Fugger: Claire Danes

Fugland


I feel like Claire Danes is usually the unimpeachably pretty dresser — it’s usually sparkly, it’s well-fitted, it’s hard to dislike even if it’s not the knockout best of the night. But she picked a rough one for the SAGs and then followed it up with this:

That bodice doesn’t look like static that clings; it looks like static that full-on stalks. With binoculars and disposable cell phones and eventually its own Lifetime movie.

The good news is, Claire Danes should keep her hair like that forever, because the gentler color really suits her. The bad news is, the dress. The good about THAT is, presumably she took it off later and won’t have to deal with it again.

Fab, then Fug, the Covers: Claire Danes and Lady Gaga on Glamour


Let’s start with the January 2014 effort:

This is the third January cover that has seemed very summery to me, so there must be some market research out there that suggests by this time people are hella sick of coats and winter and sweaters, and just want to imagine they’re in a gazebo on a warm summer day, waiting for a hot man to bring them some pink lemonade (heavily spiked). And while I freely admit the weird twine criss-crossing her is super bizarre and bondage-adjacent, she HERSELF looks absolutely gorgeous and I love the idea of the cover. We see Claire so stressed out on Homeland that it’s brilliant to keep to so cheerfully simple and have her radiate happiness. She also looks almost sultry, which is another thing I don’t generally associate with her. So Glamour has managed to give us a fresh look at Claire Danes, without making her look nothing like Claire Danes. Well played. Wherever she is, I want to go to there, although I’d replace the drunken lemonade with something involving ginger. I’m super into alcoholized ginger right now.

I don’t think Glamour fared as well with Lady Gaga:

Well Played, Claire Danes


I realize that you may not all be on board with me here, but can I tempt you with some Aaron Eckhart?

I just cannot resist a pattern, especially if it makes you look like you’re hosting a formal brunch poolside in the 70s, where everyone in attendance will be hung over and just dying to gossip about everything that went down at the key party the night before. They, too, were all tempted by some Aaron Eckhart.

Emmys Fug Carpet (But Pre-Show Well Played): Claire Danes


I love her, and I enjoyed reading the profile of her in The New Yorker a couple of weeks ago, and I would like to applaud her for wearing lipstick on a night when so few women did. And ergo I am distraught that at least four people must have seen her in this and no one pulled her aside and said, “GIRL. NO. This makes Gwyneth’s pink Oscar dress look like a miracle of fit. This whole thing needs to be yanked up and pulled over and given more fabric and — no, you know what? No. Take it off. TAKE IT OFF, CLAIRE. I don’t care if I have to run down to Anthropologie and buy you something from Free People, you’re not wearing this.”
