Fugger: Andrea Riseborough

Fugs and Fabs: The Birdman Premiere


I’ve heard Birdman is great, and maybe thinking about their great reviews has got everyone choosing her gown for this evening in a bit of a fog.  That said, the prospect of a round of premieres and screenings featuring Emma Stone and Naomi Watts and Andrea Riseborough and Amy Ryan fills me with anticipatory glee. THE OUTFITS.

Fugs and Fabs: Oblivion premiere


I don’t recall anyone talking about this movie before Tom Cruise abruptly started making the international rounds, and still nobody is talking about it now that it’s premiering here. In other words, Oblivion may be an apt name for its eternal fate.

If I don’t slap my own wrist, then who will?

Anyway, I think you’ll agree that this is an actual ray of sunshine compared with what she wore to a pre-party.

Fug or Fab: Andrea Riseborough


Thanks to her role in W.E., and what I have decided was a careful apprenticeship under Madonna’s sartorial wing, Andrea Riseborough burst on our scene last year and straight to a Fug Madness seed. But she’s been quiet since, until now.

I don’t love the trapezoid of netting — such things have their place, and usually, that place is on the ice while Scott Hamilton plotzes — and I wondered if her makeup was a hair off, but I didn’t really have any feelings one way or the other here until I saw the back.
