Fugger: Anna Wintour

Fugs and Fabs: Celebs at Schiaparelli at Paris Couture Week

If you asked me which American Sweetheart of the 80s I thought was most likely to pop up at Paris Couture Week, it would not have been Meg Ryan.

Tony Awards Well Played: Bee Shaffer in Marc Jacobs

It’s not that the Grande Dame herself — the one who stuck a leafy backdrop at the Tonys and ordered everyone in town to style the nominees, so that it would stop offending her delicate sensibilities — doesn’t look good. She does. (Except for the shoes. I don’t know if that’s admirable loyalty to a theme, or just that she isn’t taking her own advice and upping the glam factor on her feet.)  But Bee looks better.

I admire the ease with which Anna can slink around in that sheath, almost as if she’s basking in how far she can get without even appearing to be trying. But, as with the pair of them at the Met Gala, Bee wins this round — and Anna seems perfectly happy for it to be thus. That Marc Jacobs gown is like a colorful and funky homage to cocktail olives, and Bee’s hair and lipstick and regal mien bring the whole thing home. Do we think Anna is trying to shape her spawn into a fashion plate whether Bee wants it or not? If so, it seems to be working.

Met Gala Fug and Fab: Anna Wintour in Chanel and Bee Shaffer in Alexander McQueen

It’s only fair to put the event’s true overlord under the microscope. Spoiler: SHE PAINTED HER TOENAILS.

Fugs and Fabs: The Chanel Front Row

Kris Jenner has done it, you guys. She’s finally taken over the world. But something occurred to me just now. Is it POSSIBLE that Anna put Kimye on the cover of Vogue as a way to get closer to Kris…so as to bring her down forever, from the inside? I mean, it’s a long con. A long long long long con. But isn’t it possible that maybe, JUST MAYBE, Anna Wintour is playing double agent and is working, unbeknownst to us, to provide the very petard on which the Jennerdashians shall be hoisted? I decided this is true so I can sleep at night.

PS: I miss K. Stew.

Fugs and Fabs: The Louis Vuitton Monogram Celebration at MoMA

I like having Nicole Kidman out and about again. She has a boatload of projects in the next year, too, so hopefully it will be a more frequent occurrence, because girlfriend has some deliciously inconsistent taste.

Well Played: Celebs at the Clooney/Alamuddin Wedding

I cannot believe we were not invited to this event. On top of the fact that Intern George has literally not once ever shown up to work, I am beginning to think he doesn’t even care about us.

PS: For those of you (like me!) dying to see what Amal wore, the non-candid wedding snaps (including, surely, THE GOWN) are exclusive to Vogue* and have not yet popped up for our perusal.  That being said, this collection of photos proves that everyone looks glamorous ON a boat and slightly scared BOARDING a boat, and that Venice is romantic and beautiful. Let’s add it to the Fug Nation Tour of the World.*

*LATE BREAKING: This was a LIE. They’re confirmed exclusive to Hello! and People, which makes way more sense and is also exciting because this means I’ll get them in my mailbox. The dress is allegedly Oscar de la Renta.
