The Fug Manager: Elizabeth Debicki in Vionnet

You might recall Elizabeth from playing Jordan Baker in Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby. She’s getting a lot of press lately thanks to The Night Manager, as well, and yes, if you’re wondering, she IS as tall as this makes her look (she’s 6’2″):

She recently worked with Cate Blanchett, and I wonder if a little bit of the special sauce tried to rub off on her. This is a gutsy gown. I’m actually surprisingly on board with the mesh-y poncho quality of the top, but the tiers on the skirt are distracting and over the top for me. And not for nothing, the pattern is giving me flashbacks to my sixth grade science fair project. By the looks of this dress, and by my memory of the glasses of orange juice I left in our warm pantry, she has enough penicillium mold here to treat several diseases.

What say you, Tom Hiddleston?


The Man From F.U.G.C.L.E.: Elizabeth Debicki in Valentino

I suspect there’s a contingent of people who will find this floaty and romantic and fine, and I have tried to join it, because I’m having trouble articulating my precise issues — so I thought maybe I was just being difficult.

But it’s very flat and unremarkable on her. The colors read dull, like seaweed washed up on a beach.  The seaming looks a wee cheap. There’s no real styling to speak of, so it’s just basically barren to me — it’s a thing she put on, not something she’s wearing. And I think she can aim higher. Anyone who saw her in Great Gatsby knows she is capable of some serious wow — she was dripped in all manner of dramatic things, and yet she possessed them wholly – so let’s DO THIS, Debicki. Bring the thunder.

Comic-Con 2015 Fugs and Fabs: The Entertainment Weekly Party, Part 1

As far as I can tell, Jennifer Lawrence did not walk the red carpet at this thing, which is unfortunate because that means we’re stuck with pictures of her looking like a total goof outside the event. Then again, if there’s anyone in Hollywood who’s unafraid of a ticket on the Fast Train to Gooberville, it’s that girl.

Cannes Closeout: Fugs and Fabs of What’s Left

Everything! Must! Go! Including Laetitia’s outfit. I really do want that to leave.

At least this one is in Sydney, which is ALWAYS good for some random fugs.
