Fugger: Elizabeth Banks

Vanity Fair Oscar Party Fug or Fab: Elizabeth Banks in Jenny Packham

One of the many things I like about Elizabeth Banks is that she is NEVER boring. Even if I don’t like what she’s wearing, she never shies from color and pattern and she’s ALWAYS interesting. I applaud that. And she LOVES wearing a feathered skirt to the Vanity Fair party, as she did it in 2012, as well:

I like this effort SO much more than that; I’m just not sure if this is equal to the sum of its parts. Let’s do some figuring: the shoes are amazing; the color is divine; it’s refreshing to see someone show up at this event NOT wearing a giant gown for once; and, obviously, who doesn’t like a dramatic feathered cocktail skirt? I am, on the other hand, EXTREMELY sad she didn’t wear the matching coat. It’s possible that I’m delirious on lack of sleep, but as kooky as this is, I find it – and her — charming, and so I’m going to hand her the win here.

Will YOU?

Right now their frequent flier accounts are what’s catching fire AM I RIGHT. … Sigh. I’m ready for this to be done so American Hustle can premiere, and we can all watch me struggle to rub together three words about Amy Adams.

Fug or Fab: Elizabeth Banks

I am genuinely torn about this one, so let’s break it down in steps.

Her lipstick makes her look washed-out and thirsty. The top of the bodice looks a bit like a giant, coyly smiling pair of lips. The design is very flattering,  but then there’s an unfortunate crease right at the Mason-Dixon line. Even so, I thought this was striking, and then I saw the back:

it’s always the back, except when it’s not


Mostly Well Played: The German Hunger Games Premiere

Or as they call it over there, Die Tribute von Panem, which I love. I’m not really sure why they can’t just translate the words “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” into German, but this is why I am not in a position to make those decisions.

Fugs and Fabs: The Rest of the UK Premiere of “Hunger Games: Catching Fire”

I am absurdly excited that this movie is upon is, and — as fond as I am of the book — it’s about 92 percent because of the sheer cavalcade of outfits that must be coming.
