Fugger: Abigail Spencer

Toronto Film Festival Fugs and Fabs: “This Is Where I Leave You” Premiere(s)

A movie that features both Tina Fey and Connie Britton (and Jason Bateman) feels like it’s hitting a MAJOR Fug Nation sweet spot. All it needs is Pacey holding a gallant umbrella over someone’s head while George Clooney smiles calmly and Prince George toddles past in pursuit of something totally inappropriate to eat.

New York Fugshion Week: Celebs of Day Two

– Rebecca Minkoff put 3D glasses on all the seats for viewing her last five outfits — the patterns were supposed to jump out at us, I guess, although ours didn’t work. The front row had actual sunglass-style ones, though, and we wouldn’t be surprised if Zosia Mamet randomly wore hers around town just for fun.

– There were shenanigans on the Nonoo runway, after which we ran across Emma Myles (Leanne from Orange Is The New Black) and talked to her about her teeth on that show. She was a hilarious delight.

Hilarrible Baldwin brought her baby — sans earplugs — to Carmen Marc Valvo. There, we spotted two MORE Orange Is The New Black cast members, Selenis Leyva and Jackie Cruz, who then also made it to Nicole Miller. That show is getting some GOOD publicity this week.

– At Monique Lhuillier, Jennifer Morrison’s hair looked terrible, and the world continued turning apace on its axis.

– We didn’t write it up, but we also saw Zimmermann. And while it was devoid of much potential future Middletonia, it DID have a lot of gold lamé, and hopefully we can rustle up some photos of it for you.

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
