Fugger: Elle MacPherson

Fugs and Fabs: The G’Day USA Event


I need to confess something. Remember that time Rose Byrne wore a jumpsuit to the SAGs? And I called her one of the Flying Elvises and basically thought it was ridiculous? I have totally softened on that stance. I’m still not sold on it, and I still think the jumpsuit as a concept is the enemy of a lady’s groin, but there’s something really brassy about her doing that — back then, no one had yet for such a formal occasion. And she has this innate coolness that makes me think she pulled it off as well as anybody could, so… listen, I just needed to get that off my chest before we talk about what is currently on her chest.

There was no full photo that showed what the top half of this pose looked like, so I just have to share the madness with you thusly.

Unless this Top Model UK event was promoting a photo shoot challenge in which the models are asked to hold something between their knees — you know, lettuce, a remote control, a whimsical commemorative QEII bobblehead — then I am not totally sure this could have ended (or technically begun, since this is the bottom) in a way that’s even REMOTELY beneficial to a modeling competition. They need to at least PRETEND they’re teaching useful stuff, rather than, “Pretend your face is your left knee and Ryan Gosling is your right knee. Okay. MAKE OUT.”

Here’s how it all looked once Elle straightened out her legs.

Fug or Fab: Elle MacPherson


I guess Elle MacPherson is the person you send out on your massive, multi-national Fashion Star press blitz when the one person who’d really get you press (J. Simp) is home gestating, and the other one (Nicole Richie) is…I don’t know. Home designing jewelry and hanging out with her kids?

And my god, has she committed. First the Globes gowns, and now this — it’s like she decided if she’s making a comeback, SHE’S DOING IT BIG. Which, honestly, I kind of appreciate. If something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing crazy, is my motto. Which is why my house is decorated the way it is. And I don’t hate this. I wish — predictably — that I couldn’t see her bra. And I think it’s a Whole Lot of Look, a Look that wouldn’t be out of place on a lost episode of Dynasty, wherein everyone attends a fancy party at which Secrets Are Revealed (so, everyone episode of Dynasty). But maybe that’s okay.

Is it?

Golden Globes Well Played or Overplayed: Elle MacPherson


When I saw Elle MacPherson on the red carpet on Sunday, I COULD NOT understand what she was doing there, and so pimped out. Thank God, Twitter explained to me that she’s working on whatever the hell that Nicole Richie/Jessica Simpson reality show is. Fashion Project Catwalk Show Star? Whatever. But the way she’s turned out, you’d think she was not only up for a Golden Globe, but that she INVENTED the Golden Globes.

What do you think?

NBC Upfugs-and-fabs


Ah, upfronts, the time of year when we say things like, “Man, NBC must regret that talent deal with Jimmy Smits, because it’s NOT HAPPENING,” and, “One Tree Hill lives AGAIN?” and “A musical starring Debra Messing? REALLY?” So really, it’s a very capsy week. Jessica and I were saying how thrilled we are that Debra “Hot Mess” Messing will be out and about now that Smash is a go, and yet, she was neither the hottest nor the messiest at the upfronts party. That honor may go to either Christina Aguilera or Katharine McPhee. Sigh. Singers, man. They always deliver.
