those photos we shove under the bed in the hopes nobody will find them until we are long gone and can’t hear the laughter. It’s “The Power of Love,” not “It’s Hip To Be Square.” It’s James Spader in Pretty In Pink, versus, let’s face it, pretty much the rest of Pretty In Pink.  Better Off Dead, and not Monique’s hair in Better Off Dead. You get the idea.

She also looked adorable at the actual Cowboys & Aliens premiere:

she is neither cowboy nor alien here

Well Played, Abigail Spencer


I feel like every time we feature Abigail Spencer here, one of us writes something like, “remember when she was Miss Farrell on Mad Men and she was having that SPOILER IF YOU’RE WAY BEHIND ON MAD MEN affair with Don and he left her in the car to get something in the house but BETTY WAS HOME and he BASICALLY FORGOT HER IN THE CAR?” Well. That episode was really good, it what I’m saying.

And so is her outfit! It kind of reminds me of the book-bag I carried in 9th grade — which was, of course, like many many other people’s bookbags in the early 90s, made of “Peruvian” “textiles”  — without all the irritating homework inside it.

Well Played, Abigail Spencer


Last time we featured Abigail here, the only nice thing I could say about her is that she’s a pretty girl. That still holds true:

But I can ALSO add that I love what she’s wearing. It feels like a page out of Demi Moore’s book, and in this millennium, that’s been a rather successful tome. I hope Abigail doesn’t delve further back in Demi’s archives and derive inspiration from the time she wore bike shorts to the Oscars. I don’t care how many Livestrong bracelets people buy: Lance has not made cycling THAT much fun.
