Fugger: Anna Wintour

Fugs and Fabs: Various Recent Tennis Events

The US Open is on the horizon — Heather and I had a long conversation last night (post-wine) about how we’re VERY NERVOUS FOR SERENA — and ergo, New York is aflush with tennis fever: Tommy Hilfger launched his new campaign with Rafa by having a faux tennis match in Bryant Park (this is VERY TOMMY; last Fashion Week, he turned the Park Avenue Armory into a football field [honestly, it was AWESOME]), and Nike finagled a variety of stars to come play tennis in the street, surely as a promotional event for the Open. Let’s eyeball everyone. Bonus shirtlessness and cute tennis outfits abound.

Fugs and Fabs: “Hamilton” Broadway Opening

Dilemma: I want shows to stay open on Broadway for a long time, so that theatre there thrives, but I ALSO want them to migrate west faster. Those desires appear to be at odds. Sigh. Fun Home, I’m coming for you. I don’t know when, I don’t know how, but I AM.

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.
