Fugger: Brooke Shields

Fugs and Fabs: Opening Night at the Metropolitan Opera

And now we have to play catch-up on everything that happened while we were wringing out our Emmy lightboxes. First up is this gala, which was FULL of dramatic gowns. When it’s time to go big, Diane Kruger rarely disappoints.

New York Fugshion Week: Celebs of Day Six

We talked to Padma when we saw her at Naeem Khan, and she was very gregarious — going so far as to poke fun at herself for wearing this outfit. We also witnessed some random dude butting in to offer Homeland’s Morgan Saylor some Valentino. I KNOW. We have no idea what happened but we hope it was legit.

The only other shows we wrote up were Badgley Mischka and Vera Wang, the highlight of which was John Legend bouncing both Chrissy Teigen and Petra Nemcova on her knee.

But we did go to Jenny Packham, and are happy to report that Christina Hendricks looked freaking wonderful. Here’s hoping she did some fruitful Emmy shopping.

Met Ball Well Played: Brooke Shields

Apparently, Brooke here tore her meniscus during a performance of The Addams Family, so she was stuck navigating the Met Ball — and its massive staircase — with a funked up leg and a cane.

And she totally worked it. The dress is kind of like webbing, in both a cool and a freaky way, but it’s almost beside the point: We watched her hobble around, without help, as tentatively as you can imagine, but she gritted her teeth and went up the damn stairs and worked it anyway. Slow clap, Brooke. Next time I vote you decorate your date a little — even Clair Huxtable BeDazzled her walking cast when she broke her toe, or whatever, chasing a snake out of her bedroom — but one thing at a time. You made it through upright, and you still look tremendous. I would shake your hand, but they’re both busy.

The Fug Lagoon

Just a guess:

But I feel like Brooke Shields probably didn’t want me to glance at her chest and think, “hey, remember the time that seagull flew RIGHT INTO Fabio? That was funny.”
